I don't think the federal government has been adequately able to figure it out themselves.

Not a clue. This mess was passed for political reasons and nothing more. The best thing that could happen is that it just goes away!

A large portion of the poor Dems now realize it's an expensive mess that screwing up a lot of jobs ( and lives) but are unwilling and unable to say so because Pelosi and Reed say that would be betrayal of the PARTY (screw the people).

How could any of our elected officials in any legislative government body explain any law they pass, even if they wanted too. The could not possible read them before they pass them. Some of these laws are hundreds or even thousands of pages long. I am guessing most of our law makers read precious few if any of the laws they pass and that is at all levels of government local, state and federal. If they do read them they probably just read them to make sure their pet portion of it is in there.

They keep saying "affordable" with a wink and a smile, it must be a good thing.

It needed to be passed so that we could then read to see what's in it. The frustrating thing for me is that if Obamacare burns all these people with increased costs and other issues and the villagers come out with their pitch forks, the republican party will actually be blamed for it when it was them who tried to kill it. You would think that conservatives could sit back and laugh at the debacle, but with all the low information voters who believe whatever spin they hear in the media, surely the conservatives will shoulder the blame.

Your not going to kill it. It's the law for now. Time to grow up.

It will either fail or work.

To shut down our gov. hurt the edonomy,and it's citizens is BS,

This Bs should have been dealt with back in April.But no.

We have to play the squeeze game,

They say they do the will of the people. 70% say no shut down.

This is not about republicans,democrats ,liberals,conservatives,tea party etc,

It's about a country who is sinking,who looks bad to the world because we can't agree on anything.

The blame belongs to all with their me attitude

I don't think most of them could, they didn't even know what was in it when it was passed. But the few that could explain it don't want to, because it isn't designed to do what they say and they've known that from the start. Obamacare is designed for one sole purpose, to create a situation where more government intervention is needed. It's a move towards single payer. Harry Reid has already verbalized that, it's not a huge conspiracy. You just won't hear them talk about that. And sadly, a lot of the public is too stupid to listen. Some of us who are tuned in get sick and tired of the dog and pony show, but we fail to realize that they're putting on the show because many people are buying tickets.

It is the LARGEST legislative disaster in the history of the nation, and it was brought to you completely, 100%, by democrats. It is resulting, already, in massively higher premiums, and in more limited acess and choice in care. IT is the EXACT OPPOSITE of what obama and pelosi said it would be.

It should be repealed, TODAY, and all those radical leftists and marxists who voted for it ought to be thrown in the streets.

When Obama was signing (Romneycare) into law after he stole it and destroyed it with all his other rhetoric he threw in it just so he could call it his own. There was 34 million uninsured. The numbers came out three days ago and NOW there are 48 million uninsured. People have been dumping their healthcare insurance plans anticipating that big savings that they believe Obamacare is going to give them. Not to mention employer base "hatchet" jobs taking place because of Obama's crap law. That number was just for the year of 2012. They believe that number has grown higher for 2013. When you think about it. If you were a healthy person and you could dump your health care for a year why stay in an insurance plan of those monthly premiums. Saving that money was ideal for many. That is just that many people that were not paying into the insurance pool. What Obama care soar those insurance premiums. It is going to be a total meltdown of the health care industry.
