Here’s the latest chapter in The Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy.

According to Forward Progressives:

There’s a saying that goes, “If you can’t win, cheat like hell” and it’s apparently the motto that the GOP has taken to heart across the country in their latest attempts to sabotage the Affordable Care Act.

What does their newest attempt involve? Creating fake websites with misinformation that look like state insurance exchanges in order to confuse consumers trying to find out what their new insurance options are under Obamacare.

Forward Progressives cites three websites recently shut down by the Kentucky Attorney General’s Office, including kynect101.com, which, according to the Kentucky AG, was “deceptively similar to kynect.ky.gov, Kentucky’s official health insurance exchange website….[S]ome consumers attempting to locate the site through search engines were being deceptively steered to the kynect101.com website instead of kynect.ky.gov, where they were provided false information about their options under the federal Affordable Care Act, including being informed that there were no plans with federal subsidies available to offset a portion of their insurance premiums.”

In a conspiratorial whisper, Forward Progressives blames Republicans. And what passes for proof with this crowd?

“f you were running a sabotage campaign, why not run it in a state with a fully functional health insurance exchange site and (not coincidentally) a GOP Senator who is facing a battle for re-election both from Democrats as well as from within his own party?

So apparently, as this conspiracy theory goes (if I’m following it correctly), because Kentucky is operating one of the only (mostly) functioning state exchanges in the country, Republicans, wishing to protect Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s immense Power to Control Everything have been running around creating bogus websites that would not only give Kentucky residents misinformation about their insurance options under the exchanges, but would also potentially leave their personal data in the hands of hackers. (Which, thank goodness, is totally unlike the actual Democrat-created marketplace website that gives Americans misinformation about their insurance options and leaves their personal data in the hands of hackers.) And Republicans have been doing this “across the country” according to Forward Progressives.

And you thought Bush Derangement Syndrome was bad? Progressives, usually content to wait a few years to start their revisionist history, are now revising on the fly. In their alternative reality, they’ve found a way to blame Republicans for (arguably) the most epic website failure in the history of the internet.

[Note to Sen. McConnell’s campaign: After the site was banned by the Kentucky AG, http://kynect101.com is once again available on Go Daddy for the low, low price of $69.99 plus commission.]

Psychologists have a term for this. It's called 'projection.'

Leftists ALWAYS blame their failures on first sabateurs and then on the wrong people having been in charge.

Wow! POT_KETTLE-BLACK-BLACK-BLACK!

Does ObamaCare cover Psychiatry and anti-psychotic meds?

In the 70s, on court order, we emptied many state asylums. That gave us crime and homeless on the street and Forward Progressive!

Just remember, folks; the state schools are nurturing this schizophrenia.

Speaking as a Republican policy wonk, Republicans aren't smart enough to do what is being charged.

Dumb, Very Dumb. They haven't produced any evidence that Republicans were behind the website and also they are saying it is national but they have only found a site from one state to complain about. Dumb, Very Dumb.

What's really funny here is that the folks creating the foolish fake websites probably fall within the range of the young invincibles who both put Obama in office as well as have to foot the heaviest bill for ObamaCare. Nah, Obama never really cared for the 18 to 34's - he's always seen them as a means to an end - an Alinsky style end, that is.

and these vile little wingnuts call US crazy?

You have to be a special kind of delusional to stay this doggedly fixated on blaming absolutely everybody else but the guys responsible.. and they say liberalism isn't a mental disorder... I personally think it's a cult religion, where success is dependent on who's lying the most, and who victimizes other people the most..

Like Jonestown.. except they haven't filled the koolaid vats yet...

yet...

The progressives sited, would commit mass suicide before admitting they could ever be wrong about the infallibility of their belief system.

Wow, and they are always accusing the Tea Party or conservatives in general of believing in wacky conspiracy plots.

Lol, sabotage is not needed. Obamacare is destroying itself.

The Republican could cease to exist. Democrats could get 505 to 100% of the vote each election and there would still be scammer sites spoofing government websites.

It is common knowledge that if there is a ,gov site there is a .com site scamming it and it has nothing to do with politics. It is simply crime

Look, the easiest way to determine that you are on a scam site is that it actually works well at taking your information at each step of the process without crashing.

I agree. The thing that chucklehead libs don't get is that if you want to undermine Obamacare, set up websites that work all the time and send people to the real health care site. That should do it.
