    Doesn't it make sense that when it comes to their health, and to getting affordable insurance, and to savings thousands of dollars a year, that it wouldn't be worth just a little effort for lots of people to figure it out?

    Survival of the fittest, man. It only took me an hour online to sign up (lucky to live in California) but I promise you, I would not have given up no matter how many computer hours it took.

    It's not like walking away from a pizza that's just a little too inconvenient to order online, FFS.

      P.S. Isn't "survival of the fittest" a banned phrase on DKos?
      Empathy and all.

        and stand in line for all sorts of things.  Witness Black Friday...3am lines for Best Buy.  Just to save a few bucks.  

        I betcha they'd do that for health insurance too if it meant savings like what we are witnessing daily.  

        Human nature, I guess.  

        We are all in this together.
