    It will all work out. Most people won't get on the web site till they know it's fixed, theirs plenty of time and as for the GOPs fake concern about the web site. They could care less of you have healthcare or insurance. That's why we are all waiting to kick the GOP out of office in 2014 midterms as payback for your obstruction of EVERYHING and 24 billion dallars worth of incompetents !!!!

    Landrieu's totally sensible proposal will never make it through a Congress that wants to see it fail. The GOP's propaganda wings, which include ABC (fraudulent Benghazi reporting), CBS (fraudulent Benghazi reporting), CNN (fraudulent Obamacare reporting), and Fox (just good old fraudulent reporting in general), also want Obamacare to fail, and, as we see here on this site, are spending CONSIDERABLE amounts of resources to ensure that it does fail. I hate to go Godwin, but the shoe is really starting to fit: the incessant criticism of all things Obamacare, much of it wrong or overblown, is fanatical propaganda worthy of comparison to Herr Goebbels' efforts.

    I have never seen anything like it.

    this is why i cannot stand these spineless dems sometimes. as any little thing happens they run for the hills. when will they stand up to these repubs and big corporate power. the repubs can do what they want because they've got corporate propaganda power at their back, sometimes dems you've got stand up for local folks even in humungous opposition. we need dems out on the beat calling on folks to by pass the healthcare website and go to their local hospital to sign up. its time Americans start saying what their country can do for them but what they can do for our country. help yourselves for crying out loud because this will be the last opportunity this country comes to a universal healthcare plan.

    The bad thing about the site it that the law is not mandating that everyone has to enroll into these exchanges. There are not enough health care provider options available in each state in these exchanges. If the site continues on as is for the next month or longer people will go else where and the website will be a huge money pit in the end.

    The law went to the extreme as in costs. No law should ever be costing this much just to put into place.

    Every time a new law has been issued people have to abide by it, and had figure it out for themselves but because this law is so grand there is not enough help in the law.

    The states need to help people in the lower income with assistance These are the people who will still do without if the states do give some form of assistance to the people who are working but at a lower income.

    The law is requiring everyone to have insurance and there's some 30 million plus of people who don't have health care.
    The costs are to high. If your going to keep this law as is, you have to find a way to provide for everyone and make the health care affordable or reform the law.

    The saying "The plans are cheaper than cell phones", that's not true either.
