Obamacare Operator Erling Davis Fired After Taking Call From Hannity … Operator Says No Really Likes Obamacare (Update: Hannity To Pay Her a Year’s Salary)
Looks like some one has finally been fired for Obamacare and its not HHS Sec. Sebelius. Obamacare operator fired for being honest with Conservative talk show host Sean Hannity …
Sean Hannity called in to the Obamacare call center and after several minutes of waiting got through to an Obamacare operator. Hannity spoke to Erling Davis for nearly 10 minutes about Obamacare and got some surprisingly honest answers. When asked by Hannity whether she had got anybody on the phone that really likes Obamacare, she responded, “Umm, no, not really”. It looks like there is consequences in the United States for “free speech” as for her efforts, operator Erling Davis was fired for her actions.
It is actually phenomenal to think that Erling was the only person fired after all the glitches, tech problems and failures of the Obamacare website. Rather unreal if you think about it, isn’t it? So thanks to Obamacare, another person has been added to the unemployment line.
HANNITY: They’re really telling you to tell us to check back in on the website in off-hours. Does that mean that I should go on at like three in the morning?
OPERATOR: It was saying early in the morning and late at night, but some people say they do that and still can’t get in.
HANNITY: So people are reporting to you the real deal?
OPERATOR: Yes sir, they are.
HANNITY: Have you ever got anybody that really likes it yet?
OPERATOR: Umm, no, not really.
Tonight Sean Hannity had Erline Davis on his television program.
He offered her a check to cover her salary for a year.
He also set up a hotline to help Earline find another job.

CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo Says ObamaCare Forcing America to Become a Part-Time Employment Country as Businesses Shift to Part-Time Workers
The heck with the Obamacare website glitches, Obamacare has much worse consequences on America and Americans … Obamacare is a full-time job killer.
CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo said on ‘Meet the Press’ on Sunday that “ObamaCare is forcing businesses to shift to part-time workers.” She went on to say that America was “becoming something of a part-time employment country.” However, no one in the MSM wants to address the fact that Obama’s signature piece of legislation is causing American workers to lose their full-time jobs. Isn’t that special, in order for a small minority of people to have access to insurance, all Americans are forced to buy insurance or else pay a tax, and workers are losing money in their pay checks as businesses shift to a part-time work model. Thanks Barack Obama.
Intentional or irony … Obama’s signature piece of legislation kills FT jobs and affects the middle class, the very people he claims to be for? Is it any wonder why Obama is the worst jobs president in modern times.
Maria Bartiromo is sadly100% correct. Check out Zero Hedge, where of the 953,000 jobs created in 2013, 77%, or 731,000 are part-time ones. Many businesses are are now only hiring PT employees in order to avoid Obamacare or are shifting those that were full-time to part-time. Who didn’t see that coming?
Obamacare (Healthcare.gov) Website Violates Licensing Agreement for Copyrighted Software from British Company SpryMedia
What a joke, You just can’t make this stuff up …
The Weekly Standard is reporting that the Obamacare webite, Healthcare.gov, violates licensing agreement for copyrighted software and uses a copyrighted web script for a data function for the site. UNREAL. As if the roll out of Obamacare has not been enough of an epic failure, now this. They had over 3 years and hundreds of millions of dollars and this is what was produced. Way to go Barack. I am pretty sure that violating copyrighted software and scripts is not considered a glitch. It is reported that SpryMedia said it was “extremely disappointed” to see the code used without the copyright notice, and that they’ll be looking into the issue with HHS.
Healthcare.gov, the federal government’s Obamacare website, has been under heavy criticism from friend and foe alike during its first two weeks of open enrollment. Repeated errors and delays have prevented many users from even establishing an account, and outside web designers have roundly panned the structure and coding of the site as amateurish and sloppy. The latest indication of the haphazard way in which Healthcare.gov was developed is the uncredited use of a copyrighted web script for a data function used by the site, a violation of the licensing agreement for the software.
The script in question is called DataTables, a very long and complex piece of website software used for formatting and presenting data. DataTables was developed by a British company called SpryMedia which licenses the open-source software freely to anyone who complies with the licensing agreement. A note at the bottom of the DataTables.net website says: “DataTables designed and created by SpryMedia © 2008-2013.” The company explains the license for using the software on that website [emphasis added]:
The copyright is in the opening lines of the software, an example of which can be found on SpryMedia’s website, but TWS says it’s not anywhere in Healthcare.gov’s code:
Obamacare Website (Healthcare.gov) is Such A Colossal Failure that Teal Media, Firm That Designed It, Has Removed All Reference To Its Work on the Site
Wanna Get Away … It appears that Teal Media wants to.
