Healthcare.gov, the federal Obamacare website, cost taxpayers more than $630 million, nearly seven times its original estimate of $93 million, new figures reveal

Yet it will likely take months to get it running properly following its disastrous rollout last week, when those hoping to enroll instead experienced an online nightmare, with websites crashing, refusing to load, and failing to offer comprehensive choices.

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz rambles incoherently about ObamaCare glitches

You know what to expect with Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. You’re going to get shrill talking points, and for the most part she needs to be on an outlet like MSNBC because they’re going to wind her up and let her go. She can blame Republicans for military death benefits not getting paid, even though they’re willing to pass a limited CR that pays them, and she won’t get challenged.

But she gets tripped up when host Thomas Roberts decides his credibility can’t survive his punting on a question about the rollout. That’s when she start sounding like she woke up three seconds ago and she can’t do anything but babble incoherently. Enjoy:

OBAMACARE – “Obama Sold Voters Bill of Goods on Health Care”.

“As a candidate for president, Barack Obama sold his signature universal health care plan with the promise that it would “cut the cost of a typical family’s premium by up to $2,500 a year.”

“Now that the Affordable Care Act exchanges are open for business, voters are finding that the biggest problem with Obamacare is not that some websites crashed last week but that the Obama promise of big savings for the average family was too good to be true.”

Obama Draws Lowest Approval Ratings Since 2011

President Barack Obama’s job-approval rating has fallen to its lowest level since 2011, reflecting the public’s disapproval of his clashes with Congress on spending and a growing opposition to Obamacare, two new polls have found.

According to the Bloomberg National Poll of 1,000 adults conducted Sept. 20-23, the president has a 45 percent job-approval rating, while a Gallup survey of 11,259 adults taken Sept. 1-22 gives him 44 percent. 

The Gallup survey showed that the president is rapidly losing support within his own party.
