Wonder if you have such low standards in your personal life?

    You've already made it clear you're not interested in whether it's a success or not, only in finding ways to call it a disaster. You have very little credibility on the subject, quite honestly.
    No, I'd love it if this worked, but everyone knows young people are not going to sign up for this. It was financially doomed from the get-go. THEY'RE YOUNG PEOPLE! Since when do young people save for their retirement, invest in the market, save 20 percent of their earnings, or purchase health insurance on their own?

    Seriously, THAT was the plan?

    No, it's not the plan. The plan is to force the entire nation into a government healthcare program, drive insurance companies out of business, and control 1/6th of the economy, even if healthcare research and actual care suffer mightily. Once that herd leaves the barn, there's not putting the old system back together.

    This has nothing to do with taking care of people, and everything to do with absolute power over them.

    It also has nothing to do with "making healthcare affordable for all." It is merely a very large entitlement program.

    Who cares if the sign-up is for 6 million when the goal was originally 7 million? And this is not even taking into account that some of them haven't paid their premium yet.

    Wow, no replies from you libs, what a surprise. Can't you just parrot Obama? The ACA is going to drive down the debt! That will probably happen at about the same time we all realize our $2500 in savings. Jeez, how gullible are you people?

    And here's another question. If it's so great, why do we have to force people to get it?

    How many will pay for it without subsidy? How many of them are single parents? How many don't even know they're required to pay?

    You won't be pleased when you find out. If you find out. Nobody wants to say.

    The plan itself won't in theoretical terms, but the residual shortfall from non-paying and subsidized enrollees most certainly will. Not to mention the effect it will have on the workforce, which will only create more subsidized enrollees.
