    Obama care is going to need enrollment in the tens of millions by Dec 15 or it will be a bust. more then half of those tens of millions will need to be young and healthy to keep the premiums where they are at, or the price will have to be raised even higher then they already are
    Are you saying that the US Government launched a program and it didn't go perfectly? It is enough to make a truther wonder how the US Government carried out 9/11 with such unerring precision.

    Women were actually a whole person for purposes of counting population for representation in Congress. Slaves were 3/5ths. I think free blacks were also a whole person, but didn't necessarily have voting rights. Although I'm not clear on the law and it may have varied by state.

    actually enrollment in the exchanges have been an ongoing Dilemma in Massachusetts, where they still lack the number of healthy, full paying adults to make them sustainable

    That's a problem, given that the government isn't allowed to force people to buy insurance beyond imposing taxes which they can't use force to collect.

    States at least have the advantage of a general police power. They could actually arrest people for not buying insurance if they wanted to.

    Wonder why it is that Obamabots continue to buy the Obama rhetoric and ignores that the rhetoric is nothing but downright campaign lies.

You see it is ok to murder an unborn baby, ok to inhale or interject drugs into your body, ok to demand that someone else pay for your personal responsibility issues but only in the liberal world.

    Told you the story about offering healthcare to my 1200 employees and how 50% of them opted into the program. What should I have done to force the other 50% to opt in? You see, they know there are no consequences for being stupid in today's world because some liberal will create a program to save them from their own poor

    Why does any liberal care what a hip replacement costs? Why do you really care if someone in my state is insured or not? Why don't you and others always get so uptight about issues that don't concern you and why don't you stop trying to legislate equal outcome and personal responsibility issues?.
    Why does your post seem to not address mine?

    The answer to these questions in your third paragraph, incidentally, is empathy. Try it some time. But before you go thinking I'm trying to pass myself off as some kind of saint, I should point out that I'm subject to the same system. If I can make it work better for you, I'm making it work better for me too.

    I might need a new hip some day, dude. So yeah, the TEN THOUSAND ****ING PERCENT markup concerns me.

    Maybe we can get a hip replacement together, my current insurance handles it and there is no wait time. The problem is there isn't any Federal program that provides better service and lower costs, I would have thought someone of your intelligence would know that.

    I guess you didn't understand that part of the Constitution. Most liberals don't get most of it anyway.

    Gee, I could have sworn ACA was contested by conservative drones all the way to the Supreme Court, where they lost. Oh I forgot, conservatives don't recognize judicial review as the way to determine constitutionality. Rather, they think Breitbart should decide. Crank constitutional theories -- conservatives are soaking in it.

    Re: Enrollment In Obamacare's Federal Exchange, So Far, May Only Be In 'Single Digits

    I wouldn't exactly call it a loss. Two major precedents were established by the ACA decision: first, the government could not regulate non-commerce, and second, the government could not force states to do things on penalty of having already appropriated money taken away.

    There are other parts of the law which are being challenged in court, such as the contraception mandate and subsidies in states that did not set up exchanges.

    So yeah, the law will stand, but many aspects of it were unconstitutional and more will likely be found and stripped from the law.
