Looky Loo: A term for someone who looks at something with no intention of buying it.
CNN Money published an article trumpeting the fact that 10,000 per day were "applying" (also "registering") on the California Obamacare website, Covered California. Among the many statistics happily tossed out by the reporter, Tami Luhby, one is notably missing. The most important stat of them all: how many people actually paid for an Obamacare insurance policy. So let us now join Ms Luhby reciting the California Obamacare statistics...except for the most vital one:

MEDICAID enrollments are counted as obamacare sign ups

A contract is not valid until a minimum of $1 is exchanged between the contracted and the contractor. That will not be until December 15.
That is when the real numbers will be lied about.

Yes, but it's probably the same 10,000 applying over and over until they're successful. And I betcha they're not the healthy young kids that Obamacare needs to enroll to be solvent.

You don't need $1 as the minimum consideration for a contract. In fact, you don't need money. As long as the value of the consideration can objectively be determined, you have consideration necessary to make a binding contract.
A peppercorn can constitute consideration; in fact, Bermuda pays one peppercorn a year to Queen Elizabeth for a one-year rental of Bermuda.
