And you know the 7 million number that they themselves made as a goal was a best-case scenario to even come close to making this thing viable.

Meanwhile he has unilaterally delayed politically/economically unpopular portions of the law (that were intended to help fund the massive expenses) until just after the elections. What a coincidence.

I guess after the election you won't be able to punish your elected representatives who supported this colossal debacle....they hope your dumb enough.

Premiums/costs continue to skyrocket for all those who were already paying for health insurance. Now we get our premiums doubled and benefits cut so the poor can get theirs for little or nothing.

Lets not forget that mine and many others healthcare plans now have massive deductibles and coverages that financially prohibit affordability/usage.

My son already is going without a needed prescription. My plan will not longer cover ANY brand name drug...whether generic works or not. $765/month out of pocket. I also have a $4000 deductible before ANY coverage.

Hope it works out better for those of you who now get healthcare while my family members are going without what they had before.

In the 2104 elections, don't reelect anyone who voted for Obamacare.

Another questionable story from "Administration Propaganda."

The number may reflect the people who "signed up" but the exact definition remains murky. Does it include the masses of people signed up with "subsidies" which makes it just another welfare hand out program? Does it include people who requested a policy and have actually paid for it? Or, does it omit the people who failed to complete the deal and remain uninsured?

With the "most transparent administration in history" you really need to parse every statement and check the details to see what they are actually saying, and then check to see if it is true. Often it is deceptive and false.

What is the latest on the number of people whose policies they liked, but were forced off of them by Obamacare? Bet they are not shouting that out loud.

So, are there enough healthy people signing up that their unused premiums are going to cover the cost of all the subsidies and heavy users of the system?

Not even close.

Will it ever?

I didn't think so.

They are counting plans in the shopping carts.
Now, think about that. How many times have you gone to your shopping cart to find DUPLICATES of what you ordered? You were sure you only ordered one but the cart showed FOUR.
And when the connection is slow and the program flawed you get more errors.
So...maybe that 3.3 million is actually 2 million when you scrub out the duplicates.
Just sayin'.
