Washington, DC—The White House is back-peddling after news broke that the official Affordable Care Act website does not come with Geek Squad protection. It looks like the taxpayers may now be responsible for the extra tech-support. This latest blow to the ACA’s rollout is already being considered a “major oversight” by Washington insiders.
Speaker John Boehner is furious. “Americans are now being asked to shoulder thousands of extra dollars, per hour, just to keep this job-killing-atrocity limping along.” Boehner wanted desperately to add the associated lousy acronym joke (ALAJ) but could not figure it out.
“We did miss the thirty day window to add tech-support cheaply to the ACA,” admitted Obama, “but the patriotic members of Geek Squad have already agreed to work for the AAA rate, which could save the American taxpayer untold gazillions. Now that we paid more, just think of the extra Reward Zone points each American is eligible for over at Best Buy.”
“It’s untold because Obama won’t tell us!” said Boehner. “God forbid our AAA status gets downgraded to AA, we will have to attend those meetings every night without any guarantee of drinkable coffee.”
AM radio Republicans are calling this the worst thing to happen to America since the day The Pentagon forgot to update its antivirus protection.
