While the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) was initiated for enrollment on October 1, 2013, and has since run into multiple problems, the Heritage Foundation released a parody video on Wednesday outlining what a disaster President Obama’s healthcare plan really is.
Rob Bluey of Heritage blog said, “With so much going wrong and things only getting worse — we decided to introduce some comedy into the Obamacare debate. Taxpayer-funded commercials paint a rosy picture of the Affordable Care Act. But, let's face it, Obamacare is unworkable.”
“The government takeover of health care is no laughing matter, but this video is pretty darn funny.”
Meanwhile, critics are calling Obamacare a complete train wreck.
Fox news reported that reports have since surfaced about warning signs that the site was not ready for launch and that the price tag for the site had grown from $93 million to $634 million.
Fox News cited a report on Digital Trends who said, “That the befuddled beast that is Healthcare.gov has shutdown, crapped out, stalled, and mis-loaded so consistently that its track record for failure is challenged only by Congress.”
“The exact cost to build Healthcare.gov, according to U.S. government records, appears to have been $634,320,919, which we paid to a company you probably never heard of: CGI Federal,” said Andrew Couts of Digital Trends. “The company originally won the contract back in 2011, but at that time, the cost was expected to run “up to” $93.7 million – still a chunk of change, but nothing near where it apparently ended up.”
