I gotta admit, the ACA is disappointing.
Love me or hate me. I still love you.

Well, the numbers are out.  How many people signed up on Oct 1? 8 Million? 1 Million? 100 Thousand?

A whopping 6 people!

"We do not have any reliable data around enrollment, which is why we haven't given it to date," Sebelius said."

Imagine an insurance company or any company for that matter not knowing how many customers they have? The efficiency of government is truly amazing.

I agree with all this. But this stuff is meaningless in the long run as to whether this will be good or bad policy. It's just sensationalist news


ETA: if it was unclear I am referring to the technology problems and not the actual costs and coverage

Almost two million people have been BOOTED off of their insurance, and another 14 million are expected to be booted as well. You call that "sensationalist news"? Where the hell are you from?

This is going EXACTLY as the conservatives predicted. If you think this is bad, wait until the site starts working and people start seeing the cost of their new communist insurance plans.

No the fact that only six people signed up the first day. It's ridiculous that they had so many problems with the technology but in the end if the day that will have no effect on the long term outcome of the bill (which I agree is not likely to end well). The fact that that is getting so much press when it really means nothing is sensationalist news.
And no reason to get all upset and use bad language. It is possible to have a civilized conversation about something (especially when you didn't even understand what I said)

I agree he should be civil. But its also possible for you to not say ridiculous things that can only be understood with further clarification. (And then you can also not pretend like you were not so ridiculous, like anyone could understand what you meant)

Sorry. I thought it was clear that I was responding to the posts right before mine. I should have quoted. I apologize.

Serious question: When ObamaCare goes into full effect, will it mean that if someones employer offers coverage (-that they charge lots for), that they will no longer be eligible for JC even if they meet the low income levels?
