Sebelius suggests Republicans to blame for ObamaCare website woes

October 26, 2013

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius took a swipe Friday at those calling for her to resign over the botched ObamaCare website rollout, suggesting that Republican efforts to delay and defund the law contributed to’s glitch-ridden debut.

During a visit to a community health center in Austin, Sebelius conceded that there wasn’t enough testing done on the website, but added that her department had little flexibility to postpone the launch against the backdrop of Washington’s unforgiving politics.

“In an ideal world there would have been a lot more testing, but we did not have the luxury of that. And the law said the go-time was Oct. 1,” she said. “And frankly, a political atmosphere where the majority party, at least in the House, was determined to stop this anyway they possibly could … was not an ideal atmosphere.”

Sebelius said her agency tested the site using five times the maximum traffic ever experienced by, a similar site. But she said that was a gross underestimate of the demand placed on She also said the high volume not only contributed to its failure, but also exposed other problems.

Republican Texas Sen. John Cornyn questioned why Sebelius was there. “If she’s still confused about who exactly she works for and if she hasn’t come ready to answer questions about why hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars have been wasted on a botched product, she might as well not visit,” he said in a statement.

    She takes her cues from the scum on top. Eliminate him and the rest will fall like dominoes. If not, this country, as we know it, will.

    This program/LAW was doomed to failure from the beginning. Don’t delay it scrap it and start over. Ther are too many law suits already and I am sure there will be more to come as this garbage is dumped on the american public and they become more aware of just what a lie it is. In the mean time our existing medical coverages are being systematically disassembled. We are screaming down a steep hill and gaining speed.

      I think it is working exactly the Obama envisioned it. You can’t go to single payer if this works. Single payer (the gov’t running everything, no ins co) is his ultimate goal.

      I wish more would wake up, but way too many are awake, but don’t want to give up their entitlements to the tune of 50/60k a year, would rather lay around on their dead a–es and collect the frebbies, don’t care that this kind of money will eventually dry up and end up like cuba, they don’t give a damn at this point, but they will, they will be the first to start rioting in the streets, killing, raping,and stealing, look what they did when their cards didn’t work!!!that WAS just a little GLITCH.
