CBS' Jan Crawford: Obama Rollout "Nothing Short of Disastrous"

From Tami. Jan Crawford is one of the few reporters in the media who calls things as they are, without prejudice or favor.

This is a tough report. Tough, but honest. Look below the fold for it.

The White House has been warned for months that the system was nowhere near ready.

But they don't listen to facts. They make decisions based upon their partisan hopes and ideological dreams. The thing will work, because it must work, because the Cause of the Left is noble and good, and because the left's strange gods will come in at night, like socialist elves, to cobble the Administration's code together.

Major insurers, state health-care officials and Democratic allies repeatedly warned the Obama administration in recent months that the new federal health-insurance exchange had significant problems, according to people familiar with the conversations.

...

Two allies of the administration, both of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the controversy surrounding the rollout, said they approached White House officials this year to raise concerns that the federal exchange was not ready to launch. In both cases, Obama officials assured them there was no cause for alarm.

Robert Laszewski, a health-care consultant with clients in the insurance industry, said insurers were complaining loudly that the site, www.healthcare.gov, was not working smoothly during frequent teleconferences with officials at the Department of Health and Human Services before the exchange’s launch and afterward. “People were pulling out their hair,” he said.

The left likes to flatter itself as thinking in terms of reason, facts, expertise, openness to doubt, and scorn of dogma and magical thinking.

Is this anywhere close to true?

When experts told the Obama Administration it was a fact the website was not ready, did they take seriously this advisement?

Nope! They simply said there was no cause for alarm; the strange gods of the left would just sort everything out.

Oddly enough, they didn't.


Meanwhile, Sheila Jackson Lee knows how to end this shutdown.

That's right, you guessed it -- by the declaration of martial law.
