ObamaCare Enrollment Numbers Are Staggering

And that's "staggering" in a negative sense. While the Obama administration refuses to tell WE THE PEOPLE how many have signed up since the first day of the ObamaCare rollout, the numbers are trickling in from the individual states. From a post in the Wall Street Journal:

"Last Wednesday, Delaware announced its first enrollee (she was in the Rose Garden Monday). The same day, Alaska topped that with seven reported enrollees, while Wisconsin said that fewer than 50 people had signed up. Friday, Oregon admitted that no Oregonian had purchased a private insurance plan, while South Dakota reported 23 enrollees. This Monday, North Dakota reported 20 sign-ups to date."

See: http://stream.wsj.com/story/latest-headlines/SS-2-63399/SS-2-362692/

By my count, that's about 100 people. ONE HUNDRED FROM SIX STATES. No wonder they're scared to death to report these numbers. If they did, WE THE PEOPLE might REALLY get mad.

@Sebe: Being the Sage of these here blogs, and I am serious and not being sarcastic; are you familiar with any of the circumstances surrounding the implementation of the Health Policy implemented by the Romney Administration in Massachusetts when he was Governor of that State? Course dealing with one state is not necessarily comparable to dealing with ALL the States. But do you have any information regarding on how things transpired during the implementation of Romney's Health Care Act?

As a bonus (to me) how do you see things evolving in the Republican Party regarding the whole shooting match: Obamacare, Tea Party, Establishment Conservatives, and the changing voting demographics?

Your comments will be greatly appreciated and I assure you that I will treat whatever you might have time or care to write in a dignified manner.

Hi Jimmy:

It is irrelevant what happened with Romney's health care system. My tax dollars didn't pay for it. I only care about how the Obama administration has butchered the implementation of an already flawed, misprioritized health care law. They have been preparing for this roll-out for two years. It wasn't ready for prime time on 1 October. From today's congressional testimony, it was clear that the system developers told somebody in the Obama administration (who is/are trying to dodge responsibility) that it wouldn't be ready on 1 October, and they basically ignored that input and decided to go full steam ahead anyway. That was STUPID. They are now reaping what they have sowed and the public relations and political nightmare that has been created is THEIR OWN FAULT. They should have just postponed it for a year - LIKE THE REPUBLICANS WANTED - and they would have probably been ready for prime time. But for purely political purposes, they put themselves and the American people through this meat grinder. They should be PUNISHED for this.

It was also reported today that this site/automated system was estimated at $94 million dollars when President Obama was selling it to the American people back in 2009. The current estimate is $600 MILLION DOLLARS. If this is true, somebody should be PUNISHED for that too. Can't blame Bush. Can't blame the Republicans for p*ss poor planning and p*ss poor implementation which costs you and me - the taxpayers - more than six times more than they said and the system can't even process 100 people from six states in three weeks. Somebody needs to pay - big time.

As for the Republicans, they STILL look like they're not ready for prime time, but the Democrats have given them a hell-of-an-issue for 2014 and 2016. I see the impact of ObamaCare on the average American's health care costs (I'm talking about the 85% here) and the fiasco of implementation as being FRESH in the memory of people when they vote in the next two national elections. The Republicans still can't get their act together, but Mr. Obama has done them a lot of GOOD in the past 10 months. If he keeps it up, the Republicans might not have to do a whole lot to gain seats in the Senate and the House.

I don't like any of the GOP candidates that are likely to head the 2016 ticket - at least those who have been mentioned in the news over the past year. Rubio has faded - partially due to some self-inflicted damage - and there has been talk recently that McCain is looking at another run. Oh, brother. I still think Jeb Bush and a woman - any prominent Republican woman but Palin - as VP would have a chance. Too bad Condi Rice doesn't want it - but she's probably right in thinking it's not worth the grief.

Yours truly,

Signed: your bloggin' buddy

P.S. When I say "I don't like" them, I mean I don't like their chances to beat the Democratic candidate - especially if it is Hillary Clinton. If HRC runs - no matter how poorly she fares in the "beauty contest" - the GOP is going to need some "charisma" to win. That's how Obama did it against her in the 2008 Dem primaries, and that's probably what will be needed in 2016 for the GOP to have a good shot at the White House. If she runs against John McCain, it won't make any difference if she comes across as the Wicked Witch of the West to non-Democrats, she would probably still win.

...and if things weren't going bad enough for the Obama administration - on ALL fronts - if THIS happens it might be the straw that breaks the camel's back:

Jimmy, according to the constitution 10 Amendment this power is only authorized to be implemented by the states and its people. The same for Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare. All of these programs aren't even authorized at the federal level by the constitution. Not even healthcare. These programs would be ran better and more efficient in the private sector. And if our rights are violated within these contracts we would have the Feds to support and defend us. Example; remember when the states wouldn't allow blacks to vote and the Feds stepped in and corrected it with Democrats and Republicans working together to make the " Voting Rights Act Law"

Tell me this when SS, MC and MC goes bankrupt along with Obamacare, who will support and defend our rights then?

Sheran commented on Thursday, Oct 24, 2013 at 21:25 PM

My guess Funk! He and his bride will be resting peacefully in their graves. His children and grand children will still be paying the price for "gross negligence".

sebekm commented on Friday, Oct 25, 2013 at 12:29 PM

...as will our children and grandchildren.

JimmyMack commented on Saturday, Oct 26, 2013 at 10:10 AM

Hi Funk. I am not that pessimistic regarding American's ability to face the challenges of the MC's, SS, and ACA.
We have shown thru history that we are a very resourceful people when it comes to facing crises. And yes, Sheran, I will more than likely be dead darling when all these incidents of "gross negligence" committed by MANY are...drumroll please...RESOLVED. My only regret will not being here in person to see the looks on all of the naysayers faces when all of yalls dire predictions for America do NOT prove to be true.

However, if it is determined that I have been a good boy by the man upstairs I just may be looking at yall from a different viewing area up above. Course I know some think I will be looking UP in the afterlife rather than downward.

"....when all of yalls dire predictions for America do NOT prove to be true...."

When that happens, it will not be because the Democratic party vision of American has "proven to be true."

JimmyMack commented on Saturday, Oct 26, 2013 at 18:59 PM

Hi again Sebe. Well, I don't think any ONE party or group can justifiably lay claim to America's successful emergence from all of these dire predictions being made. Never said that. It will be because some resilient men and women will rise to the leadership level that the times we are in require of them. They will come from varied political allegiances. Not one. Compromise, not intransigence, will save us.

sebekm commented on Sunday, Oct 27, 2013 at 12:15 PM

I agree. But we now have someone in the White House whose mantra is "I Will Not Negotiate." When you have that attitude constipating the system, the change has to start at the TOP.

JimmyMack commented on Sunday, Oct 27, 2013 at 15:02 PM

I think it is a debatable point as to whom it is that will or will not negotiate. A majority of Americans BELIEVE it was the Republicans who left the table and took their ball home and shut the game down. Not the President.

BTW: have you checked on ICE today? I think he has some more leads.

sebekm commented on Monday, Oct 28, 2013 at 17:22 PM

The tally of those who have had their health plan CANCELLED due to ObamaCare is now close to 1.5 MILLION - with many more to come. See;

In a related story, an organization that was specifically created to aid Alaskans in enrolling for Obamacare has "thrown in the towel" after enrolling 3 (as in THREE) people:

I guess you have to be careful not to get frostbite up in the great northwest. I'll have to remind my son, who lives in Anchorage. He says the people up there are hopping mad about the ObamaCare BROKEN PROMISES. From the news I read daily, they are not alone.
