    The website might get fixed, but what about the law. That's what's screwing you over...not the website.

    If the site was working better more people would be even more outraged right now.

    That is the point most people aren't getting....if the website was perfect....more Americans would actually see how bad this law is screwing every one of us!

    The only thing worse that the website is the actual law itself! This whole monstrosity should be scrapped!

    Wait until low and middle income Americans suddenly realize that they have a NEW monthly bill for increasingly expensive Obama-mandated insurance that they cannot afford -- even with a partial taxpayer-funded subsidy -- or else face an Obama-mandated fine from the IRS! What's more: Low and middle income Americans -- living month-to-month -- are facing unreachable deductibles and co-pays!

    Even though Liberals cite partial subsidies and caps on cost, they are showing themselves to be completely out-of-touch with individuals and families that are struggling to pay their bills WITHOUT a looming, mandated insurance purchase! When you have $0 left over each month (which was why you couldn't afford insurance BEFORE Obamacare), what makes Liberals think that they can afford it simply because politicians -- like Obama -- demand it?

    The funny thing to come from all of this is that we are FINALLY having a debate over Obamacare THREE YEARS after we were told "We have to pass it to understand it" and after it was rushed through Congress and "deemed passed." Now that the dust has settled and people have actually read and understood this monstrosity, it is failing even more miserably.

    Obama and other Liberals LIED -- over and over again -- as a smokescreen.

    Liberals are facing the music and hoping that their spin about their LIES will cover the fact that they knew -- all along -- that this junk healthcare was an overly burdensome, intrusive debacle in which people would lose insurance, lose doctors, would face increasing cost in premiums, deductibles and co-pays and seeing coverage diminished.

    Would anybody in their right mind drop their current medical insurance coverage to get insurance from these guys. One of the things I always told my daughter is "if this is how the guy treats you when you're dating, can you imagine what it'll be like when you're married to him?" The same thing applies over here. If you're struggling just to sign up, can you imagine the nonsense you'd have to go through to get treatment or benefits?

    @BravoJuliet But like most people in an abusive relationship, they'll make excuses. It'll get better. They didn't mean to harm us. You can't expect the taxpayer to pay for everything.

    So she's 'back peddling' that's a big surprise! Didn't she just say "I don't work for the people". Oh Yes you
    do! She's an arrogant, obnoxious 'woman'. to be polite. Yes you do! So does Obama and the rest of this
    administration, it's just that they've got half the country thinking WE work for them!!! Health care is a mess, and it will only get worse. Our premiums have gone up and will go up again in January...and our
    health care will never be as good. Remember when Obama said. "If you like your current Health Care , you can keep it"? He said it many times since 2009, well I guess that's just ONE more lie you told. Mr. President. Does anyone in your administration tell the truth about anything??!

    No ma'am I'm sorry to say there is no room for the truth in those that Govern . They know the truth is not what people want to hear but it's the lie they want to believe that will always be told.

    Is anyone here watching the hearing? It's surreal, all the D's are telling us that all is fine, there is no problem at all, that the cancelled insurance is fine because under ACA great and better insurance is available. No mention of the fact that it costs about 100% more or more, no mention that the universal coverage deemed appropriate by the nanny state includes so much that so many do not need or want. How many need maternity coverage, pediatric eye exams, PAP smears, mammograms, Viagra, mental health coverage, drug abuse coverage and so on? The web site is the least of the problems, it may or may not be able to be fixed, it may or may not protect the privacy of those who log in, but bottom line, the whole thing, the ACA, needs to be put on hold, the kinks and unintended consequences worked out and the cost evaluated.

    "You deserve better..." Apparently, she's only talking to those who agree with her agenda. Those who oppose have no representation.

