Will Democrats rebel against Obama if teh website isn't fixed?


Let's just face it. We have an inept president with zero business experience who thought he could get a monumentally complicated website up and running and supposedly stay completely uninformed about it's progress up until just a few hours before its launch.

No mater how the President and the talking heads from his Congress and his administration want to spin it, you just can't get past the fact that Obamacare and the Healthcare.gov website is a disaster not seen in government in many years. The bottom line is, it will never work because there aren't enough healthy (and frankly sane) people who will sign up for Obamacare to ever make it solvent.

While Obama tries to say the it is because of "glitches" that so few people are signing up, the truth is only those that most need it and want healthcare for free will be clamoring for the President's system. Despite that reality, the website in and of itself is an unmitigated swindle of ginormous proportions that has cost American taxpayers almost $1 billion and is nowhere near functional and democrats are not at all happy about that.

They of course aren't concerned about the people that are trying to sign up for Obamacare, they just want the sinking ship to stay afloat until they can get reelected in the next Congressional races in 2014.

The Obamacare website is supposed to be fixed by December 1 and if that doesn't happen, some may revolt against Obama so they won't look bad and appearing to stand behind the president's fiasco (despite the fact they voted for it) and hurt the election chances.

Read more below about what they are prepared to do via Politico:

Some Capitol Hill Democrats are preparing to launch broadsides against President Barack Obama if the Affordable Care Act website isn’t fixed by the end of the month.

That will come in the form of more aggressive scrutiny in Republican-led oversight hearings, open advocacy for further delay in the enrollment deadline and individual coverage mandate, and more calls for a staff shake-up in the White House.

“The president and his team have repeatedly assured us that the system will be working by Dec. 1. That’s when I start looking at what we have to do in our oversight function to hold the administration accountable for making it work.” Rep. Bruce Braley, an Iowa Democrat who is running for an open Senate seat said Thursday, adding that he’s contemplating whether to ask the president to fire members of his staff. “I’m thinking about those options. But my biggest concern is fixing the system and making it work.”

Asked whether he was mad at the president, Braley hesitated for a few seconds amid the din of a Capitol hallway.

“Yes,” he said.

The building frustration — expressed in part Nov. 15 when 39 House Democrats voted for a GOP bill that would have let consumers keep expiring insurance plans — is driven by the fear that Obama’s failed rollout has suddenly left scores of Democrats vulnerable to defeat in the House and Senate.
