Who is to blame for the sickness of Obamacare is discussed. The resignation of Kathleen Sebelius and the role of Obama in the new healthcare law are questioned.

Who Made Obamacare Sick?

Kathleen Sebelius, the person in charge of the Obamacare website, turned in her resignation after six months of problems with the Obamacare rollout. Let’s look at some facts and see if she is the major factor in problems with this healthcare law execution. President Obama continued to praise her even after the Sebelius resignation. Questions and opinions will always remain about what made Obamacare sick even after looking at these facts.

The Rod of Asclepius

In Greek Methodology, the Rod of Asclepius, also known as the asklepian, is a serpent-entwined rod wielded by the Greek god Aselepius, a deity associated with healing and medicine. The symbol has continued to be used in modern times, where it is associated with medicine and health care. The snake seems appropriate to use here as the slithering Obamacare law crawls along.

Sebelius Event Failure

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was at an education event in October 2013 to demonstrate how the government healthcare website was working great since the diabolical rollout failed for most everyone. The event turned out to be a really big fiasco. You may have seen this on the news and questioned her abilities with Obamacare.

Over a hundred people attended the event and there were 20 people on computers being shown how great the website works now. No body could get the site to work, and when a picture was taken of Sebelius in the background one of the computers said “Try again later.” Now that is a magnificent public relations campaign she presented showing failure.

Obamacare Is Like A Sick Teddy Bear

It seems almost every speech or promotion given to promote Obamacare became like a cartoon, promoting a sick Teddy Bear instead of something really good.

Obama Speech Fact Checking

President Obama made a speech in the White House Rose Garden in November 2013 talking about how he got a great letter from Jessica Sanford. This American citizen was so happy to finally have health insurance because of Obamacare. The President bragged how his new health care plan is working so well.

It turns out Jessica’s story is not so happy after all. She got a letter from Obamacare saying a mistake was made in her insurance quote, and her payments would be three times what she was told, so she is without healthcare. The President does not have his administration check out his quoted source and his positive illustration was as bad as the Sebelius education event.

Is Sebelius, Obama, Or Congress To Blame?

Obama is at the top of the executive branch of our government. That makes him the one who put Sebelius in charge of the Obamacare roll out. Since his administration does not do a very good job at checking out quotes from speeches, it appears the job performance of Sebelius went unchecked also.

Two new studies have really raised red flags about Obamacare and show both the Department of Health and Human Resources information systems and Obama’s questionable statements are a problem. HHR still has no way to quantify important data about consumers signing up through Obamacare exchanges.

If you combine no accountability from HHR and unreliable fact checking from the Obama Administration, it appears both Obama and Sebelius are to blame. Add blame to congress for passing this law without reading it and allowing Obama to make changes as he wishes. The blame seems to go around in circles out of control. Maybe somebody needs to read the law now and take positive action to fix it.

We had to pass the law to know what's in it; now that it's passed and somebody must have read it, it's been changed. . . and changed . . . and changed . . .

Interesting piece for someone who hadn't kept up with news about the new healthcare program.

You have presented another nice perspective of healthcare and really it is time someone took notice.
