The Obamacare rollout is a disaster of mythic proportions. When Democratic Senator Max Baucus warned that the program looked like a train wreck waiting to happen, many in the media dismissed the prediction with a waive of a hand. Given that the warning was coming from a DEMOCRATIC senator who headed the Senate Finance Committee of all committees didn’t give that many people pause. Like the passage of Obamacare the rollout would be forced through and everything would work itself out.
Well it didn’t.
We are nearing a point where some Dems may actually start calling for repeal. Watch for this if things can’t get squared away by the “end of November” which is the new self imposed deadline.

Americans who face higher insurance costs under President Obama’s health-care law are angrily complaining about “sticker shock,” threatening to become a new political force opposing the law even as the White House struggles to convince other consumers that they will benefit from it.
The growing backlash involves people whose plans are being discontinued because the policies don’t meet the law’s more-stringent standards. They’re finding that many alternative policies come with higher premiums and deductibles.
