how can you possibly say that being unable to find out the doctors and hospitals in the various networks is a "minor glitch"???
"Obstetricians labeled as ophthalmologists and the wrong doctors described as fluent in Russian and Farsi" is a glitch and a minor fix. Just be patient.

Jesus, thank God for Joe Biden.
Exactly. Where would we get our comic relief without Joe Biden?

"I promise you, the president has a big stick! I promise you!"

The crowd laughed but not sure if poor Joe ever knew why.

Just like when candidate Barack Obama said, "I've been to 57 states so far with two to go - not counting Hawaii."

He probably didn't know why the crowd laughed either.

But gotta love ole' Joe.

You Man the same unknown that gave an inspiring speech that, eventually opened the door for his run at the presidency back in 2004, at the Democratic Convention? That nobody sure turned out to be somebody! Unlike the nobody y'all overhyped as VP in 08 or, the nobody y'all presented as presidential material in 2012! There's an old church song that goes

I'm just a nobody
trying to tell everybody
about somebody, who can change anybody

Talk about prophecy! Obama's election dominations made the good better &, those with bad hearts show their true colors. Which side so you belong to?

Since you keep insisting on denying the IRS is overseeing Obamacare, who do YOU think is overseeing it?
The Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight (CCIIO) oversees the implementation of the provisions related to private health insurance.

Ah Fox News. I was wondering why all the lemmings were fired up this morning, some of their headlines -

OBAMACARE WOES
- Insurers get faulty data
from glitch-riddled website

- Obamacare site wasn't tested until week before launch

Tell you what folks, for those of you using Internet Explorer go in to advanced settings and check the box to 'show a notification for every javascript error' and then surf the web and see how many you get, you can even go to your beloved Fox News site where you will get about a dozen before you can get the home page to load.

Topix throws errors all the time.

Technically speaking these are glitches.

Trust me it will get very annoying and you will soon be unchecking that button very shortly.

December 16,1998 WASHINGTON (CNN)-- From the Oval Office, President Clinton told the nation Wednesday evening why he ordered new military strikes against Iraq and starts war with Iraq.

"Saddam (Hussein) must not be allowed to threaten his neighbors or the world with NUCLEAR ARMS, poison gas or biological weapons," Clinton said.

Our mission is to attack Iraq's NUCLEAR, chemical and biological weapons programs and its military capacity to threaten its neighbors," said Clinton.

Yeah, but the defunding part was soon dropped.
Do you know the only two changes in Obamacare the Republicans settled on and asked for to avoid a shutdown?
I'd really like to know if you know this.
There is only one. Since the "hub" already links to the IRS to verify income eligibility. The only change is that the HHS Secretary write a letter explaining what her department is already doing.

I'm not buying any insurance from the exchange. People who don't like it can get insurance elsewhere. No one is holding a gun to their head to use "a crappy Network/infrastructure".
