Can **anyone** honestly claim to be surprised by this "news"?

Almost all of the many predictions of the ultimate train wreck of Obamacare, the initial stages of which we are now witnessing, are predicated on patterns of human behavior that are as predictable as a sunset.

The only uncertainties about this disaster is how much damage it will do in the short and long term.

I'll be honest. If I was in young and healthy demographic I would put off signing up for insurance for as long as possible; aka the day of or the day before the deadline. I don't think that anyone really expected the young and healthy to be gungho about signing up for insurance as soon as the exchanges opened.

We would have seen this whether or not the website worked on launch or not.

It is just part of the ongoing need to shift the fiscal irresponsibility of the baby boomers to their children and grandchildren. We did not need to save or plan or curtail our spending. Now we need someone to bail us out. Instead of paying for our health care with our savings, we expect our children and grandchildren to subsidize it for us. We have squandered an incredible amount of wealth over the past 40 years.
