Seems like millions of others have signed up too.
even if you get 100 million to sign up,(50 million being the uninsured), do you truly think obamacare will survive?

so far, you liberals are telling us you have 20 million signed up. my guess is - they are the uninsured. the ones who want the rich folks to support them.

am I the only one who sees something wrong with this scenario?

tell me, liberals, if you don't have enough people funding the program, will it succeed?

How recent was that poll, that's the question.

Latest poll released shows the ACA now has more positive than negative approvals;

"Overall, 49 percent support and 48 percent oppose the health-care law in the new poll, hardly changed from January (46-49 support-oppose) but clearly better than November, when 40 percent expressed support and 57 percent were opposed. The growth in support has been concentrated among those who "somewhat" support the law, with strong opponents still outnumbering strong supporters by a 36 to 25 percent margin."

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-fix/w...

"A new Washington Post-ABC News poll reports that 49 percent of Americans support the Affordable Care Act while 48 percent oppose the new health care law."

The tides are shifting - because people are seeing the facts, not the rhetoric you and your ilk have been espousing for far too long.

I guess you didn't notice the Government site for the Healthcare Scam is down again today. Those people cannot do anything right. It sure is fun to watch. So let's say they signed up 5 million premium paying people by April 15th, what about the other 325,000,000, and the uncounted illegal aliens? Where do they go to the Doctors? The Hospitals? What if there is a flu outbreak? Or something as over powering to the Healthcare system? Do just the rich get seen by doctors? How about registered Democrats? In a crisis we don't need voters anyway. This whole thing seems to be put together by drunks, and pot heads. That is really not funny.
You should do some research on what it DID actually do. illegal aliens do not qualify for ACA.

Obamacare explicitly denies insurance coverage to illegal immigrants in Section 1312 (f)(3):
Access limited to lawful residents. If an individual is not, or is not reasonably expected to be for the entire period for which enrollment is sought, a citizen or national of the United States or an alien lawfully present in the United States, the individual shall not be treated as a qualified individual and may not be covered under a qualified health plan in the individual market that is offered through an Exchange.

The truth is you were already paying for some illegal immigrants' care long before Obamacare. It's because of the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA), signed into law by Reagan in 1986.
More than 100,000 people a year, mostly illegal immigrants, receive "emergency Medicaid" in the 7 states with most immigrants, according to a Kaiser Institute study.
That 100,000 are people with no insurance who go to the emergency room for treatment, and don't meet the immigration requirements for regular Medicaid. "Emergency Medicaid" also applies to legal immigrants who've had lawful status for less than 5 years. The cost to the taxpayer is around $2 billion a year, or 1% of the Medicaid budget.

You are one of few here who actually KNOW the truth.

The remainder of these idiots here parrot crap from World Nut Daily, the Drudge Report, and Faux News.

Lies.

The Obama administration has been helping to facilitate a series of events nationwide at Mexican Consulate offices to enroll people in Obamacare – and a key activist says the efforts are “our responsibility” regardless of citizenship.

“Whether they’re Mexican nationals or whether they’re United States citizens or whether they’re in transition-- and if they’re there it is our responsibility within all of America to educate on the Affordable Care Act,” Enroll America Field Organizer Jose Medrano said on Wednesday.

Health Care insurance navigator groups hosted an Obamacare enrollment fair on Tuesday in the Mexican Consulate’s Brownsville office, The Rio Grande Guardian reported last Friday, where Mexican nationals among others were counseled about enrolling in the ACA.

“The Mexican consulate is a very reliable source of information to the Latino community. And therefore when they host their events, yesterday being the health fair, there are several hundred people that show up,” Medrano said.
Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), undocumented immigrants aren't supposed to be receiving government-run health benefits or subsidized coverage. However, President Barack Obama told Latinos in early March that the Healthcare.gov website would not be used to find out about an individual’s immigration status.

“None of the information that is provided in order for you to obtain health insurance is in any way transferred to immigration services,” he said.

Again using Briebart.com as a source you putz?

'The relevant section of the law, also known as Obamacare, is Section 1312 (f)(3), which reads:

"Access limited to lawful residents. If an individual is not, or is not reasonably expected to be for the entire period for which enrollment is sought, a citizen or national of the United States or an alien lawfully present in the United States, the individual shall not be treated as a qualified individual and may not be covered under a qualified health plan in the individual market that is offered through an Exchange.

Because illegal immigrants are not subject to the individual mandate, they are not be penalized for being uninsured. Illegal immigrants can still get emergency medical care under federal law.

According to the Congressional Research Service: "Unauthorized (illegal) immigrants are expressly exempted from the mandate to have health insurance and, as a result, cannot be penalized for noncompliance."

http://uspolitics.about.com/od/healthcare/a/A...

Now moron, it is not unreasonable to use any consulate to educate, as the link you provided expressly states, what is and is not covered under the ACA, especially when states such as Texas has opted out, refused Medicaid expansion, and will not assist those who may in fact be eligible.

In Florida, Health Care Navigators are set up in many Wal Marts throughout the state. why? Because the Governor refused to allow state office building to be used for enrollment.

Allowing legal Mexican's access to knowledge is now a crime?

You really are such a fool.
