As the days drag on without the government-run healthcare website working, it has become obvious to all that the problems are much more than just "a glitch." President Obama has finally been forced to admit that "...there's no excuse for the problems," which he followed with, "Nobody's madder than me...."
Once again Obama seeks to portray himself as a detached observer, rather than the commanding officer. Where does the buck stop, if not with the man at the top? Since when is'nt the captain responsible for his ship?
The hundreds of millions of dollars spent on the site have apparently been wasted. But that's minor. We have looked into the future of government-run health care and it's not pretty. If the government doesn't have the competence to set up a website, how in the world can it be trusted to administer health care for the entire nation?
Then there's the inevitable leak of personal income and health history data of those who sign up (if they ever can), as all it takes is one rogue (or inept) healthcare bureaucrat to put it out into cyberspace.
We have reason to be concerned.
