If "rammed it through" means "got the bill passed with a majority in both the House and Senate as all bills are passed" then he did.

Obviously you WERE in a coma. You must have been in one in high school too when they taught how bills were passed.

Loner is criticizing Obama for not "ramming through" single payer health care. Where were you when all of this was happening, Loner, in a coma? Obama wanted single payer and couldn't get it by Republicans. If you have a beef about that talk to your Republican representative.

Patience there Thomas77 and loneriderrr1. Obama can't pass a piece of legislation like this without repubs support, which Bohner said, "we got 99% of what we wanted." And guess what. The big complaint is that there aren't enough doctors and facilities to go around. Well guess what. That is going to change. There will be enough, maybe not right now, but it will happen. You see, there are standards that now have to be met by insurance carriers, those standards didn't exist before, and people got screwed! Paying for years and then getting dropped. Insurance companies have to spend a specific amount of there revenue. That will bring jobs. Jobs jobs jobs. And republicans don't want that. Republicans are too busy cheering the Lakeshore closing. Yeah, that's Obummer's fault. Like they cheered when Chicago didn't get the Olympics. Like when they cheered when Benghazi happened. They need something to pin on Obama.

I'm sick of Obamacare. All these politicians really need to start doing something about the economy. Something they have neglected for the last five years. The house is a worthless part of our government. You would think they would get the message when they got a 5% approval rating. I'm more worried about a job, then health benefits at this point in time.

The government is not yet able to tell my employer or my insurance company, or my Doctor they have to keep me. That's the kind of power Obama wants, but he spoke too soon. He's not Prez for life just yet.

Why does the tea party hate America? So the software has problems. Big deal. There's still several months to go before the start. You can apply without going online, did you know that? Sure, you get to keep your insurance…unless they were a corrupt company that doesn't pay out or cover basic care. Did you really want to keep that plan? I'm sure you can move to FL and still get that plan. They'd be happy to charge you and then deny coverage. I'm sure they'll cover a bandaid, nothing else though.

Now we know that the no bid contract was given to a company with an old friend of the first lady as a VP and the company donated to Obama after they were selected, I bet there will be cries of cronyism from the dems like the howled over Haliburton. Right? Uh-huh.

I'd rather see billions of taxpayer dollars thrown at an attempt to get health care insurance for people than being spent overseas on killing people in illegal wars started by republican presidents.

Emelye- If you ever listened to something other than CNBC, MSNBC, NBC, NPR, CNN then you might hear who is doing the reporting and how they got their information. Multiple reports on those hired to be "navigators" for Obamacare. The person I heard was Byron York. Now go ahead and try to tell me he's not as respected as Rachel Madcow, Ed Shultz or Chris Mathews.

FedUpL8ly wrote, "Investigator reports that SEIU workers, ACORN groups and illegal immigrants along with Democrats are working as "navigators" for Obamacare. These include felons and others with outstanding criminal warrants for their arrest. . . ."

From where do you get this stuff, FedUpL8ly? Why do people get so sucked in by such ridiculous conspiracy theories?

I don't remember seeing any viable alternatives to Obamacare that were floated by the Republicans, unless you mean going back to the horribly expensive and broken system we had before. If Obamacare is so terribly wrong, we should ask the Heritage Foundation how to fix it, since it was mostly their idea anyway. Where was their alternative plan? I don't remember ever seeing one.

Just talked to a prog who says Cruz is a Mexican-Canadian and not eligible for President. In the same breath she said she'd like to go to a tea part meeting and see where the loons get their ideas. I swear it's the truth.

Orangeman- a government employee didn't write Obamacare, HHS/Obama went to Canada and hired the same Canadian company that screwed the pooch with Ontario's healthcare program. How about it all you Dem. supporters, a perfect example of Obama's Jobs Program, hire foreigners. Donkeyboy, why don't you specify just how much failure has to occur before you vote for a Republican who will vote to repeal Obamacare because you should know that a Democrat will always put the Party ahead of the country.

Obamacare is going to fail by design so that the failure can usher in socialized single payer insurance like Canada and UK have. Doctors and hospitals will become employees of the government like the VA. Private practicies and rural hospitals will go out of business. There will be a local clinic to deal wih minor stuff but all specialists will be gone to larger medical centers. Say goodby to medcine as you know it. Get ready for rationing of healthcare. If your rich...don't worry there will be a two tier system like in UK too. If your poor you go to the public hospital and use Obamacare and die on a gurney in the hall after your ration has un out..if your rich you go to the private institution and pay for excellent care.

it really makes me wonder why this website cant handle the volume and is crashing.

Our government spends millions on toilet seats and wrenches, What government bureaucrat actually wrote this program?

if this legislation is truely Obamas legacy, he should have had a better I.T. Team working on this program.

50s, Your comment looks good. It wasn't the political content I was concerned about. I didn't see anything that would get you in trouble with monkey. He should be just about out of the "racial" labels.

Oelwyn>>>"Anything can be fixed with a little common sense and practical application. A closed mind is just as useless as a door that won't open." That sounds good. Show us how it's done.
