Every attempt makes me less excited and even more disillusioned with our Federal Government.
I have to send out a question to my faithful Survive55 followers and hopefully this reaches the general population of United States:
Isn't there an honest, solid businessman who has been CEO of a Fortune 500 company that has been creating sustainable profits for their company that wants to be President of the greatest country on earth?
This website and the entire program it represents "REALLY SUCKS."
There is no way an organization as large as, as experienced as and as flush with resources as the United States Government could possibly be this inept, this incompetent, this insipid, this unskilled, this amateurish, this bumbling, this bungling, this untalented, this inproficient or this bush-league without really trying.
And how could they possibly build a program like the PPACA and the HealthCare Marketplace and it's red-headed stepson the HealthCare.gov website that is so dysfunctional, so flawed, so debilitated, so defective, so dysfunctional, so feckless, so screwed up and so broken?
What a great plan.
What a miserable "FAIL."
The first thing I notice is the "Vaguely Hispanic-looking" spokeswoman on the front page is missing.
An inspection of the website’s source code revealed the image file’s name: “Adriana.”
Had "Adriana" been abducted?
Did she lose her place?
Did she die trying to get health insurance coverage?
This infamous and anonymous woman who graced the front page is now gone, replaced by a graphic telling Americans how else they can find coverage.
I found out through my really deep sources that "Adriana" wasn't abducted, she didn't lose her place nor did she die waiting for health insurance coverage from HealthCare.gov.
Hell, she wasn't even told she was going to be the face of the website to begin with.
I heard she was getting hate mail and death threats because of her connection to the website.
Just when you think life sucks, remember it could be worse.
You could be "Adriana."
The Obama administration should stop worrying about what is gracing the front page of their disastrous website and more time fixing the technical mess it has become.
They can keep changing the photos, but what they cannot change is the fact that the site is nothing short of a major "FAIL."
I get through the profile section again and am ready to begin researching my healthcare choices when.............................
you guessed it...............
"SORRY, OUR SYSTEM IS DOWN"
Has anyone gotten through?
As I stated in earlier blogs, there are rumors (AND I REPEAT RUMORS) from different sources that 50,000 or 100,000 people have been successful at navigating this marketplace but still this is an embarrassingly small number and there are no confirmed "kills" as they say.
Bad, bad press for an administration that has decided canceling families health plans (after it promised not to) and raising the costs of health insurance is not as important as enrolling people into Obama Care-approved plans.
To help understand just how small these numbers are, I found a list compiled by President Obama's friends at the National Republican Congressional Committee (a completely unbiased and impartial government agency - NOT!) with 10 things that more people have done than have signed up for ObamaCare on HealthCare.gov.
"More People Have Done These 10 Things Than Have Signed Up For ObamaCare"
According to the 2010 census, America’s population of centenarians – those who are 100 years old or older – was 53,364, a 66% jump from 1980.
Not all of us may have the honor of knowing someone who was born before 1913, but believe it or not, there are more people living in the United States who are at least 100 years old than people who have enrolled in ObamaCare through HealthCare.gov.
This may be hard to believe, but more than 100,000 people have signed up to help colonize Mars.
A group called the Mars One project hopes to lead the colonization of the Red Planet starting in 2022, and is encouraging sign ups for a list of people who want to take the one-way trip.
As far-out as that sounds, more people have signed up for that trip than have signed up for HealthCare.gov.
Wyoming’s capital and most populous city, Cheyenne, has 61,537 residents.
More people call Cheyenne home than have signed up for ObamaCare through HealthCare.gov.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are one of the worst-performing teams in the NFL this year, but 59,553 fans still pack their stadium on average every game this season.
That’s probably more than ten thousand people than have signed up for ObamaCare on HealthCare.gov.
According to the US Highway Patrol, 112,000 people will receive a speeding ticket at some point today.
That’s more than double the number of people who have used HealthCare.gov to sign up for ObamaCare.
Every year, the Guinness Book of World Records receives an average of 50,000 applications for new broken records.
That means that just a few more people have submitted records for largest ocarina ensemble, pillow fights, and smallest living dog (among other things) than have signed up for ObamaCare on the federal exchange.
This one isn’t even close.
Starbucks sells on average more than 10 million cups of coffee per day.
That’s enough for each HealthCare.gov enrollee to have 200 cups of coffee per day!
An unacceptably high number of 449,618 people remain unemployed in Chicago, thanks to Obama’s economy.
This is almost ten times as many people as have signed up for ObamaCare on HealthCare.gov.
Despite its gigantic size, most of the country of Greenland is blanketed by ice, and its population is just 56,840.
That’s still more people than have enrolled through HealthCare.gov.
We’ve saved the most shocking for last.
While less than 50,000 have successfully signed up for ObamaCare through HealthCare.gov, more than 34 million Americans are expected to have their health plans cancelled thanks to ObamaCare.
Not only is this absolutely unacceptable, but the President and his Democrats repeatedly promised the American people that this would not happen.
I will succeed or I will die trying.
I will find out what healthcare is going to cost me even if it kills me.
Well try again in a couple of days.
Thanks for joining me..........................................................................
