But that New Year’s hangover hasn’t hit. Americans hoping to be covered by Jan. 1 have 12 days to sign up via a website that barely works. March 31 is the sign-up cut off for millions more. How bad will things be by then? And can the government, which lost $10.5 billion on an $80 billion bailout, really handle the $1.6 trillion health care system?

The answer is no. So on New Year's Day, just sleep in, wait for that hangover to fade away. Set your alarm for Jan. 20, 2017.
