More than a week after the launch of the new federally run health-insurance marketplaces, Mary Webster joked yesterday that her enrollment headaches seem to be turning into a chronic condition."
Health insurers in Ohio told The Dispatch they have had Ohioans successfully enroll in their marketplace plans.
CareSource said it has had enrollees from six regions in Ohio, with double-digit enrollment to date.
Enrollment appears to be slow, said Ed Byers, a spokesman for Medical Mutual of Ohio.

where in the hell did they spend $680 million dollars on this?
Before you sign up, you have to read the manual - all six thousand pages.
The fill out a ten-page form in triplcate.
And then, maybe.
Very curious that states like Washington, New York and California have reported tens of thousands of enrollees in their exchanges and stragglers like Ohio or Wisconsin virtually none. Different metrics or different standards for counting an application ?

The Canadian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood thanks us for our generous donation, and they apologize for any inconvenience. Infidel dog.
The MSM is, IMHO, intentionally manipulating the reporting on the number of people actually signing up for Obamacare.
Here is what you need to be aware of:
Before you ENROLL in Obamacare you have REGISTER and be qualified. The figures you are quoting are for the number of people in those states that have REGISTERED. For New York and California we have no figures for ENROLLMENTS.
For Kentucky we have figures for both ENROLLMENTS and for REGISTRATIONS:
Kentucky REGISTRATIONS - 7000
Kentucky ENROLLMENTS - 171
Although we don't know for sure if this is typical I think it is. It shows that only a small fraction of people registering for Obamacare are willing at this point to signup and start making payments on their policy. That percentage will probably increase with time. It wont' get to 100%. What it will get to is anybody's guess. I certainly don't know.
“While you’re waiting to speak to the next available, highly knowledgeable and courteous ‘navigators’, could we interest you in purchasing some carbon credits?”
If they can’t even manage the sign up, how will they manage our healthcare?
It's in 0bama's best interest to allow 0bamacare to remain in effect. Otherwise, the need for single payer system gets delayed if 0bamacare itself gets delayed. This is why 0bama refuses to budge. He WANTS this to fester, knowing the media has got his back.
Here in small Connecticut, United HealthCare, a huge Medicare provider, announced yesterday they *dropped* 2,500 doctors from their service. That’s a lot of docs; many practices are not accepting new patients, or Medicare patients.

The answer is blue state vs. red state, which is related to the IQ of the residents. Ohio (in another post) reported "enrollments in the double digits"; it's a red state. California residents have IQ's in the double digits; it's a blue state.
California, Connecticut, Maryland, Minnesota, New York, Utah, Vermont, Washington and some others are also states building their own Marketplace exchanges. So not to discount ideology (or Medicaid) but there are definitely technical issues involved as well.
