...until Obama is OUT OF OFFICE


empty date, user name unallocated/assigned (I'm not famous but you could've at least put my name in it), health services attained by The Great Void, thanks me for making changes on my first submission; it's like a pseudo-intellectual liberal joke about the private-sector marketplace they think isn't real, for $600+ million.

How may I help you?

[4:33:34 pm]: Matthew
I'm at the "View Eligibility Result" page, i viewed the PDF and it doesn't say if I qualify, or what to do next.

Big blank space, overbuffered text

[4:34:40 pm]: Melissa
I apologize for the inconvenience.

[4:34:44 pm]: Melissa
Is the page blank?

[4:35:50 pm]: Matthew
No, but several sections are. The "What should I do next?" section is blank. Please explain.

[4:36:17 pm]: Melissa
Sometimes the pop-up blocking software that is installed on your computer can cause you difficulty in viewing certain information on the Internet. Turning off your pop-up blocker may allow you to see the information you are having trouble accessing.

[4:36:58 pm]: Matthew
That's nice, the pdf is missing sections. Can you tell me what the next step for me to acquire the insurance is?

[4:37:46 pm]: Melissa
Unfortunately, I am unable to answer your question. However, you can reach us toll free at 1-800-318-2596.

[4:38:14 pm]: Matthew
So i just game [sic, oops] my personal information and time for nothing?

[4:38:56 pm]: Matthew
How about this.

[4:39:05 pm]: Melissa
No, of course not. All your information will be saved so next time you log in, you will not have to input it again.

[4:39:18 pm]: Matthew
What would be the typical next step for someone who is trying to get insurance via the site?

Please contact the following numbers that are not following.
[4:40:47 pm]: Melissa
After you submitted your application, we will send you your results via mail.

[4:42:09 pm]: Matthew
Should the same result occur, I'll go to the 'welfare' office and apply for the insurance that i can't afford and didn't want and couldn't get on a $635 million website for the tech support that told me a popup blocker blanked a pdf space.

[4:43:27 pm]: Melissa
I apologize for the inconvenience.

[4:43:32 pm]: Melissa
Do you have any other questions that I can help you with?

[4:45:32 pm]: Matthew
The form says I can access my HIP information via this website, how do I do that?

[4:47:06 pm]: Melissa
Do you mean the health insurance plans?

[4:49:03 pm]: Matthew

[4:49:55 pm]: Matthew
the pdf says to access "HealthCare.gov/marketplace" but that page doesn't exist.


[4:50:16 pm]: Matthew
$635 million dollars, and the page doesn't exist.

the (at the time) dead link, and; the repeating glitch referring me to another agency?, wtf
[4:50:41 pm]: Melissa
We have a lot of visitors trying to use our website. This is causing some glitches for some people trying to create accounts or log in. There is no estimated resolution time. We thank you for your patience and ask you to try again. Meanwhile, I can send you a link that you may use to get estimated pricing.

[4:50:51 pm]: Melissa
Let me send you the link.

[4:51:01 pm]: Melissa

[4:51:50 pm]: Melissa
Do you have any other questions that I can help you with?

[4:53:23 pm]: Matthew
good think [sic, oops] I wasn't trying to do those things. I am not searching for premiums, I have no income, and I only am applying because it is now the law. Where, perhaps, would that page be? 

[4:56:11 pm]: Melissa
You may find a lot of useful information on healthcare.gov about exemptions being that you stated you currently have no income.

[4:56:43 pm]: Matthew
and yet I didn't and am asking tech support.

[4:57:06 pm]: Melissa
You may qualify for an exemption if you are not required to file a tax return because your income is too low, or you can't afford coverage because the minimum amount you must pay for the premiums is more than a specified percentage of your household income.

It should be called --> AffluentHealthINSURANCECustomersOnly.COM ; people aren't signing up b/c it's not what the 30million new "welfare" dole patients, are to use

[4:57:41 pm]: Matthew
you're giving me the runaround, I'm just going to find a local federal office and try there.

You have 10 days to request the thing you thought the $600 million (taxpayer funded) website was supposed to do, or.... big ass blank space.

[4:58:11 pm]: Matthew
This website looks like a way for gov't to squirm into the Health Insurance market, if I wanted cheap insurance I'd use State Farm, or something, in my humble opinion. I'm sorry, I thought this website was for those who could not afford insurance, apparently for millions of dollars no one can afford to tell me that.

