    Only 3% of people have signed up for what Obamacare needs to get off the ground. It’s ready to implode upon itself. ’14 Mid-Terms results are going to be a joy to watch.

    With all the problems of the rollout, why do you have to make stuff up?

    The official announcement is that NO numbers are official, yet. Official numbers should be out shortly. But the Tea types can speculate all they want. For that matter, so can the Obamabots. Sceptics will have to wait for the real enrolment data.


    Steam Vapor posted that he had no trouble signing up, and his cost was $0. Which fits the WAPO and Times articles that some states accepted the ACA offer to expand Medicaid (that was mandated in the original ACA, but the mandate was declared unconstitutional by the SCOTUS, so states can accept or decline, and most have declined). Oregon has been particularly highlighted: 260,000 were found eligible for the expanded Medicare, all were sent letters, and any of those 260,000 can get enrolled with a single 800 call, no questions asked (since they’ve already been found eligible). And this will cover half the currently uninsured in Oregon. For the other half, no official data yet.

    Only the gainfully employed and those making enough money to not be heavily subsidized are getting thoroughly reamed on prices on Obamacare apparently. Of course, this is mostly people who already had insurance they liked….

    Reality. I wonder how Obama is going to blame this on bush?

    We are now hearing that the numbers will include people who have put a policy in their “cart” but have not yet “checked out” and paid for it. Can’t tell you how many things I put in my Amazon “cart” as a quick link, but never buy.

    @Debt Free

    Because the money goes right to them. Just like welfare, food stamps, unemployment, Obama Phones, you name it.

    Because giving people subsidies to buy health insurance is good for all Americans. Giving subsidies to corporations sometimes makes sense, sometimes doesn’t. Giving vast subsidies to the richest corporations every to exist on Earth is so stupid only conservatives favor it.

    Isn’t that great. Soon Obamacare will go broke, and America will go bankrupt trying to pay for it, and the economy will collapse, and we’ll all go back to hunting and gathering, and we can all blame Obama for everything.


    (Won’t affect us Republican, though; I’m immigrating to the Caymans. Which islands will you be retiring to?)

    For family coverage (under a group policy) my monthly premium has risen from $250 to $800 a month…. more than a three fold increase. Yes, I’m sure the increase is only due to inflation and corporate greed. I have some lots in Florida that I need to sell

    Giving subsidies or tax breaks can help to create jobs. Giving to one person will not.

    Trolls don’t read well. They can’t even digest basic science.
