    If I’m selling bags of dog crap nationwide for $50 a bag and only 6 sell on my Grand Opening, can I blame glitches with the website to my investors?
    OR Maybe people just don’t want a load of crap!

    Just a bump in the road. We have to properly illustrate the pitfalls of a commercial health insurance solution before we can get to a single-payer government social health care solution. The commercial market will not be sustainable in the new economy because of a lack of income people can use to buy insurance. Insurance costs, already supporting government programs by paying the remainder of costs not compensated by government programs, are inflating beyond the means of the market as the cost of medical care to actual paying customers rises to offset losses in treating entitlement patients. Insurance premiums are already taxes to support healthcare entitlements, and the private insurance industry will not survive. This program will allow them to get out with their investments intact without causing further harm to the state of the economy as regards large investors in insurance, which has become as stable as bundled mortgages.

    I learned at the Sears tower that if the antenna on top is a useful, could be working piece of equipment then it is not part of the structure and therefore not counted in the official height. But if it is just structure and it is ornamental and serves no real purpose but to make it bigger it is included.
    Kind of like Obamacare website. They are counting those that clicked yes put it in my cart as part of the “real” numbers. To bad those “real” numbers are way short of what needs to be in order to make this solvent.
    Bring on the adds!
    Obamacare will get you laid!!!!!!!!!

    Needed 7 million. Needed, 2.7 million of that to be young and healthy. Obama also tells us that 85% are happy with what they have and can keep it. You do not have to do anything period. You like it you keep it.
    Tell me again how this is to work?

    More like the space needle on top of a little shack that wasn’t built to code.

    But, but the creator of ACA says it is the insurance companies’ fault, not ACA for all this mess."
    So if you do not get laid becuase you do not have insurance will it be the ACA or the private insurance fault for dumping you?

    Matt, you are being rather generous. The building in real life looks more like a Hooverville shanty with a Tea Bagger pouring gasoline on it and blaming the president for the price of the gasoline.

    During the first month of Romneycare less than 150 were able to sign up, and it succeeded.

    Have you seen the creator of the ACA? I don’t believe you have. All those pages of boilerplate did not come from Obama, nor from your Senators or Representatives. They were submitted for consideration over the years and have been collecting dust until there was sufficient interest in doing something and an unassailable figurehead in place so that criticism could be minimized. It is a sausage. The process of its creation is not really a secret, but you don’t really want to look at it, either.
    The mess is the fault of government. The health care entitlements already in place did not pay full fare. Paying customers paid the difference. Costs were raised to make ends meet. Insurance rates rose accordingly. Underwriter standards became more stringent. All the problems the ACA is purported to fix were caused by government, which acts without care or thought, basing its actions only on what looks good at the moment for the audience at hand. It is Gaga-esque.

    TennCare was a State program, created (on a Federal waiver) to supplant Medicaid with a “Managed Care”program, instead of Medicaid’s “Fee-for-service” – in 1994 by Gov. McWherter. – nothing like Obama/Romney/Heritagecare. Financial problems (due to increasing medical costs and low resident income) necessitated program changes – in 2005 – to counter increasing costs, reducing some benefits and dropping some 190,000 participants…and it’s all Obama’s fault.

    Thanks, it is hard to argue with factual substance, but the haters decided long before the ACA to despise this president.

    I keep reading comments suggesting that the ACA was designed to fail so that Obama could institute a single-payer system. I think that’s crazy — the failure of the ACA would make the idea of any reform less likely — that’s why a lot of Republicans want it to fail. But I do wish it had been possible to pass a better system, single-payer or public/private.

    Pretty obvious that it’s not going to work, Why should young people buy something they do not think they need and, in most cases, cannot afford? The liberals are delusional."
