Obama gets earful from Senate Democrats about health law woes
Other Republicans complained that Slaughter was supporting a tactic that she once vigorously opposed. That’s true! She fought the “deem and pass” during the Bush administration and lost. Which is precisely when she learned how effective it could be!

But what if it came with thousands of IRS agents, picking through your stool sample? That sounds pretty bad.

The fallout has been exacerbated by the fact that those affected cannot shop easily for insurance alternatives on the malfunctioning website, HealthCare.gov. Obama, joined by Vice President Joe Biden, sat down with 16 Senate Democrats, 15 of them who are up for re-election next year, many of them facing competitive races. One of the senators, Mark Begich of Alaska, said he expressed his frustration at the website during the two-hour session. It has not worked properly since going live on October 1. “It’s absolutely unacceptable in this day and age that the administration can’t deliver on the promises it made to all Americans because of technical problems with a website,” Begich said. Senate Mark Pryor of Arkansas said after the meeting, “The American people are frustrated with the White House’s botched rollout of the Affordable Care Act, and I am too.” Pryor said he wants Obama to hold “individuals in charge” accountable for the launch. The meeting came just before Obama left for Dallas to speak at two fundraisers for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
