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.
