If it wasn't so sad, it would be funny.

I've managed to finally inch my way along on Healthcare.gov.

First I couldn't get on the site, at all. That was day one and day two. Then I was able to enter some basic information, but couldn't get a password, so it didn't register me. Day three.

Then I was able to get a password, but couldn't set up my security questions. Day three, four.

Then I was able to enter in basic information about myself, address, phone number SS#. Day four ... second session.

Next I was supposed to be able to view the available plans. Not a chance ...

Forget it ... now the site has been closed down for days, and you can't access it.

The alternative route, is a phone number they give out, but I was on hold for that for 32 minutes tonight, before being cut off.

Next I'm going to try doing this face to face locally, and see where that gets me, but I have a feeling it will be a bad scene.

A week into this, and I've barely inched forward. It's like they're trying to give people just enough to keep them coming back for more Crazy.gov.

We are sorry, there is no one in right now, Please try again in a few months time.

Millions of people trying for the same as you.
Patience is key. Just give it a week and try again :D

I flew back to Vietnam from a stay in the States last month.  It took me well over an hour to get through the line at the Security Check (although the check itself went fairly well).

On arrival in HCMC it took me less than ten minutes to go through passport check, security, get my bags and go through customs (which I didn't even see except they scanned one of my bags).

I don't suppose a single experience says much, but if the Americans really want to be secure they need to staff their checks better.

i think all this does rather strongly refute all the claims that the U.S. Govt. is the great, ruthlessly efficient totalitarian organisation that is able to organise enormous false flag terrorist attacks that worked absolutely flawlessly, despite their incredible complexity, and that they've managed to keep secret ever since, and is, at any moment, about to round up and incarcerate dissenters in vast prison camps, and mark everyone with identification tags so they can monitor their movements every moment of the day, don't you think.

Very rational, but I wonder if logic will ever stop the irrational.

So the millions of hits on their website were a few thousand people calling back repeatedly?

I understand the Affordable Care Act isn't so affordable either, for those who got through to pick a plan. But I hear a lot of things from both sides.

It's going to take a long time before we know where ACA will go (the good the bad and the ugly), imo.

I heard a web expert talking about that very point yesterday.  All of the "million" coming to the site are just multiple attempts by the same people trying to get through.  

And yet sites like Amazon handle exponentially more traffic day in and day out with very few problems.

Go Government!

Some of us knew that ACA was a bad idea before it was voted on...without being read...by Congress.  Imagine that...legislation that is so complex, not even the Congressional leaders could figure it out...and we are supposed to just be okay with it?  We aren't.  It is a job killing, freedom sucking, money sucking, machine which will forever devastate health care in this country.

Forever is quite a long time.

How about just a few billion years.

I'm thinking it may result in steering the U.S. "inevitably" to universal single payer healthcare.

Right now the government is in a stalemate (it's shut down). Nothing (well, just about nothing) having to do with the government is functioning. When this political nonsense is finally solved things will improve...not saying things will work well, just improve.

That may well be the plan.

The old socialist way to confiscate private industries -- pass laws the private industry can't possibly comply with and then pick up the pieces cheap.

Single Payer was and is the goal from the beginning!

Hannity had a large group on his show last night. Half Dems / Half Republicans

They agreed on MANY things.

1st they all admitted the obvious. When Newt shutdown the government in 1995 he met with President Clinton - everyday-.

They all agreed it is wrong for Obama to refuse to negotiate.

They also agreed that - nothing - will happen until the 11th hour. It will be exactly like the Sequester Circus.

The final deal will look like this:

- Fund the government with a CR until December 15, 2013

- 1 Year Delay in ObamaCare ( They informed Hannity that the ObamaCare Website will be down for 6 months. It doesn't work).

- Repeal Medical Device Tax

The Republicans also said that Obama shutdown the memorials and White House Tours because he is immature and petulant.

The dems did not disagree.  They just sat there and stared at Sean Hannity.

So anyway, that is where we are right now.
