I don't think Obama/reid were as smart as they thought when they refused to negotiate on a delay in the ACA individual mandate because they were sure they could blame the shutdown on Repubs and reap a political advantage.
It's grossly unfair to make people decide on coverage in a shorter time than the open enrollment period for reviewing options and possible changes in Medicare plans each year which is bad enough but has NO direct penalties and is less complex.

As you well know, and many in this message board, I happen to be a registered Republican, and have in this message board criticized many times the manner that the ACA was advertised, implemented etc.
Not because, I don't believe that this is a much better program than what we have had before, but, because the implementation to me was inneficient and innefective.
I have stated here before, that I wouldn't have never made the website the only way that you could enroll in this program, That was a very naive movement by this administration. Information yes, enrollment no.
There are many ways that the ACA should have accomplish the enrollment of this very important program.
Jobs could have been created (navigators) and regular insurance agents of the various Insurance Agencies that were in the exchanges, and no opportunity for the bad mouthing, hacking, and all kinds of horrors that we have seen publish.
I will again say, my main reason of not changing parties, The Democratic party is in my view the most undisciplined and disorganized party that I know.
That doesn't mean that they don't have their good points just like any other party.
Going back to the statements that Medicare with how they deal with costs in your view, is a problem. and yet, I don't know how in this world we are going to exercise some control in the costs if they don't do that. Which brings to me that the only solution is what they do in Canada. The government sets the prices. for the Health Care industry. and that is that.
It took me a reasonable amount of time when I changed from my medigap insurance to the Humana Choice PPO to understand my plan. I didn't need days or months to understand, that changes will be made in my insurance probably every year. But what is the alternative. no insurance?
So that is a really weak excuse to actually have delayed the ACA.
Yes, I wouldn't have ever provided the opportunity to have the Republicans in any manner or form deal with the implementation of the ACA.
There are many ways, and should have been many ways that the Administration should have provided manners of enrollment.
