    Not ready for prime time; yes. Is it as serious as “fight the war with the army you’ve got”, even though you didn’t give them the weapons they needed? Just a thought on comparative damage potential.

    “fight the war with the army you’ve got”

    I’ve seen a few articles taking about a ‘tech surge’ to fix Healthcare.gov. An unfortunate choice, given the lack of success the military surges brought.

    That still doesn’t matter in the discussion of whether bringing insurance coverage to those who have none is worthwhile. Maybe I’m out on a limb, but I suspect that most of the people who are opposed to the ACA, are probably also “pro-life”.

    Anyone care to explain why we need to protect the unborn, but let the already born wait for care till they are so sick that they turn up at the ER?

    As a fiscally frugal liberal, it seems like a poor way of managing costs.

    The deadline to sign up is Dec 15 to start insurance Jan 1. I have not tried going past the home page yet.

    You guys are all straining so hard to put lipstick on this pig you’re going to give yourselves hernias. Jon Stewart and his late night cohorts have already beaten it senseless and they are hardly conservative. Obama tried hard for single payer, failed and so he set up ACA as a vehicle to ultimately accomplish that.


    It’s absolutely ridiculous that we don’t already have health care, as far back as Nixon they tried to start a national plan and (shock and surprise) Teddy Kennedy killed the plan. With the absurd amount of money we spend on the military we should have Cadillac health care for everyone.

    What Obama did to delay the penalties for employees wasn’t illegal, of course, and affects almost no one. The ACA is becoming MORE popular, according to four different polls by four different organizations. So you’ll have to try harder to spread more convincing lies, Harley. So far, it’s apparently not working.

    @Uncle Joe

    What most who favor the ACA ignore is that our country is trying to crawl out of the worst recession since The Depression. Making health care available to the uninsured is a noble goal, to put it on the back of the people that have suffered most in this recession not so much. If this “recovery” were anything but anemic, perhaps it would be worth pursing, but the ACA is hitting the middle class while they (we) are down.

    @Radish

    If you have an ant, I assume that you also have an ant farm. Do you get a government subsidy for that?

    Just curious… :)

    The site worked fine for me even though the statistics said not a single person had signed in from Alaska.
    .
    The fully functioning site scrolled smoothly and went where ever I clicked without delay.
    Unfortunately all it wanted was my email address. I wanted to give my name and other information I considered relevant but no, email only and watch for incoming.
    I will not return, WTF?

    I am sure that the Minister of Finance of Nigeria will be in contact with you shortly to get your personal information so your government subsidy can be delivered and you can pay for a health insurance policy afterwards….

    @Rockngolfer

    I find it curious that someone who seems to look for opportunities to refute Republicans, and is going to go to the ACA site by Dec 15 hasn’t done so already, to at least investigate. Maybe you have gone there and realized what a screwed up mess it is and don’t want to say so? Why would you just go to the home page?

  14. Radish

    Radish GoComics PRO Member said, almost 3 years ago

    You would.
