I had a theory that the congress and other people who oppose obamacare aka The Affordable Care Act are purposely making it inaccessible by perhaps sending in a significant amount of traffic to the site. It sounds plausible given how much effort the obamacare opposes are putting in to stop the law or to delay it or also to undermine it. What do you think?

 

 

Clarification:

Healthcare.org is accessible but signing up is difficult to impossible and there has been a significant amount of reporting on this.

If there was evidence of a denial of service attack on the website then I would have thought the US government would be keen to point that out.

There has been a significant amount of reporting that people aren't able to sign up because its being supposedly overloaded. Obamacare opposers sending dns attacks is just my conspiracy theory (why this is in conspiracy section)

I haven't read anything that would indicate this, but it wouldn't surprise me at all.

I don't think I've ever seen a political party have so little respect for the president as the GOP has right now for Obama. It's sad to see them act like little children that didn't get their way and now feel like they should throw a tantrum.

 

So yeah, it wouldn't surprise me that the GOP is doing everything they can to make it hard for people to sign up for ACA

This is the best example of FUD I've ever seen .... You get this crazy a$$ed idea with no proof and try to pass this off as a plausible idea.. really??

Why dont you take this garbage to 4chan, it'll fit right in..

Is there proof that obamacare opposers are not causing the problems on healthcare.org? From what I have seen, it might be very possible. The affordable care act opposers are determined to take the law down at all costs. I would think they would want the obamacare act to look flawed in the beginning to prove a point. The Ted Cruz guy is like the ring leader of this 'take down obamacare' group.

What do you mean? Is there proof of something that hasn't happened? I'd have to say no. Where are *you* exactly having an issue with healthcare.gov? If it's after you select your state it may be your state's exchange site that has an issue.

I already have health insurance, but healthcare.gov has been widely reported with problems and glitches from a vast amount news sources

This needs to be moved to Conspiracy, or to the Joke forum'...

If you look, this is in the conspiracy section, the conspiracy section is more appropriate, because this no joke. There's no proof if the GOP people are intentionally causing the problems or are not, which is why this is a conspiracy
