ObamaCare Clusterfuck: 50% of Florida's known ObamaCare sign-ups are former Obama campaign operatives
To be fair, there are only two. But still! Miami Herald/KHN:
Obamacare Enrollees Become Urban Legend
Nearly two weeks after the federal government launched the online Health Insurance Marketplace at healthcare.gov, individuals who have successfully used the choked-up website to enroll for a subsidized health insurance plan have reached a status akin to urban legend: Everyone has heard of them, but very few people have actually met one.
The Miami Herald searched high and low for individuals who completed enrollment for a subsidized health plan through the marketplace, also called an exchange, launched by the federal government on Oct. 1 in 36 states, including Florida.
The Herald solicited readers for stories of enrollees online and in the newspaper, and received a fair number of responses reflecting various degrees of success with healthcare.gov, which has been plagued by technical problems that federal officials attribute to an overwhelming number of people trying to access the website at once. ....
Florida media and nonprofit groups have reported at least two successes in detail. Florida CHAIN, a statewide consumer health advocacy group, has highlighted the story of Vincent Mutia, a 24-year-old political science student at the University of Central Florida.
Now, when I read "political science," a little bell of paranoia and cyncism went Ding! So I looked up Vincent Mutia's Linked-In profile. Here is it is:
Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha! I don't know what I find most annoying about this:
1.) That neither the Miami Herald nor KHN bothered to check who Vincent Mutia was;
2.) The arrogance and cynicism that permeates the Obama campain organization, whose operatives don't even bother to do their shameless PR work at arm's length, and also
3.) Assume that the rest of us are so stupid that we won't bother to check what they tell us.
I mean, seriously. Couldn't these clowns plant a simple heartwarming human interest story, hopefully with kittens? Do I have to have all the ideas around here? Can't anybody here play this game?
Two down, 7 million to go!
UPDATE As I keep saying, the ObamaCare rollout is a political campaign. However, even I wasn't cynical enough to imagine it would be a poorly organized, badly run campaign. And wasn't Moms Rising supposed to handle those kittens?
