1. This Was Upsetting To Say The Least......

You know they could have made fun of the Repugs and this hearing that they are holding. Or how about the $26 billion that they cost us or perhaps coming close to bringing down the global economy with their debt ceiling stand.

It seems like MSM has fallen into the trap set by the Repugs and they have successfully got the MSM to forget all of that and shift the focus to this website and ACA.

The website will be fixed and it will work for the American People.

The Repugs are unfixable. They don't work for the American People any more.

It's time that the MSM understands that and does their job to make the Repugs go away.

You know I don't think that the people that bring us SNL realize how much damage they might be doing to ACA with this skit. Or maybe they do!!!!!!!

3. You've gotta be kidding me. You're upset that a comedy show made fun of a website

rollout? That IS what comedy shows do, you know. They poke fun, they laugh at the things that Americans are talking about.

Right now Americans ARE talking about the website problems. Do you think SNL has a civic duty to NOT make jokes about it, just because it will eventually benefit people?

2. They're just finding funny. We can't rely on comedians to frame our objectives. They only comment

what they think Americans will find funny.
