    I had a good experience on the site on 10/13/13. I visited it for the first time and had no problems setting up an account. Answering the application questions was easy enough, but the site did get hung up as I waited for it to show me my policy choices. I refreshed the browser a couple of times and after about 3 minutes it showed my about 30 policy choices and the entire session took me about 20 minutes. It was not as smooth as buying on Amazon, but it was acceptable and not the disaster that is being reported in the media.

    The compromise is that Mr Obama gave a delay to Businesses which Republicans supposedly champion. If Mr Obama didn't do that, they would just want that. Any strings to pull Healthcare a loose is what they want. Talk can be had about improving parts of healthcare but its researched that delaying individual mandate will hurt the law. So again, anything that will make the law better will be considered, not poison pills just to advance republican political power. Ted Cruz is similar to Hitler.....it's very dangerous to believe in crazy stuff but then be smart enough to trick people to believe in your Cult.

    Computers crashing because of an overload of Americans trying to get Healthcare is Great, a positive and is far better than little people looking to sign up and no computers crashing. Leave it to republicans to find a positive and turn it to a negative and get media to repeat that story. Millions of people are seeking affordable, fair, practical healthcare and they have it in front of them. Computers crashing is equivalent to people waiting in long lines for the new iPhone.....there is a strong demand and people will do what's necessary to get it.
