Chris Jacobs July 8, 2013 Heritage.org

Even Democrats have admitted the law has turned into a massive “train wreck,” with delays, glitches, and problems aplenty. Here are a dozen more Obamacare implementation failures. Continue reading

I worked in the NHS for 30 years. Dad died in the worst ward I’d ever seen: Daughter’s fury at ‘filthy and understaffed’ hospital
- Jane Gill said James Bollen contracted three illnesses while in hospital

- Claims 92-year-old father went without food and water during stay

James Bollen, 92, died last week after contracting three illnesses during a four-week stay at Weston General Hospital in Somerset.

Kathleen Sebelius, Health and Services Secretary, was busy soliciting money in behalf of Obamacare community-organizing group Enroll America. According to Reuters, Sebelius asked since March H&R block and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to fund the Obamacare registration program organized by Enroll America, a non-profit organization run by Obama’s former campaign backers and tapped to enroll Americans to Obamacare starting this coming October.
H&R Block said they have not made any commitment to Enroll America while the Johnson Foundation has given a total of $14 million already since 2010. Enroll America was launched in 2011 by leaders of Obamacare advocate Families USA. Its board of directors and advisers are the following:
Obama is not going to have problem raising money for Enroll America or for himself. He got Hollywood millionaires and billionaires to add to his fund raisers. He got Soros, Buffett, Bill Gates, Progressive insurance owner Lewis, Google and Facebook billionaires. His real problem is how to explain to the young and mostly clueless Americans that they have to enroll for Obamacare or else face penalty.

Sarah Hall Ingram, former IRS commissioner on tax-exempt organizations from 2009-20012 and was in charge of the department during the Tea Party targeting, is also the current director of the Obamacare IRS division. In November 2011, during a testimony Ingram introduced herself before Congress as commissioner of tax-exempt organizations as well as “executive lead on the IRS” on small employer tax credit operational planning and implementation and other provisions. Majority of small business owners are Republicans and don’t support Obamacare. Imagine the Obamacare thuggery and other intimidation tactics that’s coming for these small business owners courtesy of the Obamacare IRS division.
Although Ingram was in-charge during the time the IRS was targeting Tea Party and other conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status, her successor Joseph Grant, who was appointed a week ago and already announced his resignation by June 3, is taking the fall for the IRS scandal. For some reason, the White House is making sure blaming the “two rogue low-level employees ” from Ohio office should remain as the “scapegoat script memo” while exonerating the higher officials obviously involved in the IRS targeting scheme.
