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's funny. The stories I've heard from real people is that they could finally get insurance at a reasonable price.

If the Repubs are so against the Law, they should work to gain control both Houses of Congress in order to make the change. Closing down Govt and threats of default will not help them to win future elections! Also, if the plan is so bad, the Repubs should just shut up and let the program self-destruct; or offer an alternative plan that they can support.

If ObamaCare was the GAME "Celebrity Apprentice" and Kathleen Sebelius was the project manager of a failed mission, Donald Trump's answer would be.....wait for it....'You're fired!"

My neighbor was telling me that he never changes the oil in his car because it costs $35 a pop. He figures he'll save a bunch of money with this strategy. He is also a vehement opponent of the ACA. Why am I not surprised?

Lilrud - if you call a $5000 deductible in the Bronze Package "reasonable", than you must live in a different universe.

Those who love Obamacare claim it can be fixed with a little common sense and practical application. It could also be repealed and replaced with something much better for a whole lot less money. So after blowing half a billion on something, Obama is going to splurge and bring in a lot of high-priced talent from Silicon Valley. And to those deaf, dumb and blind, Republicans have offered better alternatives since before Obamacare was even passed. Where were you people when the Democrats wrote this garbage behind closed and locked doors. Obama refused to even allow Republicans to participate in writing Obamacare although he had the head of SEIU at the White House more than 20 times. The reason some Republicans have been trying to stop the funding is because they know that Obama and the Democrats will throw trillions at this fiasco rather than admit it's a disaster. The red ink on this turkey will surpass, by far, that of Medicare and Medicaid.

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. No surprise that they will also be steering people to register to vote as well as obtaining their personal info to include SSN's and medical history, income etc. The woman in charge of the IRS scandal to discriminate and attack any groups opposed to Obama has also been put in charge of IRS enforcement of Obamacare. How many political donors to Obama will be given a free ride on Obamacare enforcement?

PS - Don't you just love it when the Obamacare website comes right out and tells you that you should have no expectation of privacy for your personal information.

Regardless of how bad Obamacare turns out....any government social program will be impossible to kill once in place. Especially when it is the signature legacy of the first black president.

FedupL8ly, what investigator report? What right-wing website did you get that nugget from?

Republicans are not afraid the ACA will fail. They are afraid it will succeed. Let it alone and see. If it fails, it can be repealed. If it succeeds, we all benefit.

Clueless Ted Cruz is still saying he won't rule out shutting down the government again in a few weeks. Don't these Tea Baggers ever learn?

Can anyone tell me if there's a place where one can actually review the various coverages and costs for New York Plans without creating an account with the suggested online sites? I can't find anything.

How about this monkey..if it fails, we tax the Dems to pay the billions it cost, and impeach the guy who signed it, and all his minions? I think you should be required to have photo ID to get medical treatment. Even if it's a mug shot. That should be easy enough for the poor and disenfranchised.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?
