Blitzer: ...more than a week after its launch, the federal healthcare website is still plagued by problems. Long wait times, error messages, crashes are preventing many people from signing up for insurance. If they had three years to get this ready, if they weren't fully ready, they should accept the advice Republicans are giving them, delay it for a year, get it to ready and make sure it works....there are health insurance sites that work great."
That would really solve the problem, Wolfie. NOT. All big projects are going to have problems at the start and nobody has to sign up for the new healthcare plans until 2014, you stupid Villagers. So why do you care that in the first week of its inception, there are 'glitches' in the system? What did you expect? And if the administration heeded Blitzer's advice, the country would be at the mercy of the Tea party House members and the Cruz faction in the Senate, since they've shut the government down over their temper tantrums. Nothing helpful to America would ever get done.
It hardly needs to be said that just about every major program like this has had kinks to work out in the beginning, including Medicare Part D and Medicare itself. An online implementation this far-reaching that also has to work with private insurance sites is going to have problems at first that often can't be sussed out until it goes live. Delaying it a year won't fix that. None of which even touches the principle involved that if the President gives in to this hostage-taking now, it will change the face of American government for the forseeable future.
