Reid Has Become a McCarthy for our Time

Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz are the leaders of democrats in the house and senate. What sets them apart is their willingness to say anything, no matter how stupid, incoherent, or dishonest, to defend Obama and fellow democrats. It is incredibly revealing that these three characters are in leadership positions. They all come across as disingenuous and not very bright, but they are tireless supporters of the liberal left that has taken over the democrat party.

The Tipping Point We've Dreamed Of?

Indeed.
It is not fair to hold the IT company to blame if they were not given the information they needed early enough in the process and were not allowed sufficient time because of political pressure. Not saying the bidding process wasn't flawed, but apparently the Obama administration was still making critical decisions that would impact basic architecture into the spring of this year. Nobody could get a project of this scale done in that restricted time frame.
Obamacare was designed to fail, but to do so in a way that it destroys the insurance market for healthcare. This will leave single payer as the only viable option. The fines are so low to encourage people not to sign up for care. There is no other logical explanation. If they wanted you to sign up, the fine would be larger than the price of the insurance. This will create a death spiral where the only people signing up on the exchanges will be people who have high medical costs. Healthy people will avoid the exchanges and pay a fee. Companies are already dumping or limiting insurance coverage putting millions more people into this completely unworkable system. Remember, the government is only setting up the exchanges; it is insurance companies signing people up. They can't charge more for people who will cost more. Those costs must be distributed to the healthy and the young. Insurance companies cannot stay in business if they can't attract enough healthy and young people to offset the high cost of people with prior conditions.. The only flaw in the plan is that the abject failure of the website is making people doubt the ability of the federal government to pull off something as critical and vital as running healthcare. But it does not matter to the democrats. They want single payer.
I fear you are wrong. It does not matter how much contradictory evidence emerges. They are making money/gathering power, and the media industrial complex (MIC) is in bed with them. Read the treatment of the new IPCC report in the NYT, CNN, etc. ACC is accepted "science" and those who disagree are paid stooges or besotted right wingers. For the general public who uses the MIC to learn about the world (or kids in school), there will never be an honest discussion of the facts, or the failure of climate models, or the routine violation of scientific best methods. So even though the IPCC admits that its predictions are wrong, it elevated its level of confidence in the theory that man-made CO2 emissions into the atmosphere is the primary cause of climate change. Once you start thinking this way, your mind becomes controlled by the narrative fallacy--you only see confirming evidence and disregard anything that runs contrary to the narrative.
Are you confusing Sebelius with Senator Warren?
Cannot believe that more has not been made of the massive cost overrun of this website that can't handle as much traffic as Netflix. This was supposed to cost $93 million and is now at $634 million. Think about that--it's a website. It is more than 600% over budget. And it doesn't work. Who would choose to entrust their most important and sensitive information to a company that can't get it's website up and running with that much money.

A Double Standard on Deadly Weapons

Possibly the worst reasoned argument I have ever read. The vast majority of people who use guns in the US only do so on a range shooting at targets, not to take a life. The tremendous increase in gun ownership in this country has correlated with a dramatic decrease in crime. What does she mean by a lack of respect for fire arms? I find that when everybody is armed, people are very civil to each other.
