The Obama administration in recent days has finally launched the Spanish version of Healthcare.gov, more than two months later than it was supposed to go up and with just days to spare before everyone’s required to be all signed up.
Um, where’s the outrage?
CAN ANYONE IMAGINE THE OUTPOURING OF FURY IF BUSH DID THIS???
This is no mere screw up. With everything about the Obamacare rollout going wrong, the Obama administration months ago decided to perform emergency triage, leaving some projects for dead while trying salvage whatever else it could. One thing intentionally chucked aside was the Spanish version of Healthcare.gov.
See, that’s the thanks Latinos get for supporting Obama. No immigration reform and no Obamacare website.
Oh, and no economy, but that goes for everyone.
Let’s talk about what would happen of Bush, Romney, Reagan, or someone like that decided the Spanish language website didn’t merit the same attention as the English site.
- Articles in the press about Republicans’ “tin ear” with regard to Hispanics
- Vicious attacks from Democrats – led by people like Barack Obama – accusing the GOP of being the party of rich white people who don’t care about minorities.
- Angry Latino leaders rattling the White House gates and storming the airwaves of MSNBC demanding to know why this act of discrimination occurred.
The website reportedly seems to work okay. Nevertheless, I notice that if you want to research plans, you have to do it in English.
This would, you know, kind of seem to defeat the purpose.
But, heck, Obama is for the people. He must be working on it.
