Everything has growing pains. This is quite early and could well be due to sabotage. Obama is right. This will be a better and less expensive health care system than America has ever had before. The most likely reason for the early failure is that so many people wanted to enroll all at once. Just shows that people do need it.

It doesn't take a rocky roll out to resurrect the Republicanus/Teabagger challenge to the ACA. They are already committed to stopping Obamacare any way they can. Personally, it is a fool's errand, but then nobody ever said the Republicanus/Teabggers were smart! As someone who has universal healthcare, it is the only way to go. Obamacare is not universal healthcare, but it is a step in the correct direction.

Noted. I was shocked to see a message in my email earlier asking me to sign for the repeal of Obamacare. (Of course I didn't even open it). I wondered how they got my name, since I support the ACA. So, yes, they are like a dog with a bone.
Like, Jamie (above), I'm hoping this leads to a single payer system. That's what I pushed for in the 1st place, but supporters were shut out of the very first meeting on the topic so many years ago now. Some were even arrested. Left an extremely bad taste in my mouth at the time. But, we've got what the Dems (who held the House during the writing/passage of the ACA) allowed, and I'm hoping changes will be made soon for the betterment of the public.....not the insurance companies.

The rollout won't do that. The cuts to the subsidies that make the premiums affordable, which are made practically inevitable by the deficit, might. Of course, those aren't even on the table yet and by the time they are, any repeal would be a whole lot tougher than before implementation.

They expected 60,000 people to call in and got millions. The demand is there. No one could have expected those numbers. National news reported this evening that those in favor of the ObamaCare has raisen about 10% from last month. I think people are starting to realize that the Republicans have been lying to them about what the program was about.

I'm pissed that those in charge of the Obamacare roll out are pretty much dropping the ball. Those in charge should had expected a mass amount of interest, BUT I do understand, no matter how well prepare an organization can be, high volume internet traffic can crash ANY website. Most of us have experience this during Christmas season or during a Black Friday or Cyber Monday, right? Also, how are we not surprised that the same Repugs that wanted to repeal Obamacare are now jumping on ANY glitch, problem or delay associated with the Obamacare roll out? The Repugs have only one mission, and that is to be a pain in the you know what! Repugs don't want to be part of any solution, just part of the problem, or better yet, to create a problem (or a conspiracy), where none exists!

All new systems, especially such a large system as this rolled out across different states, will have it's hiccups and will crash whenever the demand is too high. And any system can be sabotaged, either from the outside by launching massive attacks and bombarding it with information so it crashed, or from the inside by hacking into it or building in some 'special features'. All of this has been known to happen with other systems, so it was to be expected.
And given the never-ending, murderous doggedness with which the GOP/TP is trying to repeal the ACA, even letting the whole country teeter on the brink of disaster in it's pursuit, are we absolutely convinced that no hackers or software specialists are working against the system to make it look bad? I put nothing past them, the GOP/TP just never has stopped trying to get Obamacare repealed.
