You Say You Have Insurance? That’s Nice

    So the problems are:
    ‘initial confusion ‘, the potential for ‘bad press’, problems associated with ‘the law’s launch’, ‘access in name only’, and the potential for people to ‘form a settled negative opinion’. It sounds like those are pretty minor problems compared to what has been reported elsewhere.

      The real problem is that it’s unaffordable to the middle class.

    Yes, I m afraid I have to agree with the previous to commenters. The website and the teething problems mentioned here are small beer if the reports are true of increased costs and reduced coverage including very high deductibles for people who were satisfied with their previous cover. When you start with the most expensive medical system in the world @16% of GDP and try to extend coverage to everyone then it is very likely that the reports of major adverse structural and cost changes to insurance policies may be just the beginning of the real implementation problems.

    The ACA will weather this storm too as the main stream media will ignore this to focus all their resources on a really major problem: a few traffic jams on the George Washington Bridge
