On October 1, 2013, America was forced to participate in the purchase of a service that the majority of Americans do not want. If uninsured Americans don’t have insurance and don’t buy insurance under the Affordable Care Act (also known as Obamacare), they will be penalized because, as the Supreme court determined, Obamacare is a tax and that tax will be a penalty imposed on Americans that choose to not buy the service. At 2PM on October 20, 2013, I attempted to go to the exchange page for my state’s Health Insurance Exchange. This is what I was greeted with:
I am a hunter. This continued lack of availability of the ability to sign up for Obamacare is akin to requiring me to buy a hunting license online before hunting but then not having a working website to buy that license. That is just flat-out ridiculous!
