    "Think Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid". We are thinking about those things. Do you realize the waste and fraud and inefficency that runs through those programs? Plus can we really afford another huge expensive buracracy on top of those? To pay for the obligations we have now, our country needs to go on a business growth rate of about 8 to 10 percent a year for the next decade. Who do you think would be best to get the country moving in that direction? The high taxing, high regulating Democrats, or the less taxing less regulating Republicans?

    I'm curious.

    Is he going to get back our 600 million that we ALREADY spent on the website?

    Is he going to get the people back their jobs who were laid off as a result of Obamacare?

    Is he going to get people back their full-time jobs who were reduced to less than 30 hrs.?

    Last but not least; is he going to figure out a way to pay for the wealth-transfer called Obamacare?

    If the answer to ANY of the above questions is no then I would conclude all he's doing is "duck and cover" for the emperor in chief.

    Many have loss insurance coverage.
    Fewer people are insured now than five years ago, and much money has been spent.

    Our commander doesn't know of:

    * the glitches
    * the IRS scandal
    * Benghazi
    * the economy being this bad
    * what happened to the shovel ready jobs
    * solydra going belly up

    Can't blame George Bush for this!

    It's time for patience. ACA is a complex and comprehensive solution to the healthcare cost problems. Although law, It is not yet underway, which is scheduled for Jan '14. The registration issues will be fixed and the ACA will be implemented. A year from now we will all wonder what the big hoopla was about the early clitches. Think Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid (also complex and comprehensive solutions).

    I can see why they are having problems. They only had YEARS to prepare.

    It's all smoke and mirrors.

    This guy is good at what he does, and indeed may make major improvements. (Although the Obamcare website is so messed up that making improvements is something any teen geek could do overnight.)

    The real goal is to provide a new scapegoat so that when HHS Sec. Sebelius gets thrown under the bus for incompetently managing the program from the start, there will be someone new as the figurehead. Obama can then brag about firing Sebelius, and buy time "to let the new guy fix it" but all the while defelcting criticism of his own incompetence and malfeasance..

    Regardless, Obamacare is just an impossible scheme which is designed to fail, and thus create a demand for a single payer government health care system to "fix the problems."

    If you thought healthcare was expensive or hard to get before Obamacare, or even after it is imposed upon the unwilling citizenry, just wait until totally government run healthcare arrives. You cannot afford to get sick then!

    "trusted fixer?" What, pray tell, has he fixed? The Obama economy still stinks, his foreign policy is in shambles, and his relations with congress is nonexistent. A "fixer"? Paleeze, give up the lying nonsense and lead the country, or resign and go play golf.

    Obama is a failure.........surprised he hasn't recommended we grab a number and wait in line to sign up for un-affordable care act, just like the DMV? 2014 can't come fast enough,

    There's the solution.
    Cash-for-Clunkers doled out $4,500 checks, made used cars more expensive for all of us, and cost the government $24,000 PER CAR.
    I can hardly wait to see what he does with ACA enrollment.
