Barack Obama is frustrated over website issues, so an address to the nation from the Rose Garden of the White House will be given by Obama on the messy rollout of Obamacare. He will be flanked by supporters of the so-called, Affordable Care Act and will most likely declare that the problems will be solved quickly. But for now, the Obamacare website, loaded with glitches, has been a train wreck. At best, reports say that about 470,000 people have applied for health care insurance through the website, while the actual number of those who successfully enrolled in a program is somewhere between 20,000 and 40,000. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is refusing to appear before the House Energy and Commerce Committee to answer questions on the rollout′s failures. Her excuse is that she has a prior commitment to attend a gala ball at the Kennedy Library in Boston. What about her commitment to the American people? No officials from the Obama administration will voluntarily appear before Congress to explain the failure of Obamacare.

After three years and some $690 Million dollars spent, Healthcare.gov is a qualified disaster! One of the primary companies involved in building the website, CGI, is a Canadian firm that was fired by Canada when they botched the system for putting citizen′s medical records in a network database. Some reports have stated that there was no dry-run test of the Obamacare website until just one week before the rollout on October 1st. Other reports indicate that many experts in government, as well as those in the health insurance industry, knew months ago that the website was far from ready. So, the BIG questions are, as always, who in the Obama administration knew that the website was not ready, when did they know it and why has it cost so much money to create?

If Monty Python′s Flying Circus was still around, they could easily do a skit where in Kathleen Sebelius explains that she cannot appear before Congress to answer their questions because she is too busy playing the grand piano at the Kennedy Library in Boston. Or perhaps, a skit where a group of swells at a Georgetown cocktail party compare Barack Obama to a stream of bat′s piss. ″Oh, what I meant to say is that King Obama is like a shaft of golden light, penetrating the darkness.″ But, unfortunately, all we have these days for comic relief are the worn-out has-beens of Saturday Night Live, whom could not even come up with a fresh, new episode this weekend.

Does it really matter what will be said today by Barack Obama on the messy rollout of Obamacare? To hear him drone on and on from the White House Rose Garden as Obama tells us how frustrated he is over website issues? No, we will learn nothing at all. Nor will we learn anything new from the hearings scheduled by the House Energy and Commerce Committee about the train wreck which is Obamacare. Especially since no one from the Obama administration, including HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, will testify under oath.
