. . . 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?

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.

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.

Remember when President Obama said ‘If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan?’  It turns out that’s not the case for everyone.  If you have an individually purchased health insurance plan like 14 million other Americans, you may have received notice that your plan is being cancelled.  Kaiser Health News reports that major health insurance carriers in Florida and California have sent out hundreds of thousands of cancellation notices to individuals.

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.
