The Obama administration is gushing that Obamacare will change the lives of three uninsured women – but none of the women have actually enrolled in the program.

Twitchy noted that the HHS blog “offers the stories of three women as if they’re Obamacare ‘success stories.’”

However, a close reading of their statements reveals Caroline, Kate and Elizabeth say they are “looking to buy,”“still shopping” and “still trying to decide.”

The HHS blog says Caroline, a 27-year-old substitute teacher and part-time guidance counselor in Washington, D.C., who has been uninsured since 2009, wants to “get insurance on the Marketplace” so she can avoid expensive emergency hospital bills.

According to HHS, Kate, a 30-year-old consultant for a non-governmental organization said she is “overwhelmed” by her options on the Marketplace and is “still shopping to make sure I make the right decision.”

Elizabeth, 29, who recently finished a graduate program in social media, tells HHS,“I’m still trying to decide what plan is right for me …”

But Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius tweeted Monday,“With better coverage at a better price Kate & Caroline are enrolling in the Health Insurance Marketplace.”

How can the Democrats mandate you buy Insurance, then make it impossible for you to sign up for it? Only the dim-witted Democrats could come up with something as ludicrous as Obamacare, and all it's problems.

Less then 1% of those applying for Obamacare have successfully completed the application. It is a total mess. Obama should be so proud it is one of his best works. All the times they pretended President Bush was not smart, they were preparing us for the real Dumbshit President, Barack Hussein Obama. He doesn't have 2 working brain cells
'1984' was a warning not an instruction manual. Impeach the Kenyan-born Antichrist!

I'm just curious to know if you guys know what an IP address is? You computer on the Internet has an address. You can obtain that address and all of the information about who your carrier is, your home address, your name looked up easily after getting someones IP address. So if you guys are afraid of entering a zip code - Then get off the internet and wifi.
Just saying
Proxy server, they need the provider to give additional information and there was no field or question to enter a zip code. A lot of information can be derived but why give it to someone on a silver platter.

One thought
Given the obvious technical incompetence in the website design-is the information being shared really secure--and what damage could occur if a criminal got a hold of that information.
Do you really trust a government that repaetedly lies to you?

Do you really think that you're any different?
With three years to get this ready, the start up was a failure, and it wasn't due to the rush to sign up. There are some major glitches, and more problems have been discovered as they've tried to fix the glitches.
But you can't even admit that, perhaps because you are the opposite extreme...you couldn't say a negative thing if your hair was on fire.
That's two horns on the same goat and you are no different than those you mock.
Few people say the Obama Administration, any more than they say the Bush Administration or the Clinton Administration. They just say Obama, Bush or Clinton.
The start up wasn't a "failure" unless you're a Rightedia dupe...glitches are being worked out...reTHUGlicans are merely desperate with fear that Obama will win and people will LIKE the program - as they did in Massachusetts, where "Mittens" Romney signed it.

Few people are as ignorant as you. Most have simply shot themselves.

This way thy have no clue. It won't be ready by December 1st, 2013. It won't be ready by December 1st, 2016.

Exactly - it takes time to take a single state program and expand it to the national level. Had the Tea-thuglicans not shut down the federal gov't for no good reason - not to mention that in some GOP-controlled states there has been active sabotage of the ACA going on since it became law - the launch would not have had so many problems.

Not to worry - even IF there are still problems by 2016 - President Hillary - and First Dude Bill Clinton will get in on track.

Romney Care was just amended last year six years after it was enacted to allow nurse practitioners and physicians assistants to act as primary care due to doctor shortages. The same bill for one state added 150 million for other things including electronic record keeping. Mass is also a gentrified state with some of the highest state taxes in the country. And depending on the numbers you read there is still 4-12% of the residents without health insurance.

There are reasons, especially now that Hillary Clinton is not boasting she proposed Hillary Health decades ago.

I saw the clip where the fux puppet was lying through his teeth about those couples. Turns out they would all save money going through an exchange.

When will she-man hannity finally undergo that waterboarding that was promised, so many years ago?
So sad to see her lose the last of her cred.

Ladies and gentlemen, ObamaCare is still screwed up.

Get a load of this melodramatic lead:“A broken website imperils the largest expansion of the American safety net since the Great Society.

“More than two weeks into the disastrous rollout of HealthCare.gov , the website created by President Barack Obama's health care reform law still isn't working right….But the administration won't disclose exactly what's wrong with the health insurance exchange website, or when consumers can expect to see the promise of convenient, one-stop shopping for health benefits and financial assistance fulfilled.”

That’s not from some right-wing website. It’s the Huffington Post, whose home page is usually plastered with pro-administration headlines.

I think we have to stop using the word “glitches” to describe what’s going on. This is far more serious than too many people at the outset crashing the site.

This is a meltdown of the first order that really does threaten the president’s signature priority. If the problems are ironed out and millions sign up for the federal exchanges, this period will just be an unpleasant interlude. But at this point, administration officials don’t seem to have a handle on the magnitude of the debacle.
