Last time I saw about 1% who had tired, signed up - aprox 50K. Some states had none sign up.
Will those who "bought" the lie believe anything Obama/Reid/Pelosi pitch now? Stories around the net give a picture of shocked and angry customers.
High unemployment has swelled unemployment ranks, helped along by government actions to keep the economy struggling (no pipeline, EPA rules closing down businesses and jobs, Obamacare dictates moving people to part-time or being laid off, and business in limbo for years and not hiring).
A $500,000,000 "glitch" (the costs of Obamacare go FAR beyond the cost of their unworkable government web-site). People are beginning to believe they've been stymied on purpose - that the site was designed to be "glitchy" keeping high numbers of people in the dark about the increase in their premiums, out of pocket coss (and what it buys) and for the truly out-of-touch, that it isn't free.
There will be NO savings - there will be a HUGE increase in costs to the middle class - with fewer choices (and in the coming years inferior and rationed services - doled out by some bureaucrat in charge of your family's life and death decisions).
How long will "glitches" pass muster with the compliant Obama media?
It has been shown it's not what it was billed - "cheap, free, accessible."
It's almost certain that you will not keep your coverage and your doctor. And it's likely that you will not see a doctor at all by rather a physician's assistant.
Doctors are leaving in droves and their numbers are not being replaced, as students are not flocking into medicine.
Again, Obamanoid groups have been funneled taxpayer money (unions, Acorn, etc), this time to tout "exchanges" and navigate people into this system.
Now word of security concerns because personal Obamacare online accounts are sitting ducks for privacy thieves (government and non-government).
Obamacare controls a SIXTH of the U.S. economy - the largest bureaucracy in the world, and is enforced by the IRS.
What could possibly go wrong?
They need one million a month just from people who don’t use it.
This is the folly of all the Congresspeople who voted for it and did not stop it. What even most of them don’t seem to grasp is that Obama doesn’t care a thing about health care or a thing about jobs. He cares about draining the U.S. Treasury and getting a stranglehold over the lives of all Americans. It’s the Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals strategy and methodology being carried out in front of our eyes and facilitated by an irresponsible Congress.
11 weeks out from Jan 1, and nobody knows WTF is going on!
The architecture of the system is literally so flawed that there is no way to even verify the records of the exchanges, the insurers and the enrollees have the same information on file. The IRS cannot and I think will not start fining Americans for not having insurance if that would mean being forced to buy an obviously defective product.
I'll bet the farm they are going through every bit of information they have collected
and calling people in desperation of meeting that goal. Maybe even threatening them by
saying It's the law and you will be fined or jailed. Anything is possible with this Jerk.
Oct 31st? What year?
I’m confused. I thought the administration said they didn’t know how many people are signing up. So are they lying about not knowing or are they lying about knowing the number of enrollments are gonna be short at the end of the month? Can’t have it both ways....oh wait, they’re democrats, now I’m no longer confused /sarc
What saddens me the most, is that only a third of the country is paying attention, and I can't imagine that more than a third will ever get fighting mad about this.
they’ll spend a trillion to make this happen.
The entire uninsured line is a lie. There are approximately 15 million uninsured and they wanted to be uninsured.
Scott Atlas breaks it down:
Obama and the Democrats started out with the lie that 50 million people are uninsured, but if you look at the raw data (Census Bureau, etc.) you it’s not really 50 million people.
Of the 50 million about 10-15 million people are not U.S. citizens. That leaves 35-40 million people “uninsured”.
Next, take a look at the people who answered the U.S. Census Bureau survey and said they didn’t have health insurance, and about another 10 million or so that said they didn’t have insurance were using insurance. The Census Bureau went and looked, looked up and found medical records (.S. Census Bureau documents, Appendix C); these people had insurance that they were using, and mainly Medicaid. They just didn’t realize it. That lowers our number to 25-30 million “uninsured”.
Then there’s another 13 million adults and children of these 50 million people who actually are already eligible for public insurance: Medicaid, Medicare, and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP or CHIP) that didn’t sign up, but are eligible. They simply haven’t used it.
That gets our number down to 12-17 million “uninsured”, many of which simply are too healthy and young to really need health insurance.
So, you are left with a population of less than 5% of people in the United States who don’t have insurance or who are not already eligible for current government insurance programs. I would not call that a crisis in the uninsured.
It’s all in the definition and wording!
Beware, this guy’s ideology springs from the father of lies!
What does “signups” mean?
Only hundreds have been able to sign up for a health care plan at the Obamacare websites. The Wall Street Journal reported:
Okay now we will try the landline # 1-800-318-2596 listed above or 1-800-318-2596 = 1-800-FAU-CKYO.
3,300,000 divided by 75 is (OMG!) 44,000 people per day signing up.
Methinks Katherine is gonna be disappointed.
