<quoted text>Just 1 question...How many have paid?
The bills haven't even been sent out yet in some cases. Here's what Gaba found, however. First, the percentage of enrollees who have paid up (the "paid rate") looks to be hovering at 81%-85%. The figure is murky because only 10 states actually provide a figure. That includes California, which bases its figure on what it hears from the insurance companies getting the payment and which says its paid rate is "more than 85%" as of March 15.

But Gaba observes that the 15% shortfall includes a lot of people who aren't sleazing out on their bills. It includes millions of people who enrolled between mid-February and mid-March and won't start coverage until April 1; there will be more who have enrolled since March 15 who won't start coverage until May 1. Their first bill might not arrive until as long as six weeks after their enrollment, which means many haven't paid because they haven't been billed yet or have been billed but the payment isn't yet due

Statistics from Vermont lend support for Gaba's analysis. The state reported last week that nearly 92% of enrollees whose policies started in January, February and March were paid up -- but only 19% of those with coverage starting in April and 16% of those starting in May. In Vermont, then, it appears that we're talking mostly not about "deadbeats" but prudent household budgeters with maybe a few procrastinators folded in. So the next time an ACA critic warns that a lot of people haven't paid for their exchange coverage, ask if he normally pays his bills six weeks in advance.

You just don't KEEP up. Which is why you're so confused, befuddled and bewildered.

You didn't read or hear about the 6 million who lost their insurance because of Obamacare? Who were perfectly happy with the insurance they had but were told they had to be insured the way Obama wanted them to be insured? And who now have to pay more for insurance they neither need nor want?

Caused a big stir.

Why don't you quit your constant whining every freakin day.
You can't even admit that there is not typically applause after a press conference.
Pathetic.
You mistakenly believe my correcting your lies is somehow just covering for Obama. It is correcting your lies. If you don't want to read my posts, try making HONEST TRUTHFUL posts.
"He was waiting to make sure it was over."

WTH? He doesn't even know when his own press conference is over?

Once again, Obamacare is giving one-sixth of the nation's economy over to big government. The three big networks - ABC, CBS and NBC - devoted 31 minutes COMBINED to any news about this major overhaul and upheaval since January 1 - including the 38 delays, the big lie, the glitches and the mass confusion.

That breaks down to 10 minutes a month combined and about 3 minutes a month each.

And we're trying to reason with people who get their news from these three networks.