    That would depend on what the meaning of the word 'fixed' is. Given enough time and taxpayer's money just about ANYTHING can be fixed. I'd rather see the PLAN ITSELF be 'fixed'. Why would a 67 year old man have to pay premiums for pre-natal care, maternity expenses, post-natal care, pediatric care, abortion services, etc. The one-size-fits-all results in only huge profits for insurance companies on the backs of the taxpayers who often DON'T NEED AND WILL NEVER NEED the services that they are paying for!!!

    I would not spend any more of the people's money on the sinking ship. And I would also fire Sibelius. If she was in private business working for a company she would be receiving pink slips all around.

    "SEBELIUS:'YOU DESERVE BETTER, I APOLOGIZE' "

    This also holds true that the US taxpaying citizen deserves better representation in the White House and both houses of Congress. Most of these fly turds forced legislation upon us that a majority did not want by lying to us, back-room deals and bribery……..and the lying continues on a daily basis!
    Attention obama, carney, pelosi, reed, etal:
    How is it waking up everyday and contemplating, "How are we going to lie to them (citizens) today?"
    Nobody should comply with this mountain of manure program. If it is this difficult to enroll, expect the rest to be as difficult or worse. Just say NO!!!!!!! Civil disobediance are two appropiate words that come to mind. A few words to the NSA if they are reading the expressions of my right to free speech: SHOVE IT!!!!! Get a freakin' life!!!!!!!

    I must say..."somewhat." The website, in all probability, can and will be fixed. But, the product being offered is absolutely full of smoke and mirrors. It is one hell of an imposition upon productive Americans who have always paid their fair share of taxes and took care of their own needs. Yet, the very folks who are the backbone of our economy are now being forced to pay more. It is always the middle class who get screwed.

    With Tea Partyists, Glenn Beckistan, & rest of the ultra ignorant right fighting tooth & nail to race the U.S. to the bottom of the developed nations list, this is a small issue. The law's not perfect, but the right refused to offer any constructive input in its development. However, it's a start. Let's attempt to see what it does, and does not do. Then build on that. If you think this is so bad, let's hear a reasonable alternative.

    Incorrect, the Republicans were shut out of the whole thing. You know that so why perpetuate this lie? Obama told them, "Elections have consequences - I won." The R's had many good things that they suggested all of which were thrown into the trash and then the D's held their secret meetings - behind locked doors BTW - to write the law. You may like ACA, you may think Obama is a God for all I care, but please don't foist this lie on those of us who absolutely know differently.

    Not destroying a system that works for most of us would be a considered "better".

    Why not have a system that is bases on the à la carte idea. The insurance companies would offer some basic policies that a person or business could either take or choose to build off of. If you decide you want a smaller deductible but not have mental health coverage, that's YOUR choice. If you decide you want more prescription coverage but no chiropractic, that's YOUR choice. If you want a higher deductible and lower payments, that's YOUR choice.

    The arrogance to think that government knows what's best for you and should mandate coverages like birth control is beyond belief. People should be able to CHOOSE what coverage THEY want based on their health, income, etc. It shouldn't be up to the government to tell us.

    @LGRepublican The arrogance is a liberal trait. THEY think they know far better than anyone how we should live, spend our money and what sort of health care we need. You are correct, not everyone needs all these "basic" coverages deemed essential by the libs. And they are expensive. The main goal is to funnel as many healthy, high paying customers to the ACA exchanges. They NEED them to keep the cost down. The more healthy and high paying people in the system will pay for all those who are ill and paying lower fees for higher usage.

    Current system on the web site does not work, the alternative would be keep what we had and work this whole law and computer system over until you get it right, then bring it out. That would require a delay until the law is totally revamped and all the nonsense taken out of it. Then and only then will the ACA start to work and promises kept.

    I'm confident that a lot of money is going to be spent fixing a site that should have been delayed and properly tested before it was launched. The launch was a political decision made by Obama and company and once again a decision that in the end will cost the taxpayer a ton of money. I suspect the entire ACA will come crashing down because young people are not going to buy insurance at a high rate so that older people get it at a cheap rate.
