People are complaining about a $25 plan with a $1500 deductible. Unbelievable.

Drop me a line when that's available in NYC...

"It cost the federal government more than $300 million for outside contractors to set up the Obamacare website that has had so much trouble in its first three weeks of operation."

$300 million to build a website?

Considering how much the government could have spent, I think it is a good deal.

Scary article. Probably overstated but scary nonetheless.

In Canada, the government basically pays for schooling for doctors and it's VERY competitive to get in. A lot of people go to the states because they can't get in in Canada. That would never happen in the states but it would solve one of the issues

Still, the shortage of doctors in Canada is scary...

But Obama said the ACA is good!
