Oregon spend 135 million dollars building a website that never signed up one person. Now they want to be part of one that had a 4 year head start to get it together then fell on its face.

Of course Obama says it works great now, and if you like your insurance and doctor you can keep it.

They should've consulted Democratic Governor Beshear in Kentucky, to see how a successful state-run website is operated. With the move to the federal site, those from Oregan will be able to purge their junk policies.

All the millions of dollars spent on building websites to sell insurance could have bought a whole LOT of actual HEALTHCARE.

Just think of the healthcare we could have had if we hadn't spent billions of dollars on a jet that can't fly in the rain?

The state initially paid $134 million to Oracle Corp. to build its online exchange. Cover Oregon also spent more than $3 million on marketing the site, which included radio, television and YouTube ads.

you truly are a credit to the liberal left...TOTALLY clueless!

So, what Bareback is saying is, liberals only have $605million invested in just websites, no insurance, no taxpayer funded subsides, JUST websites. But the Barebacks said there were 30million people without health insurance before obamacare. So, why didn't we just give each one without insurance $20.1million and let them buy some? Even under obamacare you can get a bronze plan for less than $20million. A truly progressive victory Bareback- congratulations.

I know hard to talk with your boyfriend's sausage bouncing off your tonsils, RustyTrombone, but you work hard in learning how to speak for yourself before trying to to talk for others.

I understand you have had a lifetime of free care courtesy of the contagious diseases division of the county health department, but not everyone else has, including the 9million or so that have health care now.

As far as the Oregon site is concerned: a cost of $4-5 million is probably a better deal than the $70 million quote to replace the existing site.

Reach back there, Rusty, play that trombone for us.
