Rough Obamacare rollout: 4 reasons why

Washington (CNN) - It seems like a long time since Vice President Joe Biden whispered a bit too loudly to President Barack Obama that his imminent signing of the 2010 Affordable Care Act was "a big f-ing deal."

Biden was right - it was big then, and is even bigger more than three years later. However, most of the talk today is about problems with Obama's signature health care reforms that are emboldening hyper-partisan critics on the political right and raising public doubts about the system's viability.

    Right, CNN, it's all about what Republicans have been saying not what they've been actually DOING across the country. This article is a wet turd gloss-over of every single piece of legislation across the country that the GOP/Teatrolls have enacted in an attempt to break the ACA and hamper its implementation. It's everything from legislating that the governor cannot accept the Medicaid expansion to refusal to create a state based exchange to enacting laws that repeal the state insurance commissioner's power to negotiate premiums or rate hikes with insurance companies. Ignoring all of that to make your #4 all about what GOPers are saying, instead of what they are actually doing, is dishonest nonsense. Carry their water more, why don't you.

    That's easy the Democrats rammed it down our throats when we didn't want it, the Democrats rushed it out when it was no way ready, the Democrats worked on the web site, and the Democrats (Obama) can't run the Government much less a business.

    Incompetence? How about that? I noticed that Sniff spends a lot of time on these boards.....and accuses people of not reading or comprehending the articles....the funny thing is that they CLEARLY miss the point of the articles.....seems someone here does have comprehension issues......

    One reason, its a govt. run program.This is nothing new. Govt. run programs are full of mistakes, fraud, scams, complex rules, and the list goes on and on. I feel bad for anyone who has to deal with this junk.

    The same could be said about the Department of Defense, but the right wing loves war too much to notice the problems.
