Way Back In Time...

The Right is all in an uproar about this "horrible train wreck that is Obamacare." Yes, there are some problems with the website not the insurance marketplace itself. President Obama himself is frustrated.....this is not exactly what he had in mind, either.

But let's go back a few years.....say to the rollout of Bush's Medicare Part D.

"States will soon be able to file reimbursement claims for expenses they incurred supplying Medicare recipients with medications during the launch of the federal government’s Medicare Part D drug program in January. As that plan was rolled out, many Medicare recipients found themselves unable to fill their prescriptions at pharmacy counters across the nation. Enrollment confusion and computer glitches were the main sources of the problems."
"President Bush defended the Medicare Part D program, glitches and all, in his weekly radio address this past weekend"
Were there calls for heads to roll? Were there resignations demanded? Was this grand undertaking even on the books?
I'm sure that this will be a topic of discussion on FOX any night now......
