Why is our government doing this to those people?

As a person in the MN highrisk pool, I know the fear these folks are living with. I gave up on the MNSure website in November and called the insurer directly and was able to get a plan offered on the website directly from them. That is fine for me because I don't qualify for the premium assistance. I would highly recommend others in my position to call the insurance companies directly and see what they have available. I do have to add that before Obamacare, the insurance companies would have turned me down. So I do support the law but think the management of the website on both the federal and state level is terrible. Heads should roll.

How very ironic that I come to view this article about the ongoing problems with this mess, and right above it is one of those witty Paul Bunyun advertisments.....and this is one day after I read about all the MNsure problems. This might actually be humorous if it wasn't a reminder of a massive waste of our tax dollars, and the fact that millions of Americans are stressed out because their premiums and deductables are increasing, they actually can't keep their plans as promised by Obama over and over, and they can't keep their doctors. Truly pathetic. No wonder people are laughing at America.
