Things wrong with healthcare.gov. If you are having trouble logging in make sure you are using Internet Explorer. Creation of your username and password is OK with other browsers, however, IE only works to log in. The site won't allow you to search for your own doctors. It always comes up blank. It keeps coming up with a timeout even when you are active on the site. If you set a filter on the type of plans you wish to look at, and try a search for doctors/hospitals that are part of the plan, the filter is eliminated when you return to the plans page. Lastly, make sure you allow pop-ups on this site. Many of the functions (new pages) are actually pop-up pages instead of a new page. This is a problem with most browsers, as most browsers, by default, block pop-ups.
Is this job unpaid?
Nope, @markpel - as it says in the text above, we do pay our interns!

I put the date so you look back over time and see that I said it here first.
I would like to start an iReport Community around crowdfunding.
Back in the day, when I was a TV reporter, I worked as a correspondent for SHOWBIZ on CNN TV we were one of the first shows on TV to cover entertainment like sports.
IReort should be one of the first to cover the crowdfunding insudtry the same way.
Crowdfunding is miraculous.
There is a crowdfunding spirit that is like a barn-raising party.
It is full of human interest stories, drama, success, failure, striving for something new, creating jobs and much, much more.
The majority of Americans still don't know about the Jobs Act, or the Crowdfunding Act which was passed by over 400 US Congressmen.
Sure, like anything that deals with human being and money, there will always be stereotyping and controversy.
Just because something is controversial doesn't make it wrong, it makes it good TV.
I would like to see iReport give some serious thought to rules on reporting on the crowdfunding industry, campaigners, platforms and more.
Post the rules, so we can know them and abide by them.
Keeping information about crowdfunding form the public will prove, over time. to be a big mistake in holding up progress toward new jobs.
Crowdfunding is like a big new puppy, and maybe it needs some house training, but it shouldn't be ignored.

Crowdfunding is new, and there are still many misconceptions about it, because we have not seen anything exactly like it and it is rapidly becoming a part of everyday life in America.
Some people understand a lot about crowdfunding and all of the various ramifications it holds, while others are skeptical.
But I believe the enormous potential for good far outweighs the risks of stepping on skeptics toes.
People are doing amazing this with it.
Author, Marianne Williamson is runnning for US Congress with money she received from crowdfunding, so she is not beholding to lobbyist money.
Sifu Richard Baron is helping returning veterans by teaching them Kung Fu principles and raised money to do it on Kickstarter, and showcases veterans getting better on TV.
Inventor, Nami Khadem, is seeking funding for his Smart Swab invention to promote ear health.
The grandmother, who was bullied on a school bus received so much money for a vacation that she started and anti-bullying associated with the found money.
Reporting on crowdfunding activities like these and others should be an everyday occurrence, if for no other reason than it represents the "Good Stuff".
I know I am an apologetic optimist, but who should the public be kept from making their own decisions about crowdfunding?
Not all news, is bad news, just because it gets higher rating.
Let's get moving, and get the word out about crowdfunding!
Get your damn cameras off of Ferguson. We have listened to this crap for 2 - 3 months already. Get the cameras down and they will all go home. I bring the media and Obama for all of this mess. I am now watching Direct TV NOT CNN and many of my friends are doing the same. We have had enough!!!
I hope that the integrity of reporting news will someday return, as I am seeing more writers use the format as a way to indoctrinate rather than inform. Case and point, giving front page publicity to a bunch of thugs who will use any excuse to loot and harm others is irresponsible journalism.
It would one thing if the protest were conducted by people who understood what they were protesting, but interviews with many of these participants demonstrated that they are not clear on the facts and are more interested in being a part of something, even if it hurts their own community. We have all become aware of the low information voters, these are simple low information protestors., clearly not worthy of front page coverage. You pursuit of ratings at the cost of journalistic integrity is noted.