[4:59:10 pm]: Melissa
Thank you for your patience. I am still researching that information.
[5:00:41 pm]: Melissa
Thank you for your patience. I am still researching that information.
[5:04:01 pm]: Melissa
Do you have any other questions that I can help you with?
[5:05:12 pm]: Matthew
for your help - I had to signin to the link you sent, when i did it took me to my "profile" or "account info" or something, and it says the status of my application is "in progress" so I assume some annoying telemarketer will be harassing me soon to buy a 'very special plan' or some commercial BS, you were more help then I leadon, the PDF still had/has blank sections, overlapping text, redundant typo/text, and after "Dear:" it doesn't have my name, thank you for YOUR patience. I have to blog this rigamarole now.

The last text overlay, I'm calling the "Heal Glitch" because as you can see, the word "Heal" just erroneously is stamped on the line, kind of cerebral/meta. it's the last glitch in the PDF, the remaining five (of nine total) pages are errorless and read like a brochure, with disclaimers, then the cost analysis that you can hear anytime being screamed by any liberal screaming from the caves of mainstream-media, including medicaid (dole) information (un)liability disclaimers, how to use the dole in fifteen (15) other languages. "Heal," as if to say, 'try to get better'.

[5:05:54 pm]: Melissa
I apologize for the inconvenience.
[5:06:01 pm]: Melissa
Do you have any other questions that I can help you with?
[5:07:56 pm]: Melissa

/§/ Do you have to keep ending sentences with 'with'?
Try, "Do you have any other questions that I can help you?"

So it may be nice for the people's republic of socialism to be able to vote on how coverage goes, i remember they/we wanted exemption/protection from preexisting conditions excluding people from coverage, but that was removed by potus, there was an 'employer mandate' that would've included those mega corporations that potus derides so much, but that was removed by potus. So, today I've learned that if I qualify for the exemption to the tax I didn't want, I can't learn them on the one $600M site rumored to do so. Also, this in no way makes healthcare cheaper, I saw the rates, better to go to the private sector, tho neither option adds doctors or guarantees service. Let's not forget, doctors in the healthcare exchange (HEX) will get federal rebates for quicker service in a cave than the doctor who takes time to heal the patient. It's a rewards program, the rewards of hell, but a program.

GDP to population ratio, very low, government solutions to IQ scores, even lower. Yes, some people are recorded as utilizing Unemployment Benefits, quit forgetting to add the people on EBT, who receive said funds because they're not working also. The workers are doing more for less, while the political class and the obedient classless are doing less for more.

Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there, while govt is looking into the problem indefinitely for way too much money, and if you don't like it pay a fine. Cuba does it this way, free healthcare, but there aren't enough doctors and are shortages of medicine. This madness is called serfdom in the dictionary, where the fuck is the media?

Big Quote Time. /§/

"It's amazing to me how many people think that voting to have the government give poor people money is compassion. Helping poor and suffering people yourself is compassion. Voting for our government to use guns to give money to help poor and suffering people is immoral self-righteous bullying laziness. People need to be fed, medicated, educated, clothed, and sheltered. If we're compassionate, we'll help them, but you get no moral credit for forcing other people to do what you think is right. There is great joy in helping people, but no joy in doing it at gunpoint.

"People try to argue that government isn't really force. You believe that? Try not paying your taxes. (This is only a thought experiment -- suggesting on CNN.com that someone not pay his or her taxes is probably a federal offense, and I'm a nut, but I'm not crazy.). When they come to get you for not paying your taxes, try not going to court. Guns will be drawn. Government is force -- literally, not figuratively.

"I don't believe the majority always knows what's best for everyone. The fact that the majority thinks they have a way to get something good does not give them the right to use force on the minority that don't want to pay for it. If you have to use a gun, I don't believe you really know jack. Democracy without respect for individual rights sucks. It's just ganging up against the weird kid, and I'm always the weird kid." ~ Penn Jillette

/§/ Speaking of govt force, this week DC riot police clashed with amputee octogenarian Vietnam War vets. These hippies hate the military so much they became the jackbooted thugs they claim to hate, just to prove the tragically and sadly ironic point, and so the circle continues. /§/

I need to close this with info from today, you can't make this shit up, I've tried, read the caption.

There's a debate in DC, o'notreagan wants to extend, in ultimatum, the debt looming over the future, others and I for one don't, the twitter pic today of Potus D'Totus says "END THIS NOW" - it's a picture of a famous DC building, are we supposed to end government buildings when the leftist typically and deeply despises anti-collectivism?  - for those of you who haven't noticed yet, it is a picture of the fucking Library of Congress. Are we supposed to end the dangers of libraries or is the left pitifully afraid of people who can read? I fear this is another closely-dystopian Fahrenheit 451 moment.
