a figment of your imagination
So where are we on this.

I had high hopes for it....I still think it an improvement...

I wish our politicians could get together on impoving our social ills and not increasing them.

Your thoughts?

A good idea (as a start) - in theory. A disaster upon implementation. It never ceases to amaze me how well the Democrats are at self destruction. First is Obama's outright lie that people could keep their insurance. Of course he says one can get better coverage for less thru his plan. Only thing is the website is unusable.

So Americans who believed they could keep what they had find they cannot, and they cannot use the new website to confirm if they really can get better/cheaper or not.

The company who was chosen to do the project projected a $90 million cost to build the website. By the time they were done, that had ballooned to $200 million. We have now spent another $100 million hiring "experts in the field" to fix the piece of crap our first $200 million got us.

And the result of that, the site is still confusing as hell, completely unintuitive, and still does not function in any way even close to how it is supposed to.

In theory I thought the ACA was a start in the right direction. It is nowhere near health reform; politics took that out of the equation up front. But it was a health bill that offered some very good concepts.

If the website had worked as it was supposed to, I do think this would have been a success. Thanks to the bungling though it might very likely end up dead in the water.

And the Republicans will have their way and put us back at the mercy of the insurance companies. Because they have been oh so fair to us these past few decades. NOT.

The ACA is a thoughtful principle that has been badly developed and implemented as a practice. Why was this atrocity necessary? Any person in the U.S. in need of medical care could go to an emergency room for treatment and would not be denied due to no medical care coverage. The ACA is NOT medical care, it is insurance that will pay for medical care. Otherwise all these people being forced to sign up would have to report to a doctor in order to achieve that product for which they are required to pay.

It's just a bass ackwards government boondoggle. And it has not yet begun to ravage the economy.
