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. But thousands of others are depending on a new plan to start on the first of the year, and some worry that their coverage will not be ready in time. Their anxiety has only been heightened by stubborn technical problems, such as a snag this week that blocked many people from signing in to the website.

You would think with Romneycare already in place, Massachusetts would have been one of the states most easily adapted to the new provisions.

That seems like a really high number. I know in our neck of the woods there is 97% coverage. And you ain’t gonna get that last 3%. They all go to the hospital where my wife works! They are the homeless and crazy.

Then it should be 110%, like the number that voted for 0 in some districts in 2012.

This is funny. Obama managed to even screw up Romneycare.

ZeroCare

Seems to fit rather nicely for a number of reasons.

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.
