    I suppose there are several artistic and satirical reasons Ramirez copied the famous picture of the 1986 Challenger explosion, but it made me sad to see it used this way.

    Yup, rather classless.

    Here is the deal. that Was an out of the blue, very tragic day for heros. A teacher was to go into space. And when it went boom it was my generations “where I was” that day. It had that kind of tragic to it.
    Now anyone could have told you that Obamacare was going to fail. When they drew up the blue prints and bubble gummed together parts of Hillarycare with the liberal dreams and wishes. The other side said it would never fly. When it was passed in the middle of the night so we could finally read it. We knew it would be a failure. When 2000 pages becane 20000 pages of how to, we knew it would be a failure. When it cost 3 trillion and not under a trillion. Just like Paul Ryan said it would before it was passed. But Obama told Mc “I won” We knew it would be a failure.
    The launch is just a long line of failures. And according to Obama , he knew nothing and is mad.
    The only surprise is that the web site failed. Why? One reason is they are hiding the biggest FAIL and LIE from Obama. That this thing would save money. Well after you sign up, if you can, you find out in 46 States your price goes UP! But you would not have to sign up and jump through hoops if the web page worked.

    ^^Agreed.
    This has been a troublesome event in a very important enterprise.
    The sheer scope of nationalized healthcare in a country of 300 million people is staggering. It simple has never been attempted before. No one, even remotely, KNOWS how to do this.
    I submit that with something so involved, massive, and costly, all effort should be made to get it right. Obamacare may be the best thing for the people but starting off the way it has causes concern.
    First it written with zero bi-partisanship…zero. The opposition party was locked out.
    Second, the way it was passed was borderline illegal, pushed thru by the party in power without a single vote from the opposition.
    Third, it survives in a legal limbo due to a convoluted Supreme Court ruling. How can it be a tax when it wasn’t designed, created, written or passed as a tax?
    Fourth, it isn’t being implemented as written, there’s too many waivers and exemptions to count.
    Fifth, this website is a disaster. Even die hard supporters must see that no one should have confidence in putting private info. on this site.
    Sixth, this Admin. insistence that all is well. Please, treat us like adults, all is not even remotely well.
    Seventh, at least half the population doesn’t want anything to do with it.
    Please let us insist that something this important has a solid foundation. Without which we will be forever implementing fix after fix, spending billions we don’t have.
    If this is to be the law of the land, we owe it to future
    generations to get it as right as possible.
    In my very wordy opinion, we are failing miserably.

    An accurate but hardly appropriate parody.

    Besides the fact that you remembering anything. THAT unfortunate episode did not stop the program.. the errors were fixed and the program continued.
    Same with this ACA issue.. it can be fixed and will benefit your country.

    No, it took repeated disasters for them to abandon it.

    I love Ramirez’ cartoons ordinarily, but absolutely agree with most on here: This is not funny and inappropriate.

    To those who actually support Obummercare, the pie-in-the-sky polititians,staffers,lobbiests,beaurocrats,and useful idiot fellow travelers; I must say thee NAY!! This administration(2009-2017) is about to harvest its commuppance in the ’14 elections,which, HOPEFULLY such abomination will be swept away as the trash that they have shown themselvesto be.

    Obamacare is more deadly than the Challenger tragedy.
    There are 300 million Americans at risk with this first step into Socialized Federal Healthcare.

    The worst “glitch” was voters re-electing a proven radical.
