Click on the following link. It it an error page that comes up when there's a problem on the federal Obamacare web site.

https://www.healthcare.gov/downloads/Marketplace_checklist.pdf

See the hotline phone number you're supposed to call? 1-800-318-2596

Let's break down that phone number: The 1-800, of course, are standard for a toll-free long distance call.

Here's the rest:

3 = F
1 = (blank)
8 = U
2 = C
5 = K
9 = Y
6 = O

Think they're trying to tell us something or is this just another way to show the incompetence of the implementers of this system?

In 2009 Orrin Hatch announced that "health care must be stop or eles it will be so popular that no one will ever vote Republican again."

This whole healthcare issue is far deeper than just entitlements and access. It would/will change the landscape in far reaching ways. It will cost the people - or should I say tax paying people - incredibly. It will change the entire landscape of medical research, affect the decision of many to enter the field of medicine, affect the way the pharmaceutical business is operated. It will further erode the employer sponsored benefits offered to employees, create far more govt. oversight committees and departments, and one huge area... FRAUD. People will search for ways to "beat the system" to get bigger tax credits to lessen the load.

Now I'm not advocating one way or the other. I have a wife and customers that will benefit tremendously from this - from the cost and availability side of things. But, that said, it would also potentially affect or move the decisions on course of care one receives from their physician to some nameless and faceless person or committee.

This is obviously a move that far smarter people than me are struggling-with. I've said that something needed to be done. Our nation's leaders are trying.
That's a good thing. The question is if we've really examined if the current plan is the way to go, or is it just a start toward providing for our own as we can and should?

Just like I don't know if the Seahawks will cover their spread Sunday, I don't know the answers to all the questions about healthcare.

My carpal tunnel is acting up now, so I'll step back and let you guys run with what I've started... I wonder if that'll be covered by Obamacare, or will it be Work Comp since it happened while I was supposed to be working?

My point (which you continue to seem to miss) is the quality of the "service" so far given the sad state of the sign-up systems implementation (I'm a retired IT architecture manager so I know something about country-wide network application implementation efforts). The government spent billions of our dollars for some obviously incompetent system developers. That's a strong suggestion to me that the other parts of the healthcare insurance system will hardly provide quality of service or lower cost.

Well said, Kurt. Except for that part I chose to embolden. Smart people and Washington DC are incompatible.

But the CBO has said rates will be cheaper there are even reports of lower rates than even the CBO thought.  So you don't think there is "Gaming of the System" before.  Yea fraud will be an issue but Obama has found fraud and done something about it.  I think your fears are based in lies not facts or the truth.  So you do know us tax payers pay for the uninsured now!
That's at the heart of the plan to change the way we care for people. Keep people well not just treat them when their sick. The "Sea Change" is to change the American medical system. Look at Europe and their medical system not their plan but, the way they treat people.

Let's suppose a young guy who's buying his own insurance currently pays $150/month. The CBO may well have incorrectly estimated his new cost under Obamacare will be $300/month (doubling his cost). Now the CBO is changing their expectation of his cost to $200/month based on more current and accurate figures. You fall into the trap of seeing his cost as being $100 less when, in fact, his real cost has gone UP 33%. What a deal! The Government CBO lowers its estimated cost to the consumer and you, a true liberal sucker, take the bait hook, line and sinker.

Not true, Mr. CravnRavn... I've had companies pay for many a CT surgery. One of the craziest... had a massage therapist claim carpal tunnel after - wait for it.... 3 weeks on the job! Did the right hand. Collected the indemnity for 6-8 weeks, then said "you know, I think my left hand may be affected, too." Another surgery and then 3 mos of pay. A week after returning, she quit.

And people like that, should be sent to jail..

The boys at UPS had to get lawyers, now Im going back a few years, maybe year 2000, when UPS went paperless and came out with these computer boards, your thumbs were the main keys, they tried to train you to walk and record the stop as you were walking with the thumbs..

There are certain things now that I do that shoot pain from my right thumb into my wrist, the main culprit is popping a cold brew by my thumb..drinkbeer
