Revealed: Number of Persons Enrolled In Obamacare on First Day? Six
— Ace

Frankly, I'm surprised it's not zero.

And I still expect it to have actually been zero -- because I'm sure that there were glitches on the back end, actually communicating with insurers.

But here is why our Secretive, Lying Nixonian President denied the American public information they have a right to -- because it exposed him as the incompetent he is, of course.

For 31 days now, the Obama administration has been telling us that Americans by the millions are visiting the new health insurance website, despite all its problems.

But no one in the administration has been willing to tell us how many policies have been purchased, and this may be the reason: CBS News has learned the number is very small.

Early enrollment figures are contained in notes from twice-a-day "war room" meetings convened within the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services after the website failed on Oct. 1. They were turned over in response to a document request from the House Oversight Committee.

The website launched on a Tuesday. Publicly, the government said there were 4.7 million unique visits in the first 24 hours. But at a meeting Wednesday morning, the war room notes say "six enrollments have occurred so far."

The next day was a huge day for them -- they got less than 250 enrollments.

In order to meet their goals, they have to enroll 39,000 people per day up to March 1st.


A lie? How dare you suggest such a thing.

Thanks to @johnekdahl.

20 Good work! I wonder if we are missing some opportunities here though. 1. If the website is broken, just go somewhere else! If google is down, guess I'll actually use Bing. Oh, we don't have ghat option? This is why government monopolies are not as good as the free, distributed market. This is why we support freedom. But I'm sure it'll be fine when there are fewer plans. 2. If you like your plan you can keep it. Sure, a lie, what are they saying now? The plans lost are sub-par? Well, who get's to make that call, jerk? I thought if I liked it I'd keep it? No, now somebody else gets to decide for you. Freedom of choice? Who needs it! This should work fine when you're trying to get that heart operation and Obama thinks a pill is better. This situation illustrates why the basic principles we hold are better than the alternative. Economic Freedom trumps government regulation. Freedom of choice is better than freedom to fall in line.

Could we be living through a tipping point here? Because, as we know, there is a lot more crud to dump on Barry and the Donks that's been simmering into a nice, hot fetid gruel of fail. And once the press figures out it's them or their man-crush, well, then, 'Fetch-a the mush!'

Especially now, since losing your press job to cutbacks due to nobody watching rehashed administration propaganda masked as 'news' means you lose your gold-plated insurance and get dumped into.........ObamaCare! EEEEEEEEEEEKKKKKKKK!

43 I know Slow Joe Biden and his Boss aren't tech geeks, but can these two shut up about comparisons between Amazon.com or other successful eCommerce sites and Healthcare.gov? Obamacare/Healthcare.gov attempted to reshape 20% of the U.S. economy in under 3 years. Amazon.com took 19 years to get to a position of being able to offer goods and services equaling 0.4% of the entire U.S. economy. You don't have to be a tech nerd to know that attempting to build the world's largest e-commerce portal linking together numerous databases across 50 states and various insurance companies would be complicated and likely take a little longer than 3 years to develop. I'm sure when Amazon or anyone else acquires a company the size of the healthcare market of Kansas it takes them longer than a year or 2 to get them up and operating on the same eCommerce platform / ERP system of the parent company. How the shit did these clowns think they were going to build this platform for all 50 states from scratch in less than 3 years.

57 I'm curious (seriously because I really don't know) how many private contractors were responsible for actually creating the portals supporting the ACA. Not defending anyone, but I am attempting to put the responsibility where is should lie. Key word: attempting. Should it be with these contractors? With the procurement folks? The managers overseeing those contractors? Or is the problem larger? During the Gulf War, our troops were getting their asses kicked because our technology in the early days wasn't up to protecting them from unconventional combat methods. Clearly contractors were failing the troops (the government doesn't make it's own battle gear). Of course, those in command didn't step down. They did however, receive the brunt of criticism. And so it goes. It's satisfying to lambast the opposition. But what takes real courage is to look in the mirror, own what we see, then do something about the real problem: the system that requires goofy fixes such as the ACA. Fixes even the authors agree won't solve the healthcare problem in the long run.

Okay, how much will that cost?
We won't know until we take it apart.
How about a ballpark estimate?
We can't give you that until we take it apart.

