The Health and Human Services Department said 106,185 people have successfully applied for and chosen private insurance through the health care law's new marketplaces. That total is only about 20 percent of the administration's initial enrollment target for October, the first month in which consumers were able to sign up for coverage.
Officials have long acknowledged they would fall short of that target because of the problems surrounding HealthCare.gov, the problem-plagued website that handles enrollment for 36 states.
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.

I am wallowing in my SCHADENFREUDE!!!
I couldn’t even begin to imagine this awful result...better than I had ever hoped for, with all due respect for those who have lost their insurance ( but I believe the govt will be doing a “quick fix” for those people.)
Those in the Republican’s district who agrees with Landrieu’s bill (the guy who was pro-CFL light bulbs) should be flooding his email and voicemail and going to his office.
I agree with Rush’s assertion that Republicans actually wan’t 0bummercare to succeed.
What’s the age breakdown? That’s even more important than the numbers.
Approx 70,000 per month means over 350 years to sign up 300 million.
Seems to me those that are signing up are those motivated... Those that have a precondition or people getting it free.
Paying customers, probably not so much so.
Thats a shame
More people can purchase concert tickets online in less than an hour.
More posts were deleted in this thread than can use the Deathcare website at the same time.

That’s not enrolled. I bet zero are enrolled.
Gonna take longer than that. People will die and fall off the ranks.
Gonna go out on a limb and guess that the entire 27K were folks with serious health problems who couldn’t get anything before. The books ought to balance really fast when their bills start coming in. As with car insurance I always thot there should be a hi-risk system to help with really serious problems. But Kenyoncare doesn’t really address that without doing serious damage every where else.
Is the information about this debacle reaching - and influencing - those Rush Limbaugh calls low information voters?
We have a president that seems to have one goal. Destroying this country as we know it. He said it personally himself. I will fundamentally change America.
Also how many of the applicants have major illnesses so to them its cheaper than buying direct care.
this will bankrupt the insurers.
