    Despite all the whailing by the GOP, the general population is beginning to see Obamacare in a more positive way. I suspect this is because they notice a lowering of their healthcare costs, and the fact that those who were rejected for coverage, can now get coverage. This program has a long way to go of course, but if this trend continues, the GOP is going to look even more foolish than it does now.

    Maybe it's because they believe Obama's website's rate quotes:

    The death panels are roaming the neighborhoods shooting people on sight. The Tea Party tried to tell us.

    Wow, you really are ignorant aren't you? The death panels are the people put into place to tell who gets the life saving procedure and who doesn't. It is needed to be able to afford public healthcare.

    Yeah....and maybe it's because the plan is doing what it's supposed to do.

    Very ignorant reply. You should get your information outside of Faux News or right-wing AM radio hacks. No ACA panel will be addressing a specific person. Wow, the sheer stupidity of Eladar. You and your ilk are being exposed and will be exposed for the liars you are.

    The ACA will become even more popular and a campaign advantage for Democrats in 2014 and 2016. The GOP and Tea Party will have pie on their idiot face for crying ACA wolf.

    In any case, millions of Americans will enroll, and the ACA is here to stay. That is the bottom line.

    So if it is not done on an individual basis, then it really isn't a death panel. I love the way you rationalize your blind faith.

    Eladar- Give it up. You can nit pick all you want, but Obamacare will continue to gain in popularity, and no amount of debating points you might score here is going to change that. So please, find something else to babble about.

    We'll see if it gains popularity. Give it a year or two and we'll see.

    How can you possibly know the AHCA will become more popular when people can't even find out how much their health insurance will cost?

    Some people claim the website failures are intentional. I don't know if that is true, but it does seem hard to believe a website can fail that badly by accident. The DHS has no problem with their website to sign up for food benefits. Did they just get lucky?

    The ACA will fail so badly, that Americans will revolt and probably demand a single payer plan. That was the plan from the beginning.

    There it is. The ACA will fail, fail badly, but it will not get blamed. It will be those damned insurance companies.
