...and while you are at it, please describe in detail the system and/or coding upgrades that magically allowed for such a huge increase in “enrollees”.

And that’s just the people who don’t have jobs. Wait until people who work can afford it.

In Michigan they reported that only 55% of those that signed up paid their first months bill.

You’re right. This sounds exactly like the old Soviet government/state-run Pravda spin on what a great economy they had….until it imploded overnight.
It could happen here, with all the lies this bunch of Leftists have been ladling out to the low-information/university Communist crowd.

“61 percent of projected ObamaCare enrollment was met by March 1, the numbers rocketed to 115 percent by April 19”

This sounds like the voter tally in certain inner city precincts.

Founded by LBJ and current head helped found Center for American Progress per Wikipedia. Legally it may have been legally on partisan in its creation documents, but it’s a typical ministerial think tank.
