If the advocates of the ACA were under the impression that the whole country was just going to run to sign up for this thing as if it was free tickets to Disneyland, then they were wrong. Very wrong. Just as wrong as Bush and the WMD fiasco was. And, if not corrected, the ACA will become just as costly. Sometimes politicians, particularly long term entrenched ones in D.C., need a real world reality check before embarking upon these "pie in the sky" programs. Which brings me to why it would have been so nice for term limits to have been ruled constitutional. Then people like Hatch, Reid, Pelosi, Boehner, McCain, ect. would all have been long gone befoe this mess had been instigated in the first place. And personally, if I didn't know that Obama was gone in 3, I be gone for good.

There is only one way to make this work. The threat of imprisonment for non-compliance. That is what any Dictator would do.

This all comes back to us needing a single payer system for all. No insurance necessary.

@ Hutterite. Obamacare IS a single payer system. The young and healthy paying for the old and sick! What more do you want?

We don't need a USSR healthcare program we need an American one.....so throw out the USSR liberals in Washington and let's take back our freedom...putting the responsibility of ghetto old poor choices of the past is not the fault of our young Americans...so stop punishing them....they already have a 17 trillion debt they didn't create that you old farts did....let's tax all the old people and get this debt paid and give our young people freedom that we had and choose not to accept by electing Roosevelt, and Obama types!....

"Lack of younger enrollees a threat to Obama's health care law insurance exchanges" no kidding- this is what the conservatives had been saying from the very beginning. The low information voters i.e liberals are now beginning to see why this monstrosity cannot and should not be allowed to work because it takes away our freedom - You cannot force someone to do something, it will never work in the good ol' USA

Obama has tried some pathetic stunts to lure young people, including his ad that shows a young women with contraceptives (covered by Obamacare) in hand, coming on to a young man for a casual relationship.
Then there are the NFL and movie star endorsements.
Would someone explain how our GOVERNMENT got involved in these sales pitches.

KDave has the right idea. What they'll have to do is up the penalty for not enrolling until it eventually equals (then exceeds) the cost of the insurance.

Stay healthy my friends. If they can't even get a website to work, think of how bad it's going to be when you actually have to use the services. Think of the fraud. Think of the resources doctors and hospitals will have to dedicate to working in the government system (and these are resources that will taken from providing quality care)

Remember your last experience and the DMV. That was nothing compared to what's coming.

Again, Stay Healthy.

Becase all doctors are excellent website designers and vice-versa. What in the world does one have to do with the other?

The last time I was at the DMV, there were 14 of 16 windows open. I waited less than 10 minutes and was out of there with my business completed.

Give it time. If everything's not alright in 36 months Hillary will get er done.

The only threat to the ACA…

was the x42 failed attempts by the Republican dominated House to defund and repeal the ACA.

Which 1) Accomplished nothing, since the Republican party has no alternative to the ACA.

and 2) Cost the US tax payer $50 million dollars.

Socialism has been revealed - Obama will own this to his grave.

Saint George, UT

Perhaps this is one way the younger generation can strike back at an older generation of Democratic and Republican lawmakers that is stealing their future. Good for them! Repeal Obamacare now!
