ThinkProgress editor sees a sign that HealthCare.gov is working

, ,

http://twitter.com/#!/JuddLegum/status/405838943779704833 The news that the U.S. embassy at the Vatican is to be closed has made some Catholics angry at Obama, despite the under-reported fact that it’s merely being moved.  ThinkProgress editor Judd Legum thinks this is a “sign” that Obamacare is doing better. Wow, that’s really reaching. How about this “sign,” Judd? http://twitter.com/#!/SenJohnBarrasso/status/401033950971174912 But […]

Was today’s Obamacare deadline ‘glitch’ just a coincidence? You decide!

,

http://twitter.com/#!/HealthDotGov/status/450636378343084033 As Twitchy reported, today, on what’s supposed to be kinda-sorta the last day for Obamacare enrollment, HealthCare.gov went down. Now, given what we’ve seen so far from the Obama administration, it’s totally reasonable to dismiss this latest “glitch” as a product of gross incompetence. But some tweeters have another theory: http://twitter.com/#!/RightGlockMom/status/450638134724685824 http://twitter.com/#!/b_keyser/status/450638228560048128 Stay tuned? *** […]

CDC director says hospitals ‘must’ comply with CDC’s Ebola guidelines

, , , , ,

http://twitter.com/#!/dont_audit_me/status/517689663520534530 After his disastrous CNN interview yesterday, Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the CDC, posted a confusing tweet in which he asserted that the U.S. shouldn’t isolate countries where Ebola is running rampant.
