      Yeah, junior you hit the nail on the head….3 million is an unmitigated disaster and the 25% young adults is the kiss of death for this plan…they needed at minimum, by this stage of the plan 35% of the sign ups to be HEALTHY YOUNG ADULTS who would pay in a lot of money to support the other really sick, smokers, COPD, drug addicted, massively obsess, diabetic Democrats who are unemployed and living off really fat welfare checks while the rest of America works hard to support them
      We all agree with you, MASSIVE DISASTER…we know now that this program will be mercifully terminated when the T. Party takes over the Senate this coming November, THANKS IN LARGE PART TO THE MASSIVE incompetence of Democrats, which ObamaCare so CLEARLY DEMONSTRATES….wow! Junior, you must be in tears, sitting a puddle of poop, eh?

    • HERE'S A REAL LIFE OBAMACARE STORY - read on if you dare, cons:

      I signed up for Obamacare through the Covered California web-site. It was a difficult process that took 6 weeks (quite a drag), but on Dec 31 my application was approved (by CoveredCA & the IRS) and I paid my first premium. Because I was unemployed for part of last year I received a subsidy that have brought all my costs WAY DOWN (my income will rise back to normal for 2014 since I'm re-employed again, dang). I had many policy options - ranging from $1 a month to about $500 a month. I chose a Silver Level PPO - just like the one I had had at my last job w/ benefits that ended in 2012. All my established doctors and specialists already take this particular plan.

      About the second week in January I received the "Welcome Packet" from my insurer, along w/ new insurance card. I made an appointment for long overdue out-patient surgery. The procedure would have cost me $3,000 out of pocket. But because it was a COVERED PROCEDURE, I only had to pay a modest co-pay. I saved $2,980 right off the bat with my new health insurance plan and saw my OWN doctor. My February premium was paid on Jan 29 and I just received a statement from the insurer confirming that the procedure was covered, the doctor paid.

      I am completely satisfied with my Obamacare experience so far. It is not a perfect program, but for those who were legally denied health insurance because of pre-existing conditions prior to Jan 1 (as I & millions others were), it is a huge relief to be able to participate in the U.S. healthcare system now that the law is in effect. We all pay for the privilege of doing so (subsidized or not) since there is no free ride w/ the ACA. Long may it live and continue to help those who most definitely want fairer treatment in what remains a corrupt, for-profit health insurance system. Demand Medicare-for-All now - the next battle for sure.

      I take great comfort in the fact that now any "alternative" proposed by the Republicans will receive such a negative CBO score that the ACA will appear brighter and shinier with each passing year. But buyer beware - in this current environment you must be your own advocate... patience and persistence should reward anyone who wants to find affordable healthcare on the exchanges and then some.

    • 59% disapproval. Only 8% say website is working right. Admin.said they need 48% young people, they are getting 24% Wont tell how many of the 3.3 million actually paid premium.Estimated 80- 90% of signups are from people canceled because of Obamacare. OOOOPSIE!!!

      NEXT!!!! Did I whip your fanny on this one,Junior??? HEEHEEHEHEEHEE HILARIOUS!!!!!!
