Cruz Tells CNN Sebelius "Absolutely" Should Resign Over Train Wreck! Cruz Should Resign Over His Train Wreck
Yes, "Green Eggs and Ham" Cruz, the man responsible for the government's shutdown was invited on CNN as a voice of reason to give his analysis of why the new Obamacare site has failed and who should be held accountable.
Cruz was asked who should be held accountable. when he and CNN failed to hold him accountable for having cost hundreds of thousands of government and private sector workers to lose their jobs for three weeks.
CNN appears to have jumped on Cruz's 'Rock Star Status' to boost rating and assure potential conservative advertising dollars that they too have a 'fair and balanced' approach to the news.
"Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius sat down with CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta on Tuesday night for an interview she spent the majority of defending the Affordable Care Act and the many glitches currently plaguing the health care law’s website. Gupta repeatedly brought up the “frustration” people feel at not being able to access the site, pressing her on how many people have actually signed up and how long it would take to get fixed for those who haven’t.
Gupta noted how there were concerns before the site’s launch that it wasn’t ready, and asked, “How was the decision made to still go forward?” Sebelius deferred, insisting that “we have a product” that works well and emphasizing how long people have been waiting to finally get health insurance.
Gupta pressed Sebelius on whether she personally finds the site challenging and exactly when President Obama was aware of the site’s many problems. Sebelius said Obama was made aware in the “first couple of days,” but not before then. And on the point of how many people have actually signed up, Sebelius merely said they will provide monthly enrollment figures.
Gupta brought up the calls of her resignation if these glitches persist. Sebelius said she hasn’t given that a second thought, just keeping her focus on improving the site and working with contractors to bring their “A-team” to the table for this. Gupta asked, “Why didn’t they bring the A-team in the first place?”
Here's the link I promised. The reason for the failure of the Obamacare website is described in detail here, CNN. I found it on Google! And I didn't have to ask Ted Cruz his opinion. Funny, eh?
