Nobody Buys Their Insurance There Anymore — It’s Too Crowded

October 30th, 2013 - 7:23 am

CUPCAKE

Details:

In yet another bungle for the botched government insurance rollout, the state Health Department has mistakenly listed numerous non-health-related business as enrollment sites — including a Brooklyn cupcake shop that has been besieged by callers.

“I have nothing to do with this,” said Carmen Rodriguez owner of Brooklyn Cupcake in Williamsburg. “I run a very busy establishment, and I’m like, what is going on?”
Because of the mistake, her bakery has gotten 150 calls from people seeking medical-insurance information.

“There has to be somebody who can help with ObamaCare; that’s their own mess,” she said.

See, that’s where Rodriguez is wrong. Under collectivism, anyone’s mess is everyone’s mess — and good luck getting all of them to clean it up.

The cupcake folks are missing an opportunity. "Yes, we can talk to you about ObamaCare. Come buy a cupcake and we'll talk it over."

They could offer a 10% discount on cupcakes for those referrals; even decorate it with an appropriate logo. They'll make millions, I tell you, millions!

Only 150 calls? If the volumes were as big as the Administration has been saying, shouldn't they have gotten at least 10X that?

I don't know -- maybe this is deliberate on the part of our gov -- I, for one, would rather have a cupcake than Obamacare

Some years ago, Verizon accidentally reassigned a friend's cell phone number to a business that had purchased a lot of advertising. As such he got thousands of calls, and his phone was effectively useless.

It took Verizon two days to fix it, and they gave him free cell calls for a year.

Gonna take a wild guess that the government solution is less effective.

Movie idea: through continued twists and accidents, Brooklynites are kicked off their insurance plans and forced to buy cupcakes. The cupcake shop is forced to sell all cupcakes with sprinkles, marshmallows, chocolate shavings, and extra icing. Everything that can happen, does.

I'd love to get that script written, but the typing monkeys say they're all booked up.
