    If only this would actually happen. Granted, some of them kind of look like panel 3 all the time. And after all the stuff Ryan said, I hardly think you should say “cooking the books” too loudly.

    Lying cheating stealing and working for those who do, takes a lot out of a normal person.

    well, the gobs and gobs of cash funneled into their pockets helps alleviate the pain….and thanks to the slightly-slanted supreme court, there will be no limit to what corporations can do to buy elections….

    “Gosh, just think how many could have signed up if the website ACTUALLY WORKED?”

    They did get the Federal site working with only an occasional short term blip in it. I haven’t heard of a serious problem in the last couple of months. The same is true of the State websites.

    Yes, Oregon’s is also having serious problems, due to incompetent private sector contractors. Mr offended, of course, does not live in the real universe, so he still thinks it’s last October when things were so beautiful for his kind. He can’t stand the idea that Americans are now able to buy health insurance on a competitive private market!

    Don’t worry, the Republicans and their wing-nut media pals will figure out new conspiracy theories and talking points for the suc… er, people who are easily persuaded.

    “Except for Maryland who just abandoned theirs and are switching to Connecticut’s”

    At least the politicians in Maryland had enough sense to quit beating the dead horse. (Or did the department head just bypass the politicians?)

    7M signed up is that all??? Watever happen to the 43M+ uncovered people that was used to justify Obamacare? At 7M enrolled we could have outright paid for their premiums with commercial insurers for probably something like 50B per year and just be done with it. Just a quick voucher- like expenditure paid directly by the government to the insurance company.

    There still could have been negotiation to get the best bulk pricing and we could have written a law saying that pre-conditions can’t be used to deny coverage. Very clean simple, direct with very little government involvement or control.

    Instead we have or are in the process of standing 100+ new agencies to manage Obamacare. We will probably spend half of that 50B in adminstrative costs before the first dollar is spent on a patient. And worst of all we have opened the door for the government to eventually comlpletely take over healthcare. it will happen if Obamacare isn’t repealed, just watch.

    If only the Republicans weren’t so gungho against it it would have done even better. I’d rather see people covered and live than the old way of them dying for lack of medical care.

    The problems with presidents being Conservative to begin with. They take the conservative route.

    The 7.2 million were just the signees. Adding family members will take the count to 10+ million. And That is just the beginning…
    It needs some slight repairs, but it is here to stay…

    Problem is that only 1/4 of the folks were actually uninsured who signed up which is far different than what Obama stated would happen and different from what the CBO projected…

    Citing ‘Forbes’, quoting an as-yet-UNPUBLISHED study (by Rand Corp.) isn’t much of an unbiased sourcing.

    C’mon, opinions are good as facts, if you’re a Republican.

    The Republicans’ use of Green Eggs and Ham to illustrate the public’s reaction to Obamacare was perfect. They just neglected to read the last few pages, which say:

    You do not like them.
    SO you say.
    Try them! Try them!
    And you may.
    Try them and you may I say.

    Sam!
    If you will let me be,
    I will try them.
    You will see.

    Say!
    I like green eggs and ham!
    I do!! I like them, Sam-I-am!
    And I would eat them in a boat!
    And I would eat them with a goat…
    And I will eat them in the rain.
    And in the dark. And on a train.
    And in a car. And in a tree.
    They are so good so good you see!

    So I will eat them in a box.
    And I will eat them with a fox.
    And I will eat them in a house.
    And I will eat them with a mouse.
    And I will eat them here and there.
    Say! I will eat them ANYWHERE!

    I do so like
    green eggs and ham!
    Thank you!
    Thank you,
    Sam-I-am
