From a devout Catholic matron, "What has this to do with the celebration of Christ's birth?"

From a young schoolteacher, "If we have do discuss it, how can we? Nobody has clarified it yet, it changes every day, sometimes two or three times day."

A middle-aged couple wanted to know how they can afford it. After finally getting through to your website, they found that their annual premium was increased by $6,000 with a $10,000 deductible.

A 60-year-old single woman wanted to know why she has to pay for birth control.

A 90-year-old gentleman ended the discussion with the bold statement, "Bah, Humbug."

Mr. Obama, I hope this satisfies your request that we spoil Christmas with this juvenile discussion.
