CNN goes 0-for-100 trying to find successful Obamacare enrollee

By Cheryl K. Chumley

The Washington Times

Thursday, October 3, 2013

CNN asked 100 people in South Carolina to tell how easy it was to enroll in Obamacare exchanges. And from all 100 sources, CNN received the same reply: We couldn't do it.

Not one of Dr. Sanjay Gupta's 100 interview sources was able to enroll online because the websites kept crashing, The Blaze reported.

Dr. Gupta, moreover, found that in the entire state of Kentucky, only 2,900 were able to access the online exchanges and successfully enroll.

The news comes on the tail of President Obama's announcement this week that America can expect enrollment "glitches" to last for months. Obamacare supporters, meanwhile, are spinning the glitches as evidence of the health reform's popularity among the people — that the online crashes and system malfunctions are actually due to unexpected demand.

But many around the nation aren't buying that logic.

"It was worse today than it was yesterday," said Denise Rathman of Des Moines, Iowa, after trying for the second day in a row — unsuccessfully — to enroll online, The Blaze reported.

In California, fewer than 1 percent of visitors to the state-run health care exchange site actually signed up for the program. And in Minnesota, a pastor and father of two young children said he had tried at least 10 times to enroll at the state's online exchange, but could not.

Once Obamacare is funded the websites will start working. For now, they don't want people finding out what it costs. If the truth gets out people might back Cruz in not funding it.

I spent time on the WA state website. 6 attempts at just getting a rate, completely unsuccessful. Even worse than crashing, when rates were displayed they were for parameters completely different than what I had entered. I entered data for a family of 5 with two 45 year old adults and three children. The website displayed 3 different errant results for a 20 year old male, a 53 year old male, and a 55 and 59 year old couple.

They can’t even handle the procedures for getting people to sign up for it?
Barely out of the gate & Obamacare has already screwed the pooch.

For all we know, freelance hackers and technomancers may be crashing these sites on purpose. Just wondering.

Yes, because of all the websites ever launched, hackers would suddenly decide to hack this one.

Barely out of the gate - about three years after the bill was signed into law (if I recall correctly). This isn’t rocket surgery, there’s no reason that the systems couldn’t have been ready to go on October 1st. (other than it being a government project, of course)

They were wiling to risk not being ready because this is a systematic takedown of revenue from the American people.

This is why you will not know what the costs are until you’ve already signed up and given your information...they are creating an “Uninsured data base” For obvious reasons.

If people knew the costs they’d never sign into this...most never ask what the co-pays are or the deductible.....these are low end voters and kids signing up who never investigate anything they believe is “free”.

All Obama wants is the young and the low-enders (voters).....note all the photos of people signing in are single mothers...illegals and foreigners...college kids or those just out.....and “other” minorities.

Just try to Google "Complete History of the Affordable Healthcare Act", both political and procedural.

Everything has been scrubbed from the Web, EXCEPT WHITE HOUSE AND SOROS-FUNDED PROPAGANDA SOURCES.

Coincidence?

An investigation into who got the contract(s) to develop the website will likely find one or more Obama/Dem cronies who haven’t a clue as to software development.

Worth repeating...

This charade is just a corollary to the "We have to pass the legislation so you can find out what's in it," imbecility.

It ain’t that hard, you know. Imagine a tank full of goldfish. One of them has a red spot on his head. Reach in there and grab him. That’s how technomancers play this game. That’s the best way I can explain it.

Would be nice. But after you served your purpose, they’d probably shoot you in the head and bury you in the sub-basement of the Presidio.
I’m gonna miss Tom Clancey. If you read his novels, you will see that he had the inside scoop. He got it.
