At the end of his stand-up routine, Obama thought it was funny to joke about his disastrous healthcare overhaul and the epically embarrassing rollout of Healthcare.gov. It “could’ve gone better,” Obama said of the glitch-ridden website. Obama added that the website turned out to be one of the year’s biggest cinematic blockbusters, “Frozen.”
”In 2008 my slogan was ‘Yes we can,'” Obama said. “In 2013 my slogan was ‘Control-alt-delete.”’
At the conclusion of his 20-minute act, disgraced Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius joined Obama on stage to help him fix a technical issue. When a video Obama teased failed to play properly, he asked, “Does anybody know how to fix this?” To laughter, Sebelius said, “I got this. I see it all the time.”
Sure, the White House Correspondents’ Dinner is a time for presidents to poke fun at the media, politicians, and the like. Obama took jabs at Republicans, MSNBC, and himself.
However, Obamacare is no laughing matter.
As the White House stalls and refuses to report the amount of people who’ve paid for their new Obamacare plans, one state has reported that less than half of its Obamacare enrollees are paying their premiums. Americans’ hours are still being cut due to Obamacare. And there are the security concerns of healthcare.gov and the millions wasted on the flawed website.
It’s shameful that Obama finds it funny that millions of Americans have lost their healthcare coverage, their jobs, their and doctors due to his signature “accomplishment”.
The latest Real Clear Politics average of polls shows that 51% of Americans oppose Obamacare.
