Americans do not want a more costly healthcare plan with a high deductible. The President is not facing reality. Now there are thousands of Doctors, and Hospitals that will not become part of this debacle.

That is exactly right Mr. President.

You right-wingers never get it, you always overplay your hand thinking that what is in front of you is the end all be all. You are the anti-Joshua computer from the 1980’s hit movie War Games, because you never learn from each scenario. The 2008 campaign when the Reverend Wright sermon was looped nonstop 24 hours on fox news seemed to be the bleak moment that Obama couldn’t recover from… and you guys celebrated with glee.

But again, you didn’t stop to think that the rollout of the website was just so dismal and pathetically embarrassing that when it started working at a decent capacity that it would be viewed as a major improvement? That people would start to talk about getting affordable health care for the first time… that President Obama will begin to mount a comeback…

Silly right-wing rabbits; tricks are for kids, LOL!

Do you live in a cave? I talk to people everyday, and the Obamascam is on everyone's lips, because it is so bad for everyone in the middle class. It hasn't gotten any better. It is not fixed. It will not be fixed by November 30th. Even Democrats are beginning to back away from their vote, and the President. You can't possibly be that stupid.

oh pattiecake, the website was never the problem, the people that got on and got their outlandish price quotes said the heck with a bad deal.
.
where you get the idea the 5 million insured in private plans that were cancelled are all right wingers, common demographics would make at least 60% democrats or liberal. But, continue with your cheerleading, the 80 million right wingers that will get their business provided plans cancelled next year of course will all be conservatives I guess because your guessing they are all right wingers means no democrats or liberals are employed.

Democrats voted for this fiasco with Obama. Now because they are afraid of losing their jobs, they are backing away. To bad Democrats, you wanted it, so you could cram it down everyone's throat, not a single Republican voted for it. It's yours and you can't pretend it isn't. So funny.

>> Only four out of 10 Americans believe President Barack Obama can manage the federal government effectively, according to a new national poll.

And a CNN/ORC International survey released Monday morning also indicates that 53% of Americans now believe that Obama is not honest and trustworthy, the first time that a clear majority in CNN polling has felt that way.

According to the survey, conducted last Monday through Wednesday, 40% say the President can manage the government effectively. That 40% figure is down 12 percentage points from June and is the worst score Obama received among the nine personal characteristics tested in the new poll.

In fact, Obama is plummeting across the board:

Obama’s woes are not limited to honesty and his managerial skills. Fifty-six percent say he is not a person they admire, and an equal number say he does not agree with them on important issues. Fifty-six percent also say he does not inspire confidence, and 53% don’t view him as a strong and decisive leader. All of those figures are all-time records for Obama in CNN polling.

Even Jimmy Carter, who was never a real good President, had America's respect, because he at least tried to govern. This President, Obama, lives in la la land. He thinks He really can walk on water, only now he is drowning. He purposely surrounded himself with "yes" people who will never tell him what a horrible job he is doing.

Unfortunately he is drowning a whole lot of people with him.

Sadly you clowns here beating up on the ACA probably never even attempted to sign in and look for yourselves.

Every state that has engaged with the ACA and has their sites up and running are doing fine. My savings wee astronomical from what I was previously paying - with no subsidies 9not entitled - make too much), my Silver Plan through Empire Blue Cross / Blue Shield is only $360.00 per month - and I'm over 50 and smoke!

Even if your figures are correct, that's still mostly Medicaid, etc. and a paltry percentage of people actually living in Kentucky. Plus, all plans are heralded as "State approved plans", which basically means people's freedom to choose their health care options are GONE.

>>According to several online security experts, Healthcare.gov , the portal where consumers in 35 states are being directed to obtain affordable health coverage, has a coding problem that could allow hackers to deploy a technique called "clickjacking," where invisible links are planted on a legitimate web page. Using this scheme, hackers could trick users into giving up personal data as they enter it into the web site, potentially placing Americans at risk of identity theft or allowing fraudsters to file bogus health care claims. And it's not just the federal exchange that has security problems. Some of the 15 states that have established their own online exchanges aren't using standard encryption throughout their Obamacare websites—leaving user information at risk.

First, this is a month + old - many issues were already addressed.

Secondly, you fail to cite key aspects of the article you supplied;

"Other parts of Obamacare's tech infrastructure are less vulnerable to attack. Although Healthcare.gov is at risk for clickjacking, sensitive information submitted through the website is not permanently stored in any centralized database (contrary to Republican fears), making it harder for hackers to steal Americans' data in bulk. Instead, user information is routed through a secure "data hub" to various federal agencies, including the Social Security Administration, where it can be double-checked and verified. Then private insurance companies are directly notified that a consumer has signed up and selected a health care plan.

Experts say that the federal data hub that routes information to federal agencies is fairly secure. "A successful attack against Healthcare.gov would likely be a very well organized and financed attack and be spectacular because it would be so hard and thus so unlikely," says Christopher Budd, threat communications manager for Trend Micro. Chris Rasmussen, policy analyst for the Center for Democracy and Technology, agrees that the hub is "encrypted and secure."

Lastly, look at the link before continuing - "https" is a secure site. I look at all sites where any personal information goes prior to entering anything.
