"overwhelmed with requests"....does that mean request for more info since we, like Congress, know very little about the bs about to befall us?
Maybe you should check the numbers on exactly how many people went to the site yesterday....and then how many actually signed up after looking it over.
You might not feel so "cocky" about it if you checked the stats on it. Of course like most liberals, facts just don't really matter do they? A liberal would never let facts get in the middle of their campaign to deceive.
When the young folks who don't need much health care understand that they will be paying for older Americans who do need more health care, they will shun Obama Care and without their dollars, it will die, as it should.

The online system was overwhelmed with unexpectedly high volume, the spokesman said. More than 1 million people had visited the site, www.healthcare.gov within the last day, amounting to five times more users than ever have been on the Medicare.gov website at one time.
Federal officials said the system is functioning, though slowly, and said they hoped to resolve the issues within hours.
Did it ever occur to you that more people are viewing the site and looking for info on Obamacare than they did Medicare because we know so much less about Obamacare? Perhaps the politicians were a little more educated on Medicare before voting for it. Merely looking at the site certainly does NOT qualify as the number of people that will or did sign up.

Libs were so stupid about the whole thing that they know the whole thing depends on younger people signing up for it. But what do they do....allow those younger people to stay on their parent's plans until the age of 26! Well hell, it's a given that few younger people under that age of 27 will even need to sign up for it. They shot themselves in the foot and are too stupid to even see it! They just eliminated millions of young enrollees by making the parent's pay for them for several more years, taking away the ability of those parent's to drop the kids, even after graduating college, from their plans and getting to save some money after all the years of covering them. Apparently the government doesn't think a kid should be independent or responsible until they are damn near 30 now!!!

With fewer excuses more people will be taking personal responsibility for their own insurance.

Perhaps you should take a look at the most ask question, the question most read, and the question most answered on the websites yesterday. "what happens if I don't get insurance?" "how much will I pay if I don't pick up coverage?" Now does that sound like kids wanting to take on the responsibility of paying for health insurance, and paying a high rate for it, so they can cover older folks?

I agree the concepts of personal responsibility, community and common good needs some reinforcing with a stick in today's world, but if the some of the major problems with insurance in the past such as preexisting conditions loopholes, lifetime caps and excessive overhead costs are avoided there will be more participation. And responsible people understand and buy auto insurance - so this isn't a new concept.

there is no actual data from the official websites available from yesterday. People who needed and wanted insurance jammed the system.

Allow me to correct your statement so that it is actually accurate.... People who needed and wanted INFORMATION on the insurance that the American people along with Congress know so little about jammed the system. Again, check the number of hits on the site and the actual number of those that signed up while on the site.

Auto insurance is mandated by the state not the government, and there is no option for a small insignificant fine if you choose not to carry it. There is NO OUT for auto insurance. You get caught without it and you will pay a hefty fine, can lose your license, and suffer all sorts of problems. They actually want you to be so worried about the fines and punishment for not carrying it that most people do.
And if they really wanted to make it cheaper for people they would have included tort reform. They did not touch it!

Have you ever heard of Social Security?

PS: I've haven't had an "at fault" auto accident for more than thirty years... but I am subsidizing inept drunkards like yourself through my higher premiums.

It is how insurance works.

Gosh, maybe they could have included making marajuana legal in all 50 states and declaring the Dalls Cowboys America's team...

But instead the ACA is the law of the land and the House Republicans shut down the government and they aren't going to come out of this well.

Sure there is: If you can cover the requirements- e.g., you give the state a certified check for (whatever the state requires, e.g.)$100,000, you don't need to have auto insurance.

My state has fewer gun control laws after losing in the Supreme Court. The best part of this whole thing is watching the Madigans, Daddy, and daughter, have to respect the 2nd Amendment. It is worth all my tax money!!!
