GOP sabotage of HealthCare.gov

Although the statute provided plenty of money to help states build their own insurance exchanges, it included no money for the development of a federal exchange — and Republicans would block any funding attempts. According to one former administration official, [Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen] Sebelius simply could not scrounge together enough money to keep a group of people developing the exchanges working directly under her.

So, the federal exchange that Republicans said wouldn’t work ended up not working because it was starved of the money needed to help make it work.

A larger number of states than expected were signaling that, under Republican pressure, they would refuse to build their own online insurance marketplaces and would rely on the federal one. The more states in the federal exchange, the more complex the task of building it. Yet, according to several former officials, White House staff would not let this fact be included in the specifications. Their concern, one former official said, was that Republicans would seize on it as evidence of a feared federal takeover of the health-care system.

That's what Republicanism is. Sabotage for the rich. But their sabotage has gone off the cliff with the Tea Party crowd. The dipshits they put in forgot who's shoe's they shine and were sabotaging the riches interests more than the poors for the rich.

So now, the Chamber of Commerce gave Bob McDonnell close to 1 million dollars. Ken Cuccinelli didn't get one single red cent. Not a single red cent. Even the rich are sick of them.

The government could have given every person 1 million dollars for their healthcare fees and spent less than they have on setting up the website and exchange.
