Even if the numbers were anywhere near correct no one believes a word out of the President's mouth. He has lied so much the truth isn't in the man. Besides if they were not lying don't you think they would be quoting the numbers of those who have paid. If I go to a car lot, and pick out a car, but do not pay for it, I didn't buy the car. Why is ObamaScam any different? Over half of those signed up in Georgia have not paid. That is just one state we can prove they lied about. Do the Democrats not know we can check these numbers out? Lying just makes them look stupid.

Well... it's settled then; Responsibility got to keep his doctor, so all is right with the world and detractors should just move on.

What a pathetic, narrow-minded, self-centered, useful idiot [ir]Responsibility.

Most of the country think Obama lies. Why would anyone pay attention to what he says anymore?

Isn't it great to watch the tea-baggers twist and spin in the wind as their worst fears (OBAMACARE being a complete success) come true, LOL... 9 million and counting; maybe the Bundy welfare cattle will be cooked as their last meal before they commit mass suicide, LOL!

So the clown who authored this story doesn't believe including individuals under18 should qualify in the overall count.
How ridicolus is that? They're paying subscibers and as such should be tallied with their parents. After all medical care coverage for children isn't free in America.
Who, after reading this is stupid enought to follow along this corrupt line of thinking? Even the most intellectual ineffective in America shouldn't fall for this propaganda.

WASHINGTON (AP)-- The Internal Revenue Service has paid more than $2.8 million in bonuses to employees with recent disciplinary problems, including $1 million to workers who owed back taxes, a government investigator said Tuesday.

More than 2,800 workers got bonuses despite facing a disciplinary action in the previous year, including 1,150 who owed back taxes, said a report by J. Russell George, the Treasury inspector general for tax administration. The bonuses were awarded from October 2010 through December 2012.

George's report said the bonus program doesn't violate federal regulations, but it's inconsistent with the IRS mission to enforce tax laws.
Other examples of misconduct by workers getting bonuses included misusing government credit cards for travel, drug use, violent threats and fraudulently claiming unemployment benefits.

The interesting thing about success is that it needs no spinning. Lies need spinning, like the majority of posts above mine.

You the man Larry. I mean taxpayers only spent a measly $600million on just the website to get 7 million to visit. Liberals said there were 30 million people allegedly without health insurance, instead of a website we could have given each one $2million and had them buy their own insurance. Instead we had opted to have taxpayers subsidize the insurance industry. A truly progressive success.
