Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
It's not a matter of responsibility. Should people be required to insure against every possible fate that could befall them? Should they also prioritize these products over their everyday needs?
It's stupid to insure yourself against medical costs when you can't feed yourself or keep a roof over your head. It's even stupider for the government to tell you what to prioritize.
And the arrogance of all of this...Pelosi, and others out there saying that it's a success? Touting "unique visits" what the hell is that? They are even going as far as to try and pull a slight of hand and say that it's rolling out just fine because 500K people have filled out the application? Look, people know when they are being conned, I hope anyway...The way this website is set up, you must fill out the application just to look at the plans....So, how many have filled out the application, means NOTHING!
Then speaking of arrogance, with all these problems, congress wants to talk with Sebilus, and what is her response? A big fat "No, I don't have time for you".... "I have a Gala in Boston to attend"....What the hell?
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
