    There is going to be a problem with anything and everything. Why should this be any different?

    "Sibelius is not very good at this. Never get mad, first of all, and protect your boss, second of all."

    Wow, dude. So now you have officially jumped to a blatant partisan. "Protect your boss" is the advice you give to her? Shouldn't we want the truth? Shouldn't we want honest testimony to find out what happened and why things are obviously off to a less than desired start? Why are you more interested in protecting President Obama rather than getting to solving the problem and not giving honest testimony?

    Everyone involved needs to be apologizing. It's not like the Health and Human Secretary Sebelius ,President Obama and Joe Biden are the only three people involved in this lengthy process of implementation for the healthcare.gov website. They seem to be apologizing for everyone. The people involved are getting paid to do a job and they need to be explaining what the real problems are to all of us and be sympathetic about it.

    Everyone needs to come forward and state his or her part in this process and let the American people know when it's all going to be fixed to give the people more security and reasons to want to go back to the website. People don't want to sit for extended lengths of time of the computer or on the phone. Time is precious! After my 30 minute wait on the phone turned into an hour, that was all I could wait because I had other things to do. The computer system was down.

    We are talking about giving people fines for not having insurance, still at the same set deadline. If people can't enroll into these exchanges, then people who need to be fined and the ones involved in the implementation process and not the individual people who are mandated to get insurance.

    The site will be up and running, junk insurance plans will be a thing of the past, and people with pre existing conditions will be covered. No lifetime caps and you don't have to worry about losing your insurance if you get sick. No wonder the RWNJs are attacking the ACA with everything they have. Read the Miami Herald article about Florida Blue, you'll feel better.

    The attacks on the ACA by RWNJs sure have gotten us to forget the $24 billion debt from the republican government shutdown and near default. So, in politics, the GOP has mastered the art of smokescreens.

    This nation, the USA needs to know it is a technical glitch–which can be fixable. GOP unneeded fussing is silly, ludicrous.
