Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

I really don't like the looks of this.  I really don't.  More information that comes out on Obamacare rollout, I really don't care how many people signed up.  We HAVE to get to the bottom of this!
Well after Darrell Issa just got royally chastised over the Benghazi report, sad to say, he's still not learning.

Based on the following statement, he's moving back to another issue regarding Obamacare.  This time, he's issued a statement on the departure of Michelle Snyder, the Healthcare.gov website's Chief Operating Officer:


December 30, 2013

WASHINGTON – House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) today released the following statement on Michelle Snyder’s departure from Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) where she was the Chief Operating Officer:

“Documents and interviews indicate Michelle Snyder’s involvement in bypassing the recommendation of CMS’ top security expert who recommended delaying the launch of HealthCare.gov after independent testers raised concern about serious vulnerabilities from a lack of adequate security testing. Americans seeking health insurance are left to shoulder the risk of a website that’s still an all-around work in progress because of the cult like commitment officials had to the arbitrary goal of launching on October 1.”


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

And of course, naturally, Darrell Issa continues on with his partisan antics like he usually does, mainly because campaign contributions tell him to do so:


It's still unclear who exactly is signing up, and the administration needs the young and healthy to enroll in large numbers in order to support the system. Also, there are concerns that Americans could experience complications trying to use their new insurance when it kicks in, a point Republicans are eager to make

“Obamacare is a reality,” said House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif. Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press. “Unfortunately, it's a failed program that is taking a less than perfect health care system from the standpoint of cost and making it worse.”

Of course, we know the Affordable Health Care Act is a reality.  We don't need Issa of all people to tell him it is.  Perhaps it wouldn't be so failed of a program if Issa and his team would spend more time doing their job which is to improve healthcare by introducing new pieces of legislation to strengthen it?  After all, if you dislike a law so much and complain it's going to raise the costs so much, to you absolutely have to repeal it?  Why not improve the law to address the cost issues?

Just think of the coincidence:  The government shutdown happened exactly when the Healthcare.gov rollout began, October 1, 2013.  How can it not be a strategic part on the Republican Party's end, with Darrell Issa and others, to keep the government shutdown option open as a means of making their case about Obamacare being bad?

Oh but of course, Mr. Investigator himself (or perhaps is staff) is probably still thinking of campaign contributions.  How else can it explain why he continues to send these endless partisan Tweets?

If you're tired of Darrell Issa and want more information on his Democratic challenger, Dave Peiser, and voter registration statistics numbers of CA-49, links are below:
