Dateline Wednesday October 30, 2013 – Portland Oregon: In the wake of Oregon’s failed Obamacare website called “Cover Oregon,” Governor John Kitzhaber denies that the site has failed and refuses to accept responsibility.
This despite the fact that the Seattle Times confirms:
“Oregon, where state officials acknowledge not a single resident has been able to enroll through the website of that state’s exchange, called Cover Oregon, because the site still is not fully functioning.”
The reporter wants to know if Kitzhaber will take the blame or if Cover Oregon’s Executive Director Rocky King will be the fall guy. Kitz refuses to answer. He “does the dodge” and jumps into the waiting elevator but he’s cornered. One of Kitzhaber’s thugs shoves and blocks the videographer in the doorway but he manages to get by. Kitz is caught.
Another henchman reaches for the camera. Quote the videographer: “Stay away from the camera: that’s my First Amendment right.” Tens of thousands of Oregonians are now caught between their existing perfectly good affordable insurance policies canceled by the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and the State’s non-functioning Cover Oregon web site. The Kitz seems to still be in denial.
