Obamacare Numbers Just as Shameful as Ever

Across the country 4,000,000 and counting people have lost their insurance, but 106,000 have signed up for Obamacare. Via NBC News:

Only 26,000 people managed to buy health insurance onHealthCare.gov in October, the first month the website was open, the Health and Human Services Department said Wednesday.

But more than 106,000 have made it through the process on both the state and federal websites, and most just have a few more steps to make the final purchase, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius says. And as many as half a million look like they will have either private health insurance or new Medicaid coverage in 2014, HHS says in itsfirst report on enrollment at HealthCare.gov.

Nearly 27 million people have visited the federal and state websites — a number that suggests there’s tremendous interest in getting health insurance. More than 47 million U.S. adults now go without health insurance, more than 15 percent of the population.

The federal government has been playing down expectations for how many people will have signed up so far, but the long-awaited figures released Wednesday show that 26,794 people bought health insurance on the federal website, covering 36 states. Another 79,391 bought policies on state-run websites.

Almost as bad as the Obamacare flaw that allows anyone in the world to sign up at Healthcare.gov
