Figures. Majority of 25,000 Enrolled Through Washington Obamacare Website Will Have Fully-Subsidized Insurance

Now we know who’s signing up for Obamacare.
 Those who will get their insurance for free.
Thanks-Obamacare

The freeloaders are all signed up.
MyNorthwest.com reported:


Enrollments in health care plans through Washington state’s new health care exchange continue to increase, but it turns out a majority of the enrollees so far won’t be paying for their plans.

“The Medicaid newly eligible population accounts for a little more than half of the 25,000 that we’ve seen,” Michael Marchand, with the new Washington Health Care Exchange, tells KIRO Radio’s Dave Ross.

A Medicaid expansion under Obamacare raised the income threshold for those eligible.

“So that’s the new population that’s part of the expansion that the state undertook,” says Marchand. “It’s quite possible that those people may have never had health insurance in the past and have been able to go to Washington Health Plan Finder and determine that their eligibility actually qualifies them for free insurance.”

In addition to the 25,000 enrolled, an additional 37,000 residents have completed online applications that are awaiting payment that is due in December.

The state estimates about 1 million Washington state residents do not have health insurance, or about one in seven people.

Marchand says they’ve found the bulk of those uninsured will likely get fully-subsidized health care or assistance of some kind.

Meanwhile, young healthy Americans are still dodging the exchanges like the plague

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions.

Love the last line,
"Meanwhile, young healthy Americans are still dodging the exchanges like the plague"

Their big success story  is signing up 25,000 people that would have qualified for Medicaid without Obamacare. And 25,000 out of all of Washington's poor is a drop in the bucket.
 
A nation that turns away from prayer will ultimately find itself in desperate need of it. :Jonathan Cahn

More people have signed up for a possible trip to Mars than have signed up for Obamacare. :silly:
