. . . and in other news, pigs are protesting the cleanliness of their own pigsties.  This will make you smile a little.  From POLITICO:

The prospects of a repeal or complete collapse of the Affordable Care Act are still less likely than they were in June 2012 (awaiting the Supreme Court decision) or November 2012 (the Presidential election).  However, there is no doubt that there seems to be a growing sense (61% now disapprove of the heath care law) that maybe, just maybe, this law will not survive its full implementation.  That is incredible in and of itself when you consider that just two months ago, the ACA seemed a forgone conclusion.  Its political opponents could not even come up with a consistent opposition strategy (Delay?  Repeal? Shutdown?).

What changed?

The two money quotes from the President's press conference yesterday were:

"What we are also discovering is insurance is complicated to buy."  Gee, do you think so?  And this one,

“The Affordable Care Act is not going to be the reason why insurers have to cancel your plans.”  There we have the main impetus for this policy, to deflect blame.

There is a lot of schadenfreude going around these days over the implosion of healthcare.gov, but it is not something I can bring myself to partake.

Remember when the administration was trying to tell everyone that premiums would be lower than "expected?"   They may have given up on that tactic because the reality is now hitting home.  Check out the LA Times:

The Associated Press estimated that $684 million will be spent annually to market and promote Obamacare.  That’s quite a budget!

We’ve seen a lot of creative marketing campaigns to sell insurance.  Who doesn’t love the GEICO gecko’s accent?  Then there’s the helpful and overly perky ‘Flo,’ who has over 5 million Facebook fans from selling Progressive insurance.  My personal favorite is ‘Mayhem,’ who impersonates everything from a faulty bungee cord to a hot female jogger to show people why they need Allstate insurance.

At the Allegiance Bank Texas ACA seminar, I was asked to take out my "crystal ball" and predict what might be coming down the line for the ACA.  I answered that my track record on predicting the ACA is pretty poor.  Of course, that did not stop me from making some vague comments about what might change with the ACA.

Part 1 of my series made reference to a virtual DMV for health insurance.  I have to retract that statement and apologize to the DMV.  I have tried to log on and review quotes on a individual basis 7 times in the last two weeks.  I have not been able to make it past the password creation screen.
