    Louisiana’s top health-insurance provider said that not a single person enrolled in a new health-care plan offered through the Affordable Care Act on its first day.

    An executive with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana told the Times-Picayune that the agency was unable to sell the plan because customers were unable to access the HealthCare.gov website due to its website’s sluggishness. “It was not as intense as we had anticipated,” the company’s vice president of communication said of the company’s sales. He urged supporters and critics, however, to “take a deep breath and relax” and assured them that the website would eventually allow consumers to enroll in a plan.

    It looks like our resident spammer has all his cut and pastes with the same topic in place from redstate.com.

    There must be a per thread payout involved.

    yeah, you would think that if you were going to post three items on the same subject, you'd have the basic politeness to put them in one thread. It's just good manners.

    still haven't gotten through to check prices on the Florida plan. These exchanges are working like a well oiled machine.

    It will likely be blamed on Pubs and government shutdown. Or Bush.

    Wonder what the phone call and email counts are pro and con re Doofuscare are now to all these house members and senators. The longer this goes on, the more the pressure builds for a one year delay on the fine/mandate piece for individuals.

    Good manners would be not forcing people to do something they do not wish to do.

    Fred - did you sign up for this law that you seem to defend at every turn? How about River, Ben and 108?

    I have credible coverage through my employer, so I'm in compliance with the individual mandate and don't need to purchase insurance on the exchange. In full compliance over here.

    Of course you have credible coverage and not Obumacare. You'd be put to death before you got fixed with that garbage.

    I'm not sure you understand what Obamacare is. It's a private insurance plan that has to meet certain standards to be compliant. Mine is.
