Come on people. Give Barry Benghazi Obankrupter a break. After all, he's only had THREE YEARS to get this thing organized.

Besides, if you think the hours-long wait on the Obamascam website or the hours-long wait on the Obamascam phone lines are something, wait till you get to experience the wait you'll have for a mammogram... Pack a lunch. And a dinner. And a cot...

It is certainly good to see the interest in health care. I never thought I would see the centerpiece of a political party is to deny Americans health care.

...and I never thought I would see the centerpiece of the Democrit party would be to deny VETERANS BENEFITS to American patriots. Where did the old Democrat party go? Hijacked by scammers and freeloaders. Pathetic, Democrits.

Wvcoffee, October 1, 2013 will long be a great day in American history because of the record number of Americans who spent the entire day staring at “please wait” on the Obamascam signup webpage, or because of the record number of Americans put on hold the entire day on the Obamascam phone lines, or because of the Democrit Senate’s failure to pass the House PASSED debt ceiling bill resulting in a Democrit-caused shutdown of the US Government?

And you think October 1 was great, just wait until you find out about the October 2 Democrit plan to reject the House bill to fund the House bill to fund the National Park Service. And the Democrit plan to reject the House bill to fund the DC Government. And the Democrit plan to reject the House bill to fund the Department of Veterans Affairs, which will deny our military veterans their battle-earned services.

Yep, you Democrits are making history every day now. Let me rephrase that. You Democrits are history now.

Wvcoffee “ACA forever!”

I think that full quote, from an anonymous American attempting to sign up for Obamacare on the website, and then on hold on the Obamacare phone line, and then unable to access the Obamacare chat help line, was

“This ACA takes forever!”

“please wait... thank you for your patience... please stay on this page... please hold...” is NOT health care, Barry Obumbler. It is, however, quite affordable...

To criticize the health insurance exchanges' glitchy debut, or the small number of enrollments Tuesday, would be premature, according to Jonathan Gruber, a Massachusetts Institute of Technology economist who was an architect of the 2006 Massachusetts health care overhaul that served as a model for Obama's reform law and consulted on Obamacare.

"Hours or even days is not the relevant timeframe for evaluating exchanges," Gruber wrote in an email to the Huffington Post. "The question is simply whether there are ways that folks can sign up to get insurance by Jan. 1. That is a question for late November, not early October." Enrollment for 2014 health benefits runs until March 31 and coverage chosen by Dec. 15 takes effect on Jan. 1.

Gooseplagiarizer “To criticize the health insurance exchanges' glitchy debut, or the small number of enrollments Tuesday, would be premature”

Yeah Goosy. Because the REAL criticism comes when those folks actually get through to that website and find out how unaffordable that “Affordable Care” really is. “My premium is WHAT? I THOUGHT IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE FREE!”

Wait ‘till they calm down about the rates before you tell them about the astronomical deductibles and the ridiculous wait times and what’s NOT covered... You don’t want a riot on your hands... LOL

A bit off topic, but any day the Deprtment of Natural Resources or Wildlife Management (or whatever they call themselves) isn't funded is a good day for our country. Middle Island, in Pleasants County, WV, is staffed like an army base at our expense. It is a tiny, tiny little island where people walk their dogs, joggers jog, and people go to eat their lunch under the ever-vigilant eye of the DNR, who must think that they are policing Attica. Have a nice few days off, fellas.

[start sarcasm] Not to worry, just because the government web-site can't process the information required to allow the sheeple to sign-up (once), what makes you think there will be an even greater problem managing the exponentially data volume required to process the volume of claims each day. [end sarcasm].

Government shutdown is ALL on the GOP in congress. Say goodbye Tea Party. Even the GOP moderates stopped listening. No government should be held hostage by a tiny lunatic fringe. Troll can lie all day but it doesn't change facts.

Wvcoffee “Government shutdown is ALL on the GOP in congress blah blah blah...”

How many debt ceiling bills does the Republican-controlled House have to send to Harry Reid and his Democrit Senate extortionists before we can get the Department of Veterans Affairs funded so our veterans can get the services they earned? NO MORE STALLING, NO MORE BUCK PASSING, DEMORATS. PASS THE BILL, DEMORATS.

coffee; OK, lets say that the continuing Resolution had been passed for three more months as proposed, how long must this gamesmanship go no before the President proposes a fiscally responsible Budget that will pass even the Democratic majority in the Senate?

If there was a budget, the discussion of extending the funding or shutting down the Government would not even come up.

Now, whose fault is the shutdown?

Wait, don't answer yet, wait until you get the talking points from the President, Harry Reid, or CBS/MBC/ABC/CNN (otherwise known as the Obama News Networks).

I guess if someone opposes raising the debt ceiling again later this month, it will be their fault that the Government may be shut down. Again no proposal to reduce the deficit, just that mean old GOP not letting the government borrow more trillions.

Yeah, the Tea-Party is all wrong, but tell me, what will happen when the entire government spending is for "entitlement programs" and debt service?

"Lielasus, a 54-year-old self-employed grant writer, currently spends about $8,500 a year in premiums and more than $10,000 for out-of-pocket expenses because she has a health condition and her only option has been a state high-risk insurance pool. She said she expects those costs to decrease significantly."

Why? According to a CPA firm with no axe to grind, a family of four with no known medical problems will be spending about that much under this system. No bias, they just looked at the quoted prices for coverage, the copays and deductibles, and added it up.

A Gallup poll found a quarter of people plan to pay the fine. The real problem for obieCare is almost half of young adults will not sign up. Since one real goal was getting their premiums, since they use little medical care, is the high cost people will join, the low cost won't. Any insurance agent will tell you that's a recipe for disaster.

totally off topic, but related to the Oz mentality of this administration and their supporters. Good to see someone at the old school is not following the herd of academics behind obie.

"Not all scientists are panicking about global warming — one of them finds the alarmism “hilarious.”

A top climate scientist from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology lambasted a new report by the UN’s climate bureaucracy that blamed mankind as the main cause of global warming and whitewashed the fact that there has been a hiatus in warming for the last 15 years.

“I think that the latest IPCC report has truly sunk to level of hilarious incoherence,” Dr. Richard Lindzen told Climate Depot, a global warming skeptic news site. “They are proclaiming increased confidence in their models as the discrepancies between their models and observations increase"

What was that claim that all serious scientists support the Human-Induced Climate Change concepts? Hoop? Birdie? Care to argue crede
