Fewer than 50,000 people signed up for exchanges on healthcare.gov?

Post  fshnski on Mon Nov 11, 2013 5:49 pm

Between 40,000 and 50,000 people signed up for private health insurance plans through the website for Obamacare exchanges, well short of the goal put forward by the White House, according to a new report.

Citing “people familiar with the matter,” The Wall Street Journal found that actual enrollments were roughly one-tenth of the Obama administration's goal for the first month of the public health exchanges. Administration officials had expected that about 500,000 people would sign up for new health plans during the month of October.

The Department of Health and Human Services has yet to officially release enrollment figures. A HHS spokeswoman again reiterated that such a tally would come later this week.

The White House began lowering expectations for the first batch of enrollment figures, with HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius telling lawmakers last week that the initial tally would be “very low.”

Healthcare.gov has been overrun by problems that have kept consumers from comparing insurance plans online. The government has also had issues sharing information with insurers about the lucky few who have managed to navigate the online marketplaces.

The rocky rollout has taken a toll on the president’s approval ratings and has even caused some skittish Democrats to question whether the administration should delay portions of the president’s signature domestic achievement until the litany of problems is resolved.

I heard that. This whole thing needs to be scrapped, taxes and all. You know what. It is all about taxes anyway. It adds a lot of taxes but doesn't do a darn thing to help with health insurance.

You know most of them didn't sign up to pay a lot.

Oregon has not signed up a single person in their exchange yet. They have spent 300 million so far. If you add up the 600 million plus that the US has spent and the money each state has spent (Oregon along 300 million) I think we could have paid for everybody's health care in the country instead of setting up computer programs. What a waste!!!!

I don't understand? It sounded like a good idea. NOT!

Not a single Republican voted for obamacare! Not one!

Was it because they thought it was a good idea and they didn't want the Democrats to get credit for it?

Or was it because they didn't think it was the best thing for America and a plan that wasn't going to work?

They knew it was a rotten idea. They knew it wouldn't work and was nothing but a big tax increase one the American people. It's 6% of the American economy and Obama was hoping to control that.
