Barack Obama: Error 404

Barack Obama: Error 404

Whatever the current administration of the White House takes, it always has Obamacare and Shutdown.


Taxes in America are holy. Therefore, any problems arising from their accrual or payment receive a wide response and take on the character of a real disaster. On the verge of the latter is the situation with the new database of taxpayers, which the American Tax Administration (Internal Revenue Service, IRS) planned to launch in September 2012 of the year. Since then, the fiscal resource, designed to help US citizens to obtain the necessary information and documents, has not been brought to a functional state. After working only six hours in test mode, the base, designed for simultaneous maintenance of up to 30 000 users and designed to perform 400 000 operations at peak load, required such modifications that its creators grabbed their heads.

It turned out that millions of corrections had to be made to the resource materials, and checking only half of the database’s content revealed more than a thousand system flaws and miscalculations. Bringing to mind the brainchild of the IRS, the initial cost of 47 million dollars, by the most approximate calculations, will cost American taxpayers almost the same amount. And no one guarantees that even after such significant expenses the base will finally work.

Following the tax reform, part of which is the substandard IRS product, frankly immigration is also stalled. Most American politicians and experts agree that in the near future the corresponding 1300-page bill will not be agreed by the White House and Congress. According to the political director of the NBC News channel Chuck Todd (Chuck Todd), the Barack Obama administration is not ready to bargain for this document with the Republican majority of the House of Representatives against the background of its other headache - the Affordable Care Act, better known by people as Obamacare.

The third reform launched by Barack Obama - health care, was rightly considered the key point of the program with which he was going to win a place in the Oval Office. True, today it is more likely to claim the title of the “weakest link” of this very program and is the main reason for the rapid drop in the 44 rating of the US President. And it's not the very idea behind the Affordable Care Act. The idea is good: to "overhaul" the US healthcare system, which has not changed since 60-s of the last century, and provide additional 15 percent of the population (which is almost 32 million) with medical insurance, which was previously inaccessible to them. Summed up the incarnation. More precisely - the site HealthCare.gov, on the virtual pages of which all interested US citizens could get or exchange health insurance policies.

Healthcare.gov and similar resources at the state level launched October 1. And immediately almost the same problems emerged as with the IRS base. Due to the numerous failures and failures of 20, the millions of people who have already visited this federal "insurance exchange" were able to issue less than 10 percent of the new policy. At the same time, every fifth of Obamacare lost the previous medical insurance because of the technical ability to apply for a new one.

The failed premiere of Barack Obama’s "Affordable Care Act" did not fail to take advantage of his political opponents from the Republican partner of the House of Representatives. In early November, Fred Upton, chairman of the Committee on Energy and Commerce, called the site “unusable,” accusing US health and social services Kathleen Sebelius and her subordinates of negligence. “Either these officials didn’t know how inefficient the system was, or they simply didn’t tell anyone about it,” said Upton. “Unfortunately, five weeks have passed since the beginning of this program, but the situation seems to be getting worse every day.”

Republican Congressman Phil Gingrey (Phil Gingrey) directly accused Obama and Sebelius of deceiving voters. And some of his colleagues expressed confidence that success in negotiations with Iran, which ultimately refused from its nuclear program, is a maneuver of the presidential administration, designed to divert the attention of Americans from problems with Obamacare.

The confusion grew into a scandal and reached such a scale that Kathleen Sebelius was forced to make public apologies to fellow citizens: “You deserve the best, I apologize. I am responsible to you for the elimination of these problems and I will make every effort to correct the website and gain your confidence again. ” And then it was time to repent for idle Healthcare.gov personally to Barack Obama. “We will do our best to help those who are in a difficult situation,” the US President promised and added that the government of the country will have to do hard work. However, neither Sebelius nor Obama explained to ordinary citizens why the Obamacare site was not tested in advance. Or why its development was entrusted not to the domestic, but to the Canadian company CGI. Could this be the reason for the fact that the cost of the work was in the end three times higher than planned !? “It’s hard to understand how the $ 93,7 million ceiling rose to $ 292 million,” said Scott Amey, general counsel for government oversight. If this happened in any other country, the White House would instantly start talking about corruption.

Of course, the cost to fine-tune the Healthcare.gov website is fading amid the total US budget expenditures required to implement the Affordable Care Act. According to the US Congressional Budget Office, Obamacare, calculated on 10 years, will ease the pockets of US taxpayers on 1,76 trillion. dollars. And, as calculated by staff at George Mason University in 2012, health care reform will increase the US budget deficit by 530 billions of dollars.

When there is such money and own prestige at stake, which cannot be measured in any currency of the world, you will inevitably start to grab any straw. Vowing that the Healthcare.gov website will work at full capacity by the end of the year, the Bark Obama administration has called for help not only technicians, but also a whole group of American celebrities led by the “sexiest man of the planet-2013” soloist of the American pop-rock band "Maroon 5" by Adam Levine. The main goal of this powerful PR company is to cover about one hundred million Americans using 16 of various Internet services (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, MySpace, etc.) to convince them to purchase medical insurance through Obamacare before 31 March 2014.

The decision of the White House to save healthcare reform with the help of show business stars, popular actors and social networks in the country does not shine. In this way, the Obama campaign headquarters provided a second presidential term for that, drawing its candidate into active “virtual life” on the pages of 16-ti Internet services. Interestingly, as soon as technical problems and numerous failures began on Healthcare.gov, most Hollywood stars who had previously actively campaigned for Obamacare, on the advice of their PR managers, took a break and went into the shadows. And they can be understood. Image damage from advertising a deliberately “raw” insurance product can hurt the popularity and, as a result, lead to quite tangible financial losses.

