    Yeah sure. There must be hundreds of sticky notes marking the pages in Joseph Goebbles play book in the West Wing by now.

    This forbes article does a pretty good job explaining it. Essentially, you have to pay at least one month of premiums in order to be officially "enrolled" in health insurance. Sign ups are people who have signed up for insurance but haven't paid for it yet.
    When it comes to stuff life this, Forbes is no better than Fox News. It's a business website owned and run by businesses. I don't expect such a website to say good things about Obamacare.

    How much did your GOP impede this?
    And where did the 7.5 number come from--first I've seen it ?

    Did we just change the entire system for $6 million people, most of which are old people that already had insurance but had to sign up for this to continue treatment they were receiving?
    You think people on Medicare had to sign up for Medicare?

    If the signup is 6 million, and the percentage is 35%, that is 2 + million paying customers, against the 7 million needed to make it work. Why is that going to be bad for the Republicans?

    Have they managed to at least match for sign ups the number of people that were forced out of their insurance plans?

    And does 'signed up' = 'paid up'?

    6 million...'signed up'...for the program that so many democrats and liberals touted as the greatest thing since sliced bread. And they are trumpeting that as a 'success'.

    It wont be.

    If the White House could confirm that 6 Million or even 4 Million paid, dont you think they would ? And shove it in the Republicans face ?

    MSNBC would be running a nonstop "mission accomplished " special.

    If even a Substantial number of people paid up, dont you think Democrats in a election year would be moving TOWARDS the President and Obama care instead of avoiding it like the plague ?

    Its the typical dishonest BS from Obama and his followers.

    They think every American is an idiot, and we should all be celebrating this great achievment.

    They know EXACTLY how many people have paid, their constant ambiguity is proof of that.

    And its not good news.

    Funny, no mention of this on Fox? Shocking I tell you. Shocking.
    Cause it's bull****.
