    so of the 30 million who were previously uninsured, maybe 2-3 million more were added to insurance rolls. most of us will pay more, either because we were forced into more expensive policies, or because our taxes are going up. And we will still have tens of millions of uninsured.

    Thanks dems. If you think the problem is bad, just wait til you see the dem solution!

    I found it interesting that the National Journal reported that 20% had not paid their premiums and that in Nevada 36% had not paid......I don't know about you Barack Obama but if I don't pay my premiums on my Home, Car, Life or Health? I don't have coverage and I know for a fact that my Insurance Company doesn't call the networks to ask for permission to celebrate selling policies that they haven't collected on? Only a fool would count such as a enrollment!

    This was NOT the plan for Barack at all. The plan was to sign up young healthy kids for one of the offered plans at the state exchanges not government Medicaid. Who is going to pay for that expansion in Medicaid?? Take a guess and then look in the mirror - you have your answer.

    Young healthy kids are not signing up at all for the exhange plans which sort of turns Obamacare on its head. You won't hear that from Jay Carney at propoganda central nor will Barack let you in on that dirty little secret either. Barack will tell you "if you like your insurance you can keep your insurance period". We all know how that big lie went down.

    It all comes down to whose numbers you actually believe. 2 weeks ago the Administration couldn't say how many had signed up and how many were those who were previously without insurance. Now they have very good numbers that match most of their goals. A different report said that the States that expanded Medicaid were showing a 4.5% increase and those that did not were showing 1.5% increase.
