You can't make this stuff up....

Lois Lerner, ousted from IRS, volunteers to screen grant applications in Montgomery Co.

Lois Lerner was the public face of a scandal that brought the IRS to its knees this past summer: revelations that it had been improperly scrutinizing conservative groups seeking tax exempt status.

Since her resignation last month, the former head of the IRS’s exempt-organizations division, who lives in Bethesda, has evidently been looking to fill the extra time with some volunteer work. She’s seeking a spot on the Montgomery County citizens panel that reviews grant applications from tax-exempt, nonprofit community groups.

This isn't just any other website. It is a government website and government websites, IRS for example, ask for personal data before you can access information. This site doesn't work if it doesn't have your data to determine if you are even eligible to apply. It's a leap of faith. I don't think a person who doesn't qualify for a subsidy should buy from the exchange. You can get a better deal off market.
to the contrary, one can access all IRS regulations, forms, rates, etc, online without providing any personal information....

I have news, I could have saved money from dumping my employees at any time in the past.
If I can buy equivalent coverage through the exchanges & save a couple hundred per employee then why not.
Only a dumbass like you would not investigate the options.
When shipping in the employer section, I had to supply little information if any.

Honestly? You think the system wasn't tested before start up? You'd be right back where we are now. Just be patient. The open enrollment period doesn't end until March 31, 2014. Or, you could just pay the $95 fee and come back during the next enrollment period if it's bugging you so much.
the system was not properly tested before startup....

Following the Bush withdraw timetable. I thought you were against the Iraq War, did you want to go back and refight it now?

Bush has gotten us into basically 2 never-ending wars, the war in Afghanistan and the War on Terror which I suppose now includes Irag of course there wasn't much of an Al Queda presence in Iraq until we invaded.

Well, it's no secret that Republicans are trying to foul up the system but they will get tired and/or the IT company will figure out a way to block repeat IP addresses. It will all work out.

No need to report or verify income to get on the exchanges.

The threat of stiff penalties are warned if caught, but who is going to have the time to monitor or care about abuse and fraud?

Look at the welfare system and SS disability claims.
