CoverOregon the state's latest debacle, in a long and distinguished list of failed software and public works projects, has made national news once again. We were told that the states that embraced Obamacare, those run by DEMOCRATS would have a far more successful result than those depending n the federal website. Ironically states like Oregon and apparently Minnesota and Hawaii DEMOCRAT RUN states have even worse results than Healtcare.gov the poster child for government ineptness.

The truly sad result is that millions if not billions that could have provided HEALTHCARE to sick people were wasted on moronic commercials and broken websites. How much better off our citizens would be if someone had focused on the goal...to get HEALTHCARE to sick people instead of creating these giant morasses where they are now stuck.

My only hope is that this incredibly unsuccessful venture into government run healthcare will inoculate us against any further effort to federalize a highly personal and individual service.
