Nate Silver predicts GOP will take back Senate by as much as 11 seats come November. Silver also predicted an Obama win at 70% 10 days before the election in 2012.

Didn't take long for some liberals to throw him under the bus.

Paul Krugman called him "Tarnished Silver".

Let's just hope Republicans have winners running this time. It's our own fault we lost the Senate in 2012 - and the election. Romney dropped the ball one too many times.

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.

More than 6 million Americans have signed up for private health insurance under the ­Affordable Care Act, the White House announced Thursday,­reflecting a surge in enrollment after months of technical problems prevented many people from picking a plan.

The administration originally expected 7 million to buy health plans during the law’s initial six-month enrollment period but revised its target to 6 million after the disastrous rollout of HealthCare.gov , the federal Web site.

The Obama administration is courting a certain demographic as the enrollment deadline looms. So who’s on the receiving end of the last-minute hustle?

President Obama shared the new total in a conference call with thousands of health-care Web navigators and volunteers who are helping enroll people through state and federal market­places, urging them to redouble their efforts over the next few days. There were more than 1.5 million visits to the Web site and more than 430,000 calls to federal call centers Wednesday, administration officials said.

“We are seeing near record numbers of consumers coming to check out their options and enroll in coverage,” Marilyn ­Tavenner, head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, said in a blog post.

The announcement comes in the final days of the health law’s maiden sign-up period, when the most controversial legislation in decades was aggressively promoted by the administration and vehemently fought by its opponents.

Much higher enrollment than the republican wanted .

Just two simple questions:
1. How many have paid?
2. How many are on Medicare?

Seems even the most confused and misguided liberals would want to know something as important as this before touting this monstrosity.

I will repeat; it's not the dogs, it's the owners. Pitbulls are actually great dogs. All dogs should be on leashes. He has a big fenced in back yard, but he likes to hang out in his garage and driveway like the trailer trash he is.
all dogs are great dogs...or could be if trained properly...

poorly trained and mistreated dogs are a danger, just as any wild animal can be...

Funny you should mention that! I am babysitting my daughters dog for the weekend; when I walked him this morning; I carried a stick just in case that nutjob across the street let his dog out. However, that dog would probably break the stick in half; maybe I'll take a golf club next time out.
