'Trying to fix Obamacare is like trying to polish a turd'

Yeah, that's what Luke Chung, president and founder of  Virginia-based FMS, a software development firm based in Virginia, said about the Obama administration's all-out efforts to try to repair the Obamacare sign-up site:

Luke Chung, president and founder of FMS, a software development firm based in Virginia, suggested the contractors should not try “to fix something that’s bad.”

“It’s like polishing a turd. Either way, you still have a turd,” Chung said bluntly.

Hard to come up with a more imaginative description of the catastrophic roll-out of Obamacare. The story from the Fiscal Times is here.

Made me laugh my ass off.
