Political Fallout: Obamacare Fiasco Threatens Oregon Governor

Comment: Voters are finally finding out what’s in this law, and they’re not happy.

[Oregon Governor] Kitzhaber’s pedestal was already beginning to fracture last October under the weight of the failed Cover Oregon health insurance website. Rather than the triumphant victor, Kitzhaber now finds himself running for re-election as the battered incumbent, on the defensive about Cover Oregon, education and even his fiancee.

Yes We Can!


That [pension] success was quickly overshadowed by the failure of Cover Oregon, the state’s health insurance exchange. The state received $300 million from the federal government, much of which was to be used to build a website that would allow people to shop for health insurance and enroll online. It never worked.

Another $300 million well-spent! (But then honestly which would you rather have for your $300 million, an Ebola vaccine or another failed, cr@ppy government website? A broken website, of course! Hooray Obamacare!)

A fourth term after this disaster? Really? You got some nerve, Kitzhaber.

Oregon voters, just remember, people get the government they deserve.
