No way, everything is just fine. Ignore the man behind the curtain. This is just the beginning of the end. Wait until people actually see How much is going to cost them, oh wait, that part of the program isn't even built yet. But don't worry, the Obumbler is on to bigger and more important things like income inequality.

“Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured… but not everyone must prove they are a citizen. “And now, any of those who refuse, or are unable, to prove they are citizens will receive free insurance paid for by those who are forced to buy insurance because they are citizens.”

"A child may have been listed as a parent, a name may have been misspelled, or an address may be wrong."------ If the person seeking the insurance is the one entering this info onto the website, how does it get changed? This is equivalent to sending someone an e-mail inviting them to dinner on Friday and when they get the e-mail it says lunch on Saturday.

If the CEO of a private company made the promises that Obama made about the ACA and delivered those promises as poorly as the gov't has delivered ACA, the states attornies general of all 50 states would have that CEO in jail by now for fraud. So why is it acceptable for the gov't to act this way?

Obamacare is an obscene joke, and the American taxpayer is the punchline.

Considering the complexities involved, 25% error rate first time out of the gate is probably pretty good. I don't find this alarming at all.

I'm hearing more reports of people who bought on state exchanges, Later finding out they don't have insurance after paying for it. There are no traces of where the money went, despite the payment being taken out of their checking accounts... Could they have been hacked?

"If the person seeking the insurance is the one entering this info onto the website, how does it get changed?" .... mapping errors in the interfaces. And those problems could be on the insurers side not just the federal side.

I don't find this alarming at all. --------------------I wouldn't find that alarming either, UNTIL, i get that bill from the hospital for tens of thousands because they made a mistake and you DON"T have the insurance you thought you did.
