• My opinion is the same, I still think it is much needed, I only wish they had taken more care in rolling it out.

• Worse. Ignoring for the moment that monumental health care system changes should NOT have been a priority during the president’s first term and that the economic recovery should have,  meaningful reform should have succeeded at the “public option” proposal stage. However, both sides of the aisle failed to pass this most practical and feasible proposal. Now we’re stuck!

• My opinion has not changed. Instead what has happened as of late confirms my belief that health care, especially the way Obamacare was written, is TOO big for government to handle. I believe in competition and free markets with personal choice. n Worse and I didn’t think that was possible.

• Better. It survived the federal government shut down. I heard on the news that computer sign up difficulties have been resolved.

• Better. Not by much though. I am still on the fence. I like the idea that health care isn’t just for the well-off, but I hate the idea that some folks don’t take care of themselves, and take advantage of the system, and I am paying for that.

• WORSE. It seems there is a lot of loopholes that are coming out. And no one said that the prices would sky rocket to be insured. And to put a cherry on top, if you don’t get health insurance you will be fined per person in your household! n Worse. If the execution of the rollout plan is anything like what’s ahead, look out America.  

• Worse. For millions of Americans who have had their existing policies cancelled, it has become the Not So Affordable Health Care Act.
