Healthcare.gov needs a lot of work, but it's fixable

New York (CNNMoney) – If you're able to connect to the Obamacare website and enroll - a big if - healthcare.gov actually isn't the worst website in the world.

I got through after a week of trying, and found signing up for Obamacare to be a fairly straightforward process. (I get insurance through Time Warner, so I didn't actually have to seal the deal).

    Hey, Dutch. I'm shocked to see that CNN allowed your comment. No doubt it slipped past?

    FIFY: We are supposed to whine and moan and groan that the website isn't "working".

    So, tom I, is it your argument that the shutdown cost the nation nothing? Less than $24 billio or what? The plain truth is the Right damaged the nation by their senseless action. They should pay.
    --------------------
    The right wing has paid for the shutdown. They've bought the economy for the next year. The Tea Party owns it now.

    tom I., google these words "hannity obamacare expose."

    By the way, the government regulates private industries all the time. Have you heard of the Food and Drug Administration? Securities and Exchange Commission?

    Of course... without gerrymandering the republicants would win CA handily, I mean with 31% of the people identifying themselves as republicants vs. over 40% identifying themsleves as Democrats (I googled, "democrats gerrymander California.", like you said, I just skipped the rightwingnutjob sites and went to wikipedia) then it is obvious to anyone who can count like cruz this is an obviously red state... even the FAUX polls showed CA was going red for romneylast November.
    AH.... remember, remember, the last Presidential election in November. My cheeks still hurt from grinning after switching over to FAUX and watching the meltdowns :)

    Oh, dear, just saying. Do you not like the option of being able to phone in to apply for Obamacare? Personally, I find it a novel idea in this day and age of technical glitches.

    Indeed. Quite refreshing actually.

    CNN ...please, please. Don't make the mistake you always do. Give us 10 posts on the same subject when there are actually other things going on in the world. One story that I would like you to look into follows:
    Is it true the Air Force has spent 79 billion dollars on the F22 plane and it still doesn't work??? The AFA launch was a complete failure, give us updates once a week, but focus on other things as well. The history of the F22 would be a good start along with other excesses being concealed from the American public.

  10. LOL

    Cal

    GOP Government shutdown cost the American people 24 Billion dollars. That money could have been used fixing the glitches on the website.
    ________________
    More lies as usual from the left, the shutdown was entirely Obama and the senate’s fault, I will say it again, we have 3 branches of government for a REASON, they are suppose to work together, that mean COMPROMISE!!!!!! The people elected the house to be controlled by the GOP, it is Obama's job to work WITH them which he is FAILING miserably at! Obama and the senate did NOT compromise at all, it is entirely on them! Congress did many times, they backed off completely defunding the ACA to delay it for a while but nothing from the Dems!
    And I see everyone on here stating that the conservatives are repeating Fox new lines, I have NEVER been to fox new and that is a FACT so find something else to blame (as usual)!!!

    @CA Independent (aka- republicant)
    "The process right now is a train wreck,"
    Use republicant talking points much... I mean as an 'independent'?
    You fellers aren't fooling anyone, and I find it amusing that ya'll want to support the republicant party in all your posts and rail against the Democrats at every turn, but you blatantly attempt to disassociate yourself from your masters.
    _____________________
    Get a clue, the only post lately have been about the ACA which is obviously a train wrech, you didn't notice me post FOR liberal policies when it comes to gay marriage a few weeks or a month back, amoung others, I am a TRUE independent who thinks for MYSELF, you not so much!!! Convenently overlook them to make yourself feel better, I could careless if you think I am not an independent!!! The ACA is a training wreck even members of YOUR party have said this!
