PGSTX0534? Our Kafkaesque Obamacare


It's almost painful watching O-bots try to draw a happy face on the rubble of Obamacare. The latest attempt comes in lifting up this Bloomberg story entitled: "People Are Calling This Obamacare Insurance Exchange In Tears."

Awwwwwwe. Makes a nice tweet. It's kinda cute. But it is not typical. If people are crying, they are crying more because of this kind of warm embrace by Big Obama Government as reported in Slate today.

This is real transcript of a person calling the ObamaCare "chat" line

"Thanks for contacting us. My name is PGSTX0534. To protect your privacy, please don't provide any personal information, like Social Security Number, or any other sensitive medical or personal information."

Long story short, the caller never did get a proper answer from operator PGSTX0534. Her question was simply to find out more about her Obamacare options (which she is optimistic about) because the president said if you like your plan you will be able to keep it, but her existing plan will be canceled on Jan. 1. Plus, the Obamacare online program was logging in her information incorrectly and she couldn't stop it from doing it.

Eventually, PGSTX0534 referred the person to another Obamacare line. End of call. Click.

Besides the reality check this anecdote should provide all, how chilling is for Obama chat line operators to use faux names like "PGSTX0534."Jesus, could Team Obama get any more Kafkaesque than that?
