I'm confused, is it the governments fault or the Internet?

I guess to stay within the interest of the thread it's the GUBBERMINT....."(Big Surprise...)"

I'm not sure that 700-800,000 people locked out of their jobs, the day of the launch, was part of their demand planning.

800,000 non-essential federal employess were called off from going to work due to the Government Slimdown.  I would imagine that the powers that be deemed the opening day of "Affordable" Care essential.

So now that the Government is back to "work" I see that they are making things even worse for healthcare.gov:

Click Here (www.cbsnews.com)

snippet:  "(CBS News) CBS News has uncovered a serious pricing problem with HealthCare.gov. It stems from the Obama administration's efforts to improve its health care website. A new online feature can dramatically underestimate the cost of insurance."

The best horror writers in the world couldn't come up with a better skit than this entire "Affordable" Care Act fiasco.

So this guy from Colorado signs up for Obamacare because he gets an insurance cancellation from his old company (contrary to the BIG LIE "If you like your health insurance plan, you can keep it ...").

In any rate the man signed up over the phone and one of the security questions he had to answer involved his dogs name, as in "What is the name of your dog?"  He answered "Baxter".

A few days later a letter comes in the mail confirming the insurance coverage, addressed to "BAXTER".

How am I not surprised.

Thanks to O'care my preventative health care plan will now change over to catastrophic coverage.  I am insulin dependent.  And next year I'll pay $3500 more for doctor visits, labs, and all of my prescriptions.

DEMOCRATS = DERILECTS, appropriately represented my the donkey.  A bunch of @sses if you ask me.

Yet another example of the tragedy called the "Affordable" Care Act.  I am sorry to hear about what it has done to you; and MILLIONS more.  This is what the powers that be call Fundamental Change ... for the worse.
