    No, looks more like the House Republicans figuring out the budget.

    Even super-lib Nick sees Obama(non)care for what it is: A disaster.

    Just like George W’s sell-out to big Pharma? What’s it part D? something like that.

    Over 634 MILLION for the web site which was supposed to cost “only” one million……Where’s the outrage?

    I actually disagree, Soupi, and folks get on my case about bringing up the racist slant.
    So many liberal journalists and writers have been finding out info on the roll out of this Oct 1 sign up web site. The lack of beta testing, the foolish inclusion of many designers as if to give everyone a piece of the credit, and the failure to consider the number of people who might investigate the site showed enormous lack of planning and vision.
    There is no doubt that this website can be fixed, perhaps even before the deadline, but Mr. Obama has opened himself and his team to much criticism by failing to test the product before releasing it live. The use of monkeys to show such foolishness isn’t racist, though with all of the taints of racism surrounding things involving the way conservatives view this President, your impression has a sad validity. I just don’t think it’s the case here.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    Must have used Halliburton for the job.

    Of course, your app would probably be bought pennies on the dollar from some starving computer tech by a larger corporate entity who would then sell it to the government at highly inflated beyond reason prices, giving them obscene profits which they would use to buy a Republican Congressman who would then lower their taxes or provide another overshore tax exclusion which they would then in turn use to buy ads proclaiming how the government doesn’t work and everything should just be turned over to “free” enterprise. Oh and while they were at it, repeal the 13th Amendment and use the principles of eminent domain to “enlist” your a$$ in a war of choice because somebody has some oil reserves. Yep, where’s the outrage?

    No let’s be more accurate and compare them to Boehner, Cruz and company. After all, where’s the conservative outrage over cost us some $24 BILLION for the government shut down in wages lost and activity stalled. Oh and don’t forget, we might get to do it all over again in a few months. There’s that adult attitude we have come to expect from the Republiclans.

    Who likes the idea of Lowest Bidder? What sounds “fiscally responsible” is actually a fool’s errand.

    the company that was rewarded to create the healthcare.gov website are from canada, not silicon valley or seattle or any other high tech areas of america.

    Let’s discuss the knee-jerk gleeful reactions to the glitches, too, shall we?
    .
    More costly, less effective. It’s a continuing Republican insane mantra of privatization, and “running government like a business.”
    .
    Outsourcing government has never been about cost savings or efficiency. Republicans are all excited about juicy, big fat contracts they can parcel out to political donors.
    .
    This outsourced clusterf**k that is the national Obamacare portal is a case in point.
    .
    Of course, that doesn’t stop the wingnuts from lumping the merits of the ACA with the rollout – the irony is that the policy of outsourcing the task to a private company was a failure.

    After reading the comments, I wonder how many have designed Web pages in the past? I will let you ponder the meaning of the question….

    “No negotiating” was the bill written and passed by Republicans to ban negotiation for drug prices in Medicare, about tripling the cost of drugs. Their “negotiation” on budget bills had nothing to do with the budget, or debt ceiling, and was pure obstructionism. Obama said he wouldn’t negotiate and accept what would destroy the nation: that’s leadership, not like lying to everyone to start two wars when given WAY to much authority in a bill only a couple paragraphs long, the “War powers act”.

    Simpleminded is the term that comes to mind with this cartoon. Anderson really knows how to appeal to his Republican audience.
