That's the price tag that goes along with the website ALONE!

It's also worth noting, Obama didn't even select an American company for this. CGI Group is a Canadian company which operates offices in Fairfax VA under the name CGI Federal.

The company is privately-held, so expect ZERO disclosures about their operations, finances, or connections.

Go grab a cold six pack of Molson and try to sign up, eh?

Maybe you should go and do some research on where teacher's salaries come from, instead of embarrassing yourself on another thread.

Many Republicans hate anything Obama, thus their extreme hate of Obamacare. Truth is, many people who will benefit from O-care are poor red state Republicans who for decades have been taught less government is better.

Republicans fear more people who have greater access to health coverage under Obama may realize it didn't destroy America, that in fact it improved the lives for many that voted Republican.
It's not at all a matter of 'hating anything' Obama.

It's just that the only things Obama can find to park his ass on are things that infringe upon everyone's personal liberty, Constitutional rights, or are geared towards 'fairness' that entails someone else deciding how much of what one person makes should 'fairly' be taken away and given to someone else who didn't work for it.

And reducing the size of the military will get teachers pay raises.-snort-. What a buffoon.

Not like that at all. Not even a relevant or meaningful comparison. Have you heard? Cheney hasn't been VP for 5 years.

While your thinking along those lines, consider this:

Bush bombed Iraq and Afghanistan during his presidency.

Obama bombed Irag, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya during his so far, 4 years in.

And Obama the Nobel Peace Prize winner has sent Americans into Somalia and Kenya to kill, too.

Let's say there are 100,000,000 signups that need to happen. In the first week, 51,000 signed up (er, perhaps 'created account' is all).

100,000,000 signups /51,000 per week = 1960 weeks

1960 weeks = 37 years

The Medicare cuts are killing more people than O-care will ever save. I know many seniors who have stopped their meds or have started skipping doses and cutting pills to half doses.

( CNSNews.com )-- Bureaucracies in the Obama Administration have thus far published approximately 11,588,500 words of final Obamacare regulations, while there are only 381,517 words in the Obamacare law itself. That means unelected federal officials have now written 30 words of regulations for each word in the law. What is commonly known as the Obamacare law includes both the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) and the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act (HCERA). Since these bills were signed into law by President Barack Obama in March 2010, various agencies in the administration have published 109 final regulations spelling out how they are to be implemented. These 109 final regulations account for a combined 10,535 pages in the Federal Register, where the government officially published them.

Daily Kos: Obamacare will double my monthly premium (according to Kaiser)

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/09/30/1242...

My wife and I just got our updates from Kaiser telling us what our 2014 rates will be. Her monthly has been $168 this year, mine $150. We have a high deductible. We are generally healthy people who don't go to the doctor often. I barely ever go. The insurance is in case of a major catastrophe.

Well, now, because of Obamacare, my wife's rate is gong to $302 per month and mine is jumping to $284.

I am canceling insurance for us and I am not paying any fvcking penalty. What the hell kind of reform is this?

Even the far Left is finding out what's in it now that it's been signed.
