Where’s Sandra Fluke when you need her? Come on, Sandy. Round up some of those randy Georgetown coeds, get them signed up and paying for those $1000/month plans, and get busy using those “free” $9/month birth control pills. Because Barry held up his end of the deal, and now it’s time to provide the tricks he bought.

Ann Coulter:

"Despite some “navigators” having already been exposed as having arrest warrants against them, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has no plans to screen out the criminals. (But rest assured: If your identity is stolen as a result of trying to sign up for Obamacare, no one will be more upset about it than President Obama.)

Maybe it’s a blessing that the Obamacare website has crashed more often than the Soviet Union’s commercial air fleet did. In addition to convicted felons, navigators are drawn from labor unions, community organizers, former ACORN staffers and front-groups for the Democratic National Committee.

Call right up and give all your private financial and medical information to those guys! What could go wrong? (Before Obamacare was even online, Minnesota’s health exchange emailed the Social Security numbers and other identifying information for about 2,400 Americans to a man applying to be a “navigator.”)

Yeah 400,000 signed up for Medicare because it is FREE.

But when the deadbeats find out Obamascare cost money, they bail out from the website.

They can 10,000,000 visit the website but less than 100,000 will actually PAY MONEY for a plan.

Biggest Clust&&&k in the history of the country.

More from the NY Times article,

"One point of contention is around the way the Obama administration defines who, precisely, is enrolled.

The administration counts new enrollees as those who have “selected a marketplace plan.” They are people like Hung Trang, a 60-year-old nail salon owner in Tampa, Fla., who has been trying for weeks to sign up for coverage. With some help from a counselor, called a “navigator,” he has picked a plan, but has not yet committed to buy it.

The health insurance industry, though, says people like Mr. Trang do not count until they have agreed to pay."

If only Amazon could claim a sale for every cart addition!

On the other hand over 400,000 have signed up for Medicaid. So good for those folks!

From the NY Times, "It said 76,391 enrolled through state marketplaces, some of which have technical problems of their own, while 26,794 signed up through the federal exchange."

So more people lost their plans in Tennessee today (66,000) than have signed up on the Federal exchange in the first month.

I don't think they're doing it right!!

You critics of the divided GOP ain't seen nothin yet. Democrats will say anything to win in 2014, and Billary will say anything to get his turn at first lady status. Libs will vote for any name with a D, but it will be fun watching them spin this Democrat chaos.

This may be preferable to an idea be floated out there to "subsidize" Obamacare polices for the millions who have not been able to keep the policies they's had.

More from Feintstein, "“Since the beginning of September, I have received 30,842 calls, emails and letters from Californians, many of whom are very distressed by cancellations of their insurance policies and who are facing increased out-of-pocket costs.

“For example, a father from Rancho Mirage called and said: ‘I work three jobs to pay the bills for my wife and daughter. I got a letter that my plan is going from $420 to $943. I went to HealthCare.Gov, then Covered California. I researched my premiums. A policy almost identical to my old one is being offered for $863. I’m now being forced to come up with over $400 a month with 30 days’ notice. Let me spell it out: I do not have the income to afford this.’"

Although she describes a "simple fix" of letting insurance companies still offer the now cancelled polices, imagine the 100's of thousand of man hours required to administer this "fix".

It's not just Bill Clinton! From SF Gate, "Sen. Dianne Feinstein on Tuesday joined the ranks of worried Democrats demanding that President Obama allow people to keep their current insurance policies. Feinstein’s move is bad news for an administration desperate for good news following the roll-out debacle of the Affordable Care Act’s health insurance exchange on Oct. 1, which has been plagued by technical problems."
