Feds May Not Have ObamaCare Operational on Time

The Washington Post reports:

By the end of this week, states must decide whether they will build a health-insurance exchange or leave the task to the federal government. The question is, with as many as 17 states expected to leave it to the feds, can the Obama administration handle the workload.

“These are systems that typically take two or three years to build,” says Kevin Walsh, managing director of insurance exchange services at Xerox. “The last time I looked at the calendar, that’s not what we’re working with.”…

The Obama administration has known for awhile that there’s a decent chance it could end up doing a lot of this. Now though, they’re finding out how big their workload will actually become.

    Well no shit! The feds have never had anything operational on time except an IRS audit.

    Why would they have had the national health plan ready to implement?
    Maybe they were expecting the nation to be insolvent by now.

    The governor of Alabama has announced that he will NOT set up a state health care exchange. Your move DC because more will do this.

    The singular hallmark of the Obama administration has been absolute incompetency in running anything. They have proven to be good at winning elections and creating new rules in the face of constitutionality, but actually doing anything? Not likely, unless the people to get the job done were already in place when 0 took the reins.

    Obamacare will never be operational in any positive way. The more operational it becomes – the worse it will function.

    Just like everything with government, and this “administration” in particular, they couldn’t pour piss out of a boot with the instructions on the heel. Does Amtrak run on time? Doubtful.

    Not to worry folks Teh Bum won’t be embarrassed by the total collapse of the (Not So) Affordable Care Act. His minions will create a scandal for the government bureaucrat who was in charge of the ObamaCare cluster shtup. They’ll wait till the poor disposable fool has been scheduled to testify before Congress before springing the surprise. I mean its worked so great on Petraus, why not just add it to the arsenal of dirty tricks.
