So, in the beginning last October one enrollment in 10 failed, now 1 in 4 fails. That is an improvement, but that is not a fix, and it is far from solving the Health care mess caused by Obamascam. Young people are avoiding going anywhere near this scam, and if only old sick people enroll it will be very, very, costly. They no longer refer to it as the Affordable Care Act, because the premiums are higher then before, and the deductibles are not affordable at all. This will haunt Democrats for decades.

THE EMPLOYMENT SITUATION -- NOVEMBER 2013

The unemployment rate declined from 7.3 percent to 7.0 percent in November, and total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 203,000, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Employment increased in transportation and warehousing, health care,
and manufacturing.

Federal government employment continued to decline (-7,000) in November. Over the past 12 months, federal government employment has decreased by 92,000.

The number of persons employed part time for economic reasons (sometimes referred to as involuntary part-time workers) fell by 331,000 to 7.7 million in November. These individuals were working part time because their hours had been cut back or because
they were unable to find a full-time job.

Only 10%?

Not too shabby.

For every 100 people who sign up
90 make it.

That's an A-.

With the economy picking up steam,
the stock market responding
and more and more people getting
REAL health insurance instead of the
low-priced crap they been brainwashed
into believing that's all they could
ever get, the Republicans are getting
restless. They'll have to come up with
another "scandal" and pronto.

God, what filth!

So, you signed up for health insurance on the Government site and now you are confident that you will be protected if you get sick. But, there's a 10% chance you aren't covered at all. Not only are you not insured, but you have to pay a fine, too!

Things are way past the application process at this point. The cancelled policies show more trouble than the process.

Not only must people pay and maintain an insurance policy the actual use of that policy/care is another thing.$6200 deductibles, 40% copays and non covered procedures do not make for affordable health care especially for those that can't afford an insurance policy to begin with.

How much care will be delayed or denied due to this process.

Security exposure is worse now then when this debacle started in October. You would have to be a damn fool to put any personal information on that website. It is so embarrassing the W H won't brief Congress which is supposed to have Executive branch oversight. The Democrats can pretend, and lie all they want, but the truth will come out, and they will pay at the polls next November.

Which sounds great until you factor in the millions who dropped out of the workforce during the recession and the fact that fewer than 78% of young Americans are entering the workforce at all. Why should they, they can get food stamps and mommy and daddy's health insurance until they are 26.
If I said that 10% of Americans stepped in a pile of dogsh!t today or that 90% of Americans didn't it still leaves 31 million Americas scraping it off of their shoes.

For those who aren't covered at all, for whatever reason,
there is always the emergency room. The paying people are
more than happy to pay a lot extra to cover the cost of
treating the deadbeats who won't take care of their own
problems. You?

It would be cheaper to pay for Emergency Room care for the poor, and unfortunate then it will be to pay the deductibles, and new premiums for the Bernie Madoff Healthcare Act.

Rick Santorum wrongly claimed health plans on the health care exchanges are offering more limited networks of doctors and hospitals “because the Obama bill set prices at such levels” that some doctors and hospitals “do not participate in these programs.” The Affordable Care Act does not set prices for medical care.
The private insurance companies participating in the exchanges set prices, which doctors and hospitals can balk at.

Looks like frothy rick not only sucks at making movies, he's a flop when it comes to knowing about healthcare.

ALL Dems are accomplices in the government take over of health insurance.
There should be a national ad revealing ALL the accomplices, they should ALL be completely EXPOSED. They are trying to run and hide and pull the wool over the eyes of many.

If you weren't exempt it would be smarter to pay the fine, and go to one of the Doctor's that are boycotting the Bernie Madoff healthcare Act. They are probably attached to one of the boycotting Hospitals. You would get better care then from one of the under staffed over-extended government Hospitals. There has to be a legal way around the mess the Government provides.

I told you before, they aren't listening to you or your gaggle. No matter how many signs you misspell. The insurance companies are in business to make money. The rules have changed. You are in their way.

OMG, the companies ran the Health care for decades, and did a better job then the Government will ever do. I am so glad we don't have to deal with this mess, but I feel sorry for the rest of my family that does have to figure out how to get around this mess. We got rid of Prohibition, we can get rid of the Bernie Madoff healthcare Act.
