Yahoo Finance ^

The number of people actually gaining coverage under the president’s new health care law is likely around 3.4 million - or 800,000 fewer than the 4.2 million the White House says have signed up for Obamacare.

Politico reports that the country’s four largest insurance companies have provided the administration with data showing that between 15 and 20 percent of Obamacare enrollees have not paid for their premiums.

Here I thought they had signed up 20,000,000 just on Tueday when he did his comedy routine with that guy in the White House. One has to think that with all his great outreaches they would be at 100,000,000 so far. Need to sign up all the Ilegals.

Meanwhile, only 10% of uninsured are planning on signing up for a plan.

Of the uninsured who have already signed up, 50% have not paid.

Not really sure why anyone would buy anything from evasive, arrogant, dishonest sale persons, but I am quite sure that I won’t.

Of those that have “signed up”, how many have paid and what happens when you go to the doctor? If you haven’t paid, are you covered?

“Could” be 3.4 million.

Could also be 50.

My guess is that the REAL number that have paid are closer to 50.

It's not the number of sign ups. It's the number of subsidized folks. The gov just plays dumb on that one.

Obamacare...It's a right down, good for nothing, rotten failure!! (Yup...watchin' Ponderosa. Can you tell?)

I keep hearing that 15-25% of those enrolled haven’t paid yet. I suspect that number is closer to 33% for that crucial 18-35 age group.

Begs the question, will premiums skyrocket before or after the November elections?
