Since you have apparently not been following the news the past few months, almost NOBODY is signing up for "The Joseph Stalin Memorial Salt Mine OBAMACARE PLAN", and the administration's own internal documents have been warning for months that unless young, healthy people sign up, the entire house of card will collapse within the year. And since their is no enforcement mechanism in the law to force people to sign up, they won't.
I certainly won't sign up for this Stalinist plan. What's The Obamaniac going to do ? Throw me, and millions of other Americans, in jail for not doing so ? And before you even say it, the I.R.S. which has been targeting conservatives, Libertarians, Tea Party people, and others, has NO enforcement power to collect the "fines". The whole "OBAMACAREFIASCO'(te administration's new official name for it) will collapse under it's own weight in short order.
And since the Democrats used the "nuclear option" recently, when the Senate reconvenes in 2015 with a Republican majority, they're sure to plunge a stake into it. All they have to do is get a simple majority now in the Senate (because of the Democrat's use of the "nuclear option") and a simple majority in the House to refuse to appropriate ANY funds to fund it in any way whatsoever.
And shouldn't you be MORE concerned with The Obamaniac doing NOTHING to have the DEMOCRATS pass ENDA when he had TOTAL CONTROL of Congress with his party having overwhelming majorities in the House and Senate from 2007 - 2011 ? Why didn't he do what he PROMISED TO do, when The Obamaniac had total control of congress ?
Could it be that The Obamaniac was... What's the word ??? Oh yeah..... LYING ???(If you like your healthcare you can KEEP your healthcare ! Period !:))

3,300,000 out of 316,000,000 Americans, huh ? WOW ! That's about 1%! you call 1% success ?!

And I, like millions of Americans will not sign up for the "Joseph Stalin Memorial Salt Mine Obamacarefiasco" (The new official name). What's The Obamaniac gonna do ? Throw me, and millions of other Americans in jail for not doing so ? The Obamanaic has no enforcement mechanism to make people pay. The whole thing will collapse under it's own weight shortly.

Well, if you don't have other insurance and don't sign up before the deadline, the IRS will simply take the fine from any tax refund you may be due.

3 million is 10% of all those without insurance. Not bad considering the website has only been up a couple of months.

Time will tell how it eventually works out.

Of course you also predicted Obama would never be re-elected, DADT would never be repealed, etc.

So much for your prognosticating abilities.

UNTRUE.

The curent administration has even said that there is nothing in the law that allows the IRS to do that.

Furthermore, the easiest way to kill OBAMACARE is for the House Of Representatives to simply refuse to fund any and all parts of it. The House controls the nation's pursestrings.

The long and the short of it is that a politician is engaged in a popularity contest, and can't afford to alienate any vote. Equality is coming because it is what the Constitution demands.

Leviticus 19:18
New International Version (NIV)
18 “‘Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD.

Colossians 1:16
New International Version
For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.

Galatians 3:28
New International Version
There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

Romans 13:1-5
English Standard Version (ESV)
Submission to the Authorities
13 Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. 2 Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, 4 for he is God's servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God's wrath on the wrongdoer. 5 Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God's wrath but also for the sake of conscience.

Another bogus Obamacare story: The GOP's 'Bette'

Bette was an otherwise unidentified Washington state resident featured in the official GOP response to the Obama speech delivered by Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.). According to Rodgers, Bette had written her a letter stating that she had "hoped the president’s healthcare law would save her money – but found out instead that her premiums were going up nearly $700 a month." The lesson, according to Rodgers: "This law is not working."…

Grenier told the newspaper that she wrote Rodgers after her insurance company informed her that her $552-a-month catastrophic health plan would not be offered in 2014. It offered her an alternative plan complying with the ACA at $1,052 a month.

Grenier said she had flatly refused to even investigate her options on the exchange. "I wouldn’t go on that Obama website at all,” she said.“We liked our old plan. It worked for us, but they can’t offer it anymore.”

Instead, she and her husband "have decided to go without coverage," the newspaper reported. Does this make sense? Grenier deliberately decided to forgo the options available to her and her family from the Affordable Care Act, despite the knowledge that they might be more suitable for her than her old insurance or the plan being hawked by her insurer -- she says a friend of hers found a plan for a mere $129 a month.
