  1. It failed again. What frustrates me is that they make you go through the effort of setting up the account with all your information. Then you select “Set Up Account” and after 5 minutes of spinning-circly-eyes they tell you the system isn’t available at this time.

    If it wasn’t available, why ask me all the questions to set up the account?

  2. Government has no business in business, despite the inflated opinion of self worth certain people who make their living trying to tell people how they should live, and in the case of ACA why and whether they should live.

  3. Many people have compared this, this thing to a visit to the DMV.
    If only.
    No matter how aggravating, idiotic, or dumb the process for renewing one’s driver’s license, you do eventually walk out the door into the sunshine with a legal permit to drive. You don’t have to pay for the same license every month, and you don’t even need to buy a license if you don’t drive.
    The various states have devised sensible plans for renewals by staggering the dates to allow for a somewhat orderly process. Of course, the Feds weren’t aware of such a sensible process whereby sign-ons would be determined by alphabet or state designation. Ohhhh nooooooo, everybody must jump on NOW.

    The decision to avoid easing into a massive overhaul just won’t work, because, well, what if something goes wrong at first, then others won’t want to be part of the new program. Then the fear of a new administration would change or even dismantle something that those in power NOW really want to keep is another reason for this hurry-up and sign up NOW.

    sorry, just ranting here.

    • Construictive ranting…and once some get signed up with these no-name companies, providing heaven knows what coverage (you have to get the operation to know whhat it costs out of pocket), then what? Assuming people can pay the inflated prices for things like in vitro and maternity–etc. And people are losing policies–even Medicare ones–from this!!! The whole thing is self-destructing–the whole health care system and a few month extension won’t help.

    • It’s Pandora’s Box. All these people who have lost insurance, jobs and hours already–do you think their employers are going to reinstate everything? No chance. Obama gave employers an opportunity to dump.

        • Star, that’s out dated thinking. Obamacare addresses the “Hokey Pokey Pregnancy” technique on pgs 1009, 1314-1323 and on pg 1708. “YOU put the left hand in…..and now YOU take the right foot out!” etc etc. So multiple women are involved………….:>)

          • Well, look what the ACA drug in. LOL. Yes–in the new form of expedited pregnancy, multiple women may be involved–this makes it more affordable under the maternity coverage.

  4. Taking over the healthcare industry was of course an idiotic idea and the fact that a website, something that you can assemble and disassemble as desired, is far more simple than the tidal wave of health issues that the government hacks will be charged with deciding. I also think Obummer missed the fact that many “folks” won’t want to shop for health care online like they would for say a soccer ball or camping gear. Many have or will want to meet with a live well informed person to discuss their options and to make reccomendations. Obummer should not have missed the importance of personal interaction, not with a government hack or telemarketer, but with someone you would trust with something as important as your healthcare.

    • Like an insurance agent–I used one to get Medicare set up. They know things. Are they still involved with this stuff? Can they make a commission? They would be better than some ACORN person with a weekend course under his or her belt.

    There are two major political parties in America. I’m a member of the naïve, stupid, and cowardly one. I’m a Republican.

    How stupid is the GOP? They still don’t get it.

    I told them 5 years ago, 2 books ago, a national bestseller ago (“The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide”), and in hundreds of articles and commentaries, that ObamaCare was never meant to help America, or heal the sick, or lower healthcare costs, or lower the debt, or expand the economy.

    The GOP needs to stop calling ObamaCare a “trainwreck.” That means it’s a mistake, or accident. That means it’s a gigantic flop, or failure. It’s NOT.

    Message to the GOP: This isn’t a game. This isn’t tiddly-winks. This is a serious, purposeful attempt to highjack America and destroy capitalism.

    This is a brilliant, cynical, and purposeful attempt to damage the U.S. economy, kill jobs, and bring down capitalism.

    It’s not a failure, it’s Obama’s grand success.

    It’s not a “trainwreck,” ObamaCare is a suicide attack. He wants to hurt us, to bring us to our knees, to capitulate- so we agree under duress to accept big government.

    Obama’s hero and mentor was Saul Alinsky — a radical Marxist intent on destroying capitalism. Alinksky’s stated advice was to call the other guy “a terrorist” to hide your own intentions.

    To scream that the other guy is “ruining America,” while you are the one actually plotting the destruction of America. To claim again and again…in every sentence of every speech…that you are “saving the middle class,” while you are busy wiping out the middle class.

    The GOP is so stupid they can’t see it. There are no mistakes here. This is a planned purposeful attack.

    The tell-tale sign isn’t the disastrous start to ObamaCare. Or the devastating effect the new taxes are having on the economy. Or the death of full-time jobs. Or the overwhelming debt. Or the dramatic increases in health insurance rates. Or the 70% of doctors now thinking of retiring- bringing on a healthcare crisis of unimaginable proportions. Forget all that.

    The real sign that this is a purposeful attack upon capitalism is how many Obama administration members and Democratic Congressmen are openly calling Tea Party Republicans and anyone who wants to stop ObamaCare “terrorists.”

