#1 As if we need further proof that open rebellion is now necessary; I can't print the remaining stream of thought, like I need to...

And - Good Morning, NSA! You guys manage to put those server fires out yet?

#2 The site is cratering because even the webservers are appalled at the surprising costs of 'free' health care.

#3 "See price in cart!"

#4 In short you have to provide all your personal information before you can see the price list - because then you already have a stake in the game.

I shudder to think how 'secure' the system is... How many Snowden's are just waiting to harvest all that personal information...

#5 The paranoid side of me suspects many of the website problems aren't problems so much as laying the groundwork of blame for why nobody signed up.

#7 It is NOT "crashing". Service is being blocked to forestall the negative impacts [and press] of sticker shock. Once the budget is passed and Obamacare is funded, look for an amazing system recovery.

It's already been done.
P.S. They already have your email address book(s)

#9 You have to agree to the contract before you see the price...

#10 Seems everyone getting Dear John letters is going to ehealthinsurance.com. I took a quick look - works great. You can check on subsidies too (to the extent anyone can calculate it).

So: why was it necessary to blow $650m on a redundant site that doesn't work? Seems the only point was to allow the government to assemble a massive database of sensitive personal data, to be used "for any lawful government purpose," LOL. Like an IRS audit if you're cheering for the wrong team, I presume.

We had to pass the bill before we could see what was in it too.

#12 Major Tax increases for middle class if there are any middle class left.

Pretty much how medical care is now anyway.
