It's a disaster and it's been proven over and over Barry and assorted dems have caused it. Now they want to pile on the most expensive domestic disaster ever, Obamakare.
Barry cares nothing about jobs, even if he cared he couldn;'t create any, or he won't.

However, I'm doing fine. I do want to thank others for building the roads, airports, schools, etc. I couldn't have done it without them. lol

Do you ever actually follow our economy or business trends? Or, just allow your attitude, to rule your reality?

Millions have signed up because
1. It is illegal now to not have insurance thanks to Obama Care and most people are law abiding even if they do not agree with the law.
2. Their insurance that they were supposed to be allowed to keep has been canceled thanks to Obama Care.
3. Their employer no longer offers insurance thanks to Obama Care.
4. People with serious medical issues are able to get insurance for much less than what their medical costs are thanks to tax payer subsidies.
Social Security is almost broke and Medicare has increased medical costs for non-Medicare patients and cost billions just to administrate. In addition it is plagued by fraud and waste.

Projecting your own LIEberal demonrat dilemma onto others will never help solve your gross ineptitude. Pulling your head out of your posterior might help you though.

It's quite apparent that you don't. LIEberal demonrats have ALWAYS been very bad for the economy. Because the only ones that benefit are their cronies that bribed them to get their way and 'produce' deceptively. The only 'business' you freaks support are criminal enterprises.

Millions may have signed up for it but how many are actually covered by it. How many actually have health coverage other than those who signed up for Medicaid.

Pull your head out, agenda-driven traitor-troll:

Obamacare Official: We Have No Clue How Many People Have Paid for New Coverage
Guy Benson | Jan 17, 2014

...As it turns out, Udall was partially correct after all -- the state's figures were off. Just not in the direction his aides were lobbying for:

BREAKING: Colo. Division of Insurance confirms Obamacare cancellations 34% higher than previously believed, now at 335,000 cancellations
— Rep. Cory Gardner (@repcorygardner) January 15, 2014

That number will only grow in 2014, as millions of additional Americans will receive new cancellation notices in the fall. Udall's electoral fortunes are not as secure as they once appeared, as a late 2013 Quinnipiac poll demonstrated his weakness as an incumbent. Meanwhile, Obamacare continues to wreak havoc on businesses and families alike....

... Here's a bitter personal testimonial from a disaffected Obamacare fan:

My husband, Miles, was enrolled in what appeared to be an excellent, affordable plan at the stroke of midnight. Celebration seemed in order. It had been a tough slog, of course. We’d worried the GOP would succeed in defunding it or undermining it in some other way that would put affordable coverage further out of our reach. Then we’d wrestled with that horrific website, struggled to understand the choices before us and waited nervously after we did so to see if the insurance card would actually materialize. It did. On Jan. 1, we rejoiced. And on Jan. 10, we gave up. Ten days in, we decided to cancel Miles’ Obamacare plan, swallow hundreds of dollars we’ll probably never recover and buy him a private policy away from the Federal Health Insurance Exchange Marketplace. His new plan does benefit from many requirements of the Affordable Care Act as well, so that’s good. But even the administrators at Obamacare’s headquarters have agreed this is the best option. Really. That’s not how it was supposed to be. After dozens of hours of phone calls that displaced my usual work obligations this week, only one thing is clear: Nobody can give anybody a straight or consistent answer to anything. Our troubles may strike some as trivial and particular, although they wouldn’t if it happened to them. And anyone who wants a successful system – as we do – must understand that these nightmares are happening across the nation to the very people who want Obamacare to work....
