Obamacare is supposed to insure 20 million Americans who weren’t insured. That is millions, not hundreds. After 8 days, only 90,000 people in the entire country have signed up and that is according to Sebelius, so it is probably a lie. The true disaster that is and will be Obamacare is being covered up by the incompetent government drones running this abortion of a program and the liberal MSM which is desperately trying to spin it as a success. The huge success in Democrat run Maryland is just the tip of the iceberg. They have 600,000 people in their fine state without health insurance and a full .05% of these unisured people have signed up for Obamacare. One twentieth of one percent!!!!
Is the website that bad? Are the mouth breathers too stupid to figure it out? Or does everyone just realize what an expensive inefficient clusterfuck it will be and want no parts of it?
Obamacare is the iceberg that will sink our Titanic nation. The first class passengers already have health insurance and have already left on the lifeboats. The peons without health insurance are locked in the lower decks and will go down with the ship. The owners (health care industry) and investors (Wall Street) in the cruise line have bought extra insurance and will make out like bandits as the ship goes down.
The best way to get rid of Obamacare is to let the American people experience Obamacare.
Maryland Says It Has 326 Enrollees in Health Exchange
The state of Maryland says it has thousands of people interested in buying health insurance on its new state-run exchange, but only 326 so far have actually enrolled in new coverage.
That number is one of the few trickling out about enrollment in the new health-insurance exchanges created by the 2010 Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare. The federal government, which is operating exchanges on behalf of 36 states, hasn’t given enrollment numbers yet for its HealthCare.gov exchange, which, as The Wall Street Journal reported today, has been plagued by design and software problems.
Maryland is one of 14 states running its own exchange. With a Democratic governor and Democratic-dominated legislature, the state’s commitment to making the law work was never in doubt, but it ran into considerable technology problems early on. (This Washington Post story has more details.)
On Monday, the state said it is still working through technical issues and conceded that MarylandHealthConnection.gov “may be inconsistent, especially during periods of peak usage.”
Those problems are reflected in the Maryland numbers released Monday, the first of what the state said would be regular data releases. The state said 13,532 accounts with verified identity were created as of Sunday evening, and it has seen 170,000 unique visitors to the website. But only 326 people were actually enrolled in new health-insurance plans.
The state has about 600,000 people without health insurance, according to the Census Bureau, so it has a long way to go to make a dent in its uninsured rate. Officials say there’s still plenty of time, so long as people aren’t deterred by website problems. Open enrollment continues through March 31.
