    and they don't mean that the ACA is itself bad, but Jesus Tap-Dancing Christ on a Cracker, the boneheads who built the site could not have fucked it up more thoroughly.

    Obama needs to get on the goddamned phone to HHS and order the appropriate HUMANS to fix this problem NOW. If you have to set up a separate office with real people writing down information on scraps of paper with fucking pencils, fine.

      Who in the Hell failed to ask the question, "What do we do when the system screws up" and -- "Gee, don't you think it's bad to tell people they'll have to go without health insurance for three months or more"?

      and in the meantime people are either dealing with collection agencies for bills they thought would be covered -- or, even worse, are putting off needed medical care because they don't have insurance coverage.

      I agree that this needs humans, NOW.
