    "Other than that it's amazing, they just had a bad website and every is mad, it's going to give a lot of people healthcare"

    Howard and Robin agreed, it's just bad luck that the website isn't working. They'll figure it out eventually and save the world.

    Even as horrible as the government is at all things you have to be shocked at how badly they fucked this up.

    What?!

    Sarah said they just have to get this website thing figured out and then it's going to be amazing.

    She is a huge Obama supporter so she knows the ins and outs we don't understand.

    It's just bad luck the website people screwed this up

    I've been pretty deeply involved in a few business websites going up. The FIRST thing you do is put together the whole payment processor system. Do you use AMEX? Do you take Paypal? It is the first talk you have. That guy testified yesterday that the payment systems weren't ready. Bad, very bad.

    Michelle Obama’s Princeton classmate is executive at company that built Obamacare website


    First Lady Michelle Obama’s Princeton classmate is a top executive at the company that earned the contract to build the failed Obamacare website.

    Toni Townes-Whitley, Princeton class of ’85, is senior vice president at CGI Federal, which earned the no-bid contract to build the $678 million Obamacare enrollment website at Healthcare.gov. CGI Federal is the U.S. arm of a Canadian company.

    Townes-Whitley and her Princeton classmate Michelle Obama are both members of the Association of Black Princeton Alumni.

    IMO the haters and apologists are in the same league :D

    I ignore all female comedians because none are funny, but she was probably joking.


    They should have got Jason to make the site, he does such a great job on Howard's :rolleye:

    Forcing people to pay for insurance they don't need.

    Forcing people who can't afford insurance to buy insurance.

    Forcing millions of people to lose the plan that they've had for years.

    That's "giving" people healthcare?

    Pelosi didn't need to read the bill to get her party to pass it. Hollywood "liberals" don't need to know what's in the bill to defend it. :facepalm:

    I'm glad I'm in canada, no fucking around. Every time I've needed to visit the emergency I walked right in and was treated promptly.

    Having our son was pleasent with free midwife services through the hospital. The midwife did all the check ups after he was born at our home 45 min from the hospital.

    I know we pay for it in a round a bout way but jesus christ I have a fucking anxiety attack thinking of your health care system.

    We used to buy insurance when visiting the states but I let my passport lapse so I won't be back. Mind you the nearest crossing is Buffalo...

    Putting her views on this aside I used to think she was too stupid for Jimmy Kimmel. I was never able to totally tell how much of ditzy act was put on but I always got the idea Jimmy was a notch up in the smart department.

    She had moments where she seemed somewhat intelligent today, but overall she just came off as a pothead It was that stupid typical Obama loving hollywood liberal comment that sealed it for me.

    Gotta love these people. Hide behind lawyers and accountants who tell them how to save as much money as possible yet they say Obama has a great system in place and the only reason his approval rating dropped is because someone else just screwed up a website.

    while Obama has been going around shaking down small businesses for 20-30-$40,000, he spends $1Billion for a shit hole website that isn't even close to working yet.
    It's time to impeach this disaster ass, and get back on track.

    No one is turned away in the states.
    That is a myth.
    We just don't have to wait 7 months for a simple surgery.
    We all pay in a round about way too.
    It's called taxes and high premiums.
    We all pay for the poor and lazy here as well.
    Its half a dozen one and six of the other.

    I run small business in Michigan, just outside Detroit. Gramholm has buttfucked me the past 6 years and now I'm dealing with healthcare shit that is further taxing me both literally and figuratively.

    I can't even stomach looking at my books right now compared to when my dad ran the company in the mid-2000's

    I'm fucked.

    edit: anyone want to buy a decent golf equipment/printing company that makes close to 2 mil a year and move it to a non taxed to death state in the south? I'm looking to sell/move.

    Sorry for your troubles. I hope you can steer through the rocks until things get better.

    I'm not being cute here. I know it is a rough subject for you. But why can't you just move it south?
