    Many people don’t want it but BY LAW must get it. That is why there was so many people on the website almost no one got results.

    Yea, sure…. The HHS wants 500,000 signed up by 31 October. The federal site has a bit over 36,000 signed up right now according to best estimtes. About double that nationwide if you included state programs.
    People went to the site saw what a nightmare getting a policy was and how horrible the costs were and left.
    Claiming Obamacare is a success on site hits is completely absurd.

    Try again. ONE MILLION have registered. 36,000 have signed up for specific programs.

    “Claiming Obamacare is a success on site hits is completely absurd.”
    Okay, let’s give it a year to develop and then discuss its pluses and minuses.

    The summary from a blog on the WashPost site:
    “It’s much too early to say anything conclusive, or even very predictive, about Obamacare. As Burke and Kamarck note, a lot of what we’re seeing right now are “short-term problems” that will likely be fixed within the first year. But short-term problems can become long-term problems in states where the leadership wants to see Obamacare fail rather than be fixed.
    The result may be that Obamacare doesn’t do anything as simple as succeed or fail. Instead, it vastly improves the health-care systems of the states that wanted to use it to improve their health-care system while collapsing in the states where the leadership did what they could to undermine the law.
    Over time, that could lead to a country with two health-care systems: One, a near-universal system based around Obamacare and centered in blue states; the other, a policy mess based around the rejection of Obamacare in the red states."

    One nation, two health care systems

    @mbraun

    I went to the website and received information. Colorado has it’s own website. Both worked just fine.
