Fox Guest on Obamacare Website: ‘Al Qaeda Couldn’t Have Run This Worse’
Former insurance executive and Health Policy and Strategy Associates President Robert Laszewski told Fox’s Megyn Kelly Monday night that al Qaeda could not have run a worse website than the Affordable Care Act federal exchange portal.
“The federal health care exchange is simply not going to be working” by January 1st, Laszewski said. “The Health and Human Services Department held a briefing on Friday, a progress report, and said every time they find something broken, they fix it, and then find something else broken. This is just a disaster. Al Qaeda couldn’t have run this worse than the Obama Administration has run Healthcare.gov.”
Laszewski said he had been in contact with insurers, who confirmed the enrollment numbers released by the Wall Street Journal yesterday.
“The numbers the Wall Street Journal reported, 50,000, are accurate,” Lasczewski said. “They jibe with the numbers I have been hearing. More than that. It’s 50,000 people, but it works out to about 50 people per state per day. Do the math. 30 days, 36 states, 50 people a day…That’s the trickle that’s getting through Healthcare.gov right now. Very, very few people are able to make it through this gauntlet.”
