Obama Addresses Health Care Fiasco
U.S. President Barack Obama urged Americans to “bypass” a health care website his administration spent hundreds of millions of dollars to build – acknowledging the government’s foray into the health care marketplace “hasn’t worked as smoothly as it was supposed to work.”
“Nobody’s madder than me about the fact that the website isn’t working as well as it should,” Obama said, “which means it’s going to get fixed.”
Of course Obama wasted little time in blaming “politics” for the uproar surrounding the crippled website – specifically pointing the finger at (wait for it) “Republicans in Congress.”
“They were willing to shut down the government and potentially harm the global economy to try to get it repealed,” Obama said of his socialized medicine law.
But anyway …
Obama maintained that while his health care website is broken, the socialized medicine it’s selling is a “good deal.”
“The product – the health insurance – is good,” Obama said. “The prices are good. It is a good deal.”
Um … that’s debatable.
