Obamacare Slaps Taxes, Fees On Those He Promised To Protect

D-day arrived for Obamacare Saturday, and began with an 11-hour shutdown of — the problem-plagued website intended to provide easy access to affordable insurance for millions of Americans.

The contraption is functioning better but is still terribly inadequate. It can only handle 50,000 users at a time, well short of the volume needed to assist the millions of Americans who must purchase health insurance by year end or face fines.

Those eligible for subsidies must use the system, but often the system can’t verify eligibility for aid. Many are in limbo — applications already initiated are stalled, lost or otherwise can’t be completed.

One must be careful as to what one wishes for...sometimes you get it.
Hope the Obama supporters are happy -- you got what you wanted and destroyed the US health care system.
