Did Sibelius lie again. She just testified yesterday that the number was 365K as of the end of November. My goodness, only 4.6 million to go just to make up those who have been canceled. LOL!
Funny how she didn't (Wouldn't) divulge demographic information. As in the young needed to float this scam just are not playing along!
Funny! Today the HHS also released updated “enrollment” figures for Obamacare. According to the agency 364,682 people have “selected a plan” – the equivalent of putting an item in your online shopping cart and leaving it there. But, then again I guess the AP knows more.
Deja vu all over again....
D for Debacle

Today is the last day to sign up for Medicare Part D, the prescription drug benefit. It appears that millions of Americans, confused by the array of competing plans or simply unaware of the cutoff date, will miss the deadline. This will leave them without drug coverage for the rest of the year, and subject to financial penalties for the rest of their lives.
President Bush refuses to extend the sign-up period. "Deadlines," he said last week, "help people understand there's finality, and people need to get after it, you know?" His real objection to extending the deadline is probably that this would be an implicit admission that his administration botched the program's start-up. And Mr. Bush never, ever admits mistakes.
But Part D's bad start isn't just another illustration of the administration's trademark incompetence. It's also an object lesson in what happens when the government is run by people who aren't interested in the business of governing.
Before we get there, let's talk for a moment about the problems older Americans have encountered over the past few months.
Even Mr. Bush has acknowledged that signing up for the program is a confusing process. But, he says, "there is plenty of help for you." Yeah, right.
There's a number that people needing help with Part D can call. But when the program first went into effect, there were only 300 customer service representatives standing by. (Remember, there are 43 million....
1 person has signed up for every 5 who had their policies canceled. You guys really did set the bar high on this one.
You should have elected Romney. He would have had Obomboscare running like a well oiled machine.
O can't even run a lemonade stand.
