BIG difference between campaign rhetoric, discussions, ideas and the actual practical application.

That's why I laugh at universal health care or single payer. How many doctors will even stay in business or how will more patients affect the current level of care?

Some say rationing will be the problem but wait time would be the big problem. And how many would accept the fact the government would have a say in your health care wether it be resources & funding or physical care.

This should be a public OPTION only, not a mandate.

It was all done as a 'parliamentary rule', the bargains were written for lawyers and explain the holdup in starting an impeachment investigation, or is that only the IMPEACHMENT TRIAL ??
No 'dollar estimate' has been given governance by CRISIS.

They need to get those glitches fixed immediately… millions of Americans are waiting to get affordable health coverage. President Obama and the American people deserves better from those who was placed in charge of the rollout.

Right, pretend jarhead..........LMAO They're lining up around the blocks!!

Sebelius and her colleagues within the administration aren't disclosing actual signups as it's quite possible that number is very small in relation to those that either don't have insurance or are shopping for lower premiums thereby making this rollout a total flop.

Poor, poor, poor Sebelius, you just can't "pull off" your lies as well as Obama. You are the arbiter of life and death decisions, and you don't know "jack."

The 'Glitches' could be fixed if they sent headhunters to Apple, Google, and his other fundraisers. Paying cheap off the street doesn't work, we thought he learned already with ACORN.

Must depend on which state one is from. In my
state, thousands of people have signed up
without a hitch.

But, we don't have a Republican administration
trying to sabotage the process.

The Republicans have been sabotaging the economy
five years. It stands to reason that they would
be sabotaging the Affordable Care Act too.

and hes also frustrated that so many people are not listening to him and him only, like he has told us to do. just the other day, he made a speech in which he pointed at us and lectured us to do that. He may have to volunteer to be a write in candidate in 2016 so that he can finish the job he started, to fundamentally change this country. He'll need your help libs, be sure to write his name in on your ballots

Sebelius on the Run
The HHS Secretary refuses to testify about ObamaCare's rollout.
Oct. 18, 2013 7:04 p.m. ET
The Affordable Care Act's botched rollout has stunned its media cheering section, and it even seems to have surprised the law's architects. The problems run much deeper than even critics expected, and whatever federal officials, White House aides and outside contractors are doing to fix them isn't working. But who knows? Omerta is the word of the day as the Obama Administration withholds information from the public.
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is even refusing to testify before the House Energy and Commerce Committee in a hearing this coming Thursday. HHS claims she has scheduling conflicts, but we hope she isn't in the White House catacomb under interrogation by Valerie Jarrett about her department's incompetence.
The department is also refusing to make available lower-level officials who might detail the source or sources of this debacle. Ducking an investigation with spin is one thing. Responding with a wall of silence to the invitation of a duly elected congressional body probing the use of more than half a billion taxpayer dollars is another. This Obama crowd is something else.
What bunker is Henry Chao hiding in, for instance? He's the HHS official in charge of technology for the Affordable Care Act, and in March he said at an insurance lobby conference that his team had given up trying to create "a world-class user experience." With the clock running, Mr. Chao added that his main goal was merely to "just make sure it's not a third-world experience."

He didn't succeed. Whatever is below third-world standards would flatter the 36 federally run exchanges as they've started up. But perhaps Mr. Chao or someone else, if not Mrs. Sebelius, can answer even the simple question of how many Americans have managed to enroll for coverage.
Do you blame her? Who wants to defend Ostupida's latest hot turd?
