    I agree that there should be a recall — and then a single-payer system.

    Who needs facts? We’ll just draw Obama looking like an ugly clown over and over!

    I have said many times that this was designed to fail. It won’t be too long before our esteemed president announces that the all problems lie with the evil, greedy, uncaring insurance companies and only the government can be trusted to take over all medical care. Doctors will be government employees and hospitals will take direction from the government.

    The government will set payment rates for all medically related “benefits.” Good luck everyone.

    Gee. Why did my Company have to give the ACA a million dollars this year?
    And my Company supplied healthcare fees tripled.
    Got an answer. My HR Dept. said they were not allowed to discuss it. For fear of going to jail.

    Sign-ups also mean “those who put their info in the website.” Not necessarily those who clicked buy or worse, paid. Hard to pay when the back-end is still missing that key element. But don’t worry about the poor insurance companies, it’s written into the law the tax payers will bail them out no matter the cause, albeit bad implementation, bad management or malfeasance.

    CCNJ’s say “6 million lost their policies…”
    You made that up.

    That number is quite possible, if eventually not larger, Little Sister. Some insurance companies have discontinued individual coverage policies in some states and are offering only group policies in those states. Also, the problem for individuals having their policies canceled is quite real. “Canceled” is probably not the right word, though, since insurance companies could no longer continue offering some types of policies since they didn’t include some PPACA requirements (such as mental health care). “Discontinued” would probably be a more accurate term.

    “- 4 million sign-ups and counting, no whining will change that”.

    And how many are paying.

    I have alway thought that Obama has something to gain from all of this ACA mess. Like maybe a big fat kick back for his retirement. I think he is going to get tens of millions of not hundreds of million of dollars in kick back money from ACA after he leaves office.

    It is not a success for those aged 60-65 who lose their coverage due to spousal drops, retirement or cancelled plans. I know. I am a victim. My cost for a private policy under CA Care has doubled since 2009. It is not affordable.

    If you cannot trust a Nobel Laureate who is a chaired professor at one of America’s top universities…

    As I sit here in my vulpine retreat in a place far from liberal distractions, I can assure you that America’s top Universities will let almost any crackpot become a chaired Professor…. or at least a stool.

    if the made the mistake of signing away their identities on healthcare.gov and are deemed eligible for medicaid, they are not allowed any other option but medicaid.

    No one is being forced to go on Medicaid, but people eligible for Medicaid can’t get a subsidy for private insurance. They could buy still buy insurance without the subsidy, but if they were Real American Patriots, they’d go uninsured, just like they always have.

    Obviously, you’re making too much money to qualify for a subsidy. Don’t worry! NeoConman & I are working on fixing that.

    Why did my Company have to give the ACA a million dollars this year?

    The ACA delayed employer mandates, so that million couldn’t have gone to the ACA. I can only tell you that the money may or may not wind up in my Executive Bonus/PAC.
