    Would right wingnuts be happy if insurance companies could kick people off their rolls if they get sick? Would RWNJS be happy if people with a pre existing condition could not get health care? Maybe they would feel better if students could not stay on their parents plan or uninsured republicans did not have to pay for their own insurance.

  4. the hippies were right

    Funny how it's never reported how these insurance companies are fine with the ACA. They will gain more policy holders so they can make up their losses for not being allowed to rip us off any longer. Everyone's happy. Except for the brainwashed fox "spews" sheep of course.

    One word. Cruz the little hitler.
    He needs to be indicted for ethics violations, putting American citizens out of work and for wasting our government, not his of Canada, $24BILLION.
    There's a story or two or three we need to get and go after.

    The faux poutrage from the RWNJs over this is hilarious. They'd be even madder if the website worked perfectly and we all know it.

    The face-eating bath salts guy makes more sense than a Darrel Issa Committee Meeting.

    I work in IT and I can say with 100% certainty that if they didn't test adequately and shake out the issues in the base functionality of the web site, then they certainly did not perform due diligence and ensure things like data security and prevention against hacking. People are crazy to even be considering posting all of their most personal and private information to this web site. I am sure that is the next big shoe to drop. This calamity is far from over.

    No RWNJ should be allowed to complain about the ACA( Obamacare) until the cost exceeds the cost of crazy republican expenses : $2 trillion for an unfunded unnecessary war, $1 trillion for tax cuts for the wealthy, $1 trillion for an unfunded drug program, $900 billion for bailing out the banks, and $24 billion for shutting down the government. When that happens, republicans, then and only then, should complain.

    It sure is a good thing Sibilius didn't let all these tiny problems interfere with her attendance at a gala event in Boston!

    Seriously though... what subordinate in this country keeps their job after personally slathering egg all over the face of their boss? Obama reveals himself as totally disconnected from even the most major events in his adminstration. Is it because he has no interest in them? Is he too busy worrying about his next tee time? Is he purposely staying away from knowing about things? Or are people purposely not informing him? Either situation is a very dangerous situation for a President of the Unoited States.

    This is one scary way to be running the worlds only super power.

    Humana and United Health Care are advertising on CNN's Political Ticker. Both firms have fled the Marketplace Exchanges.

    Question for CNN: how are you going to address this conflict of interest, which is clearly coloring your Obamacare coverage, to your viewers and readers?

    Glitch can be fixed. ACA IS A LAW. GOP, hospitals, doctors, insurance thugs, pharmacy lost the game. The end.
