Yep! (to coin the north woods vernacular), It is very apparent that from the disagreements, that most people love their government control without getting off their butts and working to earn something to make a freedom filled living. government handouts and control. Makes for a wonderfully controlled populace. Pay more for those that do nothing. Health care is not a right. Re-distribution of wealth from the wealthy that make more than $100,000.00 to the lower life human beings on gubment assistance. How many people that disagreed get gubment money fo nuthin? (gawd its a hope and change thing!)

You may want to look into the pre existing conditions clause a bit more. What the ACA DIDNT do was put restrictions on cost for pre existing conditions. I know people who are lower middle class and BECAUSE of the pre existing conditions clause they will have to pay $600 a month even AFTER qualifying for the full subsidy. Forget the website debacle! It's just a website. This entire law is a complete mess! Horrible!

I do hope it works but right now it seems to me that they are saying, "The tire is only flat on the bottom". Perhaps people who have actually had some experience doing something besides being "talkers" putting it together would have helped. I still believe is is 80% ego and 20% caring as far as Obama is concerned. Has he ever admitted to making a mistake on ANYTHING-no. If igt collapses around his ears he will still say it`s working.

Guff - it hasnt started yet. It will be several years before we know whether its a success or failure. It doesn't affect you. It doesn't affect me or most other people. It will help many millions. Will it be more disruptive than when HMO's were introduced in the 90's? We will find out. Why not hope for success?

I`m on medicare and not affected, {YET}, But it seems to me that all the supporters of this law need a refresher course in math. IT AIN`T WORKING and no amount of excusing the incompetence will make it work.

The New York website works just fine. I have helped a few people use it to shop for and purchase a policy. The federal website was a disaster at first but is also working well now and I have purchased insurance using it.

The people who are most against this law actually know little about how it even effects them. They simply are out to destroy a President at whatever cost.

Why does this opinion sound more like the ultra-conservative Ogden Newspapers, owners of the ADE, than local views? Why is ADE towing the Republican conservative line if indeed it is independent in its views?

Wow. Amazing. So many people indoctrinated into believing that "health care" is a right to give away to people that earn or do nothing at the expense of hard working true Americans. Disgraceful. True welfare and Socialism.

Problem is that no one, including Obama knows what's in it. Every "revolation" from the ACA is BAD news for someone. Check out "New Affordable Care US health plans will exclude top hospitals".

The problems are with the web site not the ACA. The biggest challenge the Affordable Care Act has is that the Republicans are trying their best to sabotage it. Its one thing to not lift a finger to help, and quite another to prevent any fixes. Even worse is trying to get healthy young men not to enroll so that others have to pay more in the hopes that it fails.
