Obamacare is starting to look like a big failure thanks to his own administration glitches and overblown promises. The latest embarrassment to the Obama administration came on Friday when 39 house Democrats sided with the Republicans to vote for a proposed fix to canceled insurance policies under Obamacare.
The 'fix' is seen by many analysts as a temporary solution to a problem that is bound to end in disaster. The Obama administration will now allow insurers a one year extension to health care policies they had canceled for failing to meet the new healthcare law.
President Obama has long insisted that, “If you like your plan, you can keep it.” However, this assurance is now becoming ‘a lie’ with each passing day and many people now think that the president may have made promises he couldn't keep.
As things are turning out, Americans will have to wait longer (or possibly never) to enjoy ‘The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act’ that is meant to ensure that over 94% Americans have access to quality and affordable healthcare that is fully paid for. Already, many are pessimistic. "I think people have lost confidence in the ability of this working," said Kansas Insurance Commissioner Sandy Praeger.
Although it is all gloom and doom, Obama is the last person to give up hope of turning things around. At a news conference Thursday, Obama said, “I'm somebody who, if I fumbled the ball, I'm going to wait until I get the next play, and then I'm going to try to run as hard as I can and do right by the team."
Perhaps making sure that the shambled Obamacare website is up and running is Obama’s priority at the moment.
