Like all laws, you're going to have some warts that you will have to remove.
The problem is, they didn't count on the entire Republican Party turning its back on a law they had previously endorsed, demonizing it to the point of attempting to pathologically repeal it 40 separate times. Any Republican action on the law outside of complete and total repeal is considered to be supporting Obamacare. Period.
That's psychotic, but that's where we are. And it means Congress can't make any repairs to Obamacare until (a.) the Republican fever breaks, or (b.) Democrats win total control of Congress again.
