Yesterday it was pointed out that more people have applied to live on Mars than have signed up for Obamacare. The launch has been nothing short of a disaster, and the numbers from some states are showing that the administration’s initial sign-up goals will be unattainable:
Four states had fewer than 800 people successfully (and the definition of “successfully” varies) in the first week.
To South Dakota:
The Daily Mail reports that those numbers mean that Vermont spent $12,000 to attract each new health insurance customer. Remember, this is all somehow supposed to save money in the long run.
Those numbers, though dismal in many states, at least prove that enrollment isn’t a complete impossibility.
