Health and Human Services Secretary found a new culprit to blame for the Titanic-like launch of the Obamacare website: Congressional Republicans. So how could it be the fault of the people who were shut out of helping create it, voted solidly against it, and had nothing whatsoever to do with building it? Well, they weren't able to test the website because of the government shutdown.
One problem with that argument: both the government shutdown and the Obamacare website launch happened the first week of October. Who waits to test a massive web project until the day it's launched? It should've been tested for months before then, but the contractors testified last week that that was impossible because they got an order from the White House to change the programming for political purposes, and that change was one of the major problems that causes the crashes. It's become the hallmark of this Administration that nobody's ever responsible for anything: Not Benghanzi, the IRS scandal, the NSA, Fast and Furious, and now, even their own website. They may eventually need Obamacare themselves after their wear out their fingers from pointing them at other people.
Sec. Sebelius also brushed off the rising calls for President Obama to demand her resignation, and insisted that nobody would be fire. She said she doesn't work for the people who want her to resign. Funny, I thought she worked for the taxpayers, and I bet a lot of them wouldn't mind seeing some heads roll about now. Still, when someone screws up that badly and isn't fired, it tells me that she was following orders from the White House. You fire people when they embarrass you through their own mistakes. But if they were carrying out your orders, you can't fire them, because then, they'll tell the world they were only doing what they were told. The formula in this Administration, like in much of Washington, has been "Screw up, cover up, move up." Protect the guy upstairs, and you'll get promoted, no matter how bad a job you've done. In this case, though, the screw-up is so public, so obvious, and affects so many Americans, that maybe at long last, the buck might stop at the White House.
