You can bet if Highmark or UPMC were in charge of rolling out Obamacare there would have been few glitches. Big companies know that if they mess up, they lose money and their competition is right there waiting to take over.

Big government has no competition. There is no financial incentive to do well. If there are cost overruns, government just throws more money at it (see data on the initial cost of this rollout program tripling and still not being solved).

President Barack Obama is constantly trying to pass "free" programs for the benefit of all, but there is no "free lunch." Anything the government does is paid for by deductions from your paycheck. If that is not enough money, then the government will take more. Wake up, America!
