For weeks, Obamacare opponents said Consumer Reports didn't want the public to use healthcare.gov.

Today, the right lost another talking point -- Consumer Reports endorsed the ACA website.
After advising consumers to steer clear of Healthcare.gov in October, Consumer Reports health care expert Nancy Metcalf told MSNBC’s Chuck Todd Tuesday morning that the federal health care exchange website was improved enough following the Obama administration’s frantic month of repairs that users could confidently use it.

Consumer Reports had earlier told its readers not to even bother with the website through the first month, a provisional verdict it later said had been misrepresented.

“Now we’re saying, ‘it’s time,’” Metcalf said, in particular praising the new window-shopping function, in which users can peruse health plans without registering with the site. The requirement to make an account before viewing options was considered one of the main causes for the site’s initial traffic bottleneck. “It’s terrific, I’ve tried it, it was working yesterday through the busiest times,” Metcalf said..

while CR might say it's good to go. computer experts are saying steer clear. there's no security on the site. the admin is also refusing to answer questions on why there isn't any on it.

@Gacpl...and where did you get that information from? The site is secure and people are signing up like never before. I knew things would turn around.

it just posted about a hour ago.

PN, having consumer reports endorse the Not Affordable Healthcare Act means nothing. CR also endoreses Pampers and both have a common thread; they are both full of Doo-Doo. This just another attempt by the administration to generate their own media spin. I personally think that if you were one of the millions of Americans affected by this debacle you would be singing a different tune. It is easy to be on board with a program that has little to no effect on your Family. This comes down to FACTS PN; and the FACTS clearly demonstrate that the Non-ACA is critically flawed legislation.

it's so good that harry Reid exempted him and his staff from it. that was on the liberal network cnn this morning.

did you notice Metcalf stopped short of saying the website was fixed? and she warned that consumers had no control over the back-end problems,.

HMJC-Don't assume you know me or my situation. What I do know is that for the first time ever-people that I love can now afford healthcare and friends that have gone years with no coverage because of pre-existing conditions can now access healthcare as well. I will pay more, but for a better plan. You pay for what you get and most of America was paying for junk. As far as endorsement, you would have rammed it down my throat if they were no supporting the ACA.

PN,

You have alluded in many posts that you have been fortunete and personally are not adversely impacted by this train wreck. If the ACA is such a good deal I would ask that you peruse the link below. If it is not good enough for Congressman and its Staffers can someone in the blue blazes tell me how it is good for anyone else. Smells like Doo-Doo to me.

HMJC- You can't see for looking. When life deals you a lemon-learn to make lemonade. Poor people have been taking lemons and making lemonade for years.

Also, I wasn't put on this earth to live a blessed life while others suffer..We were all placed here to help others..I'm blessed because I look beyond my needs.

Seb- My mother use to say this all time;"there is more than one way to skin a cat"...

If you don't trust the website- You have THREE alternative options. I've listed them above.

62% of US bankruptcies are due to medical bills, and 4 out of 5 of these people HAD HEALTH INSURANCE. Fight the negativity.

PN,

I have stated early on during the months of rhetoric on this topic that I do support a viable system that actually provides AFFORDABLE healthcare to those who need it. Accessability does not provide the means to pay for a plan you could not afford to begin with. Providing healthcare to those who need it funded by making others pay for services they do not need is akin to a pyrimad scheme. The N-ACA did not make healthcare any cheaper; it just provided access to a plan they could not afford previously. If there were only a couple of glitches then ya roger, keep moving forward. However refusing to acknowledge that it might be a good idea to at least suspend the program until it is more viable is selfserving at best. When the brakes systemicaly don't work on a car; it is recalled to make it safe. There is not just a couple of glitches with this pile of ill advised Doo-Doo; it is FACTUALLY flawed and additional issues surface daily. True leaders have the wearwithall to be able to acknowledge that doing what is needed as oppossed to what you want is the appropriate course of action. Good intentions are not a solution. Believe it or not PN I do applaud you supporting a just cause however; supporting it based on what it is suppossed to do as oppossed to what it really achieves acomplishes nothing. Acknowledging that in order for this to work it may take a couple of steps back before it comes to fruition. Lastly, this should not be at the expense of the majority to support the minority.
