is that why Obama admits now that the healthcare plan is not going well?

The website has the normal problems for such a project done by private contractors doing it in a fraction of the time normally allowed for such a project. Proportionately, far more have chosen policies at this point than was true at a comparable point in time in Massachusetts roll-out of RomneyCare--which is touted by Romney and others as having been very successful. The problems that are more than fiction I've heard about can be attributed to the insurance companies failing to fully inform people about the trash policies they had or the better options they could have through the exchanges than what they are willing to offer their customers.

It's a cute and funny cartoon, and it does a very good job of debunking some of the dumber talking-points against ObamaCare. However, I still think the U.S. is far too diverse for its national government to handle a one-size-fits-all approach, and that its regulation of minimum requirements for health-coverage leaves too much open to politics rather than medical need.

From what understand, the problem with the website isn't even internal to the site itself. It has to access lots of large databases all over the country which are stored on old computers with internet-connections so slow that they time-out on modern systems (which expect faster responses than they can give). To make the website work as the contract requires, there would have to be hardware-upgrades all over the U.S. which go far beyond what CGI could legally demand that government-departments do.

Cute, but not as cute as those lovely photos of those children sent along with the links to your news. :-)

Ty Kit for your usual agile and astute gathering of articles, information and humor. . .that both accurately inform and ease the cerebral discomforts of living in the Age of the Azz-hatters. . .hats off and smiles to you!

Oh what we could do and be...if Ted and the Once-lers would just quietly leave or learn to see. . .Long live the Lorax―Barb-ba-Loots―Swommee Swans―Humming Fish and Truffula Trees. . .

I have total faith that the ACA will be workable and successful. It really hasn't been that long and we must not give up. People need health care.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the new system works out for all you people in the U.S.

Newspapers get written at an 8th grade reading comprehension level because that is the top reading level of the majority of Americans, without regard to political perspective--it fits the majority all across the spectrum.

It is regrettable that Americans can't simply enjoy the kind of universal health care that much the rest of the democratic world takes for granted as a human right.

Very smart way of debunking anti-Obamavare. Too sad that it is at all necessary.
