HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced the official Obamacare enrollment number moments ago. The Obama administration says it anticipated that nearly 500,000 would have enrolled during Obamacare’s first month.

Even the lowball number announced is likely inflated, thanks to the way the administration is overcounting.

While the administration claims 106,185 have signed up to obtain health care through Obamacare, some 5 million have seen their healthcare policies cancelled to comply with Obamacare’s mandates.

Update: Fox has more.

More: Wow.


When did Monty Python replace our government?

More: Or less…


More: Deserved snark.


Update: Even this lie comes with weasel words.


Update: Geez.


That’s at the same time a million Californians lost their healthcare, whether they liked it or not.

Update: They’re not fooling anyone.


Except themselves.


The farce continues.


Tweet of the Obama era:


Update: MSNBC’s Krystal Ball — “It’s Bill Clinton’s fault!

Update: The RNC reacts–

“While the Obama White House is sure to blame the poor enrollment numbers on the many unacceptable tech glitches that have frustrated Americans, I maintain that the larger reason ObamaCare has failed is because it was conceived based on a lie that Americans could keep their healthcare plans and has failed to address our number one healthcare problem in America: soaring costs. Reasons one million and one million and one why the federal government should not be running our healthcare.” – RNC Chairman Reince Priebus

How many paid "Full price", and how many are subsidized? How many of those who stuck through the crap machine to get it have a serious pre-existing condition?

In other words, how many 'median' people, who aren't having the price or benefits skewed, as an ordinary future risk management policy, have signed up and committed to a policy, and are paying full price for it?

I'm surprised the still can't be correct total totals weren't released on Friday news dump day.

Though like the IPCC this is but the 1st release before 3, 5 or more revisions take place.

How many actually paid?
How many merely enrolled in Medicaid?
How many ONLY perused the site?
How many perused the site because their policy was canceled and/ or their deductible WILL 'necessarily skyrocket'?
How many have LEGIT pre-existing conditions?
What is the average age of those who'd purchased or are Medicare/ Medicaid enrollees?
Ratio of private sector- public sector union purchased and/ or enrolled?

Honestly the aforementioned and MANY more ?s could & should be noted. This economic leviathan SHOULD at the very least be thorough.

I know, a Federal entity having up to date, common sense programs. Silly me..

wow after a month of B.O. and his failures we get a figure of enrollees that might fill up a basketball stadium.

Amazing, simply amazing, but that is what happens when we get an affirmative action hire, who by his own words is an unpatriotic, irresponsible failure.

And can B.O. stop with his being the victim and feeling our pain.

Am wondering if he only learned of the problems with his so called signature failure when he read it in the papers.

If Obamacare were a private insurance, the CEO would be halled of to jail to share a cell with Bernie Madoff, and his delusional underling would be put on meds in Arkham Asylum.

27,000 were counted at the federal exchange. 79,000 were counted at state exchanges. Counted in the 27,000 were people who merely put a package in their shopping cart. This does not represent an final application as the shopping cart is only a holding area for future decisions and can be cancelled at any time. Claiming 106,000 (total) vs 27,000 (federal) is radically inflated over the few hundred (my guess) real applications.

Since when does Moran get to write on weekdays? The GOP does not have to bailout ObamaCare.

You may be an Obama supporter, but are you really willing to support others who will be given your tax money to provide them with health insurance? Your rates go up to support them and your annual deductible amount goes up, too. This isn’t for a single year, but will go on forever if obamacare is not repealed. Since the Democrats will not join the effort, join with us in voting Republican to get enough people in office who want to repeal the law. Vote your pocketbook, not some ideology you have accepted. Remember, it’s your money. This situation is hardly different from being assigned to support an illegal alien.

Yeah, this....
you will pay this monthly FOREVER. Every month, every year of your life, and every increase every year. This concept alone sickens my millennial kids. One has a student loan they are desperately paying off as fast as possible. Imagine the pincer squeeze of these premiums added to the non-dischargeable student loans.

Where's the press to dig into what happens if you lose your job? Natural disaster hits your town? Sick in the hospital and still have to cough up the premiums?
What if you change jobs with a different pay rate?

So many variables, I have to question what cockamamie schemes are hidden in the regs for what they thought of, nevermind what they did not?

And how soon does the hammer fall regarding all your risky lifestyle choices? Have a motorcycle? Like to go rock climbing? Dangerous job? Do you fry your chicken in oil? Sheesh, the mind just boggles how deep this will go. The way the "health research" has been of late, one day eggs will be illegal, the next day they'll require 2 per day to be "current on your health requirements".

It is truly evil, and insane. And not at all about health insurance, let alone the care.

Its nice that more people get to experience something as awful, draconian, arbitrary and inflexible as child support payments.

Commander Zero wants the system to fail so he can force single payer on the nation. That means the payer is the tax-payer, or only about 45% of the population. If that happens, look for a national sales tax, supposedly dedicated to health care, in your very near future. Of course, the Congress will "divert" any "excess" collections to other purposes.

Most people that are signed up are exempt and on the Gold Plan.

If you were offered the 'Gold Plan' and exempt from having to pay for it, wouldn't you rush to sign up?

Obamacare 'IS' free (if your one of the 'more equal' groups)

My neighbor, who wears a 3 carat diamond, drives a brand new Cadillac that she paid for cash, and has her free Obama phone, collects a generous pension of her Operating Engineers union boss husband, just received a letter from the union that she will be provided the Gold Plan at no cost.

All those people rushing (trying to) to sign up are 'the exempt from paying' government and union members getting the Gold Plan that covers everything. So how will government pay for all the thousands of exempt, Gold Plan recipients??? You will, that are not the chosen ones (and just had your hours cut).

yep, this is the law that congress didn't read and now exempts themselves from having to pay for it (but of course they will have the Gold Plan)


It's interesting how American youth can organize, rally, get national MSM coverage overnight over something like the KONY scam but not a peep over their own devastating financial subversion and future forced serfdom.

Obamacare on one side and student loan prison on the other.

So students are learning about sex toys, deviation, global warming lies and Muslim tolerance?

No time for personal finance or the Federalist Papers? Of course not, that would lead to student riots.

At what point will the students get it? Education and Obamacare for a better life (not yours).
