I Think There Is Some Upset About The Unaffordable Care Act

Yahoo news posted an article about some Democrats are beginning to distance themselves from the Unaffordable Care Act, and suggesting various short-term fixes.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama's healthcare law could have a "meltdown" and make it difficult for his Democratic Party to keep control of the U.S. Senate next year if ongoing problems with the program are not resolved, a Democratic senator said on Sunday.

Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia, who has urged delaying a penalty for people who do not enroll for health insurance in 2014 under the law, told CNN that a transitional year was needed for the complex healthcare program, commonly known as Obamacare, to work.
That's not news, really.  What should have the Democrats scared (and Republicans happy, if they paid any attention to the people) is that in 20 hours, more than 10,000 comments have been posted about this story.  I have yet to find one that is positive about Obamacare, or even neutral.  There is a lot of anger.  Now, if only Republican holding office could figure out how to connect to the American people on an issue where they were in the right, and the people are now really upset.  But much of the Republican Party is much more interested in working out a deal on immigration with Obama, to drive the angry population even more firmly away.

Engineering contractors at that certain FW lab we both know (and not love) also dropped health insurance coverage.

I'm just trying to understand how they get away with now only offering only a "checkup" plan that is pretty much worthless for health insurance. It's a $50-$100 a month premium for two doctor visits a year and not much else. Pretty crappy!

So much for the Liar in Chief's claims that everyone is getting better plans....am I the only one that thinks that congressman that called him a liar at that state of the union is now a hero? At the time I'll admit I thought it was a little disrespectful but now it clearly isn't given that serial prevaricators behavior.
