As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Video || John Oliver Roasts Obamacare Oregon

As some of you may know, after spending about $250 million, Oregon last week decided to junk its Obamacare website and go with the federal Healthcare.gov instead.

The fix, it seems would run through another $78 million – and that’s before before cost run-ups. So for the bargain basement price tag of $4-$6 million, they can join Healthcare.gov, which of course doesn’t work either, but nobody’s talking about that.

John Oliver, the brilliant – but alas, of course, leftwing – comedian who successfully subbed over the summer on The Daily Show for Jon Stewart and who now has his own program on HBO, sunk his teeth into Oregon’s screw up anyway, his sense of horror in this case overwhelming his liberalism.

One note – he’s mistaken in suggesting the $250 million is Oregon money. Actually, it was federal assistance. It’s YOUR money.

A little crude in parts, apologies to those who don’t like.

H/T to one of our readers, who goes by Guillermo Grande.

  1. It was over $300 million. The Republicans have not put up a strong candidate against Dem. governor, John Kitzhaber, and I am afraid he will not be held accountable.

  2. PLEASE tell me that when the Yellowstone Caldera does finally blow, it will take out the crazy liberals/progressives that live in Oregon, Washington, California, and other western areas.

  3. There is some serious fraud taking place with this website business. These IT companies must be howling with laughter all the way to the bank.

    The secta Subud is a special mixture of Java mysticism, magic and the Dharma (originated from India), which is controlled from above, by a theocratic, authoritarian system: The teaching can be interpreted only by the main leader. The Dharma is about the circulation of our world, where the destruction is a natural part of the system, so that is why Shiva can be one of the most important, central God in their religion.
    The Secta is based on ordered relationship hierarchy.
    The secta is led by a very little group of leaders, who hold the most of the economical power of the Subud.
    For an example, they new HQ of the Subud was planned to be built in Jakarta. It would have a special „boat” shape with a huge chimney.
