Obamacare Expert Rips Obama Admin, Valerie Jarrett For ‘Incompetence,’ ‘Protecting’ POTUS

In an interview with NPR, Steven Brill, author of “America’s Bitter Pill,” slammed the White House for its Obamacare launch, saying there has “never been a group of people who more incompetently launched something.”

Brill’s premiere Obamacare critique, as he tells host Terry Gross, is that the health care overhaul is “emblematic of what’s eating away at our country,” pointing directly to the politics and the “challenge of governance” it presents. Brill also told NPR that President Obama was largely protected by the likes of Valerie Jarrett, and had no idea of the issues until they ultimately reared their head.

BRILL: In every respect, this whole saga of Obamacare, the politics of it, the bitter partisan of it, the lobbying and, in this case, the challenge of governance all are emblematic of what’s eating away at our country. The incompetence in the White House — there have never been a group of people who more incompetently launched something and it’s principally because the people in the administration who knew it was going wrong went to the president directly with memos in person, to his chief of staff  and said ‘we need to bring people in from the outside to launch this,’ and the president was protected, mostly by Valerie Jarrett from doing anything. And, I guess one of the really sadder aspects of this is that nobody who knew it was going wrong spoke out and still hasn’t spoken out, even in the aftermath of the whole thing being a total bust, and for a whole year discrediting the notion that government can actually run a program.

GROSS: So you’re saying Obama was protected by his own people for knowing what was going wrong?

BRILL: He was protected, but you know what, at the end of the day he’s responsible. He kept getting all these reports, he kept getting all these green lights on his laptop on a grid, everything’s going great. Literally the night before the launch on October 1st, his chief of staff called a friend of his and said ‘we’re going to knock your socks off.’ Well, he was right about that. The president, whatever we can say about him on policy and on giving speeches, as a manager, he failed. He did not know what was going on in the single most important initiative of his administration.

Saddest of all....not an American...(patriot or otherwise)...in the entire bunch!!

True that!

ALL COMMUNISTS.  Jarrett is the boss.  Jarrett is an Iranian, enough said?

@Frankmusic,

Talk about cronyism......

It's ....Unbelievable,....right?

@Frankmusic,

I have had some bad reactions to spider bites in the past.

One day I stepped on what I thought was a big black spider and hundreds of baby spiders started running all over the place.  That's what this picture reminds me of and I can't help but think that she is backed by Iran.

BTW, I did feel sorry about killing the mother and baby spiders, but I would have felt worse if they were crawling all around my house.  

This entire country is harmed by protecting this mentally deficient president WHO BY ALL RIGHTS SHOULD RESIGN AS POTUS!

He's nothing more then a CLUELESS MONKEY!

Since Obama became president America has been in her darkest hours.

I don't buy this explanation.
OBAMA knows exactly what he is doing! He can PRETEND all he wants to...like HE had to READ the Newspapers to learn about problems. What an infantile but Sly statement. NO One should believe anything he says...PERIOD.
Everything he DOES puts another NAIL in our republic and our way of life.
He and his anti-AMERICAN group of PLOTTERS are bent on DESTROYING OUR COUNTRY and our system of values from WITHIN USING our own laws....WHICH OBAMA PERVERTS!

You are right, Patriot. He knows exactly what he is doing. He is following the Communist strategy laid out by Richard Cloward and Francis Fox Piven....to a T. Not only is he a Communist ....he is a Muslim....hell bent on destroying America.

HE NEEDS TO BE TRIED FOR TREASON. HOW MUCH DOES IT TAKE?????

You give monkeys bad rap.

Deep State Treason:  Former State Dept. Official Under Trump Tells China To Quit Negotiating Until Trump Is Removed In 2020

Deep state traitors no longer hide their deep hatred for the American people —

Mrs. Susan Thornton, the former acting assistant secretary of state in the Trump administration, told her Beijing audience to stop negotiating until President Trump is removed from office in 2020.

Until July 2018, she was Acting Assistant Secretary for East Asian and Pacific Affairs at the Department of State and led East Asia policy making amid crises with North Korea, escalating trade tensions with China, and a fast-changing international environment.

The Conservative Treehouse and The South China Morning News reported:

A former official in the Trump administration has said that China can weather the storm brought by the trade war with the United States but might have to “keep steady, keep their heads down and wait” for change in the White House.

Susan Thornton, former acting assistant secretary of state to US President Donald Trump, told a gathering in Shanghai on Wednesday that she hoped a trade deal between the US and China could be concluded by next month.

But the reality was that it would “take a while” for China and the US to talk about cooperation again, Thornton, who in 20 years rose to become the US State Department’s chief negotiator for East Asia and Pacific affairs, told the South China Morning Post.

“I want to be optimistic,” said Thornton, whose 27-year career in Washington ended in July. “I tell all our foreign counterparts they should keep steady, keep their heads down and wait. [They should] try to not let anything change dramatically.”

“If this sceptical attitude towards talking diplomacy continues in this administration, you might have to wait till another administration,” Thornton said at an event held by National Committee of US-China relations and Shanghai’s American Chamber.
