Cover Oregon: “SAUVE QUI PEUT! HOME! HOME! PICKUP AND HOME!” #obamacare

“Any beacon you can hear. Six minutes! All hands, save yourselves, pick up your mates. Home on any beacon! Sauve qui* -”

I am not exaggerating:

Oregon’s troubled health insurance exchange began robocalling applicants Friday, warning them that if they don’t receive enrollment confirmation by Monday, they should seek coverage elsewhere for Jan. 1.

“If you haven’t heard from us by Dec. 23, it is unlikely your application will be processed for Jan. 1 insurance coverage,” a woman’s voice on the pre-recorded call from Cover Oregon says. “If you want to be sure you have insurance coverage starting Jan. 1, you have other options.”

…Heckuva job, John Kitzhaber. Heck of a job.

    Obamacare was “Operation Bughouse” from the beginning…

    Bonus for quoting from my favorite philosophy book.

    And the Oregon health care site is so pretty when it burns.

    Random query, polling the collective.
    .
    In a short doggerel verse explicitly referencing Starship Troopers, is “mobile infantry/on the hop” an acceptable replacement for “mobile infantry/on the bounce”?

    (Short explanation… Sometime around the end of the schoolyear, I’m considering putting out a bunch of burma shave-style signs around local roads referencing various stories that I want to encourage youngsters to read. The project has to wait until finances aren’t so tight. The cost of posts adds up quickly.)
