In an apparent response to Obama's speech today that highlighted the lowlights of the ACA exchange "success", this story brings out some different and conflicting views.

A Democrat politician, Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii's ACA exchange complete failure.

Even the Congressional Budget Office in Washington D.C. is starting an investigation into that boondoggle.

Rough times when the President can't seem to keep people on the same page.



Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii's failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people.

On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii's busted Obamacare program.

"This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom.

Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President's home state.



Obama has proclaimed that the Federal Exchange somehow got 8 million sign-ups.

"He" says Democrats should be "Proud".

A-Low-Ha Indeed.

Awww...his Happy Place is not so happy now....

When his home State admits they are "frustrated and embarrassed" ...it's gonna be a tough sell to the rest of the Country.

I got the feeling that Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI), means that the insurance companies and not the constituents the ones that are "embarrassed" by the low show of sign ins, meaning that they need more suckers in order for them to profit.

The weird thing is that Hanabusa is not even a Blue Dog Democrat. Obama is getting a lot of opposition.

Screw Obamacare, Im ready for universal healthcare.

If Obama would of stuck to his principles and pushed for a single payer program, you guys wouldn't have a box to stand on.

You guys go after Obamacare and we are gonna push for universal healthcare and take the private market right out of the equation like we should of done 50 years ago.

Keep it up!

Actually you are RIGHT!

In this case I think it is fair to say Obama owns the whole thing.

The right has been frustrated by Obama-care since day one.

The left has done nothing but defend this piece of crap legislation since day one. Even today people still want to defend Obama-care. You see it all the time even here on ATS.

I think it is about time the left realizes what a bunch of morons they have been. I hope they don't choke on the crow that they will be eating. I'm not sure if Obama-care covers that.

And let's just say that's an accurate figure....which I highly doubt it.
Being as their lies/deceptions are numerous when it comes to Obamacare

How many of them actually are covered at this moment???
Just because they 'signed up' doesn't mean that they have coverage

And there are also figures that range from 7 million to over 10 mil people that were previously insured that have now lost their health ins.
So how does this administration calculate all that into the picture?
They probably don't
