    West Virginia Democratic Sen. Jay Rockefeller, one of the towering architects of Obamacare, on Tuesday openly criticized program managers for not moving quickly enough to build the system, warning that if it gets off to a bumpy start it will just get worse.

    Decrying the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act as way too complex, he warned the acting Medicare director that Obamacare is "so complicated and if it isn't done right the first time, it will just simply get worse."

    The retiring senator also told Marilyn Tavenner at her Senate Finance Committee confirmation hearing to be administrator of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services that Obamacare rivals tax reform in its capacity to confuse Americans.

    "I believe that the Affordable Care Act is probably the most complex piece of legislation ever passed by the United States Congress. Tax reform obviously has been huge too, but up to this point it is just beyond comprehension," said Rockefeller.

    This is a pattern... leftists pass their programs.
    When they fail... they blame execution... not the idea.
    When its really the idea which sucked.

    Education by union has terrible results we need more money.
    Spending and taxing not creating jobs and a robust economy... spend more and tax more.

    Its just bullshitting the people to get elected.

    When all knew it was a shitty idea from the start.
    When everyone hates democrats in about year... watch them blame Romney Bush and the Republicans. Even though not a single republican voted for it.

    The caveat... providing that dems do not change or delay obamacare.
  5. Obamacare is not the centerpiece of the Obama presidency, being black is the centerpiece. I don't have a problem with that I just wish he left it at that. I only say this because helath insurance afaik was never in the news for the brothers as something that "needed" to be done.

    If health care was a middle class problem, well then it just became a bigger problem.
