    Why should this Obamadoggle be any different than the mortgage bail out plan (which people are quitting due to the paperwork and bureaucracy being a frelling nightmare)...or the Big Scare over H1N1 for which the government is disposing of $$$M of unused vaccines...or the Big Scare over the Oil Spill (which led to a moratorium and job destruction instead of a concerted, competent effort to contain the oil).

    From the linked article:
    "Two policies are available, with premiums ranging from $212 to $768 monthly, depending on age."


    Duhhh, we have a recession and high unemployment.
    consumer spending is down.

    Maybe the government needs to spend millions of dollars advertising it like the Bush administration spent on the ads to get Seniors to enroll in their new medicare pill bill? :eusa_eh:

    That must be it since no one, not even the Democrats who voted on it, could tell us what was in the bill!

    You're a genius!

    No it's not.

    It's a government mandate from ObamaCare which is administered via private insurance companies. That is hardly a Private Enterprise endeavor.
