They just want to show off images of passengers of the Obama "Titanic" before it goes down.

Still zero honesty from the Obama administration! Please put up the faces of some of the millions of middle class Americans who's healthcare premiums, co-pays and deductibles have exploded because of Obamacare. Put up the faces of some of those who have lost their healthcare insurance or lost their full time jobs because of Obamacare! Put up the faces of some of the thousands of doctors who will not accept Obamacare insurance policies. Put up or shut up, please!

Can you imagine how big that website would need to be to show faces of people who have lost their insurance or are paying more for the policy they have actually been able to keep?

If you chance to meet a frown, do not let it stay, quickly turn it upside down and smile that frown away. Isn't Obamacare just wonderful!

Obama has stooped to a new low - testimonials of his failed product.

this is so insulting and angering. Can you imagine if you were one of millions who have had their insurance cancelled due to Obamacare mandates and you have been trying for 2 weeks now to navigate successfully through the Obamacare web app but have been unable to without getting errors or system down or a dozen other errors and now you see all these sugary little people appearing on the web site saying everything is great. A REAL leader would look out for the poor folks getting their polices cancelled not the 5 or 6 who by dumb luck were able to get on to the site and sign up ....probably for a FREE policy too....which only adds to the insult. Barack's approval nationwide polling numbers are nearly in the 30% range now ----lowest ever---but the man just stays with his base and the propaganda.

This is just the first Phase. Wait until next year when the 6 people who signed up on the first day, and others start trying to use their insurance and discover that Obama also lied about being able to keep their doctor.

And right before next year's election, millions more people will discover that their employer provided plans are also being cancelled due to the expiration of the grandfather clause, and the employer mandate will begin to kick in.

"McNaughton, a student at Valencia College, said he will be paying $70 per month for a plan that covers "anything I could possibly need." That's about what he's paying now for a catastrophic plan that covers only three doctor visits per year. McNaughton said he looks forward to not having to guess whether he needs antibiotics for the sinus infections he gets every winter."

Of course this doesn't say what McNaughton does at present and whether he is receiving a subsidy to bring his premium in at $70/mo. Nor does how much he is receiving if there is a subsidy involved.

Remember when barack promised every American who wanted to keep their plan could?


Several news agencies now reporting up to 5% of people wont be able to keep their plans. And 5% means millions of people.

well barack?

Did you lie on purpose or just not understand obamacare?

Anybody can find an exception to the rule for just about anything. The farce is in trying to pass those exceptions off as the norm. People having a positive experience with this train wreck are truly the exceptions and in a very small minority.

The norm are the millions of people who have yet to be able to navigate the system. Most of those who finally do are finding out their insurance costs are often doubling or even more, especially when considering their deductibles and co-pays are also going up. Most people's experiences are making the President look like a falsehood-teller for literally promising everyone they could keep their existing insurance policies and that most people's rates would go down. Not even close to what has been happening.

The democrats will be paying for this debacle big time in the 2014 elections.

At casino poker tables, the house employs people to play and enthusiastically support the game. These are called shills and they lure the naive into joining the game.
