Last week some suggested the Obama White House was unwilling to state how many people actually enrolled in Obamacare following the online launch of the program. This week, the Wall Street Journal explains a very possible reason as to why – the trillions dollar program has only attracted “hundreds” to sign up so far.

Software, Design Defects Cripple Health-Care Website
About 30 million uninsured people live in the states the federal marketplace will serve, including Texas and Florida.
So far, Web-traffic problems are allowing only a small trickle of buyers, said John Gorman, chief executive of Gorman Health Group, an insurance-industry consulting firm with clients selling policies on the exchanges.
Large insurers have seen enrollment figures totaling in the hundreds each, said Sumit Nijhawan, chief executive of Infogix Inc., a data-integrity firm that works with such insurers as WellPoint Inc., Aetna Inc. and Cigna Corp.
So far, many tens of thousands of people had started the application process but the number of those who were able to create accounts and shop for coverage is likely in the low thousands, according to people with knowledge of the situation and estimates by insurance-industry advisers.
The administration has declined to say the total number of enrollees. LINK
In addition to the absurdly low numbers outlined in the Wall Street Journal report, the State of California, which initially boasted of a five million hits onto the state Obamacare website, has now revised that number downward to a far more modest 645,000. It should be noted that number reflects people looking into the website out of curiosity or research, and not the number of people actually interested in signing up for Obamacare – that number is likely far lower.
And herein we find the miscalculation by the Obama administration when they repeated over and over again the “health care crisis” in America. There NEVER WAS A HEALTHCARE CRISIS. Union workers already have excellent coverage and thus, no interest in Obamacare. Undocumented workers, whose numbers WERE being counted in the oft repeated “thirty million uninsured” figure, don’t wish to log into a government website to secure healthcare that is supposed to be given only to American citizens. Then there are the young, who also have had little concern toward obtaining healthcare. Millions more have been added to Social Security and Medicare already under Barack Obama – so again, have no need to look into Obamacare.
Add to this the fact that the healthcare law already protects preconditions, and allows children to remain on their parents plans well into their twenty’s, and that “thirty million” number dwindles even further.
Thus, the entire fabricated “healthcare crisis” is being revealed for the false premise it has always been. That is why enrollment numbers are so low – the actual interest in obtaining healthcare coverage is nowhere near crisis level in America, despite the repeated lies and deceptions by the Obama administration and its Mainstream Media supporters.
That’s ok though, it’s just more trillions of dollars we don’t have that we didn’t need to spend. Such is the norm in this Age of Obama… -UM
IN A WORLD GONE HORRIBLY WRONG, AMERICA NEEDS A NEW HERO.
“An inside look at what this government does in secrecy is scary, most people ignore the realities of actions depicted in this book by our foreign policies…”
“Mac Walker–my favorite “character”
“Mac Walker is a hero whom you want to get to know. Would love to meet Mac and friends. Hope “they” will be around for a long time. Unfortunately, they get sent to Benghazi, where you know circumstances will not be in theirfavor. Makes you root for the good guys and look forward to the next book.”
