A Terrible Month For ObamaCare Continues To Get Worse

- June 27, 2013

With Just 96 Days Till Implementation, ObamaCare Continues to Face Missed Deadlines And More Opposition To The Law

DEMOCRAT LEADER NANCY PELOSI (D-CA) CALLED OBAMACARE IMPLEMENTATION EFFORTS "FABULOUS," DESPITE IT NOT BEING READY FOR "PRIME-TIME"

Democrat Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA): "The Implementation Of This [ObamaCare] Is Fabulous." "'The implementation of this is fabulous,' Pelosi said. 'As we observe the Fourth of July, our founders talked about the Declaration of Independence guaranteeing life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness - that is what this is all about.'" (Paige Winfield Cunningham and Jennifer Haberkorn, "Dems To Kathleen Sebelius: Seniors Confused On ObamaCare," Politico, 6/27/13)

ObamaCare "May Not Be Ready For Prime-Time On October 1." "President Obama's signature health care law may not be ready for prime-time on October 1, when people begin signing up for the new insurance exchanges, according to a government report." (Elise Viebeck, "Government Report Questions ObamaCare Readiness," The Hill's Health Watch , 6/19/13)

  • The Fundamental Parts Of The ObamaCare Exchanges "Had Not Been Completed." "The report by the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office (GAO) said key parts of the framework of the exchanges, including those that addressed consumers' eligibility for federal subsidies, management and monitoring of insurance plans and consumer assistance, had not been completed." (David Morgan, "New 'ObamaCare' Exchanges Could Miss Enrollment Deadline: GAO," Reuters, 6/19/13)
  • GAO: The Creation Of The ObamaCare Small Business Exchanges Continues To Fall "Behind Schedule." "Many activities remain to be completed in the core functional areas of eligibility and enrollment, plan management, and consumer assistance, and while the agency has established timelines for completion of these activities, some were behind schedule." ("PPACA: Status Of Federal And State Efforts To Establish Health Insurance Exchanges For Small Business," Government Accountability Office, 6/19/13)
