    Re: It's offical Obamacare enrollment is low.

    Do you like paying for people without insurance when they need it unforeseen??
    Are you a PPACA scofflaw as well as a 16th amendment scofflaw??
    are we in a holding pattern until the 2014 election due to TEAprimaries ?

    Here's the problem, and it isn't how slow people sign sign up compared to or in way related to Romneycare: If enough young healthy people do not sign up in the time required, the overall cost of insurance for the rest of us will skyrocket.

    It has nothing to do with whether people like or support the ACA or not, but rather whether the purpose of the law, to lower health costs, will actually come to light. SO far, all costs have gone up. The law is having the exact opposite effect it was sold as having.

    If costs go up, why have this law?

    Changes needed to be made in our health care insurance system, like eliminating preexisting condition exemptions, but this law isn't working and will not given its current structure.

    Are you used to Social Security??
    Did you listen to President Clinton describe what a disaster the roll-out was for Medicare part D??
    Alas, we have a different standard for BHO as we have since Feb. 2009 .

    What does my disapproval of paying more have to do with anything? People shouldn't be forced to buy services just because I happen to disagree with certain things they do or fail to do. Furthermore, you're talking about a consequence of government policy.

    I haven't a clue what the second or third question means.

    It should however be noted that the only reason you want them to buy insurance is because you know it will lower your costs. Sorry, but keep your selfish government coercion away from people.

    Even this lowly Canadian knows that people eligible for Medicare aren't part of the ACA numbers. Perhaps instead of shopping for health insurance you should go shopping for a clue.

    Re: It's offical Obamacare enrollment is low.

    Compare 43 days on PPACA to 43 days on Social Security--no computers--1/3 the people--I'm still glad to be on the correct side of history--as president Clinton said--it is good we have PPACA--can't w3ait till we see the bill from the House--they can't pass anything can they..It's election-mode here on out--jcj..

    There are some Tax Rebel groups who will tell you the IRS lacks the authority to force anyone to
    pay taxes. That minor technicality does not stop them from destroying peoples lives.
    I can assure you a "nasty letter" from the IRS bears the same intimidation factor as the Spanish inquisition.
    The only difference is that the torture is financial and mental.

    I'm not a "rightist" - if anything you are not me....

    I'm not the one defending authoritarian ideas while claiming to be "liberal."

    I don't know why every "liberal" in this world believes they have the right to tell me what I need to do and what values I should hold and that it's the governments responsibility to enforce their fascism (your ideas/progressive ideas) on me.

    You're on the right buddy - not me....
