MSNBC's Chuck Todd claimed Monday the Obamacare website was a complete failure.

"The candidate and campaign that brought us the most technologically advanced campaign in history in touching millions of people — blew it this badly on this their biggest and most important government outreach? Todd said. "It's unbelievable."

Todd played a video of a Saturday Night Live skit mocking the website failures, branding it as one of the "Losers" of the week.

"You can't campaign on the fact that millions don't have health care, and then be surprised that millions don't have health care," a character in the SNL skit joked.

I wonder if "journOlists" like Todd have read the bill and know some of the following:

A few highlights:

Page 50/section 152: The bill will provide insurance to all non-U.S. residents, even if they are here illegally.

Page 58 and 59: The government will have real-time access to an individual's bank account and will have the authority to make electronic fund transfers from those accounts.

Page 65/section 164: The plan will be subsidized (by the government) for all union members, union retirees and for community organizations (such as the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now - ACORN).

Page 203/line 14-15: The tax imposed under this section will not be treated as a tax. (How could anybody in their right mind come up with that?)

Page 241 and 253: Doctors will all be paid the same regardless of specialty, and the government will set all doctors' fees.

Page 272. section 1145: Cancer hospital will ration care according to the patient's age. AGE 76, YOU WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE FOR ANY CANCER TREATMENTS.

Page 317 and 321: The government will impose a prohibition on hospital expansion; however, communities may petition for an exception.

Page 425, line 4-12: The government mandates advance-care planning consultations. Those on Social Security will be required to attend an "end-of-life planning" seminar every five years. (Death counseling..)

Page 429, line 13-25: The government will specify which doctors can write an end-of-life order.

Page 167: Any individual who doesn’t have acceptable health care (according to the government) will be taxed 2.5% of income.

I love pg. 268

Page 268: Government regulates rental and purchase of power-driven wheelchairs.

Page 280: Hospitals will be penalized for what the government deems preventable re-admissions.

Page 489: Government will cover marriage and family therapy. Government intervenes in your marriage.
