How do I constantly create straw men?

But you're right - I won't resort to that again. Pretty clear reality is hitting those who bought the snake oil.

You've done it a lot in this thread.

If you expected the full reality to be apparent in a month, then your expectations are totally unrealistic.

I don't recall doing that a lot in this thread. And there are plenty of people trying to act like all is well. I mean, did you watch Sebelius in front of the review board? Have you listened to the President? I'm not aiming anything at you or anyone on a message board. You seem invested but at least realistic.

Um...forcing people to buy insurance form privately owned companies is about as far from socialism as it gets. Maybe you should read a book.

you are clueless - the Federal Government is in the Healthcare business - they nudged their way in on the most partisan piece of legislation in the history of governance. The Feds control healthcare so much that 93 million people will be out of their current healthcare plan by the time the dust settles (2015) from people/families with private plans and, once the year elapses and the small business healthcare plans start getting cancelled.

The government controls everything about the industry because of Obamacare - they control the coverages, they will dictate the reimbursements to a large degree - they control everything - the fact that the insurers are allowed to continue at this point - is simply an inconvenient annoyance to the left. The Feds goal is to dictate the insurers out of business through control/regulation and they won't stop until there is red ink on the books of most of the insurers - while this goes on, the left will continue to demonize the insurance companies and the longer range plan is single payer - anyone who thinks otherwise is naive and cannot see past 10 feet in front of themselves.

Funny gesture

Things that people call simple can cost $1M without even trying. Not saying it's right, just saying it's not as simple as people would think. I think they spent too much, but if they had to build a place to store the data, then 600M might have been the right number.

If you guys could understand and see some of the code powering these financial sites, you might be scared.

#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

int main(){

cout >> "You can't even comprehend basic English, let alone code complex algorithms in C++." << endl;

return 0;

}

You should have heard the b!tch fit I raise when I go through 2k line method in Java... Now piecing that together with cyclomatic complexities in the 100s... Yeah no thanks.

Not happening... 5M lines of code that is basically in a different language than you understand... Yeah that sounds destined for success!

better:

How about you give me $250k and I'll give you a website that works just as well as the current one?

It'll probably only take me a week to figure out how to sign up 6 people.

I just looked at the website for the first time. I was actually surprised that it wasn't as high as I expected. The most expensive plan (Platinum) was under $900 per month. I saw an article where this family said they were paying $10k more than what they pay now. That's only $10,800 per year. Does it vary that much across the country?!?

P.S. That was for a family of 4...
