5 million lost insurance?... which orifice did you pull that out of, moron? Must be another alias from dumb $-hit 2ndAmrightard.....
More than 1 million Americans have selected health plans through the state and federal insurance exchanges to date under the Affordable Care Act, President Obama announced at an end-of-year press conference.
“For all the challenges we’ve had and all the challenges that we’ve been working on diligently in dealing with both the ACA and the website these past couple months, more than half a million Americans have enrolled through healthcare.gov in the first three weeks of December alone,” Obama told reporters in the White House briefing room, speaking about the vastly improved federal insurance portal.
The figures reflect a significant uptick in enrollments this month, following the resolution of many technical glitches with the website in November, stepped-up outreach by health care advocates, and consumer interest in picking a plan before Monday’s deadline to get coverage effective Jan. 1.
The administration had previously reported that roughly 365,000 people selected health plans on the exchanges in October and November. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office had projected that 7 million Americans would sign up by March 31.
The devil defending 'obummer Kare', how priceless! The greatest loser of all time defending the second greatest loser!

Utter Chaos: White House Exempts Millions From Obamacare's Insurance Mandate,'Unaffordable' Exchanges

It’s hard to come up with new ways to describe the Obama administration’s improvisational approach to the Affordable Care Act’s troubled health insurance exchanges. But last night, the White House made its most consequential announcement yet. The administration will grant a “hardship exemption” from the law’s individual mandate, requiring the purchase of health insurance, to anyone who has had their prior coverage canceled and who “believes” that Obamacare’s offerings “are unaffordable.” These exemptions will substantially alter the architecture of the law’s insurance marketplaces. Insurers are at their wits’ end, trying to make sense of what to do next.

Here’s how we got to where we are. As many as six million Americans who purchase health coverage on their own have seen their plans canceled, because they don’t comply with Obamacare’s newly-imposed regulations. On the other hand, the bungled rollout of the law’s healthcare.gov website has meant that only tens of thousands of Americans have been able to enroll in new coverage under the law. This means that by January 1, 2014, less people will have health coverage under Obamacare than before.

The White House has been working hard to fix the problems with the exchanges, with modest success. Henry Chao, the deputy Chief Information Officer at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, testified to Congress in November that 30 to 40 percent of Obamacare’s exchange software had yet to be constructed. Most critically, the systems needed to pay insurers—and thereby enroll people in coverage—had not yet been built.

The administration announced in November that it would decline to enforce the provisions of Obamacare responsible for the cancellations, thereby giving states the option to allow insurers to attempt to keep the old plans operational. But the reality turned out to be more challenging; it’s not easy for insurers to turn on a dime and re-create insurance products that they had previously canceled in compliance with federal law.

In other words, for all of the seeming flurry of activity, as of yesterday the fundamental problem—people losing their old health plans, and failing to gain new ones—remained.

White House admits that Obamacare plans may be ‘unaffordable’

Last night, in a stunning reversal, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services announced that Americans who have had their plans canceled will be exempt from enrolling in the exchanges,“because some consumers were finding other coverage options to be more expensive than their cancelled plans or policies.”....

Good morning. Agree with you for the most part. However, should we continue voting for R.I.N.O.'s as well? Why don't we find REAL public servants that will uphold and defend the Constitution as they have taken a solemn oath to do?

Wouldn't it be wise for We The people to do away with the status quo? As well as the treasonous 'two-party' system?(Especially the predominately treasonous demonrat party). For it is 'party politics' is what is destroying our Constitutional Republic. Just as were we warned about by our 1st President.

It would also be wise to make immediate "recall" available in ALL 50 states. With the stipulation that the recalled senators/representatives vote,(which brought about the recall). To be stricken from the record, and force another vote.

We need to get at the root cause of the cancer that is destroying our nation. Of course destroying the treasonous demonrat party would solve a LOT of our problems. But if we are going to operate. Why not cut out the cancer entirely? Reboot the Constitution with a couple of new amendments designed to cut out any new cancerous cells IMMEDIATELY.

2andamright, I agree but , I would really like a new party like if you listen to jesse ventura.he will say both rep and dem suck.hes right.no rinos.why I say republican, is because, they want to win in 2016.besides the fact that they can win, due to obamas very bad work.they will take care to do what we want right now.once we take senate back and keep house.we will be in better shape to go for our third party.now is the time to just take back our country.we have been democrat for 8 years.so usually it should go republican, pair that with people being disgusted with obama and democrats we can soooooo win.I could be happy with this for now.rinos will behave right now.I just cant wait.I can tell you hillary, joe, these people dont have a chance.better days are coming.oh and yes on recalls.we need relief pronto.

Note to tea partiers:

Ethnic cleansing is not an American value. Neither is political purity. Neither is being ugly with others who choose not to march in step with you. America is not one folk with one leader.
