More than one million Americans have gone online in the past 24 hours to sign up for health insurance, it has been revealed.

A last-minute rush of shoppers visited the the ever-breaking healthcare.gov yesterday - what was supposed to be the final day people could enroll for insurance under the Affordable Care Act.

However, the deadline has now been extended to tonight to give more people a chance to sign up.

"it has been revealed"

Revealed by whom, based on what data, and for what purposes?  I smell another White House disinformation scheme.

And those insurance companies who went willingly down Obama's Primrose Path are going to be crucified by the Administration and the whole Democrat Party if they don't cover every single one of these people in the next seven days.

George Will and Charles Krauthammer are both warning of the impending Federal bailout of insurers by second quarter 2014, as a direct result of forcing them to cover millions of people with no means or way to pay them one red cent.  That's beside the point that so many hospitals and doctors are not participating in Obamacare, and in addition to the immediate fiscal crisis most States are about to face because of the massive expansion of Medicaid that is underway as we speak.

I think the worst is still ahead.

People are going to die from this disaster. People are going to lose their lives to Obamacare. It is going to happen.
 
When the Obamacare 'body-count' starts to tally and hits home, that is when all of this theory, this grand experiment, becomes very real in a life or death way. And that is when all of this blows up.

Deaths will be blamed on the heartless, evil insurance companies that put profit over people, and on greedy doctors who won't accept Obamacare policies.

The body-count is something they know will happen. Maybe it is something they want?  One would hope that is when the LIV's will wake up and revolt against Obamacare. I doubt that.
