anyone else here so sick and tired of the infamous liberal excuse,,,”well,its not where we want it to be at this time”? yah, every time things don’t go their way, we hear it. just like when the economy&jobs have been stagnant since 2009. its either Bush’s fault, or “Not where we would like it to be at this time”.

Works great as long as no one tries to use it. That's kind of what they're saying?

It's there for looks only - it's an affirmative action website.

My ex marketing guy wrote a blog article critical of the security of the site. We’re a security company.

Someone from HHS was on our website reading that article.

I tried using Healthcare.gov today because it was supposed to work today.

It worked fine until it got to calculating any federal subsidy I might be eligible for. It could only give me an estimate.

But the real fly in the ointment is how high the deductibles are. Most plans are $5000 and up annually. And you must pay all of it before the plan will pay a single penny.

My current health insurance annual deductible is only $300. After that is paid, my plan pays 80% of everything.

Also, the monthly premiums are pretty high. Most are above $500 per month.

So......you pay $500 x 12 yearly premiums = $6000.
Then you pay the $5000 deductible.

Bottom line...you pay $11,000 before Obamacare will pay a single dime. After that typically it will pay 80% for hospital services. But you still have to pay $40-50 co-pay for visiting the doctors in their plan, your current doctor is most likely not in their plan.

Clever propaganda to lower expectations because they will NEVER be efficient unlike the Bush administration.

The disaster is not the website itself.

The disaster is still to come.

The website is like the road leading to the disaster. Once the road is paved nicely and can be driven on with no problems, it just leads to a cliff or the disaster at the end of the road.

Here’s the foreign language help from the front page:

French Creole, Gujarati, Polish, Portuguese, Russian and Tagalog.

The other 7 they list are more typical. I just thought that collection was odd, like that’s what was available from the staff to post last minute. “A website for all peoples.”

I tried logging on but kept getting "Access Denied" messages. Closer inspection of issues revealed that the so called website doesn't pass minimum security threshholds for my computer.

Thank Gawd.

Well, it does work better. I’ll give them that.

Sucks for them that it does.

I was able to “browse” for my demographic using carefully selected fake data.

Cheapest plan is $505/mth, with zero coverage until after the $12,600 deductible is met.

Lol. Never. I’ll get my utilities shut off and claim a hardship exemption once a year before I hand that over to Obama.

Clearly, the day is close when the Messiah will pronounce Healthcare.gov a success and announce it will immediately be expanded to the rest of the U.S. population and anyone outside the U.S. paying U.S. taxes. Oh, and by the way, your current insurance will be disposed of forthwith! This has obviously been his goal all along, requiring the insured to send their monthly insurance premiums to Uncle Sugar so Uncle Sugar can spend it buying more votes.