But are there enough American stars to overshadow with their authority all the mistakes, miscalculations and blunders of the Barack Obama administration, whose dark aura seems to have even reached the American segment of the International Space Station.

          Artyom Dragunov: "The world has gone awesome movement. They are digging under Obama hard. He's like Putin - about to get divorced, he has problems with supporters, the army puts pressure on him and everything has slowed down with projects. One major disaster - and there will be unpleasant movements in the states. a black-and-white conflict is brewing.

          In France - a mess. Italy is already on the verge. Britain is spreading, bureaucratic to the very balls. Only Deutschland holds on, but pulling everyone is also difficult. Therefore there will be a movement. The Germans and raise the old archives and merge Old to throw gasoline to the fires ....

          Bad another. The worst is ripening in China and Asia. There, people have already matured. It soon starts to smell so that the whole world will freeze in jitters ....
          Young people want and are eager for the future and do not aspire to the Middle Ages, but with gadgets, but in Asia they are dragged there by force ....

          There will be a change of elite in the world. Everything and everywhere. It is time and 2014 is the year of great changes.
          In 2015 we will enter a little different. By 2017, the world will be completely different. And we will all catch it.

          As I already wrote, in 2014 we will face the third Chernobyl, the most powerful hurricane in the history of mankind, farewell to the 20th century, a change of global elites, the most powerful earthquake in the entire history of observations, but we can handle it. We weren't that worried, were we? "

    Obama is not a loser and not a victim of circumstances, but rather an adventurer. If the US economy were in good condition, he would not be allowed to come close to the White House. He plays his role as a scapegoat (or just a goat), and he knows about it well. the task is to hold out on the surface as much as possible and not drown in economic or other disasters. There is a carte blanche.

    Hmmm. Along the way, they have a personnel crisis in the States not only in the government, but even with the programmers. The "Indian code" actually turns out laughing
    And with Obamacare, the Yankees really have a hat. I here somehow translated an article from the Washingtion Post on an Asper. so there even the name speaks for itself - "The main losers of health care reform." Those. all those whose insurance was canceled, and until December 27, they had not had time to buy a new one. And such as they correctly wrote - 10 million. Moreover, "heavy" - those who have honey insurance costs from 60 thousand "green" and above - from 300 to 500 thousand people ... So I'm actually surprised, that he was given a trust rating of 44% ...

      Woman: if they fire me, tomorrow you will have a demonstration under the windows for women's rights.
      Negro: if they fire me the world will know that you hate people of color.
      Disabled person: you cannot violate the rights of people with disabilities.

    Putin has the same thing.
    I think that Obama took an example from the Putin-Medvedev tandem.
    For those, for whatever they take it, it either doesn’t work at all - all the money has been stolen, or they will make it, but it will cost a lot more than the original and will fall apart soon.
    Looking for examples? The "Healthcare" program is when the equipment purchased at an exorbitant price, rusts not installed or does not work due to the lack of specialists. "Education" to provide computers for all schools. APEC took place at a construction site with roads being destroyed before our eyes. Saino-Shushenskaya HPP and other high-tech enterprises, when Putin's privatizers pump profits and do not invest in repair and modernization. Olympics 2014, which will bring many surprises. It will be good if nothing collapses during the competition.
    And this list of "good ideas, but not completed cases" can be extended endlessly.

    US democracy is in fact an oligarchy. There have been no independent presidents since the days of F. Roosevelt. Well, maybe also Kennedy, who became president through an oversight of the sponsors. Election debt is like a card debt, you have to pay it. Obama has worn about health care reform since his election. If he was allowed to run for a second term, then the sponsors approved it, and these people are very careful about their wallets. Considering that money in the United States invariably ends up in a couple of hundred pockets, we are witnessing another performance when both camps of sheep voters are happy and the wolf meat factory is working. Everything is like the classic "rabbits made love and did not suspect that they were being bred"

    Political correction, damn it! Black at the helm. This was originally some kind of catch. Maybe he was elected only so that everyone saw the blacks love!

    It’s good that Obama is considered a loser. Which state - such and power - such and the president.

    Or maybe the US business elite is preparing something unimaginable and Obamka is chosen as the "sacrificial lamb"? Because let each party have its own sponsors, but basically they always agreed (after all, business) not right there. It means that something is being "blurred" and soon the world will know that (I think, even before the US elections).

    Yes, everything is normal. The obyyanka at the helm is the country. The woman at the helm is the country, the woman-obyzyanka at the helm is generally everything. Remember that his nonsense graduated immediately upon arrival at the White House? Started to dig a garden. Although our child rules the domestic politics, there is also little good. Now he has blown up in Volgograd, let’s see how the authorities react to this. Will they begin to press blacks or will they endure before the Olympics? We are still ahead of the Islamist rally in Moscow. The reaction of the authorities is also interesting there.

    We need to send a couple of tons of bananas to the White House and everything will normalize.

    Obama is not independent. It is paid. And he acts by order. He, a Muslim, does not care deeply about the country of Christians. For him, it's just making money. And money, self-interest for Muslims is more important than conscience. Those. conscience is simply not provided for by Islam. (Read the Qur'an) I think that at the end of the presidency he will simply be removed as an extra witness.

    Basically, Obama is a worthy successor to Bush. After Clinton, they are not lucky with the presidents. In general, after Roosevelt, the United States did not have a worthy leader who can be respected.
