Early numbers show 3% enrollment in Obamacare among 12 exchanges
MarketWatch ^ | Monday November 11, 2013 | Russ Britt

If you’re expecting a low number of enrollees when the Department of Health and Human Services announces its first round of Obamacare registrant figures this week, here’s a sneak peek into what to expect.

Health-care consultant Avalere Health reported Monday that 3% of the expected 2014 enrollment figure was met as of last week, or 49,100 registrants out of 1.4 million, for 12 of the 15 exchanges available in 14 states and the District of Columbia. No figures were available for California, Massachusetts and Oregon and aren’t included in the totals. Also not included are figures from HealthCare.gov, the troubled online registration system for President Obama’s health-care overhaul in 36 states.

“Yes, 5 million people who had insurance have lost it but if only 49,000 people who didn’t have insurance get some then it will be worth it.” - Barack Insane 0bama

In other words, the number of folks who are losing their health insurance is quadruple the number that is enrolling!

This is going to end up just like the Second Iraq War: The Rats voted for it and then all of sudden when it didn’t look so good politically they started blaming everyone except themselves.

The District of Columbia was last in both number of enrollees and percentage, with 300 and 1%, respectively.

Which tells me that the 49,100 national figure is GROSSLY overinflated. Why? Because out of 300 D.C. "enrollments" only 5 paid. The rest are just looky loos. Apply the D.C. ratio of paid to "enrolled" looky loos and the REAL figure is LESS than a thousand paid enrollees.

Once the guvment has the info .... it will become interesting when they find out them with the guvment ain’t there to help ‘em. Some people cannot be warned. Pity for the low information signer-upers. Course I have pity for all of us too. We get the shaft too ... no gold mine but will take a gold mine to afford zer0care. Everyone will be unpleasantly surprised and regrettably we, those not supporting zer0care will have to support it anyways. Ain’t gonna be cheap, even for those signing up to receive. Will take a few years and then the signer-upers will be screaming. Too late.

According to Carville it is. The moron suggests Obama use crack pipe therapy like the Toronto mayor. So, there you have it, smoke crack as part of health care, and thus it all looks acceptable now.

This is how they cynically solve their lack of delivery.

I wonder when the enrollment number comes out this week, we will also get the number who have actually paid?

The trap is laid. They let slide the BS 49k number, then when the official number comes out that is a little higher the headlines will run:

“Obamacare signups higher than expected!”

“Analyst surprised at higher than expected Obamacare enrollments”

“In a stunning reversal of previous reports, Obamacare numbers actually higher than analysts predicted.”

“Republican efforts to defund Obamacare stymied by higher than expected enrollment numbers”

I’ve seen this trick so many times....sigh

The Marxist's plot for the 2014 midterms:

1) Rollout 0bamacare with failed website. Refuse to delay individual mandate. This forces Americans off their plans and with no way to fix the problem because of the deliberately failed website.

2) Millions of Americans kicked off of their current health care plans. Website failure continues..

3) The Democrats propose 'Single Payer' as the remedy for the health care problems engineered by Team Barry.

4) The GOP strongly resists transition into 'Single Payer' as Unconstituional, but the American people are now desperate for health care plans!

5) Republicans are demonized by the media for "denying Americans health care" (by fighting Single Payer), leading up to the 2014 midterms.

I'm reading that number is probably close to 2 million, certainly over one. At one that's that's 20 times more losing coverage. And estimates are that upwards of 5 million will lose coverage in the "first" stage, second stage next year when business' comply will be far worse.
