While a very small number have signed up, most are either those with major existing medical conditions or they have signed up for Medicaid, which really is just a shell program. For example, if you are forced into Medicaid (because of financial limitations or because none of the other overpriced programs will take you), if your problems are serious and you die, your loved ones will find out the hard way. The state or feds will come after them for payment, including the taking of property. It's already happening.
But getting back to the mechanics of the website, a knowledgeable source said yesterday that success will be judged by whether or not at least 50,000 potential customers can go on line at once. Can you imagine Amazon having this sort of limitation. They would be out of business.
This is just a symptom of the problem and their actions certainly serve as no cure. Trying to sign up people without full disclosure of the impact is dishonest and needs to fail. Why would anyone want to sign up for a program that doesn't give cost factors and all other information needed prior to applying? Which doctors will be covered? What is the full cost? What about security issues with using your computer? Why are you asked to pay for so many things that you will never need? Why are young adults paying so much for so little, in fact, everyone who is healthy for that matter?
I think deep down inside we all know the answers. The program is a sham and a fraud. It is just a redistribution of wealth and a means of controlling everything you have and do a la George Orwell. Instead of worrying about a ridiculous website, we need to be worrying about the real issue here: the destruction of the best healthcare system in the world and its replacement with a Third World program. Welcome to Cuba North.
Is anyone in Washington other than Ted Cruz and a few other patriots listening? Probably not, so it is up to us, the American people, to light a spark for Liberty using this issue as a major point of action. Does anyone else feel this way? Let's get to work.
Despite this disaster, have a nice weekend and relax but be ready to turn on the heat on Monday. Start calling each elected official you have in Washington and tell them this is unacceptable as a program. Repeal and replace it with a good quality patient-doctor private system that insures care and dignity.
God be with you and God bless America and don't forget church tomorrow.
