Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius directed her Twitter followers to a post on the HHS blog which offers the stories of three women as if they’re Obamacare “success stories”:

However, anybody who reads that carefully will discover that none of the women have enrolled in Obamacare.

In fairness, all three of those people might be trying to enroll but are instead stuck seemingly forever in a “waiting room.”

    What a Mess!! How are these people in control of our country!!

      How is Lady Gaga popular? We have raised a bunch of zombies in our indifference over the years out of convenience. Now we have forgotten who we are and that is how you subjugate a people.

      It started in the 60s when the smelly vermin occupied college administration buildings. They should have been jailed, but were placated for their demands for “tolerance and diversity.” They soon became “The Man” and began running the education system and have trained several generations to comply with authority and trust Democrats.

      The other part was the takeover of the entertainment industry from the old studio system and “normalize” every Amerikkka hating scumbag idea into mainstream movies and television. Heroes and virtue are to be scoffed at and any hint of patriotism has to be uncovered for the “racist, bigoted, “fill in the rest of the blanks”….

        And on the state level. They came from mostly liberal states. To run for PTA. Then the school boards. Create Unions. And eventually, City and County Council slots. With the goal being a run for Mayor(s).

        With that time and achievement. Like minded camps, cities, towns and enclaves accrued and generated money to perpetuate the species. With increasing taxes and grants. Used to create slush funds, war chests and off shore accounts. To launch Congressional campaigns.

      • SupplyGuy

        No, it didn’t start in the 60’s. This fight has been going on forever. They elected Wilson, a racist king-wannabe, 100 years ago, followed by FDR, a closet communist and antisemite in the 30’s.
        The fact is is that people want someone to take care of them. You can even see this all the way back 4000 years ago when the Israelites demanded a king.
        This mess shouldn’t be a shock to anyone who has studied history. This will be an eternal struggle as long as there are human beings on this earth.

          ETERNAL struggle….. that is the deal.

        • rangerider

          Do not forget Teddy since he was the first progressive. Teddy refused to run for re-election, but did not like the politics of the Republican, so he started his own Bull Moose Party and gave the election to Wilson :-)

      • megapotamus

        You got that right. Even Reagan played too much footsie with the hippy squatters. They should have been gassed, dragged out and gone to County for a few months.

  • Richard Rivette

    Kathleen Sibelius is an airhead. Time to resign you fraud. The computer system for Obamacare has already been hacked, is unsafe, unnavigable, doesn’t process forms properly, has incorrect pricing and subsiides, scares people, lists numerous penalties, authorizes seizure of your bank accounts & home, and fails to address the most basic need in the first place which was make health insurance affordable so those who WERE uninsured can afford it, while the rest of us, now losing our policies and seeing dramatic rate increases, kept their insurance at their negotiated rates without impact. This entire dinosaur is a scam and must be repealed entirely. Further, we need to remind this illegal administration that executive orders pertain only to the procedures and demeanor of the executive branch staff and are not laws to be enforced against we the people.

    • Iwanta Cigar

      Resigning will not help. With a Democrat in the White-house there is a steady stream of airheads to fill her shoes. There is only one way and the American people are too stupid to do it. They all have to be voted out. But, as long as the government is giving away stuff, there will be a large number of low information voters (stupid) that will vote for a democrat for the WRONG reasons.
      Vote them out and keep them out. That is the only way. Get a majority and then change these stupid immigration and welfare rules and get the government back.

    • trixiewoobeans

      Yes she’s an airhead, this Admin. is full of them. All’s you have to do is flatter them, give them a “position,” occasionally soothe, and they’ll gratefully do whatever they’re told. They are simply tools, to be used and discarded when no longer useful.

      They know they are operating outside the law. The boss man went to law school, studied Constitutional law precisely so he could use every crack and weakness he could find and every misinterpretation possible to subvert the Constitution for the purpose of FUNDAMENTALLY TRANFORMING THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. . . (his own words, 8/28/08)

  • OLLPOH ~ OurLifeLiberty

    Its the implementation of 0’bama’s Destructional Dictatorship that is the most important thing that we are all missing here…Destroy All of U.S. and its private businesses and the Constitution…and he’s the first One to do it.

  • tops116 ✓Quipper

    Well, there’s an easy way for Sebelius to guarantee at least one enrollment, but that would require forfeiting her exemption.

  • BlahBlah

    If they want to enroll people in Odumbocare, they should forego picturing Sebelius. She’s the reason people haven’t run to sign up. Are these 3 people real or did she dig them up?

    I have a question:

    How does one achieve “success” with an adversarial offshoot of Government that does everything in its power to assure that “success” is never achieved?

    Kind of makes you go “Hhhhhhhhmmmmmmmmmmm.”

    Welcome to Obamerica.

    “The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure.” – Senator Barrack Obama

    House republicans passed 26 appropriations bills to keep various parts of the govt running.
    Harry Reid wont even bring the bills up for a vote.

    This after Obama talks about how important these things are. “News reporters” should be asking a few questions but I guess they are too busy with their heads up Obama’s rear.

