    I hope the whole thing implodes, but not at the expense of the health care industry! Talk about dumb! I still wonder why they didn't just make your health care premiums a tax deduction on a sliding percentage based on income? This is an absolute waste of our money!! end rant....

    Think of the literally millions of people that were perfectly happy with their health insurance that now have none. Not to mention the loss of jobs and reduced work hours directly associated with this mess. Obamacare is a failure of staggering magnitude.

    Meanwhile, Iran's got nukes and 21 nations want the UN to stop the NSA spying.

    I thought that the passing of this whole socialistic shakedown would be met by vigilante style hangings.
    Even though having VA care counts as health care, you cant buy every vet off that way.

    The folksy singers posted above should be ashamed for supporting the theft of our countrymens rights and property.

    For the first time in history I have been made grateful my medical care is through the V.A. I never thought that would be possible. Thanks Osocialistbama!

    Every politician associated with this debacle need to be voted out at the very least. Not just in Oregon but nation-wide.

    Some States Reporting Unbelievably Low Health Care Enrollment Numbers (One State’s at Zero!)

    by Josh Feldman | 5:16 pm, October 25th, 2013

    shutterstock_130801460-300x203.jpg The Obamacare rollout has left much to be desired; so much so, in fact, that a few states have reportedly enrolled absolutely no one so far. And there are still other states where enrollment is not quite non-existent, but is still unbelievably low.

    Oregon is the most striking example so far. Cover Oregon, the state’s health insurance exchange, has admitted precisely zero people have enrolled due to their “problem-plagued site.” The site was originally going to let consumers sign up directly, but it was then changed to only allow insurance agents and application assisters enroll, which hasn’t happened yet, and officials at Cover Oregon are hoping the site will be up and running properly by Halloween.
    Meanwhile, health care navigators in Kansas admitted they have been unable to enroll a single person since Obamacare went live, according to Kansas Watchdog, though there have been some confirmed enrollments through other avenues. The number of those has not, however, been released.
    In Michigan it’s “still unclear” how many have signed up, with absolutely zero confirmation that anyone has been able to do so. Only seven people in Alaska have signed up, and the Obama administration proudly touted all the Delaware citizens who signed up by inviting all one of them to the White House.

    Do you mean that even though the video displays a prominent "Rainbow" folks can't make the website work.
    Some people ought to have the proper qualifications to be accepted . . .

    Now, I'm not a fan of the Affordable Care Act aka Obamacare, but aren't we missing the big picture here?

    Depending on which source, Obamacare will perhaps increase the deficit by 30 to 100 billion over the next 10 years. A huge range, and considering they aren't able to sign that many people up yet it could be way off.

    On the other hand, we are spending a total of 30 billion a year, at the start, for the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Recently we approved 80 billion for operations in Iraq and Afghanistan for 2014. So far we have spent 778 billion on the war effort.

    So, 70 billion (average) a year for a war in 2 other countries or 100 billion over 10 years to help our own people? Hmm... Not a hard choice for me? Oh, and this doesn't even count the VA costs for our vets returning home broken and damaged.

    To me this is just like people screaming over the ~11,000 non-suicide related firearm deaths a year (Suicide is about 20K a year) . When 600,000 people die each year from heart disease. Hmm. Again, why are people so focused on the small potatoes? Or what about the 575,000 people who die each year from cancer? That is over a million people who die from just two of the top killers, firearms aren't even in the top 10!

    Just trying to put things in prospective.
    The whole Obamacare is a wag the dog situation, go after the big costs.

    Well Morpheus, it goes deeper than that, we the people did not want this kind of a bill (we are happy with what we have), our legislators (all Democrats) did not even read the damn thing, it morphed (no pun intended...) from 2,400 pages to more than 20,000 pages (so they could ad anything they wanted), if we do not want any HC then we are fined $$$ and it has been a complete failure from the start.
    It has and will continue to cost us, our children, our grandchildren and our grandchildren's children way too much $$$$ already, where will it stop???
    I for one will celebrate the day it is repealed because it is the beginning of a Socialistic republic, which many Americans will fight to the death against Tyranny!!!!!!

    Remember when Obummer first ran and said one of the things he wanted to achieve was wealth redistribution? This obummercare crap is just one of the cogs in that wheel.

    As for this "commercial". It makes me want to throw up every time I see it or pass one of those stupid billboards. This whole campaign is nothing more than the left "spiking the ball" in celebration of getting this rammed down our throats.

    One would be better off investing in lotto tickets. At least you have a slim chance of getting something for your hard earned money.
