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.
Jarrett was a criminal when she ran Chicago housing authority and Obama has been a criminal from birth. In old days when we served justice to our enemy they would be history.
Oren, it seems that Number One, section 2, can easily be used against patriots and freedom.
"Section One: The Constitution of the United States shall be read and interpreted literally. No words or phrases shall be changed or substituted and no part of the Constitution shall be used to expand or increase Federal Power or Authority beyond that EXPRESSLY granted and enumerated in the Constitution. The language of the Constitution shall be interpreted according to the definition of words at the time of their inclusion in the Constitution.
Section Two: Congress shall have, by two thirds vote of both the House of Representatives and the Senate, the power to override individual rulings of the Supreme Court of the United States and/or subordinate Federal Courts. The President shall not have veto authority over Congressional overrides of Federal Court decisions."
That's not all Valerie Jarrett was responsible for. Keep digging and you will find her bloody hands in the mix of just about everything in this country that has gone wrong. Jarrett was schooled in Iran which gives to reason why Obama has yet to stop Iran's nuclear ambitions. Want to know who sent Susan Rice out with the video speech...the queen herself (not Obama, that's another story) Valerie.
So, can we take V. Jarrett and shove her up Obama's butt? Or, should it be the other way around?
No...both ways .. AT THE SAME TIME!!
I think Vallery is giving Obama all he wants and or needs,,,,which is why his wiffie-for-liffie is not at all happy.
Such a shame to see all these crappy politicians all hell bent in bringing down a truly great country
I have never seen so many irrelevant Trolls in one disgusting Communist propaganda filled bunch of Idiots in one photo, like those ass kissing Democrats with no shame who posed for a memory keeping photo of the most Hated boy in America, who has no clue as to what end of a weapon, bullets exit from when fired, but has no problem being a Lying no good Phony, pretending he's a president,Perhaps his place of Birth might want a pos for their leader, but he is not welcome in America.
There is no excuse. The American People allowed this, and the great GOP funded it, so here we are. Don't like it, well, start a Third Party, because, right now, McConnell is obsessed with the Keystone PipeLine, not obstructing Obamacare. Didn't we sight Obamacare as the first priority? We live in a One Party Govt, only 25 people in DC that had enough courage to buck this Group. I say "Thanks" to the 25 Americans, tried and true, wish there were more of you.
