5 things to look for now in Obamacare site fix

 (CNN) – The Obama administration has said it has been frantically working to fix big technical problems with the HealthCare.gov site following its disastrous launch in October.

There have been hardware upgrades and other changes, and officials hope to have the site up and running smoothly for most people by Saturday.

But then the administration also says the weekend deadline is not a panacea, that problems could still occur. What, then, should consumers expect?

Here are five things to know about HealthCare.gov this weekend.

    Here's what I see. You can bash it, or accept it. It's the LAw.

    .
    Doctors are running healthcare. Insurance Companies are providing the insurance.

    The government is trying to offer an easy way to sign up.

    You can still call, ask for paperwork, or go to a sign-up office.

    The website is not the end of the world. It's one of 4 ways to get health insurance thru an insurance company that cannot turn you down.

    That's not government run Healthcare.

    ------------------

    Governors in red states want to be there to probe every woman that is pregnant, and make women who have miscarriages turn themselves in to the police for possible murder charges. THAT's government run Healthcare.

    I suspect that once the site is fixed, and Republicans can no longer exploit that, we will see new Republican lies about the ACA- along the lines of the fake "Obama disrespects Lincoln's Gettysburg Address", or "Iran treaty is a cover for Obamacare debacle", or some other idiotic silliness.

    Remember GOP- people still see that you've accomplished nothing in the last 5 years.

    We real Americans want the republican party to pay $24 billion for the shutdown and near default. We also want them to pay for the 4500 soldiers deaths in an unnecessary war. We need the GOP to give us back our 45,000 wounded soldiers who never should have been sent to republican wars in the Middle East.

    Anyone sign up for republican care today? It costs more, you get kicked off for getting sick, it doesn't cover major surgeries, can't have pre existing conditions, doesn't allow students to stay on the parents plan, but the premiums only increase by 20% a year.

    And what would the Right replace the ACA with? Remember? They have nothing. Meanwhile, the system works. As you apparently don't understand how the ACA works: people buy insurance from commercial health insurance companies, and they get subsidies based upon their income. Everybody pays.

    Fox fools and the Kochs need to stay out of our health care. They have convinced the brain dead that access to a doctor is socialism.

    @rs-95% of the people responding negatively don't understand how it works, and they don't intend to teach themselves about it. That is what Fox news is for.

    @Harold LewisBlair--Oh, I see, and the people who just cost us Americans (whom you so glibly pretend to represent) 24+Billion know everything.

    @ Barney shapiro – Simple solution : ignore any 'solution' that is not exposed in details on how-to's (do it, fund it and pass it under any SCOTUS' review). That means that all 'solutions' propposed by the GOP and their supporters, so far, are to be ignored (true...), but alas they haven't thought (yet?) in any thing that can comes after 'repeal it' (like 'repeal it and replace it with...').