    There’s the clue. Even the clueless GOP should be able to see that.

    They are calling the reasonable people…the patriots…the people who believe in the Constitution … the people who believe exactly what the Founding Fathers believed…the people who want to take power away from corrupt politicians who have put America $17 trillion in debt…terrorists?

    That’s because they are Saul Alinsky-ing the GOP. The people trying to purposely hurt America, capitalism and the middle class…are calling the patriots by a terrible name to fool, confuse and distract the public.

    ObamaCare is a raving, rollicking, fantastic success. Stop calling it a failure. Here is what it was created to do. It is succeeding on all counts:

    1. ObamaCare was intended to bring about the Marxist dream — redistribution of wealth.
    Rich people, small business owners, and the middle class are being robbed, so that the money can be redistributed to poor people (who vote for Democrats).

    Think about it. If you’re rich or middle class, you now have to pay for your own health care costs (at much higher rates) AND 40 million other people’s costs too (through massive tax increases).

    So you’re stuck paying for both bills. You are left broke. Brilliant.

    2. ObamaCare was intended to wipe out the middle class and make them dependent on government.
    Think about it. Even Obama’s IRS predicts that health insurance for a typical American family by 2016 will be $20,000 per year. But how would middle class Americans pay that bill and have anything left for food or housing or living? People that make $40K, or $50K, or $60K can’t possibly hope to spend $20K on health insurance without becoming homeless.

    Bingo. That’s how you make middle class people dependent on government. That’s how you make everyone addicted to government checks. Brilliant.

    3. As a bonus, ObamaCare is intended to kill every decent paying job in the economy, creating only crummy, crappy part-time jobs.
    Why? Just to make sure the middle class is trapped, with no way out. Just to make sure no one has the $20,000 per year to pay for health insurance, thereby guaranteeing they become wards of the state. Brilliant.

    4. ObamaCare is intended to bankrupt small business, and therefore starve donations to the GOP.
    Think about it. Do you know a small business owner? I know hundreds of them. Their rates are being doubled, tripled and quadrupled by ObamaCare.

    Guess who writes 75% of the checks to Republican candidates and conservative causes? Small Business.

    Even if a small business owner manages to survive, he or she certainly can’t write a big check to the GOP anymore. Money is the “mother’s milk” of politics. Without donations, a political party ceases to exist. Bingo.

    That’s the point of ObamaCare. Obama is bankrupting his political opposition and drying up donations to the GOP. Brilliant.

    5. ObamaCare is intended to make the IRS all-powerful.
    It adds thousands of new IRS agents. It puts the IRS in charge of overseeing 15% of the U.S. economy. The IRS has the right because of ObamaCare to snoop into every aspect of your life, to go into your bank accounts, to fine you, to frighten you, to intimidate you. And Obama and his socialist cabal have access to your deepest medical secrets.

    By law your doctor has to ask your sexual history. That information is now in the hands of Obama and the IRS to blackmail GOP candidates into either not running, or supporting bigger government, or leaking the info and ruining your campaign.

    Or have you forgotten the IRS harassed, intimidated and persecuted critics of Obama and conservative groups?

    Now Obama hands the IRS even more power. Big Brother rules our lives. Brilliant.

    6. ObamaCare is intended to unionize 15 million healthcare workers.
    That produces $15 billion in new union dues. That money goes to fund Democratic candidates and socialist causes — thereby guaranteeing Obama’s friends never lose another election, and Obama’s policies keep ruining capitalism and bankrupting business owners long after he’s out of office.

    Message to the GOP: This isn’t a game. This isn’t tiddly-winks. This is a serious, purposeful attempt to highjack America and destroy capitalism.

    This isn’t a trainwreck. It’s purposeful suicide.

    It’s not failing, it’s working exactly according to plan. Obama knows what he’s doing. Stop apologizing and start fighting.

    Oh and one more thing…Conservatives aren’t “terrorists.” We are patriots and saviors. We represent the Constitution and the Founding Fathers. We are the heroes and good guys. Unless you get all this through your thick skulls, America is lost…forever.

    • Anthony,…Beautifully Stated.
      The only hope that we have is to get as many conservatives in congress as we can in 2014.
      If we don’t, we’re toast.
      Obama will complete the destruction (transformation) of this Country and it will take years, probably decades, to recover.

  6. I’m waiting for the WH announcement that G. W. Bush is actually a programming genius and that he and his loyal henchman, Dick Chaney, have hacked into Obamacare repeatedly and are the main reason for its troubles.

    • Good to see you back, Rick! In my opinion, he’s over the Bush blaming. The troops were getting bored. The regime is pulling out the long knives for a new enemy – Tea Party conservatives and the handful of conservative congress members who had the audacity to interrupt the ruling class kabuki dance and stand up for the American people.

      • Happy to be back, Susan. Dear Leader has gotten me enraged enough to slay some dragons here…..Wait. I cannot say “slay”, its violent….”Dragons” would offend animal activists…….Damm……:>)
