… Touchy , Aren’t You [Cover Oregon] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,February 11th,2014

.. paging Dr. Kitzhaber , paging Dr. Kitzhaber .

.. John Kitzhaber is not going to have a fun or easy year . He is on the ballot for re – election , which is something he has experience with . Kitz ran for and won 2 terms before leaving office , due to term limits . Now , he is back , and is going to be on the ballot again . But , it will be far more difficult .

.. Oregon is an off – year Governor ‘ s state , so Kitz does not have the benefit of the turnout machine of POTUS to help him . Also , he does not have Ron Wyden on the ballot , either . Wyden is a far better politician , and also served in the U.S. House , as well as the Oregon Senate . He is no dummy , and has the connections with the eco-socialists and the unions that Jeff Merkely [who is on the ballot with Kitz] lacks . So , Kitzhaber has a big problem .

.. Well , he has an even bigger problem : Cover Oregon . Oregon chose to operate a state – level exchange , a choice that may or may not have been wise . The federal exchange is having enough problems , but it is doing dandy , in comparison to Cover Oregon , which is an abject disaster . C.O. is all the responsibility of Governor John Kitzhaber …

.. Which explains this blunder from this past week . Kitzhaber was having a press availability , with the local media  in that particular area present . Well , the articles from KATU – TV [ABC] and other media have been getting a lot more press in Oregon these days . C.O. is a disaster , with the waste of over $300 million in taxpayer dollars …

.. People are asking questions , and Dr. Kitz is getting touchy …

… the Idiots are At It Again in Oregon [ObamaCrapCare] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,February 8th,2014

.. believe it or not , it is getting worse .

.. when we last left them , the website from hell , CoverOregon , was a disaster . The state government in Salem had managed to piss away around a quarter of a billion [yes , $250 million] dollars in taxpayer funds on the entire enterprise . The federal website [healthcare.gov] is bad enough , folks . This state – level one is even worse than that , if it is possible .

.. Yes , it is possible . Governor John Kitzhaber (himself a doctor) has led the effort to piss all of that money down the rat hole . Now , Kitz & Company (along with Jeff Merkely , the state ‘ s junior US Senator) are up for election this fall . The fallout from this is going to be devastating . And it keeps getting worse ….

.. somehow , these jokers managed to piss away another [yes , ANOTHER] $100 million in fed funds on the enterprise . Remember , CoverOregon is a state -level exchange . The state of Oregon is responsible for it all . And , you will love this next fact …

.. Number of people enrolled by the website — 0 [zero , the big Zippo] ..

.. these dummies managed to create dummy websites to fool the federales in order to keep the $$$ flowing ,especially the early $$ (before the main $$ stash arrived) …

.. [h/t — hotair] also [h/t — katu.com] — KATU –  TV , Salem , Oregon .

.. [link] to the news report .. it is a bit long (at about 10 minutes) , but it is well worth it .

.. the DemoCraps in Salem [Oregon ‘ s state capitol] have to be swearing at KATU – TV over this . The investigative reporting on this stuff is fantastic as well as damning . The DummyCraps who control Oregon ‘ s legislature are going to have to investigate this with a fine – tooth comb . Either they do , or a new GOP majority will do so .

.. The state Dem party is going to hate that , but tough . The ads that interest groups , the stateGOP , and the campaigns (especially Dr. Monica Wehby ‘ US Senate campaign against Merkely) are going to be thick  as fleas , and they are going to be hot as tamales . The DemoRats are going to pay a severe price for this nationwide enough as it is , but this corruption raises what is going on here in Oregon to a whole new level .

.. It is going to be throw  – out – the – bums time this fall in Salem and in Oregon . The only questions are how many , at what level  , and where .

… Cover Oregon is a Disgrace …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,February 6th,2014

.. and it is going to cause all sorts of trouble in the [ ] State .

.. [h/t — theWeeklyStandard] ..

.. [link] to the KATU news report …

.. Oregon is , of course , light Blue . Both U.S. Senators are DemoCraps , 4 of the 5 Congresscritters are Dems , John Kitzhaber [himself a Dr] is a DemGovernor , and the legislature is controlled by the Dems . Things are far from hopeless for the GOP , however .

.. John Kitzhaber (the Dem Gov) is on the ballot and is running for re – election . He faces very fierce opposition , becuase four years ago , he was elected with barely 50% of the vote against a little known GOPer [retired NBA star Chris Dudley] . Not sure if Duds is back , but the Cover Oregon debacle has Kitz on the hot seat , with the heat turned up to White Hot . Which is as hot as it gets . My guess is that this colossal mess will make Kitz a sure loser in November …

.. Kitz going down will drag other Dems with him . Not the congressccritters , though . Only 2 of the other 4 House Dem races are competitive . The Oregon legistlature is another matter . So is Jeff Merkely . Ron Wyden is a wily leg vet , but he is thankful that he is not on the ballot . However , Merkely is , and he is a freshman up for his first re – election . Without His Lordship [POTUS] protecting his back , I believe Merkely will come into big trouble come summertime , espc as it becomes known that Kitz is going down . Then , the legislature ..

.. The legislature is competitive , much more so than most people realize . The numbers are : State House , 26 R , 34 D ;  State Senate , 14 R , 16 D . So , one chamber , the other , or both could flip with a big enough wave . The possibility is that the Oregon Senate will flip . The Oregon House is another matter . His Lordship is not on the ballot , and Kitzhaber is , which will make for a very interesting couple of days after election day .

— note — Oregon conducts its elections entirely by mail . So the news of who wins and who controls may not be known until a couple of days after Election Day ..
