If you’re so effective then why is there even an OBAMACARE law? You and this (imaginary)“movement”[you’re probably referring to a bowel movement] is powerful enough to shut down a website (LOL; joke) but couldn’t win the 2008 or 2012 Elections… and couldn’t stop Obama from getting his signature piece of legislation from being implemented…
Furthermore, you’re admitting to a crime by saying that you are trying to sabotage the government or a business… my God you’re stupid, LOL.
LMAO! Have me arrested than moron! "signature piece of legislation"? WTF! LMAO! You mean Signature Piece of Shyt! Odumbo is going to go down as the worst President in the history of the United States and you puppets will go down with him. You couldn't be a pimple on a marines ass!

Pressure grows on Sebelius - While the president tries to boost flagging confidence in his program, pressure is mounting on the woman directly in charge of the woebegone rollout, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. House Republicans are demanding she explain how the site crashed, despite having three years to prepare for launch. Sebelius has so far refused, but Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin, D-Ill., told Chris Wallace, “Ultimately, Secretary Sebelius will testify.” Key issues include the tangle of contractors involved in the construction as well as unheeded warnings about the launch.

Oprah refuses to promote Odumbocare=White House adviser Valerie Jarrett had phoned Winfrey in August to invite her to the White House to meet with a host of other stars, including Amy Poehler, Jennifer Hudson and Alicia Keys to meet with Obama to discuss publicizing the law.

Winfrey instead sent a lower-level representative from one of her talent agencies. As the president's healthcare plan has turned into the train wreck its Republican opponents have been calling it all along, the woman who brought millions of votes to Obama's first presidential campaign has not lifted a finger to help him out.

Klein said Winfrey is still feeling snubbed because she did not get the unfettered access she expected to the Obama White House when she was stumping nationwide for him. While she campaigned heavily for him in 2008, giving her first-ever presidential endorsement, she backed away for the 2012 race, saying that she was too busy launching her new cable network, OWN, to join in the campaign.

"What was not reported was that, in return, Oprah was promised unique access to the White House if Obama won," Klein said. "She’d get regular briefings on initiatives and a heads-up on programs to give her material for her fledgling cable network, OWN."

A source close to Winfrey told Klein that there were big plans, and a team was put together to come up with proposals that would benefit them both, but nothing happened, and OWN has struggled since its debut. Proof that the Obamas are nothing but whores. They will kick anybody to the curb after they get what they want.

o enroll in a new ObamaCare health insurance plan on the federal marketplace, most consumers must first provide private personal information.

But buried in that website's blueprint (known as "source code") lies an alarming warning first unearthed by the Weekly Standard.

"You have no reasonable expectation of privacy regarding any communication or data transiting or stored on this information system," reads the disclaimer, which does not appear on the site's visible "Terms and Conditions" page.

The disclaimer continues: "At any time, and for any lawful Government purpose, the government may monitor, intercept, and search and seize any communication or data transiting or stored on this information system."

Now security experts are worried this paragraph beneath the surface at HealthCare.gov may represent an ominous sign -- that the U.S. government is ill-equipped to handle identity thieves.

"This sounds as they're saying ... we're not guaranteeing we can protect anything you give us at all," security expert Morgan Wright told Fox News on Wednesday.

Wright added, "You've just told everybody where the gold is and you've left it unsecured. So it will come as no shock that this will be stolen."

How stupid are you to basically waste however long you tried to log on, and then another 30 minutes on the phone to curse at someone ready to do their job; who probably just finished signing up someone for health coverage because your patience is that of a 5 year old… and furthermore, you’re the fool who needs health care insurance, so who are you hurting?… LOL, you tea-baggers are dumb.

Someone needs a lesson in differentiating simple sever load limitations from astoundingly crappy system coding. Even the page code visible via a browser's view file feature reveals enough to see that. And to add insult to injury, after charging U.S. taxpayers upwards of half a billion dollars for the shitcode that is Healthcare.gov , the hack contractors of CGI Federal et al. are now denying gross incompetence. Can anyone say 'Performance Bond'? Time to collect, if a performance bond was even required of them.

What a complete clusterfuck.

You are on a state exchange. DUH! apples to oranges. The federal one is the one having so many problems. And guess what? Your state taxes are going to rise exponentially to support expanded Medicaid to cover tax breaks and subsidies for the low income applicants. Rock on!!!!

flubs Medicare Part D glitches were defended by a gaggle of cons in '06. Here's one from wrexas defending the glitches:

REP. JOE BARTON (R-TX):“This is a huge undertaking and there are going to be glitches. My goal is the same as yours: Get rid of the glitches. The committee will work closely with yourself and Dr. Mark McClellan at CMS to get problems noticed and solved.”[Barton Statement via Archive.org , 2/15/2006]

No one is yet talking about the fact that when the site DOES work, the information it gives does not include anything about the actual health care benefits of the plans it gives prices for. People! Health insurance is NOT health care! An insurance plan without a local doctor is pretty worthless. The current web site results do not give, or even link to this information about the health care benefits and health care networks the for available plans. It is impossible to choose a plan without this information. This site's problems are not even close to being resolved. In technical terms this should have been considered an alpha release, for testing only, and it would be a very, very bad alpha. I have said this many times... The problem is poor requirements for the system. It is a garbage-in, garbage-out scenario. The requirements came from HHS, and the system's acceptance testing and integration testing also belongs to them. This failure, and the future solution has to come from there.

Once the applicants that are low income are transferred to Medicaid, the taxes will increase and new ones will be enacted. Like taxes on bandaids, cold cream, socks, sunglasses, etc. Obscure hidden taxes designed for nothing more than to cover those who joined.

CBS News) The disastrous rollout of HealthCare.gov may have another serious problem: A CBS News analysis shows that in many of the 15 state-based health insurance exchanges more people are enrolling in Medicaid rather than buying private health insurance. And if that trend continues, there's concern there won't be enough healthy people buying health insurance for the system to work.

As the Obamacare website struggles, the administration is emphasizing state-level success. President Obama said Monday, "There's great demand at the state level as well. Because there are a bunch of states running their own marketplaces."

But left unsaid in the president's remarks: the newly insured in some of those states are overwhelmingly low-income people signing up for Medicaid at no cost to them.

Matt Salo, executive director of the National Association of Medicaid Directors, said, "We're seeing a huge spike in terms of Medicaid enrollments."

He says the numbers have surprised him and state officials.

CBS News has confirmed that in Washington, of the more than 35,000 people newly enrolled, 87 percent signed up for Medicaid. In Kentucky, out of 26,000 new enrollments, 82 percent are in Medicaid. And in New York, of 37,000 enrollments, Medicaid accounts for 64 percent. And there are similar stories across the country in nearly half of the states that run their own exchanges. This what I am talking about.
