Diogenes: DNTRFA yet, but generally speaking, that sort of premature gloating is unwise.When have this GOP's attacks been reality based or honest? For example: BoehnerAnd don't jinx the ACA. Unintended consequences and all.
SlothB77: When Healthcare.gov actually starts workingThat's a big 'IF'. There is going to be a wave a people who lost their insurance and won't have insurance on Jan 1st and will be entering 2014 uncovered that want to be covered. And some of them are going to get hurt or sick and have to face big health care expenses. Democrats will pay the political price for that.And when the site is working, more people will see just how expensive their new plans will be and how limited their networks of doctors will be. The fully functional web site will just shed a light on the other parts of the bill that are also unsavory.And let's not forget people have to enter a lot of personal data into the site and its dangerous lack of security in protecting that information.

Dancin_In_Anson: Stay the course! Keep the faith!
mrshowrules: Dancin_In_Anson: Stay the course! Keep the faith!How would you define success/failure of Obamacare?
jbc: Is that really a choice they face? The GOP would choose to give their relatives Morgellons if they could make a buck or two off it.

Cat Food Sandwiches: I'm waiting for the people who can't even obtain a picture ID to log on and select their heatlthcare plan.
dwrash: It looks like the Spin Doctors have gotten back together!<b>The people that the ACA need the most to sign up aren't</b>.. and they will probably just pay the penalty for the first couple years.. in the mean time, premiums are going to rise disproportionately.We should have just gone with single payer... and the left should be rooting for the ACA to fail so that single payer can come to its rescue.
firefly212: Cat Food Sandwiches: I'm waiting for the people who can't even obtain a picture ID to log on and select their heatlthcare plan.Having got a picture ID a few days ago, I can tell you unequivocally that signing up for healthcare was far easier.
Bareefer Obonghit: I can count to potato!
mrshowrules: Dancin_In_Anson: Stay the course! Keep the faith!How would you define success/failure...
Dancin_In_Anson: Bareefer Obonghit: I can count to potato!Of course you can, Pumpkin. We're all so proud of you.
Stile4aly: I originally tried signing on to Healthcare.gov in early October and had the same problems everyone described. I ended up borking my email address and decided it would be best to wait. The other night, I got an email asking me to try again so I did. After about 20 minutes, I completed the application and got to the point of choosing a healthcare plan. I'm currently insured by my employer, so this was an exercise in curiosity more than anything else, but I found I could purchase a plan equivalent to what my employer offers me for about $50 more per month out of pocket (which I'm guessing is a lot less than my employer contributes to my plan). If I dropped to a silver plan, I would save about $50 a month.Healthcare.gov is working. You guys have lashed yourselves to your white whale, and it's about to sound.
Dancin_In_Anson: If it reduces cost, red tape, regulation, size of government, etc etc etc it's a success.
TheShavingofOccam123: The GOP only worries about rich people and their corporations. The party could care less whether their members are healthy or not as long as they are brainwashed idiots who vote against their own benefit for the benefit of others better off than they will ever be.
Headso: Dancin_In_Anson: If it reduces cost, red tape, regulation, size of government, etc etc etc it's a success.what if it slows healthcare spending to their lowest levels but increases regulation on the healthcare companies?
Lionel Mandrake: Dancin_In_Anson: Bareefer Obonghit: I can count to potato!Of course you can, Pumpkin. We're all so proud of you.Is this your new shtick? Making up what people say so you can cleverly retort?How sad.
