Your Second ObamaCare Fail of the Day

Although to be fair, that’s a big improvement from Enroll Maven’s estimate of 0.6%.

But get this:

Health-care consultant Avalere Health reported Monday that 3% of the expected 2014 enrollment figure was met as of last week, or 49,100 registrants out of 1.4 million, for 12 of the 15 exchanges available in 14 states and the District of Columbia. No figures were available for California, Massachusetts and Oregon and aren’t included in the totals. Also not included are figures from HealthCare.gov, the troubled online registration system for President Obama’s health-care overhaul in 36 states.

This study excludes California, which is likely to be a massive welfare case for the rest of the nation. And it also excludes Oregon, which has been revealed to have enrolled exactly zero people. And it excludes Massachusetts, which in unlikely to have a big problem because RomneyCare has had a mandate there for years.

Let’s just be honest and admit that nobody knows what the hell is going on, except that there’s very little of it going on which isn’t a train wreck.

What Marc Malone said. Most of the 3% are not real Zerocare but Medicaid signups.

So here's a thought that just occurred to me, because of course the hapless GOP seems incapable of seizing political advantage when it clubs them over the head....

We see a number of Democrat Senators scurrying under the stove hoping to avoid the Obamacare RAID spray. And of course, it has been noted that all of them are up for re-election in 2014. Which kind of begs the question - Where exactly do Democratic Senators who are not running for 2014 election stand here? Are any of them acting at all like this is a crises, a problem, an undesirable event? Anything? Or, to continue in my entomological vein, am I just hearing a lot of crickets over there?

And if the response of Democrats not immediately running is.... to simply sit on the sidelines and let it all happen as long as they personally have at least three years before they have to respond to it politically, what does this say about the appalling cynicism of the party and those Senators, and their willingness to loose astonishing agony upon Americans across the board, and to let it continue, because their own political fortunes are secure, for now at least?

Maybe more non-'14ers are stepping up than I give credit for, but it sure ain't lost on me which Dem Senators seem to think this is a crises, and which ones don't. And it is quite obvious why.

"Health-care consultant Avalere Health reported Monday that 3% of the expected 2014 enrollment figure was met as of last week, or 49,100 registrants out of 1.4 million..."

You know it could be 100% if they considered only the 49,100 registrants who wanted to sign up.

Well, to be fair, I am sure more people would sign up, if they could. I bet most of those people signed up are in State exchanges, not the federal one.

Apparently, most of the people signing up are going into the Medicaid program, something for which they were already eligible before OCare. This further burdens the States, when they are already struggling. Of course, it is probably cheaper for them than paying for emergency-room care. An advertising campaign for Medicaid would have been far, far cheaper.
