From the article "bureaucrats handling Obamacare remained on the job."

Are you sure? The website was down, the live chat line was down, and the wait on the phone lines was forever. Maybe they were getting the hope and change ready...

Should people who havn't developed sufficient to meet their own obligarions beyond one paycheck be allowed to vote and decide matters for the more responsible citizens ?

people who know a shutdown has shutdown a facility, yet go to the place to be told it isn't open, need a brain scan.

Hey Pathguy, were YOU able to sign up for Obamacare yesterday? Because the website is STILL showing "please wait" on day two.

Epic fail, Barry. Go back to community organizing and leave the health insurance business to the professionals.

" leave the health insurance business to the professionals."

Do you mean the insurance companies? Because they are in charge?

Hey Clueless, did you get signed up for that wonderful Obamacare plan yet? Or are you still freeloading while you stare at that "please wait" on the healthcare dot gov website?

Really? You mean the president has the power to approve the budget all by himself? This article is the epitome of ignorance.

All of America knows that the GOP is as impotent as it's members; a collection of self-serving, war hungry, money mongers, is the grist-stone around America's neck...the party of prevention, the party of wrench-throwing, the party of nothingness...the members which we pay very well to do absolutely nothing. The GOP is more than embarassing, they've become dangerous to all of America.

Really? acoustic, you mean the president has no influence whatsoever in the budget process? That Barry Bankrupter is merely a pawn who signs whatever Harry Reid puts in front of him? Your post is the epitome of ignorance.

TS, you goof! You don't "sign up for Obamacare"! If you don't have insurance or want a better plan, you sign up for private insurance. If you can't afford it, you join the Medicaid roles.

If the debt ceiling is not raised, just over half of those questioned in the CNN poll, 53%, said congressional Republicans would be more responsible rather than Obama, with 31% pointing more fingers at the president.

Those numbers are little changed from July 2011, the last time Obama and Congress fought over the debt ceiling, which was eventually raised.

caltrans "TS, you goof! You don't "sign up for Obamacare"!"

You got that right, CT. I spent all day yesterday on the healthcare dot gov website and didn't get signed up. I'm being held hostage by the "please stay on this page" prompt on the Obamacare webpage again today. I'd close the webpage but I'm afraid the NSA already has my ip address...

By the way, CT, if you aren't signing up, why does the Obamacare webpage say " you’ll use this website, HealthCare. gov, to apply for coverage, compare plans, and enroll."

"Apply" and "enroll" being synonyms for sign up" and all, I kind of thought I would be signing up for at least something...

Even though Obamacare Central is STILL not shovel-ready, go to healthcare. g o v and get to reading this behemoth. Be sure to read all of the information at the numerous links to IRS publications too.

TS, apparently, you also can't read. I believe that acoustic was pointing out that the President can't do it ALONE. Are you really that dense?

caltrans “acoustic was pointing out that the President can't do it ALONE. Are you really that dense?”

acoustic was trying to pass the buck for Barry Obuckpasser’s pathetic attempts to blame the House for the Government shutdown he and Harry Reid could easily end by simply agreeing to pass and sign the debt ceiling bill that included EVERYTHING BARRY AND HARRY WANTED, that would also simply delay the individual mandate just like Barry himself delayed the employer mandate. Are you really that obtuse?

Now explain to me a little more about how that Obamacare website has a button that says "Apply Now" but you claim I can't sign up (a.k.a., apply) there? Because that sounds a little Obamafishy to me...

Obama is like a horse with blinders. He sees only what he wants to see., or you can call it tunnel vision.

The Obama Plan is the first phase of National Health Care for the USA. This is long overdue. It is very unfair for some to receive Medicare and Medicaid while others do not. The Feds will now be able to control vendor fees; curtail escalation. The days of doctors and hospitals profiteering from patient illness are coming to a close in the US. Care should be a right of every USA citizen; as it is elsewhere in the developed World. More doctors should be trained and paid a professional-reasonable-salary. No more five car garages.

No one is buying this NR. The national newspapers disagree with this baloney. Obama won the election. The choice was Obama and keep PPACA or Rmoney and repeal PPACA. Obama won. The Supreme Court validated it as constitutional. No one will be fooled by this looney editorial.
