I'll give the guy credit for trying to fix his broken promise, but it doesn't mean much honestly. It's not like they are going to go back and change a bill once it's passed the House and Senate just because the people don't like it.

The sad part is it took them five months of not fulfilling that promise to come out and try to claim they haven't because of "unexpected technical hurdles". As much money as the government wastes every month I think they could have afforded to pay someone to add a link on a web page a whopping 24 times so far.
