Healthcare.Gov Misconceptions and Failures

Still A Mess

We are almost 7 weeks into the rollout of Obamacare (Affordable Care Act) and I think we can agree that the execution of the implementation has been less than perfect.

We are getting emails and comments concerned about the threatened government shutdown and what that might do to the implementation of the Affordable Care Act or more affectionately known as "Obamacare".
