Fox News Reports: Obama administration says a total of 106,185 people selected a health plan through the ObamaCare exchanges in the first month, a number that falls short of expectations amid widespread website failures.

LOL. So 106,000 “selected” a health plan. How many of them were Medicaid subscribers versus those who bought a plan?

My bet is less than 10,000 people actually paid for a plan.

This is an unmitigated disaster on all levels.

You are correct; they came up with a 6-digit figure. And give them credit, they picked a number at random that looks like an exact count.

I’m guessing the real number is actually < 50K.

106,805

OK. Even though we know they are cheating about this here is where they stand:

Goal for 182 days: 6,864,676
"Signups" in 31 days: 106,805

Status: 1.56% of the goal in 1/6 of the 182 day period.

Assuming they are counting a lot of people who will never fork over the $$ it is a fair estimate that they are running at less than 1% of the overall goal. They will be lucky to hit 500,000.

Let’s say 150k signed up in the first 30 days and the rate of sign up increases at 0.5%/ mnt how long will it take to get 300,000,000 signed up?

Fewer than 27,000 health care sign-ups through federal website; 79,000 more in state sites

Press Here

Enrollment numbers totaled 106,185. A Sept. 5 administration estimate had projected that 494,620 people would enroll in the first month.

Over 300,000 dumped into Medicaid. How many of the people on the exchanges just have a plan in the cart that they have not paid for? That we do not know.

From a financial standpoint, there’s no way this thing is going to work. On top of being a technical and administrative disaster, its also a monumental financial failure.

The program was never designed to work...in fact, the bigger the failure the better as far the admin is concerned. Then, they can fix the program even more...on the road to destroying the economy, transferring wealth, and fully socialized nocare.

It will take a long time.

I’m puzzled about the 106k count, though, as Washington State alone announced 50,000 enrollments (Non-Medicaid, first month paid or not paid) on Nov. 4th. Supposedly the 106k includes all the state exchanges so Washington State accounts for half??? That can’t be right.

HealthCare.gov has performed even worse than expected. Fewer than 27,000 people selected a plan through the website, compared with roughly 79,000 who picked a plan through the 15 state-based insurance exchanges. Unofficial estimates leaked earlier this week suggested the federal website had done slightly better.

Another 396,000 people have been approved for Medicaid benefits, according to HHS.

States have also added 396,261 people to Medicare state and federal mechanisms, bypassing the crippled websites, and adding people’s name to Medicare lists.

Thanks for the 26,794 Money Number.

26,794 / month X 6 months = a rousing 160,764 Liberal Democrats putting where their money where their votes are!

BTW, ‘Hope and Change’ B. ‘Hitler’ Obama will achieve the break-even goal of 7 million lucky policy holders in just over 261 years.

Yup, Obama can then finally say “I BUILT THAT !”

Only 27,794 Americans managed to push their way through the Obamacare website far enough to pick a commercial health-care plan that could work for them, according to the Obama administration.

That’s far below the goal of 500,000 completed sign-ups envisaged by President Barack Obama’s deputies prior to opening the tangled website.

Overall, 106,185 used the federal or state exchanges to select one of the government-compliant health-care plans for use in 2014, according to a Wednesday statement by the Department of Health and Human Services.

“$5 says it’s 100,000. They’re a bunch of pathological liars and they lie big.”

It really doesn't matter what the number is, inflated or not, because it's millions they need for this wreck to limp to the next service station and they aren't going to get there by January first. Then, the Sh!t is going to hit the fan when the morons who voted for these pathological liars find themselves completely uninsured with no hope of getting any insurance for the foreseeable future. Obama will be down below 30% within 60 days.
