Republican takes stab at HealthCare.gov with WH turkey poll

Rep. Andy Harris (R-Md.) took a stab at HealthCare.gov Tuesday in a tweet that questioned why the White House is promoting an online poll asking people to choose this year’s National Thanksgiving Turkey.

President Obama will pardon two turkeys named Caramel and Popcorn on Wednesday, but only one will receive the title of National Thanksgiving Turkey, the White House website says.

Popcorn, the White House tweeted, can sing “Halo” by Beyonce.

Caramel, on the other hand, is a soybean connoisseur.

Harris suggests the White House is seeking to distract attention from the healthcare law, just as Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) suggested in a tweet Saturday evening when the Iran deal was announced.

The Obama administration’s deadline to repair HealthCare.gov for most users is this Saturday.

On Monday, officials said the website won’t be perfect at the beginning of next month.
