Anyone here signed up for individual Obamacare yet? What does your policy have to say about "out-of-network" coverage? Say you're visiting relative in FL for a month this winter and need to see a doctor down there for some non emergency concern?

gravelspit, why don't you stop falling for the Obama sound bites. Greedy insurance companies? Obama and the Democrats created a one TRILLION dollar slush fund to give to the insurance companies to subsidize ridiculous Obamacare promises. Our government is taking in more tax revenue as we speak than at any time in our country's history. And still, Obama and the Democrats say they "need" to raise taxes, they need more of our money. THAT is the real greed in our society. Only a fool would blame insurance lobbyists. Blaming lobbyists is a game lying politicians play because the politicians DO NOT HAVE TO LISTEN to the lobbyists.

Disagree with you lone on the "single-payer" plan. First off, a truer discussion would be to never use the term "single-payer" ever again. "Single-payer" implies that only one party would be paying and that payer would be someone else. What it really be referred to is "nationalized healthcare". The Democrats did NOT have the votes for this and that is why Harry Reid said Obamacare was a good first step because they couldn't get it done all at once. When one looks intelligently at Congressional "obstructionism", it starts and ends with Harry Reid. It should be easily apparent when recalling: no budgets for 4 years (violating the law), dozens of bills passed by the House that included Obamacare fixes, jobs bills and steps to take to fix the immigration problem. Harry Reid does nothing and then Obama says he must go around the law to get things done because "Congress" isn't doing their job. THAT'S the game they've been playing.

I support the program, but I thought the roll out was terrible! It's not that hard to estimate traffic on a Web site and provide sufficient servers to handle it. This process has been worked out by several large, online retailers. Then, the lack of response to the issue was the most shocking part. It should have been fixed immediately. Very disappointing.

As bad as the roll-outs have been, the contents of both, when finally revealed, will be much worse.

correction: that is "Pitiful" not "Pitifu", my keyboard/computer experiences delays when typing.

"Pitifu", #1 - I was outraged by Romney's healthcare plan in Massachusettes. I do not believe in top-down, command and control of anything, whether it be run by a state or the federal government. #2 - Romney's plan did not directly effect me, I live in New York state. #3 - Romney's plan received a lot of federal tax dollars. #4 - It isn't working.

The roll-out of Obamacare is nothing, compared to what is in the law and what it will and is doing to us and our country.

Compare to any other huge's way out of line. And of course it was a no bid contract to a friend of the Obamas. Where's the outrage from the Haliburton screamers?

It's more like the $640 million question. The federal government has spent more than $600 million dollars just in the implementation of Obamacare - and that was before the rollout on October 1st. So, in all honesty, Monkey, 50's underestimated the amount. Do your own homework and look it up. It's out there, everywhere, including mainstream articles.

As usual, there will be no one held responsible for spending a hundred times more money than necessary on tis program.
