The More We Learn, the Stupider Obozo Looks

This is not exactly the legacy a smart and competent executive wants to leave.  Unless this was The Plan from the get-go, of course.

A document given to the contractor who replaced CGI in December shows how truly desperate is the position of the government.

So what does the document say?

“There is limited time to build this functionality and failure to deliver…by mid-March 2014 will result in financial harm to the government,....

“If this functionality is not complete by mid-March 2014, the government could make erroneous payments to providers and insurers,” it continues. “Additionally, without a Financial Management platform that accounts for enrollments and associated program costs that integrates with the existing CMS Accounting platform, the entire healthcare reform program is jeopardized.”

Oh.  Well.  That's just wonderful.

Many of those who have signed up for ObamaCare are eligible for federal subsidies, which the government pays directly to the insurers. The document says that failure to complete the project by mid-March could result in “inaccurate issuance of payments to health plans which could seriously put them at financial risk; potentially leading to their default and disrupting continued services and coverage to consumers.”  --quoting The Hill

(The semi-literacy of the document's author confirms that it's a FedGov scribble.)

There's even more!!

...the back-end problems extend beyond federal subsidy payments. According to the document, the system is vulnerable to “inaccurate forecasting” of the risk mitigation programs in place to pay insurers who enroll a higher-than-expected number of sick patients with expensive bills, “potentially putting the entire health insurance industry at risk.

There are a lot of insightful folks (Limbaugh among them) who are convinced that ObozoCare was designed to make private insurers fail.  Given what we see above, there's still no reason to doubt that theory.

The alternative is that Obozo and his HHS Secretary are two of the dumbest examples of homo sapiens ever to have had office in the US.

Which do you prefer?

I like the idea of a single payer:)

Of all the adjectives attributed to Limbaugh, this has to be one of the most hilarious.

"who are convinced that ObozoCare was designed to make private insurers fail. Given what we see above, there's still no reason to doubt that theory."

If Obama is so dumb, and government in general is so incompetent, why would you believe that they could conceive and carry out such a covert plan intended to bring about the failure of the private insurance industry?
