    re: Report: Obamacare got six enrollees on Day 1 [W:89]

    Why is it that racism and hate for Obama always trumps the obvious need this ACA is soon going to fulfill for so many people who have done without or even bankrupted for want of affordable insurance.

    Do the haters and racists have no human decency at all?

    That's when you had people with the Right Stuff. Now there's Barrack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. It's just pathetic.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Most likely just another lie by the racists and haters on the political right. But even so, if it was the truth and the racists are trying to celebrate it, what does that tell everybody about their agenda of hate?

    You nailed it. And once over half the country gets accustomed to free stuff, from farmers who don't farm to food stamp recipients who spend it on drugs, only those who are paying for this system will want it to change. And they will not have the numbers.

    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    It was a different time then, no doubt. You won't get an argument from me about our current leadership (on both sides of the aisle) failing us at every possible turn.

    My point was that declaring the whole thing a failure based on one day is silly. Let's at least see if it does fail before saying that.

    RealClearPolitics - Election Other - Public Approval of Health Care Law

    More people dislike O-care, than support it.

    How about these people, are they just 'teabagger, racists' also?

    “This isn’t about pointing fingers. This is about providing some relief to the folks we represent who are facing serious uncertainty because they’re being forced to buy something that’s not ready,” Barrow said. “I urge my colleagues and the administration to delay the individual mandate. It’s not only the right thing to do, it’s the only practical thing to do.”
    Some Democratic lawmakers are still praising the president’s signature healthcare plan, but they’ve turned their frustration toward the botched rollout and are venting about how it could hurt their constituents’ ability to access healthcare.
    Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., asked President Obama to extend the open enrollment period beyond the current date of March 31, 2014, until the website glitches are fixed, arguing that the problems have dampened people’s ability to sign up for the exchanges.
    “As website glitches persist, we are losing valuable time to educate and enroll people in insurance plans. I also fear that people that have tried, and failed, to enroll online may become frustrated and not return to the website to try again at a later date,” Shaheen wrote in a letter to the president Tuesday. “Allowing extra time for consumers is critically important so they have the opportunity to become familiar with the website, survey their options and enroll.”
    Sen. Mark Pryor, D-Ark., who like Shaheen is up for re-election in 2014, announced his support for the New Hampshire senator’s call to extend open enrollment in the exchanges and asked the administration to clarify how it would enforce the individual mandate.
    “I read Senator Shaheen’s letter today and support the common sense idea to extend the date for open enrollment. I believe, given the technical issues, it makes sense to extend the time for people to sign up,” Pryor said in a statement Wednesday. “In addition, the Administration should state clearly how the enforcement mechanism will work if people can’t sign up in time. We all want to see the law work, and I hope the Administration will take a hard look at this reasonable suggestion.”
    Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.V., is working on a bill that would delay the $95 individual mandate penalty, a spokesman for Manchin said Wednesday.

    Not sure if you are responding to American's post about SNL or not, but if you are and you think that SNL is on the "political right" then you really are not of this planet....
