    I shutter to think how much money they have wasted letting some politician's brother-in-law have the contract for building this useless website.

    Why ? You're "glad" this Countries economy is hanging by a thread as millions of Americans struggle to make ends meet ?

    I do business with this company.. A LOT of business, in fact I sold them a slew of servers over the last two years. I never knew they were the company that held this contract.. Silly me, or I would have pushed deeper.. I feel dirty.

    If you believe this then you have first an observation deficit, then you are arithmetically challenged, since you are unable to understand arithmetic, you lack ability to comprehend what you couldn't arithmetically compare. Hence your comment is completely retarded ignorant idiocy, a full and complete reflection of you.

    HealthCare.gov pricing feature can be off the mark - CBS News

    But CBS News has learned the new "shop and browse" feature often comes with the wrong price tags.

    Industry analysts, such as Jonathan Wu, point to how the website lumps people only into two broad categories: "49 or under" and "50 or older."

    Wu said it's "incredibly misleading for people that are trying to get a sense of what they're paying."

    Prices for everyone in the 49-or-under group are based on what a 27-year-old would pay. In the 50-or-older group, prices are based on what a 50-year-old would pay.

    CBS News ran the numbers for a 48-year-old in Charlotte, N.C., ineligible for subsidies. According to HealthCare.gov, she would pay $231 a month, but the actual plan on Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina's website costs $360, more than 50 percent higher. The difference: Blue Cross and Blue Shield requests your birthday before providing more accurate estimates.

    The numbers for older Americans are even more striking. A 62-year-old in Charlotte looking for the same basic plan would get a price estimate on the government website of $394. The actual price is $634.
    Be wary of the new "browse for price" feature.

    It must have taken a while as well. She seems to have thought that using 'arithmetic' a few times made her appear intellectual.

    Says the talking points parrot, Obama-apologist who decided to lead with ad-hominum attacks and didn't directly address one thing I said.

    C'mon, if I'm so "challenged by arithmatic", you should have no problem challenging my assertions.

    It wasn't, it was actually standard fair from the likes of her ilk.

    Just a bunch of general nonsense and no attempt to address my points specifically.

    I actually wonder sometimes how many of these people are like that #natsecwonk guy...and what that says if they are. Sad.
