Captain Rick: The rollout of the ObamaCare website ‘Healthcare.gov’ was a fiasco. The look on the face of Secretary Sebelius as she receives a a copy of ‘Web Sites for Dummies’ is ‘priceless’ and speaks for itself.


The book was a gift from GOP Tennessee Senator Brian Kelsey, an opponent of ObamaCare’s Medicaid expansion, who was on hand when Sebelius visited a Memphis library on November 4, 2013 to promote the new national health plan. When Kelsey sprung the gift on her, the embattled HHS secretary didn’t look particularly grateful, as revealed in a photo snapped by the Memphis Daily News.

At the event, Sibelius continued her apology tour for the botched site – while vowing to fix it.

The do-it-yourself guide, which goes for about $25 on Amazon, bills itself as “a step-by-step guide for creating your own web sites.”

According to estimates, the feds have spent $630 million on information technology for the creation and rollout of Healthcare.gov, which has been beset with problems and shut down repeatedly.

      I just received my ObamaCare Insurance application from my new employer. The least expensive plan for myself and my wife is $975/month. (pre Tax) Is that affordable care?
      This is a complete debacle. I’m contacting Kaiser for a private plan. I may have to go without insurance.

        Hi Ken,
        Thanks for your comment. In reality there is nothing affordable about Obamacare. I have a hunch many more will be following by going without healthcare. It looks to me that the main thing that Obamacare has accomplished is for many employers to have an excuse to stop insuring employees at the company’s expense. I see Obamacare as a blunder with a predesigned course to fail so that full socialized medicine will come to the rescue…similar to the socialistic system Canada has. I hope to follow with more reports on this subject.
