I see the sight crashed again today. Obama must have too much golf scheduled to wait so now he as tomorrow to sign up.

Who can honestly keep track of what has been extended and who got what type of exemptions? What a mess.

At least the GOP had the foresight to propose legislation to delay this train wreck. The obama regime just changes laws as they decree.

..."Who can honestly keep track of what has been extended and who got what type of exemptions? What a mess."... ****************************************** Do you have health care insurance through the individual market? If you have coverage already you have no need to keep track of coverage of others.

It won't matter. Not only is the roll out a disaster, Obamacare itself is the biggest political failure in history. NOBODY has any idea what the hell this is about. Not even the guy who put this together. Nice signature legislation Obama. What a failure.

It nice to see that the subsidies have kicked in for Mr Eichenberger the unemployed, unmarried father whose girlfriend/mother's insurance plan would not cover him. Mr Eichenberger also states he is happy his kids will get FREE preventative health care. Isnt someone paying for the FREE health care and subsidies?

Isn't there some type of constitutional violation being committed by the Obama administration with the constant changes to the law? I know there is some wiggle room but it seems like an entirely different law than what congress passed and the POTUS signed.

Great, if you have been unable to get through to sign up or unable to find an "affordable" plan you are now a procrastinator.

If we didn't know that they have coverage without using the exchanges we would have to think from the comments that most people have no other option but the exchanges. You are not fooling anybody by pretending you don't have what you do.
