How many have signed up for the ACA in MS? 


16? 36? 48?

The number varies, but all low.

2 years to implement the website and there are still problems?

Typical democrat response... No answer ... "Faux news".

Fox News is garbage like CNN, NBC, CBS, etc.

How off are the numbers? How many MS people have signed up according to your numbers Rock?

reb... rock is a moderate, and the FOX Sports site he referred to is the god-awful site MST migrated to before returning to this domain/design after a day or two. He was just making a joke about that site and how the two transitions are/were not so favorable.

I have no idea how many people have signed up nor do I know how to find out how many people have signed up.

I also have no idea what you're talking about with your "typical democrat response" as I am a duly registered Independent voter in the State of Arizona.

Either you have forgotten completely about the aborted migration to a "new" site we were told about a little over a year ago or you have forgotten that the new site was/is called FOX Sports NEXT.

A law is passed without reading it and then the same bunch rolls out a website without testing it???  Should we really be surprised.

Well it wouldn't do for you to be able to go out there and actually see what this is going to cost you with all these budget discussions still underway now would it.

35 they say in Jackson
they also say stay away from it for at least a year
also if your employer pays at least 60% of the premium and rest comes out of your check before taxes, then you pay all 100% after taxes
you would be an idiot to even call

Here's what amuses me.

The Republicans have been "female dogging" and screaming about ACA for the past - what is it now? - three years. They have voted to repeal the whole thing - what is it now? - 40+ times. Now they are complaining because the website's not perfect.

The scene I picture is this: A girl decides to bake a cake for her daddy's birthday. Her jealous little sister decides to unplug the oven, hide the mixing bowl and cake pan, break all of the eggs and pour out all of the milk, then screams her lungs out when the cake isn't ready on time.

It's not that the website is not perfect, it's that the website is non-functional.

After $640.000,000 and 3 years.

$640,000,000. 3 years. I've heard estimates of 1000+ man-years (no idea if that is true, but sounds in line with the $ expended).

No matter how much the little girls itch and moan and vote that is a lot of money and time to yield such a result. You'd think it was a really unimportant project and really didn't matter anyway. Yea boy, I want these people to hurry up and get us to single payer so this ineffectiveness will be eliminated.

But, not to worry. It is all Bush's fault.

PBS Newshour had a segment yesterday about the technological issues users are facing when browsing and selecting a health insurance plan via online health care exchanges. It's not very long, and it's pretty informative.

CLICK ME.

In short, it's going to take "quite a long time" to correct all of the problems plaguing the system right now. In the words of Bill Curtis (CAST Software), "They basically let the American people do the testing. They just simply didn't have enough time to pull off a system this big and this complex. In fact, it's sort of wrong to say it's a system. It's actually a system of systems. We're trying to integrate an awful lot of systems from a number of different sources. That's a huge integration problem, and in many cases, the government doesn't have people that are used to managing that level of complexity."

Aren't you happy there are technological issues that are preventing people from using health care exchanges?

That's funny rock, and I have no love for the republicans, but you miss the point here. it is WAY more complicated to actually run a health care program and all of the claims and payments involved than it is to simply sign people up. And after spending years and millions of dollars of tax payer money they are too inept to even take orders. McDonald's is having no problem taking orders and they have way more people lining up.

I always laugh when they compare these things to girls and it's always men.

(No, I don't take it personally, I just find it ironic.)

The jealous sister had nothing to do with the messed up website.  Daddy wasn't watching what was going on in the kitchen.

I agree 100% that the system that has been established is far more complicated than it need be. A streamlined system that would actually save money would necessitate taking private health insurance out of the loop. But the insurance industry has boug--, err, "contributed to the campaign funds of" too many politicians - across the political spectrum - for that to happen.

HAHAHA!  You think they are complaining because it is "not perfect"?  Are you serious?  THAT is how you would describe the website and it's problems?  Merely "not perfect".  You may claim to be an independent on here, but seems to me that only people who seriously lean left would classify the website as merely "not perfect". 

If I lived in Arizona I would register as an independent also.  The way I understand a semi-closed primary system it is advantageous to register as one - but it wouldn't make me an independent.

No, that's not what he's saying. He's not differentiating between "not perfect" and "god awful." He's pointing out the obvious paradox in a REPUBLICAN openly complaining about hangups in the sign-up process TO ANY DEGREE.

I thought that was a pretty simple concept.

You got it.

If the Republicans were truly against the ACA because of what it is rather than because of who's pushing it, they would naturally be ecstatic over the fact that the website is FUBAR.

Come on! They've been trying to throw roadblocks in the path of ACA for years and now they want us to believe they're "gravely concerned" because the website is difficult to impossible to use. Do any of you really believe that?

An "honest" Republican would state publicly that he or she is happy that the website is screwed up and would send flowers to the developers. The upside is that now we know for certain exactly how many honest Republicans there are in Congress.

Girl decides to buy her dad a cake for his birthday and wants little sister to help pay for it. Little sister kicks and screams because she can't afford it right now. Big sister slaps in on a credit card and little sister will be forced to help pay for it... whether she likes it or not.

It's still a dumb analogy but more accurate than yours.

Don't sweat it, because we all got to choose whether to spend our money on this, right?

Yep.

Since that cannot happen...what, we have to go with a program that is "far more complicated than it need be"?
