The Frankenstein Monster Called ObamaCare Awakens
October 2, 2013
Yesterday ObamaCare, the Frankenstein monster of our generation, came alive. It birth was not smooth with “glitches” blamed by Dr. Obama, our modern-day equivalent of the Dr. Frankenstein from Mary Shelley’s famous novel, on “start-up problems.”
Obama incredulously likened these issues to problems encountered by Apple’s recent introduction of new operating software for its I-phone. The analogy was hardly appropriate as few experienced issues with the introduction of the new I-phone. If anyone did, they had recourse. They were not forced to buy a phone, either via threat of taxation or punishment under the law. Furthermore, the government had three years and unlimited funds to prevent the fiasco that occurred.
Many who tried to obey the law and sign up for this ill-conceived monstrosity found the websites dysfunctional. Others who managed to get a live person in lieu of the website(s) were just as frustrated with the lack of direction. Some compared the experience of getting a live person to dealing with the mutant off-spring from a Department of Motor Vehicle’s father and an Internal Revenue Service mother.
