With the highest uninsured rate of any racial or ethnic group, Latinos were expected to be major beneficiaries of the new health care law. They are a relatively young population and many are on the lower rungs of the middle class, holding down jobs that don't come with health insurance.

But the outreach effort to Hispanics got off to a stumbling start. The Spanish-language enrollment website, CuidadodeSalud.gov, was delayed due to technical problems. Its name sounds like a clunky translation from English: "Care of Health." A spot check of the Spanish site on Sunday showed parts of it still use a mix of Spanish and English to convey information, which can make insurance details even more confusing.

All indications point to lackluster Latino numbers, prompting the administration to make a special pitch as the end of open enrollment season approaches on March 31.

Will they lag behind lining up for a dollar and a freelap top to vote a straight D ticket? Obama's Dreamact EO allowed ILLEGALS to file income tax and milk us for $23K each as they used the EIC and entered all 12 of their babies. So, let's hope they took their money and ran or won't line up to vote for a lousy dollar.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

Ahh yes; what many of us used to call Spanglish.  Maybe there are more hispanics who know they're being played for fools than many here think.
