Has anyone come across any more information then what I have found and if so can you please post a link
Im sure if it was a large enrollment the press would be trumpeting it all over the place but as I suspect the enrollment sucks so the reason for the silence

There have been millions of hits on the exchange websites. I don't think there are numbers for how many have enrolled yet. NY had 2.5 million visitors to their exchange site and California was getting 16,000 hits a second. There are 48 million uninsured Americans so it's not hard to believe there will be millions eventually insured through the exchanges.

The dregs can't enroll, if the websites don't work.

considering it's only day two of the enrollment period and we have 6 months until it is over, i think it is a bit early to making judgements on the success or faliure of the exchanges.

where they unique hits or where the just a few thousand getting booted off of the site and relogging in over and over again?

and if it was any where close to any large numbers of enrollment why haven't the lap dog press plaster it all over the place

and please I've asked for links I don't trust any info given on this or any forum with out a source to back claims up

I doesn't mention if it's unique hits...there's probably a lot of people just checking the site out.

i highly doubt it because conservatives have done obamacare by spreading the word around about it.

which is why so many people are looing up the exchanges.

n Illinois, the exchange site had 70,000 visits from 65,000 people, with 1,100 applications submitted. Kentucky had nearly 78,000 unique visitors, who started nearly 4,700 applications and completed more than 2,900. Oregon’s exchange had 75,000 visitors, but with the state still working out some problems, it has postponed the ability to apply for coverage.

About 55,000 people went to Colorado’s exchange site, and 1,450 created accounts to allow them to start shopping for plans. Idaho’s exchange had more than 8,000 visitors, but it was not clear whether any of them were able to apply, because the applications were routed through the federal system.

I haven't, but then, I don't have to.

Since my high risk pool is shutting down I'm investigating my options. I looks like my rates are going down though

that is a far cry from the million that some of you liberals have claimed and those are just quotes of people setting up accounts not purchase, because you have to set up an account to look at the prices im questioning enrollment

And if republicans are able to convince 60% of the public not to like Obama care why couldn't they convince that many to vote for Romney you premise is far from being in the realm of reality

better check the deductible and co-pay. ACA is using an old marketing trick they give you a low ball quote on the monthly premium but once you read the fine print you realize it not a good deal

I've been a candidate for a heart transplant. The options look much better than what there was before with the Texas High Risk pool

I think millions are registering or trying to register, but that's not "signing up." They have to review the plans, research, think about it, and then sign up. This takes a while.

I haven't heard a million have signed up. Only one state has released figures, I heard on the news....Virginia, I think it is (a Democratic governor). About 8,000, I think? Don't look for much information from the Republican governors like Perry, who are Tea Partiers or similar. We have seen what they are all about (Cruz), which is to try to make it fail and show it is failing, whether true or not. Perry has instituted strict requirements for navigators to help people sign up....more than double the requirements the federal govt and most other states have. It doesn't take a brain surgeon to figure out that the purpose of that is to prevent people from becoming navigators because of the prohibitive requirements. Which is what is happening, I believe.

This is an absolutely ridiculous thread. It's day two of the exchanges, a lot of Republican-led states have intentionally dragged their feet setting them up, and thjghgsafhgUF is blasting the system for not having everyone signed up. What a joke.

Yes, but a lot of you radically radical liberals were basically falling over yourselves waiting for this day to come.

C'mon y'all! Mommy is waiting for you to move in! Mommy is finally here to wipe your noses and to tuck you in at night. What are you waiting for? Less than 1% of you simpletons have signed up. What's it gonna take? Maybe bribing you with a FREE OBAMAPHONE? You don't want to make Mommy mad now, do you? Be a good little servant, and go sign up today!

Not sure where you got the idea I was a "radical liberal," but OK. I'll indulge your idiocy for a minute or two.

Typical conservative claptrap.


For starters, if you're trying to bring the thunder, do better than the Daily Mail. Secondly, it's the FIRST DAY, YOU ASSHAT. You reasonably expect every single person to log on the first day for something in a six-month window? This is a ridiculous grasp at straws if I've ever seen one.

What's it gonna take? Maybe bribing you with a FREE OBAMAPHONE? You don't want to make Mommy mad now, do you?

Smartphones are cheap. Dirt cheap. And they're becoming almost a necessity in daily life. But, I forgot, your entire worldview is "f*** the poors."

Your prototypical right-wing libertarian condescension is showing up like a bad mole.

Be a good little servant, and go sign up today!

Yes, getting access to health insurance is "being a servant."

The right-wing in this country is a steaming heap of moronic jackasses.
