WASHINGTON — White House officials, fearful that the federal health care website may again be overwhelmed this weekend, have urged their allies to hold back enrollment efforts so the insurance marketplace does not collapse under a crush of new users.
And who says the White House doesn’t have a sense of humor? But for some reason we are reminded of the Yogi Berra line: "Nobody goes there anymore. It’s too crowded."
At the same time, administration officials said Tuesday that they had decided not to inaugurate a big health care marketing campaign planned for December out of concern that it might drive too many people to the still-fragile HealthCare.gov.
And never mind that after Saturday, November 30, there will only be 23 days left to sign up for January coverage, as required by the ‘Law Of The Land.’ Oh, and never mind that the Obama administration is spending over $1.25 billion taxpayer dollars this year on advertising to get people to go to the Obama-Care website.
the still-fragile HealthCare.gov.
Why beg people to stay away from a web site that the American people have been avoiding like the plague?
Regardless I would vote for him again before I would ever vote for a self serving republican. What Obama has tried to do if they would let him is way better than the republicans giving my money away to the rich and killing our people in wars to feed the military industrial complex. Bush opened up my eyes, I can see them for what they are. You really believe the republicans refusal to tax the rich is to your benefit? If you do, you'll believe anything they feed you. I'm 55 years old and have been watching this game all my life and it goes a lot deeper than whether a web site works on December 1st.

I say then that's exactly what we should do!! HAHAHA a master plan, get everyone in the country to go online at a predetermined time this weekend and purposefully crash their site, brilliant!!! That's the best thing next to hacking it!!!

Mr. Confusion here, yet again.
We're talking about the technical difficulties of a government website, and you proudly announce you will always vote for the Democrat over a Republican, regardless of their beliefs or positions.
I'm sure there are connections here, would you help me find them?

Erm...... What? How can any website possibly sign you up for anything by just visiting it? If that is true, there is something seriously wrong, and illegal about it. Can you imagine if that were legal? By just visiting a porn site, it signs you up for a year subscription, then add affiliate marketing. Affiliates spam the link everywhere and get rich as hell. Something sounds off about that.edit on Wed, 27 Nov 2013 14:35:58 -0600 by TKDRL because: (no reason given)
this means my son is in limbo right now.
