… Oracle has CoverOregon by ” the Balls ” …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,July 18th,2014

.. and John Kitzhaber is in real deep ” dutch . ”

.. Larry Ellison , Oracle ‘ s principal shareholder and CEO , is not one to be trifled with . It is especially the case when his company ‘ s reputation is involved . If CoverOregon (and the State of Oregon) have been playing political games with their website , and refused to put it into operation for political reasons , then watch out …

.. I do not have a high opinion of John Kithaber . I believe that he is in far more political trouble than most folks realize . I think that former State House speaker and businessman Dennis P Richardson has a better – than – even case for defeating Kitzhaber in November ‘ s election . I hope that he does …

.. the fallout from this could really be massive . If it is proven that Oracle was right , and the website was ready , then the State of Oregon is wasting tens of millions of dollars , both on joining the federal set-up , and on manual processing of applications . Also , Kitz ‘ s actions would be considered to be an impeacheable offense , as well as several crimes . A special prosecutor should then be appointed . Also , if the Oregon House refuses to act , the voters will . November ‘ s election could get real interesting …

.. boy , oh boy , Jay Rockefeller should have known better .

.. he is well past his political prime , and it shows . He may be a committee chairman , but his effective political power is fading , and fading fast …

.. there is an art to slapping down a Senate colleague . Boy , did Ron Johnson [R – Ws] really hit it out of the park in his various comebacks in hammering Rockefeller in his political cheap shot …

… What a Waste [ObamaCrapCare]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,May 12th,2014

… Why the Screwup with Cover Oregon ?? …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,May 7th,2014

.. [-] tax money — it flowed like wine — giving a state a lot of money to play with is a prescription for trouble . You have to be careful …

.. [-] philosophy — why a big – government takeover ? sttopid …

.. [-] fraud — the taxpayers of Oregon were defrauded . So were we all nationwide . The Oregonians were the biggest victims , though . They were stuck with a lemon , an Edsel of a website …

.. [-] website design — the feds did not help by screwing around as much as they did . It would have helped to have the design of the federal setup available so much ealier so that states could test out the design …

… Now Maryland has Company [ObamaCrapCare failure]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,April 25th,2014

.. Cover Oregon has died …

.. huh ? ..

.. the nation ‘ s worst ObamaCrapCare disaster [@ $330 million] is the state exchange in Oregon . At least now the taxpayers in D.C. and Salem (Oregon) will get some peace …

.. [link] to the post ..

.. A tech panel in Governor Dr. John Kithaber ‘ s administration and the state exchange board has recommended that the exchange website , CoverOregon , be shut down . Oregon would then come under the umbrella of the Department of H.H.S. , and their applications would be covered thusly ….

… Maryland drops its Health Exchange …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,April 15th,2014

.. but it wants to replace it with …. Connecticut ‘ s ?? …

.. are they kidding ?

.. [h/t LegalInsurrection]..
.. [link] to the blog post …

.. evidently they are not . They are going to blow even more money [after bloweing almost $150 million already] , and they are going to take a Conn model and plug it in , at a cost of $ 30 million after modifications …

.. anyone want to take bets that it is another CoverOregon in the making ? At least Governor Dr. John Kitzhaber is trying to pick up the pieces [unsuccessfully , so far] . If CoverOregon needs to , they will shut down their own site , at the Governor ‘ s direction , and pick up the federal exchange … Mrtin O ‘ Malley in Maryland is an arrogant narcissistic ass . I do not think that plugging in another state ‘ s model will work all that well … not all that well at all …

… Cover Oregon Strikes Again …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,March 9th,2014

.. you figure that those idiots in Oregon could design something ?

.. you would be wrong …

.. this time , the dummies misdesigned CoverOregon , and it let in so – called ” undocumented immigrants ” [read : illegals] . Call them what you will , but they are not supposed to be covered in those creatures called ObamaCrapCare exchanges . Whoops …

.. Boy , Oh Boy , it is going to be fun come November . John Kitzhaber , Jeff Merkely & Co are going to get a thorough scrubbing at the election polls . How many of them survive ? Who knows ? Given the numbers in the Oregon legislature , one chamber or both will likely go Red [Republican] . They could even have a Republican Governor , given the disgrace that Kitz has made of himself ….
