Most transparent administration in history denies CBS News access to HealthCare.gov ‘fix’ locations

So, you want to know what the government is doing to “fix” the unmitigated disaster that is HealthCare.gov? Sorry. That’s just not something that can be shared with the unwashed masses.

Even CBS’s Sharyl Attkisson, a representative of a major mainstream news organization, can’t have a peek at the actual “fix sites” where all the king’s men are furiously trying to reassemble Humpty Dumpty. Strictly confidential. No outsiders allowed in the magical rainbow factory that’s supposed to give us all health insurance.

Naturally, she’s a little peeved, but she’s extra-peeved that these same sites are being shown to hand-picked groups of tech executives, while the public is locked out.

We can at least think of a rational reason why White House staffers would deny reporters access to potentially scandalous information about Benghazi or Fast and Furious, but why the heck would the “most transparent administration ever” bother to keep reporters away from a roomful of computer geeks trying to fix a public website?

It’s almost impossible that anything in these locations could put more egg on Barack Obama’s face than what’s already there — unless the facilities are manned by leprechauns chained to their desks. Come to think of it, that might explain it.
