    Amazon could do it, Wal-Mart can do it, Bestbuy can do it, why can’t the federal government build a retail site.

    Hello? Varvel? Here are the headlines from today’s WaPo: Deadline for health-site fixes met, officials say. As many as 50,000 applicants can now use HealthCare.gov at the same time, or up to 800,000 visits a day. Just saying. The ‘news’ from Fox ain’t news.

    “I believe that they know exactly what they are trying to do. And that is to divide the United States into two separate camps…”

    You mean like when Romney stated he wasn’t concerned with 47% of Americans? When “conservative” politicians sneer at “west coast liberals” or “east coast elites”? What about ansonia’s comment on the Dec 1st Tom Toles cartoon where she spoke about “red states” being more charitable than “blue states”? Was that not divisive?

    Over the last few days I’ve gone on four web sites that “crashed” or dropped out in the middle of doing something, including gocomics! So the real problem isn’t just the web site’s “exclusive handle on problems”.


    Also, many of those “cancelled” policies are NOT actually “cancelled” they are rather, being CONVERTED to policies that comply with the new law.


    Call be back if getting the web site to work, takes as long as getting out of Iraq did, or just finding actual, functional WMDs in tactical numbers. Talk about misdirection, mistakes, and “contracting is cheaper”.

    tigger: our policy pays for PAP, PSA, and prostate as well as breast exams. While some single folk whine they’re getting ripped off because testing must be part of all policies, ignore the fact they may actually have a spouse someday, and want to stay on the same plan, rate, and company.


    I like what my daughter says about their coverage in New Zealand (although as a nurse, she feels they should cover more “preventative care” down there) where your basics are covered if you get sick or injured. If you want liposuction, or a facelift NOT medically “Necessary”, you pay yourself, or have a supplemental policy to cover those procedures. Yes, they have to pay , gee whiz, TAXES to cover the cost, so it isn’t “free”, but by and large, she’s found the level of care there superior to the hospitals she worked at here in the States.

    “Not what he exactly said or meant.”

    Then kindly explain to me exactly what he meant, assuming you actually know.

    I suspect that hatred clouds intelligence and knowledge…
    .
    And liberals know all about how to hate…

    America is in decline, and it is in decline because of neo-conservative capitalism.
    .
    No… it is in decline because the Federal government has been overspending by a trillion dollars a year for years now.

    How did Amazon, Wal-Mart and Best Buy roll out when they first started?
    .
    There are no laws REQUIRING you to buy from those corporations.

    “There are no laws REQUIRING you to buy from those corporations.”

    There’s no law requiring you to buy your health insurance through the health care exchanges. The mandate is to obtain health insurance, not to obtain it from any one specific location. The insurance exchanges are an attempt to offer an easier way for consumers to comparison shop for the best policy to suit their needs. The hope is that insurance companies will offer more competitive pricing if it’s easier to comparison shop amongst policies. If you get your health insurance through your place of work, Medicare, the VA, or directly from an insurance company, there is no need for you to use the exchange.

    WELL JACK! Obama IS NOT IN CHARGE AT Wal Mart, Best Buy or Amazon, but is a Lib (D) , that is why ! Further more a Liberal Black was given charge, there fore (D)s are not about to admit to his in-eptitude on such a colossal scale.

    It feeds their ego that they ignore color, when it concerns a Liberal. However when a colored person or female is Conservative, Hell hath no fury like a Liberal over a black Supreme Court Justice, Black Presidential Candidate, or Virtuous Sarah Palin. (Their poetess Maya Angelo worked at bordello, and she is okay with them!)
