West Wing Week 10/25/13 or, “Saving Money as We Speak”
October 25, 2013 | 3:12 |Public Domain
This week, the President announced his nominee for the next secretary of Homeland Security, spoke on the Affordable Care Act and Immigration Reform, and welcomed the Prime Minister of Pakistan and this year’s Sammy Award winners to the White House. That’s October 18th to October 24th or, “Saving Money as We Speak.”
The White House Week That Was…..
Improving HealthCare.gov: On Monday, President Obama spoke about what’s being done to improve HealthCare.gov. The President said that the best IT experts from both inside and outside the government are working to fix issues with the site, and reminded Americans that there are other ways to apply and enroll for affordable, high-quality health insurance:
Even as we redouble our efforts to get the site working as well as it’s supposed to, we’re also redoubling our efforts to make sure you can still buy the same quality, affordable insurance plans available on the marketplace the old-fashioned way — offline, either over the phone or in person.
The Administration is taking steps to improve the enrollment process while work is underway on HealthCare.gov: call centers now have more staffers to process applications or answer questions, and you can preview plans and prices without filling out an application.
Despite the problems, demand for affordable health insurance is high, President Obama said. thousands of people are signing up and saving money.
People can save money, significant money, by getting insurance that’s being provided through these marketplaces. And we know that the demand is there. People are rushing to see what’s available. And those who have already had a chance to enroll are thrilled with the result.
Check out a video of three Americans who have already signed for affordable health insurance and see what they have to say about their experiences.
Immigration Reform: The President spoke about the need to fix our broken immigration system on Thursday. Earlier this year, the Senate passed a bill with bipartisan support, and President Obama said that it’s up to House Republicans to decide whether reform becomes a reality or not. “This isn’t just the right thing to do, it’s the smart thing to do,” he said.
Securing our borders; modernizing our legal immigration system; providing a pathway to earned, legalized citizenship; growing our economy; strengthening our middle class; reducing our deficits — that’s what common-sense immigration reform will do..
White House Goes Pink: The White House was illuminated pink on Thursday, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. In 2013, more than 230,000 women and 2,000 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer and we show our support for those are committed to the fight against this terrible disease.
Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, insurance companies are restricted from charging women higher costs simply because they are women or because of pre-existing conditions, including breast cancer. Learn more about how the Affordable Care Act benefits women.
Meeting with Prime Minister of Pakistan: The President welcomed Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif of Pakistan to the White House on Wednesday. In their bilateral meeting, the two leaders discussed the economy, security and highlighted the importance of U.S.-Pakistan relations. Read the remarks here.

Lets start with all the dumbass bloggers, media types and TeaTardedRepubliCANT Tea Party assholes.
Healthcare.gov is a muthafuckin website and NOT The Affordable Health Care Law. Because a website has roll out issues and does not work as seamlessly as you want it to work means jack shit when it comes to the magnificence of ObamaCARES.
I HATE LIARS.
ALL you pieces of feces who go around on your blogs on your TV shows and your radio programs saying Barack Hussein Obama & his administration are responsible for ObamaCARES being a failure, train wreck, worse than slavery….you are stupid silly ignorant morons.
The President is not a code writer, he’s not a programmer, he’s not a computer IT tech. He IS The Muthafuckin President Of The United States Of America. He GOT NO TIME to be fixing website glitches caused by 23 million visitors in 3 weeks to the Healthcare.gov website.
Is THAT Crystal for you ignorant racist fools?
It’ll be fixed when it’s fixed, in the mean time, sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up.
The NSA is a SPY agency. The NSA spies. Thats what The NSA does. Did all you dumbass American “journalists” assume The NSA baked cookies? Did you ignorant American citizens imagine The NSA was a cancer charity? Every nation on the globe has a spy organization and that spy organization does what……it SPIES!!!!
Now most nations spy using techniques far below the expertise of The United States, so now they mad to discover, thanks to treasonous traitor Snowden, that America is so much better at spying than they are. If you are stupid enough to think other nations are not spying on the entire world, you need to wake the fuck up and realize everybody spies on everybody else.
Thats what spy agencies do. SPY.
This asshole criminal has been looking for a scandal to attach to the Obama White House for close to 5 years. He has yet to find one single issue that sticks to This Administration.
Does not mean he is slowing down his witch hunt.
There were the Benghazi, NSA, IRS and Fast & Furious scandals perpetrated by this idiot….that went nowhere. EPIC Failure. Now he is investigating a website glitch that has prevented Healthcare.gov from working error free. I don’t know of one single website that works error free. I get SSI & disability and every 1st of the month thru the 3rd of each month, the Social Security Debit Card website is a mess. Glitches up it’s HTML ass.
Now I don’t see Darrell Issa dragging the Social Security Administration before his “monkey court” of a Congressional Oversight Committee.
Rep. Frank Pallone On HIPAA…”Monkey Court”
This Representative made me proud to be an ObamaCRAT!!
I have a suggestion….instead of a fake false Congressional Oversight Committee witch hunt against a website’s glitches, Healthcar.gov ….how about this sainted committee start an oversight hearing on the GOPretenders shutdown of the United States Government for 17 days costing in excess of $24 billion? I’ll be over here ☛☛☛
waiting while somebody answers this question.
OK, I’m Done.

HealthCare.gov, the website where people can browse and buy affordable health insurance, hasn’t worked as smoothly as it was supposed to since it opened on October 1st. President Obama has directed his team to work around the clock to improve the site, and get it running as quickly and efficiently as possible.
But, as President Obama said on Monday, there is still massive demand for health insurance, and thousands of people are still signing up for coverage and saving money. Many who couldn’t afford insurance before, or had been denied care due to a pre-existing condition, are getting covered for the first time.
In fact, a few of the folks who have already signed up for new plans stood behind the President during his remarks on Monday. Afterward, they took a minute to talk with us about their experiences using the new Health Insurance Marketplaces and why they are happy with their new coverage.
Check out the video above and see what Zohre, Janice, and David had to say.

A MUST READ:
There’s a lot of misinformation out there. For too long, too many hard working Americans paid the price for policies that handed free rein to insurance companies. President Obama’s health reform law gives hard working families the security they deserve. The Affordable Care Act holds insurance companies accountable, lowers health care costs, gives Americans more freedom and control in their health care choices and improves the quality of care.
