    Correct. I'm saying those #'s, from state exchanges (not the federal one) are people who have actually enrolled in a health plan.



    I think that is likely. But we need paying customers to keep this thing fiscally solvent.
    Yes, we do but I don't think it's reasonable to assume the #'s in the first months will be the same as the #'s in the later months.

    No, its an insurance policy. One needs to understand its particulars. I do understand that it will cost me $1200 a month less.

    Yes, I miss that system, and I'm fortunate to be able to afford it. This is KILLING a lot of middle-class and poor Americans right now, who aren't taking their kids to the doctor because they don't have the $100.

    Not to mention, overall rates are skyrocketing, and people can't see their doctors in many cases.

    Yeah, this is just great.
    Of course, the one thing that is mandated under the new program is that preventive visits (annual check-ups and screenings) are free... without any co-pays.

    That is not the only coverage mandated...

    Only 1% of the needed goal of sign ups have so far occurred...And the numbers from the state exchanges are 80% to 90% Medicaid. That's a different program.

    Yes, we do but I don't think it's reasonable to assume the #'s in the first months will be the same as the #'s in the later months.
    The favorite go to for comparison is Medicare Part D, however by this point in Med part d had 10% signed up, whereas this failure only has 1% so far...If they don't get their target number this isn't going to work....

    I suggest you go to the horse races and see how many of the winning horses were in the lead out of the gate.

    You mean you don't believe it...and you shouldn't....

    "(CBS News) CBS News has uncovered a serious pricing problem with HealthCare.gov. It stems from the Obama administration's efforts to improve its health care website. A new online feature can dramatically underestimate the cost of insurance.

    The administration announced it would provide a new "shop and browse" feature Sunday, but it's not giving consumers the real picture. In some cases, people could end up paying double of what they see on the website, CBS News' Jan Crawford reported Wednesday on "CBS This Morning."

    HealthCare.gov pricing feature can be off the mark - CBS News

    We'll see....Believe it or not, at this point I actually hope it doesn't fail, only because the damage to the insurance markets has been done, and that may be worse than if it works.

    I don't believe that. Your actions, as well as those of many on the right, strongly indicate that you are hoping for failure, and all the wailing and gnashing of teeth over people's having the policies changed is just for effect.

    To see what? That early speed horses win at a rate much higher than closers?

    His point is valid.
