Obamacare Problems And NSA Scandal Take President Obama's Approval Ratings To Record Lows

Barack Obama

Things are not going well for President Barack Obama. The president's approval ratings have dropped to a record low of 39%, due to catastrophic problems with Obamacare, his health care program that is being rejected by the public, the government shutdown and the ever widening NSA Prism scandal. 

The best course of action to take regarding the NSA scandal is to stop the illegal, wholesale spying. It's that simple. It is costing America a fortune and not producing any real results in terms of crime prevention. The prudent choice regarding repairing the damage caused by the government shutdown is to not let it happen again, when current political and budgetary terms expire in a few months.  

It was revealed only 6 people signed up for Obamacare on the first day it launched. An estimated 250 signed up on the second day. Many Americans are complaining about being dropped from their current health insurance plans and being hit with large fees to enroll in Obamacare. The president publicly apologized for this yesterday. 

The website for Obamacare has not been fixed at this time, creating more complications and headaches for members of the public attempting to sign up for health insurance. The Judiciary Report retains the view expressed in a previous column, the government should retain the services of a web team experienced in designing, launching and maintaining websites for health insurance companies. The opposite had been done regarding the Obamacare website and it crashed upon its debut last month. Time to change course and hire people experienced in this particular type of website.
