Reuters reported yesterday that practically no one has signed up for Obamacare so far. Of course, most folks couldn’t even log on to the website run by the Feds. But let’s limit the sample size to the states that run their own exchanges, shall we? How’d they do?
Nov 11 (Reuters) – President Barack Obama’s healthcare reform has reached only about 3 percent of its enrollment target for 2014 in 12 U.S. states where new online health insurance marketplaces are mostly working smoothly, a report released on Monday said.
States with functioning exchanges have signed up 49,100 people compared with the 1.4 million people expected to be enrolled for 2014, according to the report by healthcare research and consultancy firm Avalere Health.
With enrollment in the federal HealthCare.gov website serving 36 states stalled by technical failures, the weak sign-ups for functioning insurance exchanges could be due to the administration’s difficulty to promote the program as a success, Avalere said.
Golly.You mean ads that appeal to a dumbed down electorate in Colorado didn’t land the big numbers either? Ads like this one?
You stay classy, Obamacare. <== See more here.UPDATE Planned Parenthood can even understand how crass this ad is. Unfortunately, they don’t realize that it isn’t an anti-Obamacare ad. Oh boy.
