I listen to NPR today and got annoyed a little. So when you sign up on the front end, you aren't really signed up yet... A batch cycle has to run and send your data to the health care companies... Why is this not real time?? I pray there was a good reason for this... Trying to rationalize this in my head.

To be clear not only is the front end screwed, but if they don't address the back end then it will be worse... Man, every developer on this project will have to leave their experience blank for the time they were building this site.

Whether or not it works or fails isn't what makes it a failure of government. The fact that the government had to lie to the people to get it passed and then rushed it to live status to preserve a political position instead of waiting and doing what's right for the people, that's why it's a failure of the government..

Here's a link that includes an audio clip of him supporting the individual mandate back in 2009:

http://www.theatlant...ay-2009/252233/

And here is him in 1993 supporting Obamacare:

Again, requiring of INSURANCE of all americans is NOT the Freakin subject NOR a problem. Its the Govt taking over the industry, managing it thru their SICK twisted activist groups(website, Acorn) etc. You libs are seeing this calamity for what it is and are desperate to say, Romney and Newt and everyone else, blah, blah, without a comparison of plans.

Here's a newsflash. WE, the PEOPLE are tired of ever growing govt and WE the PEOPLE are sick and tired of working our ***** off so 48% of the population can sit on theirs and collect welfare. We the PEOPLE will NOT tolerate abuse of POWER and LYING by the executive branch and WE THE FREAKIN PEOPLE are going to take back our country.

Um...ACORN no longer exists. blink.png

So now you're okay with the individual mandate? That's no longer a part of Obamacare that you oppose?

I believe People should have Insurance, paid by them, and THEIR responsibility. I am NOT going to pay for others way in life. That idea is NOT a provocative idea. OBAMACARE as written into law will kill this country and wait till the economy goes down the tubes because People pay a mortgage for healthcare along with all their other bills. It will dry up money worse then you can imagine.

Dude, just stop the deceit and dishonesty. Acorn, just changed their name. WRONG AGAIN. http://www.washingto...ffiliate-names/

And a month after that article was written, they shut all of their doors:

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/03/23/us/23acorn.html?_r=0

Your article doesn't say that they changed their name, it says that their affiliates broke off and became independent. I'm not sure how a group that ceased to exist three years ago can have taken over insurance companies.

But whatever, are you now okay with the individual mandate? Is that acceptable policy to you now?

So you are okay with government requiring people to purchase insurance?

Another lie or just a broken promise?

We should organize a "Log On to Healthcare.gov Day" on January 1st to test just how well the website can handle traffic.

Can the Supreme Court strike down a law that is impossible to comply with? If millions can't get health insurance, how can they punish you for it? What if the Democrats decide that every citizen of the US has to buy a unicorn or must pay a penalty tax?

Now we're starting to see the damage to public opinion about Obamacare that the negative media coverage has caused over the past several weeks:

Quinnipiac University Poll. Nov. 6-11, 2013. N=2,545 registered voters nationwide. Margin of error ± 1.9.

"Do you support or oppose the health care law passed by Barack Obama and Congress in 2010?"

11/11/2013

Support - Oppose: 38-55%

Compare that to about two months ago...

9/23/2013

Support - Oppose: 45-47%

MEDICAID FOR AL-QAEDA? Obamacare Flaw Allows Anyone on Earth to Fraudulently Enroll Through Healthcare.gov

Obama's easing of the non-citizen Medicaid enrollment process opens up Medicaid to being overwhelmed by fraud. This problem is compounded by the Navigator/Assister program being on the "honor system," and the scores of troubling Navigators/Assisters appearing on Healthcare.gov. (Also today, James O'Keefe reveals the inevitable results of this situation with an undercover sting operation.)

Though a sideshow throughout Obamacare’s passage and litigation, Medicaid’s pivotal role in President Obama’s health care reform effort has become apparent following the law’s October 1 implementation. In many states, Medicaid enrollment through the Healthcare.gov portal is dwarfing the number of “private” insurance plan purchases.

While this development represents a major financial threat to the survival of Obamacare, new regulations established by Obamacare to cover Medicaid enrollment have created a major threat to the United States’ ability to administrate that far larger benefit program.

Following is a summary of the problem:

While troubling, final approval of fraudulent applications represents a lesser element of the problem regarding non-citizen enrollment. The greater concern is initial approval:

  • Applicants attempting to register for Medicaid as non-citizens by using Healthcare.gov will have their identification checked in real-time by the SAVE (Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements) database. But if SAVE verification fails, the applicant is not prevented from enrolling in Medicaid/CHIP.
  • In fact, the opposite occurs: the applicant is likely enrolled in Medicaid immediately.
  • The applicant is then given a 90-day period to clear up the identification problem.
  • This “enroll first, confirm later” regulation, combined with the ACA’s easing of verification requirements, allows anyone, from a computer anywhere in the world, to successfully auto-enroll for 90 days of Medicaid by entering fraudulent information about being a certain category of legal alien living in the United States.
  • There is no guarantee that state governments will take action to cancel these enrollments at the end of each application’s 90-day period if identification is never provided. The cancellation of unverified enrollments is left to each state’s available manpower and political will.
  • At the end of the 90-day period, if states do indeed ask the applicant to produce identification or to have the enrollment canceled, the applicant is allowed to ask for an extension of the 90-day period. The applicant can get the period extended for significantly longer.
  • Obamacare does not allow any information entered into Healthcare.gov to be used for legal action against illegal immigrants. Like “catch and release,” an applicant could attempt to fraudulently enroll repeatedly.
  • Foreign entities looking to flood the Medicaid rolls with fraudulent auto-enrollments are, of course, beyond U.S. prosecution and able to cause such chaos.
  • An organized effort by domestic or foreign entities to create countless numbers of these fraudulent enrollments could challenge Medicaid with an unsolvable administrative situation.

yeah, maybe if the media were more skeptical when the law was being discussed/written - than waiting until its an obvious failure - that would have been more helpful. Of course, the media took 2008-2010 off while we elected a man no one knew to implement policies America was skeptical of but no one fully understood.

complete lack of curiousity of the media....

Ah...more of this!

'When the media says what I want, they're doing a good job!'

'When the media says what I don't like, they're doing a terrible job!'

Never mind that 'the media' is just a fabrication.
