    Are people currently using Obamacare for their health care needs, or is it still just sign-up time? I don't know anybody to ask.
    The way I understand it and I could be totally off, if you wanted your insurance to kick by 1 January 2014, you had to register on the government web site no later than 20 December 2013 and have paid for that insurance. Medicaid, I do not know how that worked. Since the first of the year you can register anytime and once the insurance company you chose received your payment, the date they received your payment is the day your insurance starts.

    Now there has been so many changes what is law one day isn't the next and what isn't law today may become law tomorrow. No one knows for sure what exactly is happening and what is and what isn't. I doubt even HHS knows.

    Good Morning Pol by the way.
    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.

    Well, my insurance didn't change and the insurance rates went down for a friend, so if we're using personal anecdotes, Obamacare is a success.

    Are you really comparing the first month of an incredibly glitchy website and a website which has mostly been fixed and in use for 6 months?

    Not if you ask me....Personally, my insurance coverage levels stayed the same, but my deductible rose from $1000 per individual to $2500. My wife was dropped from my plan forcing her to pick up insurance through her employer doubling out weekly premium cost. So, my costs more than doubled.

    They had over three years to get it right and it was a huge failure from day one. That they have seemingly patched it enough to work through, we still don't know if the payment part is up, nor do we have any independent overview of how things are going. All we are getting is what the administration wants to put out there....That you trust that blindly is not what I do.

    Are you implying that there are more than the estimated 3.84m previously uninsured who now have insurance thanks to Obamacare?
