    One of the biggest problems as I see it. This law was passed by those who assumed people, companies, everyone and everything wouldn't change their habits or the way they do things. When dealing with something this big and sweeping, people adjust, change habits, so to do companies, they don't continue to do things their old ways when the rules of the game has changed. No one can take everything or anticipate how people will react in the future when everything they knew and were use to has changed, is gone, no longer there. Yep, the law of unintended consequences certainly does apply. Murphy is alive and well, as in Murphy's law.
    Look at Florida.....they are leading the Way. Rubio is toast.

There is a clear disconnect there, from what I can see. What's likely going to happen is that everyone who has insurance or gets insurance is going to see it climb dramatically until such time as the tax/fine becomes higher than the cost of insurance.
    I'll wait and see. but the theory seems sound.
    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.

    Not only can you not prove what you just said, you are saying that numbers that
    Republikans agreed upon today are not true, just going back to the liar-in-chief meme..

    And they will only get better each day, the GOP's greatest nightmare .
    You're absolutely right. I've been looking at a number of sites that are saying the exchange number should be closer to 1.5M since that's the number that have signed up to see what plans are available. On those sites the consensus seems to be that when Nov. numbers are released we'll see 1M plus new signups.

    I should add, as a caveat, that those sites are DU and DK.

    And we know they can't do a farm or transportation bill..

    The machinations of the Congress are all interrelated..
    They are not related.

    As a matter of fact, the Dems held up hundreds of Bush's nominations for multiple political reasons. Both parties use the same tactics. It's called political brinksmanship.

    It made sense to me for standing firm on all the deadlines to include opening the enrollment date with a bum website. Pressure from those who went along with this.

    Do you think I'm making it fail, by hoping? Frankly I think you pulling the lever for Obama had more to do with failure.
