“People seem to forget they have no plan to stop these insurance companies from taking all of our money. Kudos to anyone trying to do something. They just take money from all their donors to say no to everything. Then they collect a nice salary, pension with great insurance. Most of them are millionaires. Very few can identify with what most of the people in this country go through every day. Didn't the Republicans run on jobs? Where are they? Look how fast the house passed a bill last week but they claim no time to do anything before the new year? Yes there is time for one thing they do well, go on vacation.”
“Thank the GOP. Issa is telling people your private information is compromised.
Give it a chance.”

“Issa is uneducated. Currently all your data is maintained on web pages at your insurance company. You can't enroll your child in school without giving their SS#. Everytime you call your insurance company for claim information you give the person on the phone your SS#. Every charge card that is opened all of your private information is required. Issa just likes to act like he works with FOX.”
“You can sign up by phone until it is all said and done. You can get stuff online or call the 800 number. Every time I call social security for my mom I wait 30 minutes. Eventually I get through and get it done.”
“That happens all the time in the school system. When it all went online, many did not know how to use it. The rule was if you failed to enroll, you were put in the cheapest plan. That saves them a ton of money for people that don't know what is happening. Don't worry about the part time people. For decades, they have not gotten benefits for simply working two hours less a day. That is a real tragedy.”
“The ability to do things with massive numbers using the internet usually results in blockages and frustration. Anyone that is an avid user know this. If they rolled out a few states at a time instead of the entire country things would be different. Ask Jen bush and rick Scott how much trouble it has been testing students online each year. The first few years was a nightmare. The Internet is not perfect.”

“The idea was to have each state individually involved.
But the Supreme Court blocked that and made it voluntary, and many red state governors have opted out.
“About ten years ago, our school system superintendent required every school teacher to start using the electronic gradebook. Many were prepared to use it and others were frightened to death. Some schools had been using it for years at their own expense. His requirements were an all or nothing approach. He wanted all using it. It was a total disaster. The servers could not handle the overload. They were crashing everyday and teachers were in an uproar. The teacher's union intervened and they did the roll out in a longer fashion until all schools were using it. In my humble opinion, Obama should have rolled this out a few states at a time starting with states that embraced it. Once they were up and running, bring on the next group of states. There are too many people in this country that need to log on and too many republican governors that don't want it to work. It was a recipe for disaster. If you had a pre-exisiting condition or had no insurance, you are probably thrilled to finally get insurance.”

“What about all the Democratic governors that didn't set up exchanges for their states?”
“Those stuck between retirement and Medicare age are getting the shaft for years. We don't qualify for anything. Our school system shafts its employees every year. They self-insured to save money and it did nothing but cost us higher co-pays and no accountability. This I thought was the big reason for the overhaul which was long overdue.”
