Your article “Obama taps experts to fix online snags in care plan” [page one, Oct. 21] is interesting to me.
As a college student in my mid-20s, I am finding myself needing to sign up for my own health insurance at the same time as President Obama’s health-care reforms are taking effect.
I had previously heard about the frozen computer screens and other software glitches that other people were experiencing as they attempted to sign up for health insurance, and was concerned about using the software myself. It is good to know that President Obama and his staff are doing the best they can to fix the health-care sign-up software as more and more people are looking to get signed up for the health-care exchange.

President must learn to negotiate
President Obama is willfully prolonging the government shutdown and spitefully making middle-class Americans suffer [“Obamacare battle rife with ideological irony,” news, Oct. 15].
Just as former President Clinton negotiated with U.S. Rep. Newt Gingrich and President Reagan negotiated with U.S. Rep. Tip O’ Neill for the betterment of America, President Obama should negotiate with the Republicans.
Obamacare is not the answer to problems in the health industry. A centralized command economy is not the answer. Free markets, liberty and consumer choices are the answer.
President Obama, listen and negotiate.

The drum is beating for the U.S. to “strike” Syria. [“Obama may go it alone against Syria,” page one, Aug. 30.]
The President says he must first confer with Congress and our allies.
What obliges us to punish Syria for its use of chemical weapons? Aren’t there international precedents and regulations for handling such atrocities?

Governmental figures should be included in cuts
Should sequestration be ratified and put into place, I would assume our U.S. senators, representatives, the president and his Cabinet members can expect to have their pay, pensions and other benefits cut in the same percentage(s) applied to other proposed cutbacks [“Not much urgency to avoid automatic spending cuts,” seattletimes.com, Feb. 19].
