It's a batting average that won't land the federal marketplace for Obamacare into the Healthcare Hall of Fame.
As few as 1 in 100 applications on the federal exchange contains enough information to enroll the applicant in a plan, several insurance industry sources told CNBC on Friday. Some of the problems involve how the exchange's software collects and verifies an applicant's data.
"It is extraordinary that these systems weren't ready," said Sumit Nijhawan, CEO of Infogix, which handles data integrity issues for major insurers including WellPoint and Cigna, as well as multiple Blue Cross Blue Shield affiliates....

I'll be nice, and not give you an earful concerning your obliviousness and math problems.
Jim, you are pretty smart guy but you swallow hook line and sinker liberal economic arguments that don't work in the real world, just on paper. In case you didn't know, there already is an alternative minimum tax that is supposed to be what you are advocating and more and more is hitting the middle class. Second, the problem is NOT revenue it is spending. Revenues are higher under Obama and the debt continues to rise. Unless you CURB SPENDING the debt will continue to rise. Also, just like everybody else when the price of an item goes up (in this case tax bill to the government) people buy LESS of the item, and thus a higher tax rate would generate LESS revenue than a lower one. This has been proved in the 1920's, 60's,80's, 2000's. Lowering the tax rate (particularly the capital gains rate) ALWAYS brings in more money to the government and spurs economic growth. But as previously stated the issue is not one of income but outgo. If politicians REALLY cared about the deficit they would STOP baseline budgeting, cut departments and programs, deregulate energy and CUT spending on entitlements. That is NOT going to happen in our current political system, neither party is committed to that.

the country is at an impasse. the debt is unpayable and those who took out the trillions have had the power to do this since 1913... the makers of the debt give the debt to the people... and that's where we are at. a dependent nation that cannot pay its debt. as far as I can see, anything else is diversions, amphitheater shows.
