    I see no link, and I also see you are ignoring new medicaid/chips enrollment.

    Also, I see no link to the "CBO enrollment" numbers.

    Oh yes of-course it is

    Ignore the record low labor participation rate and the fact that allot of new jobs are part time, ignore the fact that median income levels have been flat for 6 years and still haven't returned to 2007 levels, ignore the huge drop in new home purchaes, the increase in poverty rates and the shrinking Middle class and yes, I guess you could call that a " rebound ".

    If its such a " strong recovery then why are interest rates STILL so low ?

    Sorry, I'm not gullible enough to believe we're in the midst of a recovery.

    Ill leave that kind of blind allegiance to the Obama supporters.

    According to Politico [$], the Obama administration will stop issuing monthly reports on enrollment in ObamaCare’s health insurance Exchanges. “Without regular reports,” Politico health care reporter Kyle Cheney writes, “it will be more difficult to gauge the trajectory of enrollment during critical months leading up to the 2014 elections. It’s also unclear as of now whether monthly reports will resume during the next enrollment period, which begins in November.” Charles Gaba of ACASignUps.net calls the decision “a bad move” and “a huge mistake”:

    “I don’t know if this only means that they’re mothballing the reports from now through November (when the 2nd open enrollment period starts up again), which would be bad enough, or if they mean permanently (which would be far worse)…HHS has lost their mind and will deserve every bit of criticism that they receive over it.....snip~

    I'm not your research assistant. I will, however, indulge you with a report from a large media outlet called CBS. You can go from there.

    Specifically, HHS Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell said she projects around 9.1 million people will be enrolled in plans sold through the ACA's exchanges by the end of 2015 (Morgan, Reuters, 11/10).
    Why the HHS Projection Is Lower Than CBO's
    According to the Times, the administration's enrollment estimate could be part of federal officials' attempts to curb expectations about enrollment. Further, officials could recognize it might be difficult to enroll many individuals who remain uninsured while also working to re-enroll those who purchased ACA coverage last year (New York Times, 11/10).

    HHS' 2015 ACA Enrollment Estimate Lower Than CBO's Projection - California Healthline
    Fascinating. But not what we were discussing. You missed this in the article I was nice enough to post for you:

    There are currently 7.1 million Americans enrolled in private health plans through the new state-based marketplaces, and HHS expects about 83 percent of those people to re-enroll when open enrollment begins this Saturday. The rest of the 9.1 million enrollees would be new customers.

    and then this:

    However, she pointed out that should enrollment reach 9.9 million, that would be a 28 percent increase in the marketplace.

    Now stop boring me with your posts begging for me to educate you.

    There are plenty more like him and it's just not understandable. Pride and anger don't appear to be factors. It's just business as usual.

    So apparently blind allegiance and partisan gullibility isn't exclusive to Americans ?

    Big deal.
