The fact a govt run website was too expensive and still doesn't work is just so indicitive of how the good the federal govt is at running things. They better hope no hacker group decides to screw with them. I doubt they are ready for it.

NORAD isn't run that great. Didn't they take heat a couple times for false nuclear attacks? Some tech loaded the wrong thing into system or something. Also what do they even do but sit around and look for planes that enter our airspace, not exactly something that day to day Americans need. When it comes to things like national defense the govt is best equipped to do it, but even then they screw it up all the time. Using how well Norad ran to say healthcare will be fine is a joke.

"We need a military budget big enough to keep us from being invaded by every country in the world.

Except NORAD. Those guys suck.

I didn't bring NORAD up they have nothing to do with govt programs anyways. Military a whole other animal and I agree 100% that is the govt job to do. Healthcare insurance, ummm not so much. Good try though lil fella.

Besides if someone said look at the military its run so well, lets let govt do healthcare insurance I would disagree. They do need a big budget but the military horrible at keeping costs low. If anything that is a good example of why not to let govt into healthcare. Good point.

Over 78,000 options for an estimated 20,000,000 people. http://blogs.marketwatch.com/health-...care-gov-site/

I'm staring to think Obama should have listened to the republicans and given his plan a year or MORE. He's going to be begging for more time well beyond the 6 months. Republicans will probably change their tune and demand he get it done in 6 months! It's a comedy.

ooooh! is that the same as scrapping obamacare? NO. They'll simply open a new site with the problems fixed.

If some website gliches is all you got to put your hat on after throwing a massive temper tantrum and shutting down the government, then have at it. At the end of the day it's meaningless cause obamacare is going no where.

The next shock will be in yr 3 when costs of the plans skyrocket. Sure the insurance companies are playing along right now, but just wait until the numbers get crunched. The real numbers. in a way its going to be funny.

Without the exchange working, and working well, the whole system tips over because of adverse selection. The sick who really need coverage will climb whatever obstacles they have to to get the discounted coverage. The healthy who are supposed to subsidize the sick and aren't positive they need coverage in the first place aren't going to spend hours upon hours trying to navigate the process.

So next year, premiums go up significantly. More of the healthy people who bothered to enroll wonder why they're paying so much for the benefit of the sick, and drop out. Then premiums go up again. And on and on.
