    Good thing huh? Since the software is screwed up.

    No, but the liberals did. Oh wait, that's you. You know how many millions were wasted on this?

    it has been eight days since the healthcare exchanges went online, i think it is too early to be making any pronouncements of success or failure.

    I don't think you have a clue what our Founders created in this country and show up as a typical brainwashed individual who buys what our street thug from Chicago says. He is making a fool out of you.
    Some powers are delegated to the states and others to the federal government. It's pretty clear that America has always functioned that way. For you to wish for only state government to function is not consistent with the opinion of almost any of the founding fathers. The federal government in this day and age has too much oversight, just like your boss might micromanage, but that's something that we're to blame for. We supposedly are their bosses, but don't act that way.

    There is no such thing as a utopia, but when it comes to health care, my thinking is pretty simple. Take me: either I don't have insurance, and I would now owe about $200,000 for various medical services. I can not pay that back, which is bad for everybody else and myself, or I can have insurance and the system is in place to prevent that loss, which is better for everybody involved. For all of the people like me, we can have them sick and in so much debt they will be struggling to pay back the money their entire lives or they will simply not pay it back. Otherwise, we can have a system that prevents them from having to endure this. You may call this selfish, I call it practical. What's more, I believe it will work, and I don't think having a system that prevents people from becoming both sick and in massive debt is a negative thing in any way. Your thinking is so hopelessly twisted that at this point it's a cartoon, it's like a sunday morning editorial page illustration of what only the most disgustingly partisan and right wing Republicans "think." I put that in quotations because almost nobody thinks so blindly and without logic or purpose. Your only goal seems to be to lash out at anybody who isn't you and I'm very glad that you are a tiny minority and will have to watch this country do things to help others while you sit back and stew about it. That gives me real pleasure.

    Don't see mandatory healthcare in the Constitution delegated to the Federal Govt. Don't see marriage in the Constitution delegated to the Federal Govt, see duplications in the EPA and NLRB, Education, Commerce, Labor, Energy taken by the Federal Govt. but also expenses at the state level. I don't see social programs delegated to the Federal Govt. by the Constitution only that being created by the Federal Bureaucrats.

    No such thing as Utopia? Tell that to the liberal elites who are trying to create it. The point on insurance is you don't need a Federal mandate to get you insurance. What ACA is going to do is force businesses out of their private insurance funds onto Obamacare and the exchanges and that is going to get liberals to what they really want, a single payer system.

    You are dreaming if you believe this federally mandated program is going to work. There has yet to be a federal social program that cost what it was supposed to cost, lowered actual costs, and provided better service. Why is this any different? There are 312 million Americans in 50 separate states all being administered from D.C. that makes no sense.

    I lash out at no one, I spent 35 years in the business world, employed over 1200 employees, offered complete healthcare coverage to all employees and got 50% sign up. You cannot force people in a private sector economy to do what they don't want to do. I have the logic, common sense, and experience that you don't have. Doesn't appear that I am in a tiny minority as support for Obamacare is very low and I have posted those results over and over again. It is time for people to take personal responsibility for their actions. Healthcare is a personal responsibility and if you cannot pay your bills an expense at the state level, not the Federal level so why ACA?

    And? What exactly does that mean, do you think?
