Ouch: Obamacare Enrollment Numbers Fall Two Million Short of Goal

White House officials announced Sunday that Obamacare enrollment has reached more than 1.1 million, this falls more than 2 million sign-ups short of their 2013 goal.

As reported by TIME:

Quote
The federal health care marketplace saw only 27,000 people sign up in October and 137,000 in November. Though surpassing the million mark is a positive sign for President Barack Obama’s landmark health care reform, the administration had hoped that more 3.3 million Americans would sign up for insurance through federal and state exchanges by year’s end.

White House officials have yet to release data on the 14 states managing their own exchanges. Figures for December are expected next month. The administration is aiming to sign up 7 million Americans before the first-year open enrollment period ends in late March.


From Hawaii, President Obama claimed:

Quote
“The basic structure of that law is working despite all the problems — despite the website problems, despite the messaging problems.”


 Messaging, perhaps, like the 2013 Lie of Year: “if you like your plan, you can keep it?”

The basic structure is not really working either. Not only are millions of Americans loosing their health insurance plans, but they are finding their new insurance plans anything but affordable.

Organizing for Action, the group behind BarackObama.com, tweeted:

However, based on America's reaction to the bill, few people will be lining up to join that fight.

How much longer can this farce continue??  The original reason for passing this was 30 million people who had no insurance.  The Regime knocked that back by setting a goal of only 7 Million for open enrollment, and they are so far behind the curve now there is little or no hope of meeting even the minimal goal of 7 million.  The insurance companies have got to be doing the math on this and I cannot believe that they like the numbers they are getting...

Exactly...and yet the press allows this crew to pretend the exact opposite!  When the fit hits the shan this time, it is going to be incredibly messy.....

When in five long years of this administration have they ever one time subtracted numbers?  They only know how to add 1 + 1 but not subtract -6.  Same with their job numbers.