As reported at BuzzFeed, Teal Media, a web design firm founded by a former member of the 2008 Obama campaign has removed all information regarding its work on the Obamacare exchange website. It was only just a few days ago that it was touting its role in helping to create Healthcare.gov. Imagine that? With all the negative attention and epic failure the role out of the Obamacare web page has been, who would want their name on this disaster?
Visit the website of Michigan-based design firm Teal Media today and you’d never know designers there helped create HealthCare.gov, the troubled online portal for Obamacare.
Just a few days ago, the site looked very different. Teal Media’s homepage featured its work on Obamacare prominently, placing a link to the firm’s work on one of the most well-known websites in America front and center. Now that link, as well as the page devoted to Teal’s work on HealthCare.gov, have been removed.
Teal Media doesn’t seem interested in talking about its work on HealthCare.gov. A woman who answered the phone at the company’s headquarters immediately referred BuzzFeed to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) at the Department of Health And Human Services (HHS) before a single question was asked. CMS is listed as Teal’s client on the firm’s now-erased HealthCare.gov page.
As Weasel Zippers opines, Barack Obama probably wishes that the focus was still on the government shutdown rather than the train wreck that is Obamacare.
Update I: Teal Media put Heathcare.Gov references back on their website following the report by BuzzFeed.
Former Obama White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs Says Obamacare Rollout “Excruciatingly Embarrassing”
OUCH, THIS ONE IS GOING TO LEAVE A MARK …
Former Obama White House Press Secretary and top aid Robert Gibbs calls Obamacare roll-out “Excruciatingly Embarrassing!!!” Gibbs stated on MSNBC’s Now that “This was bungled badly. This is not a server problem [where] just too many people came to the website. This is a website architecture problem.” Gibbs also went on to say that individuals need to be fired. How bad is it when an individual like Gibbs is coming out and stating the obvious as Barack Obama and current WH press secretary Carney, just call it glitchy?
From The Blaze:
“This is excruciatingly embarrassing for the White House and for the Department of Health and Human Services,” Gibbs said on MSNBC Monday. “This was bungled badly. This is not a server problem [where] just too many people came to the website. This is a website architecture problem.”
Repeating the “excruciatingly embarrassing” charge, Gibbs said it’s “not fatal because there are still many weeks and days to go before the enrollment period closes at the end of March.”
He said buying health care through the exchanges is different from a one-time music purchase on iTunes, but that “if they don’t get these glitches figured out fast, people aren’t going to come back” to compare costs and make their final decisions.
“I hope they’re working day and night to get this done and when they get it fixed I hope they fire some people that were in charge,” Gibbs said. “We knew there were going to be some glitches, right? But these are glitches that go, quite frankly, beyond the pale of what should be expected.”
So what part about the Second Amendment and the following of US laws doesn’t Starbucks quite get?
Starbucks Corp, the overpriced coffee chain is asking their US customers who have “open carry” or “conceal carry” permits to leave their guns at home. Starbucks claim that they did not want to get involved in the open carry gun debate, yet they just did. Does Starbucks serve waffles? When a company sides with one side of the debate and restricts the other, that is the definition of taking a side. Just curious, how would you know whether I have carrying or not carrying a concealed weapon while ordering a Pumpkin Spice Latte? The Starbucks’ request does not apply to authorized law enforcement personnel.
A note to Starbucks, none of the mass shootings, especially the one in Newtown, CT was done by an individual who legally could carry a fire arm.Those who believe in the Second Amendment can always chose not to frequent Starbucks following this decision. I guess not spending money I over-priced coffee will allow for the purchase of more ammunition.
Coffee chain Starbucks Corp has asked U.S. customers to leave their guns at home after being dragged into an increasingly fractious debate over U.S. gun rights in the wake of multiple mass shootings.
While many U.S. restaurant chains and retailers do not allow firearms on their properties, Starbucks’ policy had been to default to local gun laws, including “open carry” regulations in many U.S. states that allow people to bring guns into stores.
In August, this led gun-rights advocates to hold a national “Starbucks Appreciation Day” to thank the firm for its stance, pulling the company deeper into the fierce political fight.
Locations for Starbucks Appreciation Day events included Newtown, Connecticut, where 20 children and six adults were shot dead in an elementary school in December. Starbucks closed that shop before the event was scheduled to begin.
