Remember when the Obama Administration assured us that you could keep your health insurance plan if you liked it? Remember when they told us that people would flock to Obamacare and that it would cover millions of people? Apparently someone forgot to inform Obamacare itself, as the official enrollment numbers are only at a depressing 106k:
Putting a statistic on disappointment, the Obama administration revealed Wednesday that fewer than 27,000 people signed up for private health insurance last month in the 36 states relying on a problem-filled federal website. States running their own enrollment systems did better, signing up more than 79,000, for a total enrollment of over 106,000.
As if that were not bad enough, not only are the enrollment numbers so dismal, the amount of health plan cancellations cause by Obamacare is nearing five MILLION:
In the market for individually-purchased health insurance, more than 4.8 million Americans have received notices that their preexisting plans are soon to be illegal, and will be cancelled. Many more cancellation notices are imminent.
Ironically, the Liberal state of California is responsible for for about 1/5th (1 million) of those cancellations by itself.
More than 1 million cancellation notices have been sent to Californians as the Affordable Care Act begins allowing individuals to buy insurance through exchanges, Jones said. The federal law requires policies to offer minimum levels of coverage, forcing companies to terminate many existing plans.
Man, I wonder if Debbie Wasserman Schultz still wants to run on this platform in 2014?
