A Texas schoolteacher, Thomas J. Ritter, wrote a letter highly critical of President Obama's health care initiative, the Affordable Health Care Act aka Obamacare. The fifth grade teacher in Texas told President Obama, "This bill has caused such a divisive, dirisive [sic], and toxic environment … The reality is that any citizen that disagrees with your administration is targeted and ridiculed. I hesitated to write for fear of some kind of retribution. I watched you make fun of tea baggers and your press secretary make fun of Ms. Palin which was especially beneath the dignity of the White House.” Amazingly, President Obama not only responded, he replied in his own handwriting to Mr. Ritter.

News Item: Almost 80 million with employer healthcare plans could be canceled.
Heretofore, it had been individual health insurance plans that were susceptible to the tentacles of Obamacare. As many as 5 million have lost their individual health insurance plans since Obamacare was rolled out. But, now, employer and group health insurance plans are in the cross-hairs of Obamacare. Stan Veuger of the American Enterprise Institute said that in addition to the individual cancellations, "at least half the people on employer plans would by 2014 start losing plans as well."

Another week, another hilarious direction of failure for the Obama lovechild, Obamacare. There is so much news about the failure(s) of Obamacare until I am almost immune to any bad news about this monstrosity. "Almost" is the keyword here. The failure of the website is a story of and in itself. (I won't even go over the millions of individual healthcare policies cancelled or outright Obama lies on keeping your health plan) How can anyone, even the federal government, not be able to have a working website after you've had over three years to get it ready? A kid in high school, with just a modicum of website design ability, should be able to at least get a working website up and running.
