Most who checked out ObamaCare online did not sign up for it
« on: October 03, 2013, 10:55:00 AM »
The most recent spin, as concerning Tuesday's rollout of the ObamaCare exchanges, is that the American public must be very "hungry" for these exchanges, since so many people attempted to access them that the site crashed.

But that it hardly an objective analysis.

It seems to presuppose that those attempting to access the site were all looking to purchase healthcare insurance.

From, as concerning Connecticut:

As the Obama-loving media echo White House talking points that opening day "glitches" at online healthcare exchanges crashed Tuesday due to a flood of interested Americans clamoring for insurance, they might consider what happened in Connecticut.
According to Congressman Jim Himes (D-Conn.), out of the 28,000 visitors to his state's exchange Tuesday, only 167 actually signed up...

For those that can do math, that means 0.6 percent of visitors actually applied for insurance.

And the numbers in other states were, reportedly, not much better.
