I don’t know if it’s the Abercrombie-Obama affinity or what (Abercrombie claims to have been there when Obama was born) but Abercrombie hired the same, non-bid web builder, CGI as the Obama administration did to design and set up our healthcare exchange, the Hawaii Health Connector and the results have been just as calamitous.
Hat-tip Senator Sam Slom, Hawaii’s lone Republican State Senator of Small Business Hawaii. From Slom:
“Oh-Bummer-care: Taxpayers have spent $200 million to establish the network for the Affordable Care Act in Hawaii – $53 million on just the Hawaii Health Connector web site development and management alone. However, so far, just 257 individuals have secured healthcare through the exchange. Some 113 employers submitted applications though the exchange, but have not yet selected plan.”
And Honolulu Civil Beat reports today that the executive director in charge of implementing the Affordable Care Act in Hawaii, announced Friday that she will be resigning Dec. 6. Can’t take the heat apparently. And they have no one qualified to take the position. Imagine that and welcome to government-run health care.

I take no credit for this, it’s from today’s edition of Smart Business Hawaii (authored by the lone ranger, Sam Slom, Hawaii’s only Republican State Senator) and it’s great:
“Ineptocracy (in-ep-toc’-ra-cy) – a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing; and, where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.”
Does this sound familiar to you? Sadly, it does to me and here’s a good example.
The Obama administration (job creators that they are) wants to put an end to kids working on family farms -their own family’s farms! You can’t make this stuff up. It’s true (hat-tip, The Daily Caller). Maybe Barry and Michelle aren’t talking because they seem to be at odds here.
She wants kids to get off their butts and be active and he wants to turn them to fat, lazy couch-spuds dependent of government hand-outs, no doubt. Drive what little work ethic there is out of today’s youth. Get ’em busy and engaged in more worthy things like Occupy Wall Street maybe. Who knows?
~REMEMBER THIS: The government has NO resources. They produce NOTHING. They can only take from one group and give to others they feel more worthy of their largess (and votes). Push for tax reform.
