… 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 …

.. the Bundy family & supporters found disturbed ground on the grounds of their ranch and the adjacent range land . That is not unusual . What they found in it was , to say the least …

.. quite a few dead cattle ..

.. dozens of them .

.. evidently because dealing with the B.L.M. and the associates were radioactive , the B.L.M. itself was stuck with the cattle . Instead of giving all of them back , they hauled off and murdered several dozen cattle , including several prize bulls [sire for cows] …

… 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 ..

… The Continuing Controvery over ObamaCrapCare ..

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,January 26th,2014

.. and the chaos therein .

.. the implementation of ObamaCrapCare has been a colossal failure . Even with the repairs of the website , it is not complete . The middle section [the 834 reports on enrollment] is still throwing off periodic errors , giving the insurers little confidence in enrollment numbers and reports from the government . They have had to take action themselves to reconcile things in order to get an accurate idea of who is enrolled , and who is not .

.. What is worse is the back end . It is still being built . Crist , you would figure that it would have been designed and put together before launch . Not so . Since CGI has been canned by the ObamaCraps , and Accenture has been brought in , hopefully there will be prompt and swift progress in the work . CGI was waaaay over its head . Accenture is a class outfit , top – of – the – mark in the consulting business . They should have been brought in in the first place , damn dummies !

.. it does , however , take time to do the work . Since it will take months to fix the whole operation , and finish the back end , Moody ‘ s has put the entire health care sector under negative outlook financially . to be honest , they deserve it …
