Leave it to the government to screw up ObamaCare so bad, that they have to create a lower bar for their own low standards.
And that’s what is being proposed for ObamaCare. A website–particularly one that will cost in excess of $1 billion–should be able to process 100 percent of all orders. However, according to the Washington Post report, the Fed will be happy with ObamaCare if 80 percent of people can enroll online.
The Obama administration will consider the new federal insurance marketplace a success if 80 percent of users can buy health-care plans online, according to government and industry officials familiar with the project.
Can you imagine Amazon being happy to process 80 percent of their orders? What if Fed-Ex only gave you an 80 percent guarantee of delivery? Actually, that would make them the U.S. Post Office.
How pathetic is the lowering of the bar? If you are part of the 20 percent who can’t enroll on ObamaCare, can you get on Obama’s insurance plan, or is that only reserved for Congress and big donors?
If the Fed is happy with 80 percent enrollment as a goal, it means they will accept 50 percent. If they will accept 50 percent enrollment, it means they will achieve 30 percent, and then explain away their original lowering of the bar.
30 percent will become the new benchmark (as it has been with those people serving as president), and it will be heralded by Obama, his minions, and of course the Main Stream Media.
In what has become typical of the Obama administration, and Liberalism in general, doing things with excellence is a thing of the past. All you need to do is try.
