    Funny, no mention of this on Fox? Shocking I tell you. Shocking.
    Well the six million is a bit on the fuzzy side as all politicians play fast and loose with data.
    Still, it is interesting that "approximately 6 million" people sought health insurance coverage
    under a program with a flawed roll-out and groups of people throwing everything-but-the-kitchen-sink
    in an attempt to derail it.

    So in other words, you're forced into doing something.

    Such is the nature of IRS.

    How ironically comical. Your head is so far up Obama's butt, I can hardly hear you mumble.

    Funny? It's funny that no mention of how many PAID when they signed up!
    Funny no mention of how many are paying higher premiums.
    Funny no mention of how many had the previous insurance ripped away from them.
    Funny no mention of how many signed up in order to avoid be charged a fine by the IRS.
    Yeah Obama Care is funny alright and we have not yet heard the punch line.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    In a perfect world, the IRS would be as obsolete as Sony Walkmans.

    In order for Obamacare to even be a program worthwhile you would have to see 60-70 million people enroll...

    That is not going to happen.
    You are correct. I know I didn't enroll this year and I don't plan to enroll in the near future. Perhaps when this idiot leaves the White House there is a possibility things will get better.

    You can start by subsidizing me, I don't have insurance. PM me and I will tell you where to mail the check.

    Because I prefer facts instead of taking a position based upon team politics?

    You've already all but admitted you will never call it a success. You did, I can quote you if you'd like. How does someone like that have any credibility then on objectively determining the success of the legislation? It's simple, you don't.

    Sign up through the exchange, and if your income doesn't meet a certain level, I'll be happy to do my part to help the government subsidize you. Just be sure to thank Obamacare when you get the insurance you couldn't previously afford.

    Not in that article. But many others suggest 80 plus percent. Now back to right wing, radio you go.
