ObamaCare Clusterfuck: NH's Shea-Porter throws Obama under the bus on healthcare.gov rollout
nfavorable polling for Obamacare and actions taken by New Hampshire’s congressional Democrats last week to fix it underscore Democrats’ continued complicated relationship with the health care law heading into election season.
Republicans will do their best to make sure this doesn’t change anytime soon.
First District Rep. Carol Shea-Porter told President Obama in a face-to-face meeting last week that people need to resign over the flawed roll out of the health care website. And in late January, she sought clarification from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services on access to health care for children who qualify for Medicaid while their parents don’t – a glitch that federal officials say was fixed last week. Shea-Porter’s team was quick to highlight both as examples that she is fighting to help New Hampshire families.
And you know what?
Shea-Porter's right. People ought to resign. Or Obama ought to fire them.
But they won't, because Democrats. The absolute, tribal refusal of Democrats to hold themselves accountable for their own -- being charitable -- mistakes is one of the reasons I'll never vote for a Democrat in my own state of Maine again; the Baldacci administration reversed years of state policy on landfills to put the biggest one in New England on the Penobscot, and through a corrupt process, too. Do we hear word one about that from Democrats? No. Any reversal of policy? No. Is Baldacci still a respected, indeed, revered figure? Yes. Same deal with the national Democrats. And perhaps most frustrating at all, Democrats still think they're the good guys!