Chief Executive Howard Schultz said in an open letter to customers late Tuesday that Starbucks Appreciation Day events “disingenuously portray Starbucks as a champion of ‘open carry.’ To be clear: we do not want these events in our stores.”
I wonder how many Starbucks employees would be thankful if some one legally carrying a gun actually saved them during a commission of a crime? All Starbucks just accomplished was making themselves a gun-free zone and susceptible to future crime by those who do not follow the law.
Another Defeat for Obama … Larry Summers Withdraws Name from Consideration as Chairman of the Federal Reserve
Larry Summers, Barack Obama’s preferred choice to head the Federal Reserve withdraws his name for consideration for Fed chair. Former U.S. Treasury Secretary and Harvard President Summers called President Obama to announce the withdrawn his name for consideration to succeed Ben Bernanke as Federal Reserve chairman. Obama accepted his resignation.
For Lawrence H. Summers, President Obama’s preferred candidate to lead the Federal Reserve, the messy debate over a military attack in Syria was the final sign.
After weeks of opposition to his candidacy from an array of progressives, the president’s inability to rally Congressional Democrats on Syria persuaded Mr. Summers that his most important audience — the Senate, which must confirm a Fed chairman — probably could not be won over.
He concluded that the White House was also unlikely to overcome opposition to his candidacy from many of the same Democrats, who view him as an opponent of stronger financial regulation, according to supporters who insisted on anonymity to describe confidential conversations with him.
“Clearly Obama couldn’t bring his own most enthusiastic supporters to back him on an issue of national security,” one supporter said. “How was he going to corral them for Larry?”
And like with a military strike on Syria, it was not the GOP that doomed Summers with his chances to become FED chair, it was the Democrat opposition. Summers got no love from Democrats and even less support from Obama who failed to convince Congress that Summers should be the next Fed chair.
Larry Summers on Sunday withdrew his name from consideration as chairman of the Federal Reserve, a defeat for President Barack Obama — who could not convince members of his own party to shelve their opposition to his former top economic adviser.
Summers, who previously served as Treasury secretary in the Clinton administration, director of the National Economic Council and president of Harvard, notified President Barack Obama of his decision with a phone call Sunday morning
Thanks Obamacare … UPS and UVA Ending Spousal Insurance Coverage … What Happened to Obama’s Promise that You Can Keep Your Insurance If You Want To
MISLEADER IN CHIEF: THANKS TO OBAMACARE, UPS AND UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA ENDING SPOUSAL INSURANCE COVERAGE …
Remember when President Barack Obama promised Americans that under Obamacare, you can keep your insurance coverage if you like it? Well guess what, HE LIED! As reported at the NY Times, United Parcel Service has told its employees that it will stop providing health care coverage to their spouses who can obtain coverage through their own employer. Thus, spouses who have a lesser coverage in their employment, but are provided heath care will no longer be able to be covered under the better UPS health care insurance plan. This is happening in many other companies and as it turns out Universities as well. UPS and UVA are dropping spousal coverage and citing increased health care costs. Wait, wasn’t Obamacare supposed to cut health care costs as well? I guess it all depends on what “nobody” is?
THE OBAMA LIES: “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan, PERIOD! No one will take it away, no matter what.”
United Parcel Service has told its white-collar employees that it will stop providing health care coverage to their spouses who can obtain coverage through their own employers, joining an increasing number of companies that are restricting or eliminating spousal health benefits.
U.P.S., the world’s largest package delivery company, said its decision was prompted in part by “costs associated with” the federal health care law that is commonly called Obamacare. Several health care experts, however, said they believed the company was motivated by a desire to hold down health care costs, rather than because of cost increases under the law.
In a memo addressed to employees, U.P.S. said, “Limiting plan eligibility is one way to manage ongoing health care costs, now and into the future, so that we can continue to provide affordable coverage for our employees.”
The memo also estimated that about 33,000 spouses were covered under its insurance plan for white-collar employees and that “about 15,000 of these would have health care coverage available through their own employers.”
The University of Virginia will no longer provide insurance coverage to the working spouses of its employees, a move university officials hope will save “millions of dollars.”
Starting Jan. 1, employee spouses who have health insurance coverage under their employers cannot get coverage under UVa’s plan. If the spouse is covered under a plan defined by the Affordable Care Act as “minimum value” and “affordable,” he or she will no longer be eligible.
Cutting off working spouses with access to health insurance is part of the university’s plan to save money in the long-term, said UVa spokesman McGregor McCance.
