Obamacare is a FAILURE!! Obamacare is a FAILURE!! Kneel before Koch! Oh, the right-wing fantasy machine is a powerful beast, capable of moving mountains (of stupid). And that machine burns loads of high octane furl in the form of bias, ignorance and (preferably) outright lies. John Boehner knows the good stuff when he sees it…unfortunately for him, we all saw him coming, too.
On November 21st, Boehner managed to set down his glass of Koch-niac long enough to post “My Attempt to Sign Up For Health Care” on his (government sponsored) blog, Speaker.gov. Here he is, not posing for a picture while extremely hung over:
(Please note, no red lights on the phone.)
The Speaker of the Keystone XL wrote:
“Earlier this afternoon, I sat down to try and enroll in the DC exchange under the president’s health care law. Like many Americans, my experience was pretty frustrating. After putting in my personal information, I received an error message. I was able to work past that, but when I went to actually sign up for coverage, I got this “internal server error” screen. Despite multiple attempts, I was unable to get past that point and sign up for a health plan. We’ve got a call into the help desk. Guess I’ll just have to keep trying…
Updated (5:35 pm ET:) Kept at it, and called the DC Health Link help line. They called back a few hours later, and after re-starting the process on the website two more times, I just heard from DC Health Link that I have been successfully enrolled.”
Oh, those liberal BASTARDS. If the Speaker of the House himself can’t get through, what chance do the rest of us have? Obama has failed…all hail Overlord Charles Koch!
Oh, wait…what do you mean “this call is being recorded for quality assurance?“
Indeed, this little stunt backfired big time on the Speaker…”Boehned” him, if you will. Scott MacFarlane, an NBC affiliate reporter broke the news on Twitter:
“Scott MacFarlane @MacFarlaneNews: DC health exchange spokesman says Speaker Boehner office kept DC representative on hold 35 minutes, “lots of patriotic hold music,” hung up.”
