Skip to comments.Delaware Obamacare Exchange Gets First Enrollee, State Health Officials Celebrate
Posted on 10/16/2013 2:24:03 PM PDT by Red in Blue PA
According to a Washington Post report Wednesday morning, 59-year-old Janice Baker officially became the first confirmed enrollee in the Delaware Obamacare exchange that opened, as most other exchanges did, on October 1.
Having tried to sign up online and via telephone starting on October 1, and continuing her efforts over the course of more than two weeks, Baker was repeatedly frustrated by error messages online and hours of waiting on the phone. She finally succeeded after deleting all temporary data, browsing history, and cookies on her computer.
According to the report, Delaware Health and Social Service officials were so happy to sign up their first enrollee that they celebrated.

The left truly are mentally ill!
Yeah. They already got all that. It was the trying to re-copy it all that messed up the program. A copy of her hard drive now resides with the NSA, just in case she ever votes for a non-Democrat.
This person is mentally ill... spending 2 weeks to register? I’d have s**tcanned the whole thing long before then as unworkable, as would any normal person.
One down, 320 million to go....................
Hooray for Janice. I’d love to see what her co-pays, deductibles, and monthly premiums are. How much of that are other people paying for her?
HEY !!! Everybody celebrate !!!
Delaware has their very own token enrollee...
Hopefully it’s a minority so they can celebrate diversity the next day.
This female has put em on the map
on is all it takes..
no others need apply..
The shame has gone away...
Reformatting her hard drive, reinstalling her operating system, ...
“Though she declined to go into detail about the plan she chose, Baker said she’ll now be paying $700 per month for her health insurance.”
Dumb question...but a simple one:
Who pays the subsidy?
The rat websites are full of ‘success stories’...I just read one where a fellow and his wife got a ‘Gold’ plan, which would normally be $750/month for $450/month, after subsidy.
They are all cheering, of course, because Uncle Sugar is helping to pay for part of it. But has anybody explained exactly where this subsidy comes from?
Does it come from the general fund? Are the medical device tax and tanning tax supposed to cover this? Is money being transferred out of Medicaid?
Its a simple question, with a seemingly simple answer - we pay for it. But how, and where in the budget is all this fairy dust subsidy being accounted for?
What to do? What to do?
In two weeks she’ll discover it was just a phishing scam.
I live in New Castle County, Delaware. Today’s edition of the local newspaper, “The News Journal” has a front page story on this woman (above the fold.) She repeatedly failed to get through on the computer, then tried signing up over the phone. She spent hours waiting on hold on the phone, only to be told by two different representatives that they couldn’t help her because their computers had locked up. The tone of the story, however, makes it sound as thoufgh this is a brilliant success!
All Prols are ordered to joyously celebrate this great success of National Socialism!!!
Failure to celebrate will be monitored by the NAS, and you know what that means.
They are like salmon, mindlessly swimming upstream.
no gubmint program is ever a failure.
it just ‘underperforms’ due to being ‘underfunded’.
... So ... did the President declare today a new National holiday?
"From Obama's stash" (Obamavoter on TV in '09)
An actual enrollee in Obamacare??
Well my wallet just got lighter!
with any luck, by the end of the month they’ll have TWO!
Theoretically, the young -- who are being over-charged. And those who don't choose to be insured -- and pay the penalty.
In actual fact, since the young won't choose to be insured -- because they are being over-charged -- and will choose the cheaper penalty, it will be the taxpayers who end up paying the subsidy.
The GAO now estimates the total net cost of Obamacare to the taxpayers at 2.6 trillion over ten years (vs 0.9 trillion when the bill was passed). But it will end up being over 5 trillion by the time it's all said and done.
If this was all about insuring the uninsured, why, oh why, didn't we just buy them all a policy?
Not too shabby. Only $10,000 per year, and that's PRE-deductible, which if stories in the liberal media are true, are only about another 10-20K/yr.
Nice job democrats.
You OWN this.
I'm going around on every message board telling people to thank the democrats for everything.
Can't EVER blame a republican again. Sorry.
The first delawarian to be screwed by obamacare was celebrated today.
“HA, WE GOT ONE! She’s gonna regret it later! Re-set the trap!!!”
I could actually picture them saying that.
Someone needs to hack the site so when they hit the submit button, admiral akbar clip plays “It’s a Trap!”
The only ‘cookies’ that I know how to deal with on my computer are the ones I baked myself. I certainly cannot do such work on my computer.
Your great grand kids...
She supposedly runs a dog kennel..based on her gushing comments, I’d suspect an SEIU/OFA/MoveOn etc connection.
Wow, I remember when this thing was scored to break even in the first ten years...shifting medicare ‘savings’ allegedly through stopping fraud and abuse.
Back then I asked...what about year 11.
Now its openly admitted to be a multi-trillion dollar loss?
Using governmentspeak, that means it will soon be an annual $trillion, give or take.
Now if we add that to Michigan and Alaska’s total we still have 1 enrollee
All that free stuff is what makes it so great!
Now she can enter the cougar scene with no worries about getting pregnant since she gets her free birth control. Not that many 59 year old women are going to need birth control, but it's her gift from Sandra Fluke and the DNC for being an Obama supporter.
“No....seriously.....the lunch is free. We do have a $10 cover charge, though.”
“What’s the cover charge for?”
“Entertainment? I don’t see any band.”
“No, the entertainment is for me. I get really entertained seeing dumbs**ts like you who think there is such a thing as a free lunch.”
Funny how 20 year olds are now going to pay for granny's "free" mammograms and colonoscopies.
But that $9/month birth control at Walmart was just too "onerous" to bear, huh?
Hahahahaha....ENJOY, you Millennial pukes who put Obama in office.
Enjoy your 29 hour per week McJob.
Enjoy trying to find a doctor who speaks English when you need medical care.
Enjoy trying to make it in the cold hard world when you try to move up and have a career.
Touch that nice 40K per year juicy "salary". Now you get to be taxed out the wazoo because you have committed the crime of being young and healthy.
Sleep soundly, my pretties. It's only going to get WORSE.
Oh, so much worse, but that's not important, right?
Remember hopey changey, and proving you're not a racist by voting for some kinda sorta maybe black-type guy?
>> Id suspect an SEIU/OFA/MoveOn etc connection.
I agree. I still love to see the particulars on these ObamaCare “success” stories. I make more than 400% of the poverty rate and I could not afford any of these plans without a major lifestyle change.
And, when that day comes, my first lifestyle change is to quit my job. I’m not working in the Obamunist economy unless my job gets turned into a “no-show” type of job where they’re just happy to get any productivity out of me.
Me too. My wife and I were going to rent a car last month, but got a bunch of runaround despite renting a car there only three weeks before.
After asking for still more proof I live where I live, despite many ID’s and same proof we brought last time, it was suggested I go back to my house to fetch more.
I told my wife that our car would work just fine, and we took it instead and had $250 more to spend on vacation. I can only tolerate limited stupidity.
