With three weeks left in the year, not one of the thousands of Massachusetts residents who need to enroll in new health insurance plans by Jan. 1 has been able to do so through the state insurance marketplace that was revamped to comply with the national Affordable Care Act.
About 126,000 people enrolled in health plans subsidized by the state have until March to choose a new plan and can keep their current coverage until then.

Then it should be 110%, like the number that voted for 0 in some districts in 2012.
WillardCare is no good either...
And you post that from the conservative bastion that is...Cuba?
What are you - the NSA?

Serves them right.
Seems to fit rather nicely for a number of reasons.
Well how else can they be forced into single payer if they can actually get insurance?!?
At first I read “Zero sign ups” as “Zero signs up” and I thought Ubama had registered for Ubamacare.
Except that all their policies are classified as "substandard" under Ubamacare, so they have to start from scratch.
