    Hits don't mean s--t.
    Every time you try it's a hit. That's happening.
    If you bail when you find how much it'll cost it's a hit. That's happening.
    Enrollments are what counts.
    I've seen it said that 40% of the folks calling are expecting free healthcare.
    Could it be that this POS was designed to fail so that the suggested remedy will be single payer Government run healthcare ... but as we all know, Obama said "... we may not get there immediately"

    No way you say?

    "When then asked by panelist Steve Sebelius whether he meant ultimately the country would have to have a health care system that abandoned insurance as the means of accessing it, Reid said: “Yes, yes. Absolutely, yes.” " Or maybe someone wants to argue Reid never really said that either.

    Sure do. And what do those states have in common? If you guessed "States where people weren't even told what to do regarding the exchanges," you might be on to something.

    Hell, I live in New York, which is one of those liberal hippie communes, and most people I know have NO CLUE what to do regarding the exchanges.

    I don't doubt that single payer is the eventual goal. GOOD. We should have had it decades ago.

    makes you wonder if the LIE of free health care was told to the ignorant masses by the community centers and the Obama local lackeys across America to get them to vote for Obama again I guess the free Obama Phones wasn't enough of a bribe they needed to throw in free health care to sweeten the deal

    Funny. Every single mention of "free" health care I've seen has come from conservatives.

    It is a gross lack of integrity for the media and government to be stating "hits" as a measure of anything. They know full well it means nothing to get a "hit". One person can generate thousands of hits in a day by themselves, tens of thousands if they know how.

    How many people are signing up and how many aren't....that's the only measure. It's embarassing the complete lack of interest, and the media is running interference to that truth the best they can.

    Waiting for Cardiac Surgery

    0.7% of cardiac surgery patients (13 out of 1,854) at the QE2 Health Sciences Centre in Halifax.

    I have insurance through my employer. I'm looking into the exchanges to see if I can get a better rate, but I am in no rush.
