The EPIC FAIL Obamascam Act is turning out to be the most monumental "We Told You So" moment in history.

Voters need to remember that it passed in Congress without a SINGLE Republican vote. Congratulations, Demorats. You built that.

Your goberment had 3 long years to get ready for this program roll-out!

If the sheeple had any CLUE about the way your goberment operates they probably would not sleep very well.....

Where’s Sandra Fluke when you need her? Come on, Sandy. Round up some of your randy Georgetown coeds, get them signed up and paying for those $1000 a month plans, and get busy using those “free” $9 a month birth control pills. Because your pimp Barry Obamboozler held up his end of the deal, and now it’s time for you to start providing the tricks.

MASSIVE EPIC BIBLICAL LEVEL UNPRECEDENTED UNFATHOMABLE COMPLETE ABJECT FAILLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!

"Even the Associated Press was forced to lament the “dismal numbers.” The federal health care exchange signed up less than 27,000 people. Meanwhile, nearly 7 million people are expected to lose the insurance plans President Obama said they could keep. So far, five million have lost their insurance.

The state numbers were far from encouraging. Overall, the states signed up 79,391 people. California led the way with 35,364 people who have selected a plan (as opposed to 1 million who have lost a plan); New York came in second at 16,404 (at least 100,000 New Yorkers have lost their insurance); Washington came in third at 7,091 (290,000 have lost their insurance in Washington); and Kentucky came in at 5,586 (280,000 lost their insurance in Kentucky)."

Did I mention this is GOVERNMENT: FAIL!

But that's OK, Coughy got an email from a Nigerian Prince in exile who will give him $20 million if he emails the Prince his SS and bank account numbers.

Unless these numbers can be verified, I doubt they are accurate, probably much lower then being reported. Everything that has come out of Washington the past five years has been a lie, why would these figures be true and accurate?

Stick to what you know Dems. Scrap your silly web site idea and roll out the Obamacare sign-up machines. Bus in undocumented workers and the dead, and let them all sign up twice, with assistance from New Black Panther Obamacare navigators.

Smoker - The Un-ACA is there, go sign up, select the coverage that meets Obama's criteria, and send in your premium money to the insurance company.

If all of the Progressives that thinks this is a good idea would sign up and participate, maybe Obama wouldn't have to think up so many excuses for the ACA's failure to launch.

Even the Progressive legislators now that to participate is to become a slaves to another failed government program, yet the minions are told that 'rich guy' is keeping them down.

PS, CLASS ENVY IS A TERRIBLE THING TO WASTE.

AND SO IS THE STUPIDIDY THAT BEGETS BLIND TRUST OF A KNOWN LIAR'S PROMISES AND EXCUSES.

Hey daMoron! You wanna pick a fight? Choke on this. 846,184: filled out the application but have not yet selected a plan 1,509,883: individuals applying for coverage with completed applications 1,081,592: total individuals eligible to enroll in an exchange plan. Most haven't made a payment yet because the policy doesn't rake effect until Jan 1, moron. And that doesn't count when multiple people are covered under the same plan. As for cancelled plans. Those are not insurance plans. They are scams on low income people and I believe all Teapublicans should have one if those policies. Then you can all start kicking and screaming for some affirdable healthcare.

"They are scams on low income people "

If this is such an insignificant issue then why are so many Dem's flipping out over it??

From SF Gate, "Sen. Dianne Feinstein on Tuesday joined the ranks of worried Democrats demanding that President Obama allow people to keep their current insurance policies. Feinstein’s move is bad news for an administration desperate for good news following the roll-out debacle of the Affordable Care Act’s health insurance exchange on Oct. 1, which has been plagued by technical problems."

@wvcoffee,

More from Feinstein, "“Since the beginning of September, I have received 30,842 calls, emails and letters from Californians, many of whom are very distressed by cancellations of their insurance policies and who are facing increased out-of-pocket costs. “For example, a father from Rancho Mirage called and said: ‘I work three jobs to pay the bills for my wife and daughter. I got a letter that my plan is going from $420 to $943. I went to HealthCare.Gov, then Covered California. I researched my premiums. A policy almost identical to my old one is being offered for $863. I’m now being forced to come up with over $400 a month with 30 days’ notice. Let me spell it out: I do not have the income to afford this.’"

Yeah, nothing to worry about! Just a scam on low income folks!

Then why are Dem's clamoring for a "fix"?

coffeeman, could you post your outburst again, the first 3 times didn't really tell us what you think.

Go in peace...you can now have the plan that Obama selected for you.

If you could be so kind...please explain any citizen must give up the plan they have chosen; because Obama and Coffeeman think they are scams?

How could you know what insurance coverage is right for others.

Maybe some of us don't want have a need for birth control, pediatric care, and other items mandated by the ACA.

Again, go in peace...you will find the answers you seek if you look in the right places.
