They wil blame Republicans, claiming Obamacare was their idea...
...and they already have.
The GOP. Politics is based on the art of war, and we all know that deception is a tactic in war. This POTUS has really excelled in seemingly making it Ok to lye, then stonewall.
it was bush!
If you earn above a certain level, you are not forced to pay the public fee, which depends on your income up to a cap. The reason to take out private insurance is that the medical quality you receive is much better. Obviously you no longer wait in waiting rooms much. But the important thing is that you get top grade medical treatment immediately. While a friend in the public system had to wait for 2 months for a cat scan after diagnosis of a probably malignant tumor in his skull, I got one next day for what they thought was probably a harmless cyst but could have in theory been a benevolent tumor.
For a long time and in many cases still it was impossible to enter the public system, if you had been in a private plan. This led to a large number of people who, not being any longer able to pay the private plan were uninstallable and actual got treatment only if they could negotiate it on a time by time basis at the social center in a very complex ritual. Practically these people were excluded from all but emergency treatment if something happened. This was changed a bit.
I know of people in the town who have been able to switch and some that were unable to do so. I have not investigated why there is a different handling.

Should we not find out if history shows the ACA to be a failure before we cast blame?
Or, does the thread mean who to blame for the "glitches," rolling it out? For that, I blame Murphy's Law. I am not sure if it was the democrats or republicans that created Murphey's Law. But I curse the party that did. I hate Murphey's Law.

Perhaps one day the Cons will understand that political relevancy is about having original ideas, rather than thinking that choosing only impede the good ideas of other party is somehow a policy position.
Yeah, it's a good thing that I just made that up, and it never happened. Democrats are so wholesome.
BTW... I loved the Contract with America. My congressman, Tom Tancredo, ran on term limits..... then when his term was to be theoretically limited (as it wasn't a law), he announced his work was much too important to step down. At least he had the guts to admit he changed his mind rather than selective memory that he had never made a big deal about term limits (because he made a VERY big deal about them)...
