Unless by "better" you mean you can now get IN the site but not actually do anything... I don't consider that better. Nor does Joe InsuranceBuyer
If someone* held a gun to my head and asked what would Americans consider "better"
A) A website on 10/1 that doesn't allow anybody to do anything.
B) A website on 10/16 where more people than 10/1 are allowed to register and navigate through the site.
I would choose A because after reading this whole thread I kind of hope he would pull the trigger.
Going back to the main topic. If the Republicans plan was to manufacture a "crisis" that would get them nothing causing them to drop in the polls as well as taking people's attention off the Obamacare website, then yes, their debt ceiling plan was brilliant.
