No tengo healthcare hombre!

Dear Obamacare website, (Spanish edition),

“Barry voté por usted y soy la razón principal está en el consultorio por lo que ¿por qué estás haciendo tan difícil para mí recibir la atención médica gratuita que me prometiste?”

This is a question not only being asked by millions of English speaking citizens across the country but also it has recently come to light that this administrations bungling of technology spans numerous languages and socioeconomic classes. To loosely translate this in my best field level Spanglish what I’m trying to say is; “Barry, why are you making it so difficult for me to receive my free taxpayer funded healthcare?!” CuidadoDeSalud.gov is the Spanish alternative to the now famous federal healthcare website that has failed miserably since it launched months ago. From clicking on forms that come up in English rather than Spanish to some of the language translation on the site reading like my first penmanship attempt after a Rosetta Stone lesson the site equals its English counterpart in its ineptitude. By garnering 75% of the Hispanic vote both legal and illegal in the 2012 election you would think you would have catered to those 24 million plus voters who helped catapult you to another four years in office. Now as a future congressman in waiting with a chief of staff already in place to put a spin on the numerous transgressions that I have taking part in thus far in life I’m going to say that these problems are not what Barry and the left was looking for when they steered this ship towards disaster almost 6 years ago. In California alone there are over 4.3 million people who speak Spanish exclusively in their household and of that number only 5,500 have signed up through the last recorded date at the end of November for the federal healthcare system. That’s bumping at just around a 0.0012% success rate, which is only considered victorious if you’re a father waiting for a paternity test on the Maury Povich Show. Whether you like the new healthcare system or hate it we are all Americans and it is in place and there is no way it is going to be repealed or stopped anytime soon. So the question I ask is why wasn’t it done right the first time instead of the numerous failures that have permeated so far thus costing taxpayers millions more dollars of our livelihood? Government has once again proven it’s not in the business of “business”. Put these decisions and choices in the hands of people who know how to run a sustainable enterprise and go back to doing what you do best which if you in the audience can answer that should think about playing the lottery tonight. So when the election season is up on us in the future my Spanish speaking friends remember this slogan;  “Vota Marcus Monroe él traerá imperio vida para todos nosotros!” …..It’s winning in any language.

PS. Hello peeps on this unseasonably warm day in January. I know it’s been a while since we last talked but I’m back and hope to keep the smiles coming in 2014. Keep sharing and remember……Have heart, have money and have hustle.