Having thought deeply upon the issue - I asked my liberal friend who went on and on about insurance - why didn't they explore treating the uninsured somewhat like the "high risk motorist" pool.   

 

Let people shop competitivelty for their insurance, and the high risk types (pre-existing conditions, no insurance, et cetera) go into a plan that's specific to them.   Should their circumstance change, they could opt-out of the high-risk pool and buy their own, presumably better, plan.

The Dems are the ones that wrote the law, wrote the 10k pages of rules and regs, hired the contractors, gave them the specs, and paid the bills.

103 "I once took my car to an AAMCO shop because my tranny was acting up (don't they all?), since they offer free inspections."

AAMCO = All Automatics Must Come Out.

You could probably have parked in their lot to walk to the pizza parlor next door and come back to find them shaking their heads dolefully and recommending a rebuild.

Secret to long life of a transmission of any sort? Change the fluid. Use the correct fluid. Then check it in between changes to make sure it's not getting low. (External trans filters and trans coolers are a bonus.)

Of course, the manufacturers are trying their best to thwart this, with sealed transmissions that have no dipsticks and are filled with "lifetime" fluid.

If buying a car with such a transmission, ask them to put it in writing what "lifetime" means. Your lifetime? That of the car? Or if it's the life of the transmission, ask them to specify in years and/or miles what that life will be. Expect them to get VERY nervous over this matter.

I work in government contracting and a $640m no-bid award like that, to a foreign company, with close ties to the First Lady and ValJar (her daughter and son in law-or son and daughter in law, I forget, also work there) stinks to high heaven. Especially one that failed so spectacularly on similar projects in Canada. No bid! What, like the US has no good high-tech companies? We invented them for crying out loud.

114 Just like the Canadian Long Gun Registry.  The supporters kept trotting out how many times it was accessed each day while omitting how many hits it got due to routine automatic queries, not because of manual queries the RCMP did on weapons.  If that registry had worked as advertised, it would not have allowed one long gun to be stolen and re-registered six times before it was found to be stolen when one such manual query was done on the weapon.

162 sealed transmissions that have no dipsticks and are filled with "lifetime" fluid.

What horseshit.  After a couple thousand miles the fluid will come out of a new car looking like translucent metallic paint as parts break in.  This is true on automatics or standards.

If you want a trans to have a long trouble free life on a new car, change fluid/filter a few times in the first 5,000 miles.

Seems extreme, but its the only way to get all that microscopic metallic shit out.  Left in, it accelerates bearing/seal wear

181 There is actually a Dick Hair that lives in my neighborhood.

I don't know why every Richard on the planet hasn't stopped calling themselves "Dick" yet. The Straight Dope tells me that dick = penis came about in the 1890s. WTH Dicks? Do you think the slang will go away sometime soon? Its been over 120 years now.

182 Isn't anyone in DC at all curious where the hell all of this money is going Posted by: goldiocks at October 31, 2013 07:37 PM (FIMVX) Nope. We're not curious about that at all. In fact, the only thing we'd be less curious about is if any of it going to our personal 503(c)3 accounts, family members, Congressional retreat funds, or anywhere else that can be connected to us. Now stop asking distracting questions so we can focus on fixing this.

207 In happy time news: 

Hillary Clinton, in addition to President Barack Obama, is facing declining approval numbers, a poll shows.

Clinton has lost a majority of public approval dropping to 46 percent approval from 56 percent in April, according to the NBC News/Wall Street Journal survey released Wednesday. Thirty-three percent have a negative view of the former secretary of state.

The poll also highlights that Clinton is losing support among younger voters, independents and even within her own party. She dropped 15 percentage points since April

247 We need to stop harping on this issue of Obamacare you guys. A recent poll of swing independent tranvestites at a San Francisco farmer's market showed that many like that the law now requires free hemp birth control bills, and all this talk of repeal is just another example of yet more natural conservative voters we're going to lose because we were mean to our extremely popular President Obama. We should stay quiet about Obamacare because the polls are misleading - it's actually extremely popular Serious You Guys.

I wasn't calling Amazon/Microsoft or any other private sector entity incompetent. I was highlighting the arrogance and ignorance of the current administration for their belief that they could successfully implement such a massive undertaking in such a short period of time. Total M&A integration can be a lengthy process - regardless of competence. Doing something quickly does not mean doing something competently - case in point Healthcare.gov.
