The pushback date is allegedly due to a cry from the masses—that darn Internet machine!
This sounds innocent, but make no mistake, this is an embarrassing delay to the Obama administration’s cornerstone health care promise. Really now, is registering online that hard of a task?
That seems to be the issue, according to Nevada Democratic Sen. Harry Reid.
“There is no delay,” Reid said. “We have hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up who didn’t get through. There are some people who are not like my grandchildren who can handle everything so easily on the Internet, and these people need a little extra time.”
All right, let’s take potshots at the old folks, then. But please, let’s blame them for something other than how “smelly” they are, as Reid did. The irony is Reid himself is no youngster. If the elderly are inept to sign up via the Internet, perhaps a different path should have been taken, much less planned for.
Either way, the people of this country should be accounted for, regardless of their capability to use the Internet. Forget blaming Reid, though, this is not his fault. This is the fault of an entire party, especially when the promised healthcare requires you to use certain birth controls over others, while charging your company extra if it is a religious corporation.
“It’s a big issue,” Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul said in an interview on Fox News. “…To me it’s a fundamental issue on the Bill of Rights and the First Amendment that you do get to exercise your religion. You should not pay a penalty for exercising your own religion.”
We all have to take responsibility of our country. Blaming it on others will do us no good. What action will we take to fix this? Much more, what should the country take away from this delay? Is there a valid excuse for the pushback date on Obamacare? Should we expect more delays in the future? Share on Facebook, Twitter, or in the comments section below.
