Biden: Obamacare Off to “Hell of a Start”


Despite innumerable hiccups and a torrent of detrimental “glitches,” the Affordable Care Act will soon be off to a “hell of a start,” Vice President Joe Biden said Wednesday.

In an unannounced appearance at a coffee shop in Minneapolis, the vice president, widely known for his penchant for misspeaking at public venues, said Americans will likely miss the sign up goal of 7 million, the number of people the federal government has decided is crucial for the ACA to function properly.

“We may not get to 7 million, but if we get to 5 or 6 million that’s a hell of a start,” Biden said, according to Politico.

The government claims a total of nearly 3.3 million people have signed up for healthcare since January.

Weighing down the federal government’s embattled and immensely expensive online healthcare marketplace’s ability to process enrollees are a wide swath of technical issues, from various glitches to incompetent coding and gaping security vulnerabilities.“We didn’t want this to start off as shaky as it did,” Biden said, acknowledging the bungled healthcare rollout. “But it’s complicated,” the potential presidential hopeful added.

Additionally, several state online portals, which are supposed to redirect users to the federal website, as well as relay their information to the government, have come under fire for failing to properly function.

But despite these issues, Americans are still required to sign up for healthcare by the March 31 deadline or face a penalty of 1 percent of their yearly income, or $95, whichever is higher. Come 2016, that tax will be raised to 2.5 percent of your yearly income, or $695, whichever is higher.

Biden would have you believe that the Affordable Care Act is plugging along wonderfully, never mind the abysmally low sign up numbers – even though the entire system is supposedly dependent on people signing up.

The reality is, however, that Biden technically isn’t lying.. because the system was never meant to work.

As Infowars and others have illustrated, the wealth transfer scheme being passed off as affordable healthcare was written by the insurance companies and designed as yet another method to, among other things, further bankrupt Americans and create insurance monopolies that will weed out smaller companies.

Democrat Senator Max Baucus admitted as much when he “singled out” his congressional aide Liz Fowler for putting “together the White Paper last November 2008, [the] 87-page document which became the basis, the foundation, the blueprint from which almost all health care measures in all bills on both sides of the aisle came.”

As Salon’s Bill Moyers highlighted, Fowler “used to work for WellPoint, the largest health insurer in the country. She was Vice President of Public Policy. And now she’s working for the very committee with the most power to give her old company and the entire industry exactly what they want: higher profits, and no competition from alternative non-profit coverage that could lower costs and premiums.”

“Under this administration as well,” former Congressman Ron Paul stated in a CNN interview last year, “the drug companies, the insurance companies, organized medicine…they’re the ones who write these laws, and it’s corporations that are making out on this deal.”
