In 4 days Obama will have to step up, and explain why the Healthcare.Gov site isn't up, and ready, and while I am on the subject I would like to know how some man signed up his dog, when most people can't get on. Is this for veterinary insurance.

You tea-baggers will never get why you can’t win against President Obama… why he continues to bludgeon you with his political chess board… why even when you think you have him and so strongly believe you are about to beat him he comes away holding your decapitated head by the hair…

WHY YOU SHOULD NEVER BET AGAINST BLACK…

Because he is Barack Hussein Obama, President of the United States.

The American people, even when disappointed with something about him deep down trust him (even when polls say they don’t) and see the racist obstructionism that you right-wing haters have pushed against him since Limbaugh bellowed “I hope he fails”. You lost everything the minute Obama won in 2008. There are a lot of reports coming out about the OBAMACARE website working and so many great stories about people getting affordable health care…
Hope you tea-baggers prepared to lose another one to Obama… again, LOL!

Explains why the country is on the fast track backwards. More people on welfare, more living in poverty, more working minimum wage jobs, yep, falling fast to third world country status.

Thanks barack.

Seems appropriate. There is nothing more offensive than Obamacare.
Even Obama won't implement. He's given waivers and delays to big business, but for the common people, the middle class and poor, he insists on everything being done on time. It doesn't matter that his web site won't let you sign up. You must sign up on time anyway. That's only a few weeks folks.
It doesn't matter that the policy you thought you'd keep is no longer available. It doesn't matter that the cost of the policy is now out of reach, especially since you are still looking for a full time job. You must pay.

67% of the people who had healthcare insurance liked their plan. What do you thing they will do when not only do they lose their plan, but the Government plan is more costly, and the Deductible is more then anyone could pay. They are going to run to vote Republican. Happy days are here again!!! Would you vote for a party that destroyed your health care? I thought not.

Patti you always bring race into the mix when it comes to Obama, why? If you didn't know he is 1/2 white, 1/4 Arab and 1/4 black. Playing the race card like you do only proves a few things,1)you know that Obama is unfit to serve as president. 2)You can't defend him unless you, along with the rest of the progressive loons scream racism to detract from his failures and his anti-American agendas. 3) You are the one that is the racist and won't admit it. I'll bet all three fits your profile.

Read and weep:

Jason Noble, 44, who has his own property management firm in Southern California, found a gold plan that will cover his wife and their three children--a daughter, 9, and 5-year-old twins--for a little less than $1,300 a month. That's slightly more than they'd be paying next year for their existing Blue Shield plan, but the benefits are much greater, including pediatric dental coverage. Their family deductible will fall from $3,400 to zero. Last year, the family had a health scare that ran them $1,800 in out-of-pocket expenses; a similar event next year would cost them nothing. "It's definitely a good deal," Noble says.

Read and weep:

Last summer Ellen Holzman and Meredith Vezina, a married gay couple in San Diego County, got kicked off their long-term Kaiser health plan, for which they'd been paying more than $1,300 a month. The cause wasn't the Affordable Care Act, as far as they knew. They'd been living outside Kaiser's service area, and the health plan had decided to tighten its rules. Through Covered California, the state's individual insurance marketplace, they've found a plan through Sharp Healthcare that will cover them both for a total premium of $142 a month, after a government subsidy based on their income. They'll have a higher deductible than Kaiser's but lower co-pays. But their possible savings will be impressive.

Last summer Ellen Holzman and Meredith Vezina, a married gay couple in San Diego County, got kicked off their long-term Kaiser health plan, for which they'd been paying more than $1,300 a month. The cause wasn't the Affordable Care Act, as far as they knew. They'd been living outside Kaiser's service area, and the health plan had decided to tighten its rules.
That's when they discovered the chilly hazards of dependence on the individual health insurance market. When they applied for a replacement policy with Anthem Blue Cross of California, Ellen, 59, disclosed that she might have carpal tunnel syndrome. She wasn't sure--her condition was still being diagnosed by Kaiser when her coverage ended. But the possibility was enough to scare Anthem. "They said,'We will not insure you because you have a pre-existing condition,'" Holzman recalls.
But they were lucky, thanks to Obamacare. Through Covered California, the state's individual insurance marketplace, they've found a plan through Sharp Healthcare that will cover them both for a total premium of $142 a month, after a government subsidy based on their income. They'll have a higher deductible than Kaiser's but lower co-pays. But their possible savings will be impressive.

After weeks of stories about website crashes and canceled health plans – and an extraordinary mea culpa from President Obama – a competing story line is starting to emerge. Slowly but surely, people are navigating the exchanges and getting insurance – for some, cheaper and better than what they had. Last week, The New York Times and Los Angeles Times touted a “surge” in enrollment figures, especially in states that have their own exchanges.

From a retired business owner in Arkansas to a young freelance filmmaker in Hollywood, Eleanor Clift highlights a few of the people the media has found who are happy to have Obamacare.
The White House is getting hammered for the rocky rollout of Obamacare, but around the country news outlets are reporting a more positive story as Americans of various ages and from all walks of life look into what the newly launched program has to offer.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution tells the story of Lissie Stahlman, 60, who credits “a combination of patience, luck and different platforms” for getting her through the system late last week after trying for three weeks. She says she saved 50 percent over her current premiums and cut her deductible in half from $5,000 to $2,500.

OMG, you found less then 20 success stories among the 100,000,000 of people who are without healthcare now due to Obama, and you want to pretend all is well. Are you insane? Even Democrats that voted for this mess are going to jump ship if it isn't up, and running December 1st. You just keep finding those little stories, and I know you wouldn't lie about those people would you? I tell you what, when they appear on Fox I will believe them, Otherwise, not so much. You people lie for Obama too often.

If it was broken then, what is it now that over FIVE MILLION Americans and counting have already lost their health insurance after Obama lied? Just admit that Obamacare is a dismal failure instead of looking like a retarded clown defending a joke, blithering idiot. You libtards don't even have the common sense of a billy goat.

Get a grip on r5eality you idiot. you keep saying 100 million, more than once, which is almost 1/3rd of this country's population.

80% of those who already have health insurance through their employer will NOT BE AFFECTED YOU JACKASS!

Less than 5% of those ON A PRIVATE INSURANCE POLICY WILL BE AFFECTED!!

God, you are dumb - but admitting you believe what Faux tells you says mountains as to the stupid people they pander to.

All employers move every year as they search for cheaper plans to cover their employees - always have, always will.

That is right, one hundred million people are losing their coverage, and we haven't even started counting the losses from small business policies. Do you never read a paper, listen to the news? Even CNN, and MSNBC are beginning to tell the awful truth about Obamascam.
