Document: Just Six People Enrolled in Obamacare Plans on Launch Day
by John Sexton 31 Oct 2013, 4:09 PM PDT

The administration has refused to release any data on how many people enrolled in plans in the past month. But now CBS's Sharyl Attkisson has obtained documents requested by the House Oversight Committee which reveal that just 6 people signed up the first day.

As recently as Wednesday, Sec. Sebelius refused to say how many people have signed up for new insurance using the Obamacare exchange. The excuse has been that the numbers are not available. But the documents obtained by CBS show that the administration was keeping track at "twice-a-day 'war room' meetings" at CMS.

The notes from these meetings reveal that 6 people signed up on day one. By the end of Wednesday (the 2nd day) the total was 248 nationwide. According to CBS the exchanges "need to average 39,000 enrollees a day to meet the goal of seven million by March 1."

The administration has put one of the private contractors who worked on the site in charge of making it work correctly. The new deadline for a fully functioning site is the end of November.

Megyn Kelly just talked about it. She just said they dropped the Cadillac plans.

All hell is going to break loose once they cannot spin the numbers on this any more.  They have about two more weeks for that fuse to burn and the Administration will rapidly run out of runway after that.

This is hilarious.  Time is the enemy of Obamacare.  The longer it takes to sign up fully-paying young adults, the more expensive this thing becomes. 

Insurance companies are going to jack up premiums across the board when they can't cover their costs.  They can do that; they have to.

And then there's those 93 million currently covered by employer plans who will be kicked off because their plans can't be grandfathered.

This is a cluster of galactic magnitude.

All this aggravation for this shit!  But let's pretend.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

Did anyone watch Hannity.  Juan Williams, Joe Trippi and the black radio guy all three in separate segments saying the same thing... the government is saving all these people being cancelled from inferior plans..... ignoring what the people being cancelled are saying.

I don't find anything funny about this whatsoever.  Yes, it is becoming and will become even more expensive - all on the backs of the middle class.  You find that funny? 

Now that October 1st has come and gone the Democrats are never going to say oops we made a mistake, instead they will throw even more money at it in the form of bandaids and they are already using their Chicago-style politics to blame it all on the insurance companies and say "see we were right, we really need a single-payer system."  Either way we are stuck with this because too many gave lip service to killing it off - rather a wink and a nod....

So, nope, there isn't a darned thing funny about this at all.  Must be nice to sit on Olympus as you are and laugh at all us "little" people stuck with this monster.
