Salon.com, a website established apparently for Obama cheerleaders, printed maybe its harshest-ever critique of the Commander-in-Chief when it published a piece entitled:
◼ “Obamacare is a mess, and liberals need to fix it.”
◼ HuffPo said Obamacare’s broken website “imperils the largest expansion of the American safety net since the Great Society,” and called it “disastrous.”
◼ Ezra Klein, progressive Washington Post columnist and Obama coffee-dater, said that Obamacare “is a disaster” and that the administration “did a terrible job.” Ouch.
(Comedian Jimmy) Kimmel: ”They’re saying that if you are in need of healthcare, you have two choices, you can wait for them to get the site fixed, or you can enroll in medical school, graduate, and then just take care of yourself.”

◼ Only 5 in DC exchange? - Politico
Only five people have fully completed the enrollment process in the D.C. insurance exchange, according to information compiled by lawmakers from four of the insurance companies participating in the exchange.

◼ Poll: 78% of Uninsured Not Interested in ObamaCare - John Nolte/Breitbart
...One of the major selling points for using ObamaCare to disrupt our health care system (that polls showed up to 80% of Americans were satisfied with) was to insure the uninsured. But according to this poll, only a very small minority of that small minority is even interested in obtaining insurance.
Even more troubling is the realization that a month ago, that number was double; a full 44% of the uninsured said they would purchase insurance though the exchanges.
Over the course of a month, however, the reality of ObamaCare scared off half of that 44%. The high cost of premiums, the high deductibles customers have to pay regardless of any tax subsidy, and the unforgivable bungling of the rollout only discouraged those who we blew up a perfectly good health care system to help....
