In mocking the rollout of ObamaCare, Senator Mitch McConnell said of the shocking cases of the misidentification of applicants by the system and polling that more Americans believe in the fictional “Bigfoot” than the bumbled rollout of the health care website.
“Unsurprisingly, just 12 percent of Americans think the rollout has gone well,” he said on the Senate floor. “That’s less than the 14 percent of Americans who believe in Bigfoot.”
While much of Washington's attention has been on the website and President Obama's belated efforts to fix it, McConnell cited several cases of the mistreatment of those who have gotten through on Healthcare.gov.
“We hear about visitors being told things like their wife is really their daughter. Or that they have multiple spouses. Or that they’re unable to apply ‘due to current incarceration,’ ” said the Kentucky senator.
“The real tragedy here is that many who’ve succeeded are finding out the product is worse than the website. I mean, the only thing this web site seems to be good at right now is creating punch lines for late-night comedians,” he added.
