WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama claimed "full responsibility" Wednesday for fixing his administration's much-maligned health insurance website as a new concern surfaced: a government memo pointing to security worries, laid out just days before the launch.

She will probably not know anything, just like her boss Obama keeps claiming, no matter what the issue is. Whether they are lying or just plain incompetent, they are putting America in danger. I hope everyone will enjoy sharing this pain and reward the Democrats in next year's elections by making them unemployed. The most inept President and administration in history.

Had effective leadership executed as much campaigned, this would not be an issue. Still, watch Progressives blame their political adversaries as opposed to holding President Obama accountable. Cannot wait for the book, "Infallible - History of the President Who Made No Errors!"

People posting on this subject are missing the main point. The ACA would NEVER have passed if the Democrats and especially Obama didn't lie about it.. Does anyone think that it would have passed if we were told that we won't be able to keep our plan, we won't be able to keep our doctors or that if you don't get a subsidy, you will be paying more. Or if you are married and you will be forced to pay for paternity and birth control benifits, even though your wife is 58. And let's not forget that I now have to have my plan cover children 26 and under, even though my kids are 44 and 41.

What an absolutely disgusting administration. A good lot of these people should be in prison. Packman, keep up blaming any and everything for Obama's failed policies. You sound really intelligent.

Of course the Republican secret plan would have been better. Right out of Nixon's secret plan to end the Vietnam War. Simple fact is the insurance, pharmaceutical and hospital lobbies spend a lot with the conservatives.

Classic case of asking forgiveness instead of permission. In this case, she oversaw the selection of a contractor who had failed in the past, withheld specs until after the 2012 election, built a site that is an utter mess, had a gov't body managing the program with limited project management experience, etc. I'm sorry doesn't cut it.

Pretend you're a business owner and you're applying for a job and you're interviewing a candidate. Are you going to pick the one who has a plan for your company or are you going to pick the one who's plan is an anti-plan of the other candidate?

As with Obama and the rest of the Democratic party, this woman is pure evil. I pity those who ask where the Republican plan is. If you let the market drive this, you will get the best plan. But in order to buy votes the left needs to destroy the best health care there ever was so they can stay in power.

Why are the 90% of us who have plans seeing our good healthcare being destroyed to supposedly cover the last 10%? What happen to keeping your laws off my body?
