I remember how long the lines were when Star Wars came out back in the 70's.  I don't know how well it did but it must have been a flop because there were lines.

ekdikeo4: People fail to understand the difficulty involved with providing enough server capacity for something like that.  Especially considering that within a week or two, you won't need half or more of the capacity that you would've liked to have had at launch.  So, although it looks kind of bad at start, just like with GTA Online, traffic will eventually level out, and things will be "normal".


Nonsense.  We need to scrap the whole thing and start over.  Preferably with a solution that involves poorhouses and debtor's prison.  Because soshulism.

So how's the security been so far on this system. If my herpes/genital warts issue ever becomes public, it could really play havoc with my dating prospects.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: someonelse: Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Silverstaff: TuteTibiImperes: If anything this just shows how wildly popular the ACA is, so while it's inconvenient, it's a good sign.

The Republican Talking Point is that entire storm of traffic to the exchanges was almost entirely the media and Congressional offices, because everyday people are rejecting them en-masse.

Then again, these are the same people who thought Unskewed Polls were the "real" way that the 2012 election would turn out, that global warming is "junk science", and that the Iraqi people would cheer us and celebrate us as liberators and the post-war occupation would be quick and easy.  They aren't known for the best working relationship with facts.

So... How is a minimum wage worker supposed to afford these private health plans?

You're saying the subsidy for 100-400% of the poverty level isn't enough?

I'm not saying anything. I'm asking a question which so far no one has been able to answer.

This is a function of there not being enough computer programmers to make the country function.  That isn't ACA's fault.  It's a failure of schools and colleges to turn out kids with relevant majors.

But keep getting those $200k history degrees, kids!

Fubini: stirfrybry: So you force people to join by threat of penalty, and this you call interest.

The penalty this year is miniscule. Given that, the current load really is a gauge of interest.


1% of income is not miniscule, moron. I guess you don't understand the words "which ever is greater".

So, stealing the tax money to pay for these free houses and prison for the poor from the job creators is what you want?

That sounds like facislamic socialism.


We can use eminent domain to requisition the properties, then have the inmates fix the houses up.  Hell, I could buy up half of Detroit with fifty bucks and have enough left over for a blowjob and a coke.  Call it "urban renewal".