    C. S. Lewis quotes:

    Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victim may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

    “But we’re not going to accomplish those things if one party to this conversation says that the only way that they come to the table is if they get 100 percent of what they want and if they don’t, they threaten to burn down the house.” – Barrack Obama Sept 30, 2013
    Maybe I am wrong but aren’t Obama and the Senate demanding 100% of what they want and since they didn’t get it we have the govt shutdown now?

    Of the 17 shutdowns in America’s history, Democrats controlled the House during 15 and had charge of both chambers during eight.
    Yet because of this shutdown which republicans are getting blamed for even though Obama and the Dems wont negotiate, the left is calling them terrorists.

    Any one of them resigning will not help. With a Democrat in the White-house there is a steady stream of airheads to fill her/his shoes.

  • TocksNedlog

    They’re ‘successfully’ mulling it over.

  • rivers

    Chad and Julia, you trust them with your healthCARE when they can’t even get you healthINSURANCE? What’s that you like to say, “it’s been the law of the land for three years.” Seems like plenty long enough to cobble up some working websites. You know this would not be tolerated in the private sector. Any company this incompetent would go under in a heartbeat.

    • ObamaFail

      The difference is that the Private Sector has standards. The Obama admin obviously doesn’t.

      • Chrissy the Hyphenated

        The Ø Standards exist. They just don’t get us anywhere good.

  • ObamaFail

    What a joke. The Obama admin is spiking the football over what a success Obamacare is, but the websites are a mess, and everyone they’ve paraded around as “successful enrollments” have been exposed as people who haven’t really even enrolled yet.

  • fcalsnoe

    It’s not about healthcare it’s about a socialist agenda and taking over capitalism as we know it. Stupid Dems who don’t see this are heading off the cliff.

  • Rulz

    I don’t want that old white woman Sebilius deciding my health care

  • Jill

    So that’s the reason for the website failures. All those millions (well, 3 actually) of people flocking to partake of “Affordable Care” have simply overwhelmed the system.

  • TXKracker

    Just like Obama phones, next thing you know if you signed up… It’s free, just in time for they’s mid-terms. Next time you see an Obama voter order fries with that meal.

  • Sakemoto

    Apparently, Obamacare has a “Gulag” just like twitter. They send you there to wait and wait and wait. And then they come to assess you a “fine” if you don’t buy the insurance.

  • HARP2

    The numbers will spike dramatically once SEIU gets to recount them.

  • HARP2

    I thought Biden said this was a big F**KING deal ?

    • Chrissy the Hyphenated

      Yep. And it is. It’s going to help fundamentally transform America from the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave to just another nation where the upper class is a tiny minority, the middle class is poor, and the poor are out of luck.

    • BlackBettysBlog

    Keep in mind the background of Sebelius. She is the member of an influential political family in Kansas. She was a governor of that state. One of her biggest donors of her political ambitions was George Tiller – more widely known as Tiller the Baby Killer.

      Interesting, she look like another sociopath…………..LOCK UP THE CHILDREN

      • Adam Weisshaupt

        All politicians are sociopaths. Seriously, who but a Sociopath would actually want the job. Who but sociopaths actually want to interfere with the lives of others at gunpoint? Yes, that includes most of the left was well. Government is just a name for things we do together, some of us at gunpoint.

    This pretty much sums up ObamaCare’s maiden voyage right now.

  • cubanbob

    Even if you are a supporter of the ACA this mess of a rollout proves the republicans are right in delaying the ACA if for no other reason than to give time to the IT techs to solve the implementation issues.

  • WilliamK

    The should have picked a small state like Delaware or Rhode Island to try all this on. Take a year or so to work out the technical bugs and see what prices actually look like before going Nation wide.

    • BlackBettysBlog

      That would require thinking.

    • BlackBettysBlog

      From Jim Geraghty at NRO, commenting on a USA editorial:

      (USA Today) Park said the administration expected 50,000 to 60,000 simultaneous users. It got 250,000. Compare that with the similarly rocky debut seven years ago of exchanges to obtain Medicare drug coverage. The Bush administration projected 20,000 simultaneous users and built capacity for 150,000.

      (JG comment) That’s the difference between competence and incompetence.

  • BlackBettysBlog

    Even if they were shopping and actually trying to enroll, anecdotes are not data, except in the world of liberal politics.


    When the ultimate goal is single payer, why spend money on software? The better it works, the longer it will take to collapse the system.

  • obamaiscarter

    You know the enrollments are practically zero when a Cabinet-level official can recite specific names and can only point to three people as “success stories”. How desperate are you when you pretend each individual enrollment is some sort of victory?

  • Drewdxbarry

    I think it interesting that barry has upset the IT folks because of his internet meddling, and Anonymous is bummed at him, and he believes theses are normal start up glitches. Will barry negotiate with them?

  • megapotamus

    If the websites were not in collapse, they would have to be collapsed by Team O Damage Control Div. When they work they are delivering bad news. What is this crap about looking elsewhere for a better deal? There isn’t going to BE an elsewhere when this thing is running full out. Elsewhere and Obamacare just… don’t get along. I have yet to see one bonafide instance of someone booking an Obamacare plan. Not one. Where is it? They say there is a first time for everything. Everything but THIS!
