So the Republicans are the problem and aren't acting in good faith according to the MSM, Harry Reid, Obama et al. The House votes on a bill, as does the Senate; but Reid and Obama say they will not negotiate on any issues. The House says they'll fund Obamacare if the Senate agrees with the House Republicans to no longer exempt themselves from Obamacare and Reid and the Senate says "no way". So who is being obstructionist? Who is being arrogant? The House Republicans have offered 9 bills as a compromise; Reid has rejected all of them out of hand. Now answer me this; how are the chefs in the White House 'essential' and keeping their jobs while military and border patrol personell are not getting paid? Obama did sign an executive order reinstating pay for the military but guess who took both of those bodies off of the 'essential' employee list? Democrats using them for political gain. And part of that bill would have repealed the medical device tax; the Dems said no way...

Might as well just make crap up; CBS' Bob Schieffer was interviewing Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn when she commented that Obamacare has only partisan support. Schieffer interrupted her and said that was not true. Now where was he going with that, since all polls show the vast majority of Americans don't like Obamacare and don't want it. Was he going to call her out and tell her that even liberals and Democrats in the citizenry don't like it? No, Schieffer said that polls show Obamacare is popular across the board. He cannot produce one poll showing that Obamacare is popular with any demographic. In fact, CBS/New York Times had JUST released their own poll showing that 51% of Americans oppose Obamacare. I guess that's the new math...

Obamacare is ramping up with great success. The exchanges opened on Tuesday to great fanfare from Obama. Yet every website in every state couldn't handle the traffic. People couldn't get signed up for the exchanges. Problems ranged from not being able to access the website to being told they didn't exist, while they were trying to sign up. It was an absolute train wreck, despite having years and billions of dollars to get the websites ready. If fact HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebilius told NBC News on Monday that success in her mind would be having 7 million people sign up for the exchanges by March 2014. That sounds like a lot but it's only 16.9% of the total number of uninsured HHS said are eligible for the exchanges and need to be served. So what other 'business' would be happy with a 16.9% success rate, especially if the customers were required by law to buy your product? That's your government. I can't wait for them to run healthcare in its entirety.

From at least July to September 15, the government's website promoting Obamacare and encouraging people to enroll touted the ability of people to get "free or low cost healthcare". The website, healthcare.gov touted the topic, “Where can I get free or low-cost care in my community?” the following statement appeared: “If you can’t afford any health plan, you can get free or low-cost health and dental care at a nearby community health center.” Now they have removed the 'free' since that turns out not to be true. When are they going to drop the 'low cost' since we've seen nothing but huge increases in the cost?
