Hey Republicans, guess what? You people are simply delusional. You’re so lost in a world of spoon-fed right-wing propaganda that I am not even sure what kind of mental reality it is that most of you reside in.
Since the launch of the Affordable Care Act health care exchanges on October 1 (the government shutdown didn’t stop anything), the ACA website, Healthcare.gov, has been plagued with a few issues.
This has, of course, brought Republicans out in large numbers to say, “See, even the website is a disaster!”
O ye, of little brains.
Do you want to know why the website has been having issues? Here’s a hint: It damn sure isn’t because the American people are “overwhelmingly rejecting Obamacare.”
It’s because the servers are so overloaded with people trying to sign up for coverage or look at their options, the website simply could not handle the initial traffic.
Oh, and let me say this — whoever reads this needs to be sure to tell anyone wanting to sign up, make sure they’re going to www.healthcare.gov. There are a lot of other healthcare.___ domains which are propaganda sites funded by right-wing groups to deceive the American people.
I’ve literally laughed just about every time I’ve seen some conservative troll post on my Facebook pages, Right Off A Cliff or Forward Progressives, saying that the health care law is so bad that even the website won’t work correctly. Using the website issues as an example of how poorly the government runs things. Their reasoning is that, “if the government can’t even run the website, how can they possibly manage health care coverage?”
Well, Apple is one of the most (if not the most) successful technology companies in the world. Upon the release of their new operating system, iOS 7, their servers took a massive hit and users experienced near impossible waits to get the new software download. Does that mean Apple is incompetent and doesn’t know what they’re doing? Or does it simply mean that so many people were wanting their product that their servers experienced issues? Regardless of how you feel about Apple and their practices, their success is inarguable. Even the most successful companies and/or ideas can experience a few hiccups along the way.
The ignorance and stupidity of these people is utterly amazing. They’ll grasp at straws to find any way to levy some kind of attack on the Affordable Care Act, and most of what they say simply doesn’t make any sense.
And while the issues with the website I’m sure were frustrating to many, it just goes to show the overwhelming demand the American people have for affordable health care coverage.
So while Congressional Republicans will sit there and shutdown our government claiming they’re “listening to the American people who overwhelmingly oppose Obamacare,” the server overload at Healthcare.gov seems to tell a different story.
