Winning a war easier than making a website

Dear Editor:

ObamaCare was passed by the House and Senate on March 32, 2010 and signed by the president two days later.

There have been a few problems with the roll out of the ObamaCare website on Oct. 1, 2013.

Fox News anchor Bret Baier read an email from a viewer on his show recently, and I think it bears repeating:

“Putting this into perspective: March 21, 2010 to Oct. 1, 2013 is three years, six months, 10 days. Dec. 7, 1941 to May 8, 1945 is three years, five months, one day. What this means is that in the time we were attacked at Pearl harbor to the day Germany surrender is not enough time for this progressive federal government to build a working webpage. mobilization of millions, building tens of thousands of tanks, planes, jeeps, subs, cruisers, destroyers, torpedoes, millions upon millions of guns, bombs, ammo, etc. Turning the tide in north Africa, invading Italy, D-Day, Battle of the Bulge, Race to Berlin - all while we were also fighting the Japanese in the Pacific! And in that amount of time - this administration can’t build a working webpage.”

I was not able to find the name of the author, but he makes a good point. Oh, yeah, President Roosevelt didn’t authorize the building of the atomic bomb until Oct. 9, 1941, and they got that done too.

Y’all comfortable that ObamaCare will work well for you?
