    You are certainly entitled to your own opinions, but you are not entitled to your own facts

    So far, the fact is that the projections have proven themselves to be nearly spot on. In fact, the results have exceeded projections.

    True at present, however, easily changed if and when it is becomes fiscally non-viable.
    The #'s suggest that any changes will be in a more positive direction. So far, the costs have had to be revised downwards


    Guess we'll see.
    It's already been seen. The GOP's pitiful attempt to convince people to not enroll in exchange plans has failed.

    It's a completely different thing, and is most certainly not like Medicare and SS, other than yet another entitlement program.
    You said something about the dems making a bet " that government can actually deliver a satisfactory, one size fits all solution for everyone. Not a bet that I'd have made."

    That description applies to ACA as much as it applies to Medicare and SS. In a few years, your side will be marching with signs that say "Keep your govt hands off my Obamacare"

    No, I'm not proffering any false facts here. There is much more to ObamaCare left yet to implement. Isn't the last of it supposed to kick in, barring any further delays, all the way out to 2017? If so, then doesn't this still qualify are early? It's 3 more years until 2017.

    Meh. Plenty of bills are going to have to be paid, and those who are going to have to pay them for all the others, the increasing others, are bound not to happy about it, and may end up needing subsidies themselves.

    I did not say that you have proferred any false facts. I implied that you are ignoring true facts

    In which case, they will favor those who made the subsidies available to them.

    You have a right to your own opinions. You don't have the right to your own facts

    The results, which have exceeded projections, have shown that costs are going down.

    Re: Obamacare enrollment hits 7 million

    This latest update of over 7 million will probably rank as one of the greatest acheivements in American history, right up there with winning WW2, landing on the moon, and the election of Obama. 7.1 million. Unbelievable success and makes me proud to be an American. Cities all around the country big and small are celebrating. You would think its Mardi Gras. The joy, the enthusiasm as we stand in awe as a country, and as citizens.

    Insolvency will result in the conditions that I eluded to, namely more qualifying for subsidies than those that are paying for them. That would result in insolvency, would it not?

    I figure that you just like to always bust my chops, and always take my posts in such a way that you feel justified in doing so somehow. Doesn't really say much about me, but speaks volumes about you. Why are you so bitter? Why are you so aggressive? Intolerant of others that have their own opinions? Different opinions than yours?

    Your projections of insolvency are contradicted by the facts, and further supported by the rights complete and utter failure to make any accurate predictions relating to ACA
