Editor’s Note: The complete rejection of Obamacare by Americans goes hand-in-hand with their disgust with Congress, which now has an unprecedented 9% approval rating. Of course the Obama defenders will continue to downplay the strong resistance to Obamacare by distorting the truth.
Overwhelming majority of the country are against the healthcare takeover
December 3, 2013
Rasmussen reports that a whopping 81 percent of American voters wish to see the new health care law repealed or significantly changed, with exactly half saying the Affordable Care Act should be completely scrapped and started again from scratch.
The 50 percent figure is a seven point increase on numbers from late October. According to Rasmussen, a further 31 percent stated that the law should be reviewed and improved piece by piece, with only 16 percent saying that it should be left as it is now.
Voters were also asked about the mandate on businesses for providing health insurance that covers all government-approved contraceptives for women. The survey found that 51 percent oppose the mandate. which is currently being challenged in the U.S. Supreme Court.
The news comes as voters once again find out that the White House and HHS have told outright lies regarding the “fixing” of the obamacare website.
On Sunday, HHS began to brag that the website now has an error rating below 1% and a capacity allowing 50,000 simultaneous users. “We believe we have met the goal of having a system that will work smoothly for the vast majority of users,” a press release stated.
Just one day later, however, the government was forced to admit that this was not true and that the website cannot handle anywhere near that number of visitors – exposing yet ANOTHER lie.
As we reported yesterday, reports of faults and glitches are still pouring in.
In reality, the website is no where near fixed, and will require hundreds of hours more work on the backend before it is stable and can properly handle enrollments.
Indeed, the White House has also now admitted that software errors on the website have invisibly blocked some completed transactions, meaning that the few who believe they have managed to sign up could still be denied health benefits as their details will not be passed on to insurers.
The Washington Post notes that around a third of the 126,000 purported sign-ups in October and November have been blocked by diverse errors.
“We’re telling consumers that if they’re not sure that they’re enrolled, they should call the call center or their insurer directly,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said Monday.
In addition, cybersecurity expert David Kennedy told CNBC on Monday that security was “never” even built into the Obamacare website.
“It’s really hard to go back and fix the security around it because security wasn’t built into it,” said Kennedy, chief executive of TrustedSec. “We’re talking multiple months to over a year to at least address some of the critical-to-high exposures on the website itself.”
The government has only hit 15% of the two-month goal for sign ups to Obamacare. In order to make the healthcare program financially viable, there need to be 7 million enrolled by March 31st. So far the program has hit less than 5% of that number, even if you include sign ups via state exchanges as well as federal exchanges.
