Congresswoman Is Confronted By Reality And Proceeds To Pretend It Doesn't Exist

Let's be honest. The rollout of Obamacare's website has been less than awesome. So, naturally, its critics went on the attack. Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) was apparently given some stale talking points to attack it. And when asked questions that invalidated everything she had claimed, she got stuck in some sort of weird cyber-politician loop where she just kept repeating it. Reality seems to have broken her circuitry.

As ThinkProgress found out, even if the site asked for personal medical information, which it doesn't, it's not actually required to follow HIPAA practices. So literally everything she said was wrong, on top of being completely meaningless. Good times.

There are plenty of reasons to be critical of the HealthCare.gov rollout. This, however, is totally pretend.
