CNN Breaking News: Only a measly 26,794 completed enrollment for the Affordable Care Act through Healthcare.gov. To put it in prospective, 26,794 people is about the population of  a medium sized town.

If the website was actually working to full capacity 26,000 would be really really bad, but that number makes sense considering the issues

I thought the health care system in America was always kinda screwed.

I had no problems with my coverage until this month... our plan was classified as "too good" basically (it would of been classified as a Cadillac plan under the new rules, so to avoid the excise tax on it, we had to change the plan structure), we use to have zero co-pay for doc visits and $20 co-pay for ER visits which was waved if you were admitted to the hospital.... we were just told we NOW had a $500 deductible to fit into the current requirements..... great, now I have to pay WAY more to get the same coverage that I already pay $18,650 a year for, if I had kids under this plan we'd be almost $25k a year under a family plan.. (paid through employer technically, but that is the cost of the plan for me and my spouse)!

Republicans do public health care?  I thought their opinion was 'just die already.'

Actually the Republicans do have a plan, HR 2300.

 

It repeals the Affordable Healthcare Act, but puts in tax-credits for individuals who want to go buy their own insurance.
