Oregon to abandon its failed ObamaCare exchange

Oregon to abandon its failed ObamaCare exchange after months of trying to get a website up going spending $400 million taxpayer dollars, Oregon will be joining the HealthCare.gov.exchange.

My questions are these.

Will the so-called website builder Oracle.return the $4 to 6 million it reportedly spend to build a non-working site, will criminal investigation happen?

Will both Gov. John Kitzhaber (D-Ore.) and Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) do the right thing and not run for office both are up for both up for reelection.

 

Congress, requests from Democrats and Republicans have triggered a federal investigation of the broken system. One would hope, will it led to anything I don’t think so! I think it’s just a dog and pony show for the public.

Last of all do you know that $400 million is just short of a 1/4 of a billion dollars let that run around you mind for a few, 1DollarBillPlain

Looking back at 2013

Looking back on 2013  was it a great year no it was not, a bad year no I would class it as an in between year

The big story of the year was the rollout of the Obamacare website

and it’s total failure to run, It was totally unusable for more than two weeks.Then the first fix they tried was to tell people just to do the paper forms which did not work as well then Obama had to come out and admit he lied to the public about you could keep your Doctor if you wanted to! Which   was a total embarrassment to both Obama and the Democrat party

The Story next would be the Spying. Edward Snowden a former member of the NSA let loose a flood of information on the NSA collecting Phone records of people in the US not some of us but all of us

Which started a firestorm.Obama had and still has both sides coming at him over this. No one is happy to hear about this No matter how the mainstream press tried to spin it and to this day there are still some very angry people on both sides.

The year-end in Entertainment News.The big story being “’Duck Dynasty’ It seems the A&E were trying to cut off their own nose to spite their own face when it came to this one.

It seems that one of the stars of Duck Dynasty (Phil Robertson ) in a interview with GQ magazine let his feeling and what the Bible say about homosexuality out ” that it was a sin”and the folks over at GLAAD took offence and made a big stink to A&E about it , So A&E put Phil Robertson on suspension this backlashes on A&E big time leading to millions of people boycotting A&E on all social media, even gay people thought A&E went way overboard on this . In the end, the public won and Phil Robertson  is back

Senator try’s to hide his statement about Obamacare

Senator try’s to hide his statement about Obamacare. It seems like Sen.Mark Warner(D-VA) would like voters in the upcoming election to forget about what he said there is even you tube video with him saying it.But the good Senator or one of his staff made it so we can’t be embedded on blogs or news sites But the good folks over at http://www.breitbart.com managed to get the video

http://landing.newsinc.com/shared/video.html?freewheel=90085&sitesection=breitbart&VID=25347585

What did Sen.Mark Warner(D-VA)say why the same thing Mr Obama said “if you like your health insurance, you can keep your health insurance,” now it seems  Sen.Mark Warner(D-VA) want you and I to forget that statement. I  think what the good Senator is forgetting is what we tell our kids all the time don’t post things on the web or Youtube you don’t want to came back to you one day.

Not to leave Sen.Mark Warner(D-VA) alone here is a list of others

Just a tiny word cam mean so much “IF”

if

Just a tiny word cam mean so much “IF”.If I had done more, If I had done less.If I had just told the truth and If I didn’t have my head in the sand I would have seen this coming Oh and One more Mr Obama said in the last hour about Obamacare. It went from you can keep your healthcare and doctor to a big fat “IF”Now its if this or if that and here a note for all you young and up and coming workers the way it looking for Obamacare its will be no longer “IF” you choose to enroll in Obamacare or paid a fine its looking more like “you will buy Obamacare” you will pay higher cost as well and you will like it.So if you voted for Obama as Jeff Foxworthy would say “here’s your sign” and if you don’t get the joke look it up.

Layoffs at another Hospital

Layoffs at another Hospital. The South Central Kansas Medical Center in Arkansas City,Kansas laid off  Nine nurses and supervisors on Monday the reason, In a letter sent to all employees, administrators laid part of the blame for the cost cutting move on Obama care. The letter states “With the Affordable Care Act being rolled out and many outside forces demanding accountability for improved outcomes and better systems for healthcare, we have to make changes or we will not survive,”The CEO Steve Perkins said “It’s the hardest decision someone in my seat ever makes, there remains a great deal of confusion within the health care industry over how the Affordable Care Act will be implemented in Kansas.”It’s making anybody that’s sitting in a leadership role in a healthcare organization pucker up and think ‘Wow, this is just tough,'”obamacare-logo_full

As i ask once before in this earlier post (https://oldboyconservative.wordpress.com/2012/11/18/kaiser-permanente-blames-obamacare-for-lay-offs/) with all of us having to get heath Insurance should not Hospitals and Medical Centers be hiring more people

Now some of you may think 9 people is just a drop in a bucket ! but if enough drops fall it becomes a sea .

Kaiser Permanente Blames ObamaCare for Lay-offs

Kaiser Permanente has laid off 530 employees and puts the blame on ObamaCare. Kaiser officials said they have undertaken a series of layoffs to ensure they meet possible changes that could occur with the implementation of President Obama’s Affordable Care Act, which aims to make sure every American has health care coverage.Now one would think with everyone getting health care coverage medical centers and hospitals would be hiring more staff not laying them off.

With Kaiser Permanente laying off staff, will this mean longer waiting times for care and overall less care for family’s, longer waits for a test, x-rays and surgery’s you bet it will.Is this a trend we will see in other medical centers following suit I believe so

Kaiser Permanente

United Steel Workers Local 7600 President Roy Wiles “I’ve done this a long time. I don’t think it’s ever easy,””It’s very difficult for all the employees.”except for him (Roy Wiles)like he said he’s been doing this for a long time sitting at his desk calling the rank and files and saying sorry you don’t have a job anymore but thinking lucky me I get to keep mine! So you all have some good holidays looking for work.
