The technical problems with the website used for the rollout of the Affordable Care Act have provided yet another opportunity for a political party to do what each does best — waste time and grandstand.

This time, Republicans want accountability; the pound of flesh they want is Kathleen Sebelius to be fired because the rollout is a fiasco.

Republicans don’t seem to remember when we were told that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction.

No one was fired or held accountable. Incredibly, the result of that fiasco was that the U.S. started a war.

Thousands of real human beings died, and many thousands more were maimed.

I am not aware of any dead bodies as a result of technical issues with the Affordable Care Act website.

The politicians want accountability. Look in the mirror!
