You buy a brand new car. On the way home you find that Reverse doesn't work. The dealer promptly blames the manufacturer and declares that you should calm down because your car is more than just the Reverse gear. Is this an adequate response?

Nice job on the subtle analogy to the ACA website, as one of the bureaucrats said "the ACA is more than just a website." As even the super liberal media is now WTF-ing, it sure is! So you should get a total refund for your car and dealer closes shop.

Time to commit Buyer's Remorse and return the vehicle! You have 3 days at a minimum!

What do you think about the title "DrMilkdud?"

Well, since my driveway is not pull-through, the response is certainly not adequate! I would want a new car, and NOW!

Haha milkdud, you're NOT DrReid eh? Suuuuuurre. I'm bet Dr. Jekyll said the same thing about Mr. Hyde, too.

Wait... "Dr." Reid, and "Mr." Milkdud? Coincidence? I think not!

You'll have to take that up with Dr Reid

Haha alright, I take it this has stuck a nerve. Who on earth actually thinks you're the same user? You two seem like night and day different people to me.

I know- it would be crazy for one person to create two accounts that are so completely different. Makes no sense at all.

but it does make me laugh. That would mean you argue with yourself on an app. And called yourself a little girl. Ha ha ha.

I think it offends Dr Reid more than it offends me- Dr Reid prefers to stay in character

Just curious, what does "definitely not DrReid" mean?

I suspect Dr. Reid is his liberal alter ego. I could be way off, though.

No, Dr Reid is definitely NOT my alter ego- that's why I said so in my tag line!

If DrReid was my alter ego, I would have said "Definitely DrReid" instead

I'm so confused now. In pretty sure I saw dr Reid claiming to be MilkDud.

That doesn't even make sense. DrReid
and I don't have the same opinions on anything. How could I be DrReid?

I would probably at that point loose my temper and well, it wouldn't be pretty. I wouldn't leave until I had a new car.

Not me personally- but something similar happened to everyone trying to access the ACA website.

Nope, and that's why states started having "lemon laws". Hopefully yours (or this hypothetical person's) does.

Who doesn't check the reverse on a car before buying it?

I think most people should be confident that when they buy a car, it goes in reverse.

I know, magnum- it would be as crazy as launching a national website before testing it to see if it works first.

lol I'm just saying. The guy should obviously fix it or refund his money but, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure they say.

So you're saying they should defund obamacare? I totally agree.

What if you have to fill out all the documents for purchase, including SSN, etc, BEFORE you are permitted to choose a car & take a test drive? Because that is precisely how PP&ACA website is set up to work.

I'm waiting for the dealer to tell me that he's going to spend $300 million on a "reverse surge". :-P
