Today’s the day, America!

HHS has released its official Obamacare “enrollment” numbers.

Let’s see what we’ve got:

Wait … seriously?

“Selected plans.” Which, we have to remember, is not the same as “enrolled.”

Let’s see how Healthcare.gov stacked up:

Abysmal. But all is not lost. There are still some enrollment numbers that are high:

So glad you asked!

Working as planned.

Yeah, just a bit.

Don’t ask questions. Just drink it all in.

Bingo. Heckuva job, Team Obama!

How much more fail is it gonna take to get Obama to kick this monstrosity to the curb once and for all?

    Must be that new Common Core math they’re using.

      Nope, it’s standard leftist propaganda math: when the truth hurts, fake it.

    Yippee!!!! Now you get to pay higher premiums AND higher taxes to cover the 300,000 plus and growing medicaid recipients. I feel so patriotic.

    You can fit more people into Michigan Wolverine Stadium for a home football game than what have enrolled in Obamacare according to the most generous figures. What an absolute tragedy.

    Here’s some math for the common core crowd.

    The number of people who placed Obamacare in their “shopping cart” would need to increase by more than 3,200% to equal the number of policies people have LOST since Obamacare.

    • disqus_eric

      I don’t think C/C crowd could understand 3,200%.

      Could try: double it, double again, and again, and again, and again.

    Schadenfreude doesn’t cut it anymore. The titanic is sinking and we are all going down with it. Except the group that engineered this fiasco isn’t going down with the ship.

      They should be bound and gagged and thrown into steerage.

      • me

        Nope. They should stand where Leonardo and Kate stood during impact….

    • tops116 ✓Quipper

      Oh, I don’t know. Based on some new polls, several Democratic Senators may’ve been denied access to some lifeboats.

      • Spinmamma

        The architects of the debacle–e.g. the Emmanuel brothers, aren’t even on the ship.

    Sebelius refuses to say how many people who selected plans actually paid.

    • HanaFiveO

      Probably because there aren’t any.

  • Michelle ✓classified

    I suspect the actual number of “enrollments” will go down even more in about a month – payment is due 12/15. Let’s see how many actually submit a payment.

    • HanaFiveO

      Plus a lot of these are duplicate enrollments from when a page or the site crashed.

      The insurance companies are going nuts trying to weed out the dupes and provide estimates.
      The funniest line on twitter today; I selected a Mercedes, but they would only let me take home a Ford.

    • MNWoman

      I asked this above, but it is regarding the numbers of plans simply “put in” the shopping cart.

      Some websites save shopping cart items for a few days. After that, if the items are not purchased, they are automatically deleted. I wonder if some of these are people who have selected a policy, put it in the cart and just left it there. They may have gone back and re-selected the policy. Even if they didn’t buy the policy, I wonder if it would get counted twice.

  • WhoDat

    Way more than the number in my hometown of 2,000.

    But, which is it, 7million or 3.5 million?

    • ObamaFail

      More people have lost insurance than been insured through Obamacare. Try to spin that, libby. You can mock us all you want, but it’s just pathetic when I think about it. Your God is a complete failure, the miracle law you guys were bragging about for 3 years is a mess and only liberals like you are too stupid to see it. Spin it all you want. But Obamacare is a failure, and the only people whose hand is in the cookie jar are the Democrats.

      • HanaFiveO

        What does the math work out to 1 “enrollment” to every 1125 policies lost? Someone help me out, I always get math wrong when I try to do it in my head.

    • WhoMeToo

      Is that your Louisiana hometown or your Canadian hometown?

    • HanaFiveO

      The numbers are growing everyday as cancellation notices are sent out in the thousands. 7 mil is the current figure.
      My town/district is 2200 and Im out in the jungle in the tropics. The post office is our town center, with a general store and gas pumps, if ya sneeze ya miss it completely.

    • tops116 ✓Quipper

      Well, Team Obama called for 7 million, but I suspect that by the time this month is over, the number will be “Whatever it is at the end of March.”

    106,000 steps forward, 4,850,000 steps back (and growing)…………..

    And to put it all into perspective……..

    The average human step is a stride of 2.5 ft. A mile is 5,280 feet.
    106,000 steps forward equates to traveling 50 miles forward.

    4,850,000 steps back equates to traveling 2,296 miles

    The net change in people covered by insurance is 2,246 miles in the WRONG direction…………..enough to get you from New York City to just outside of Scottsdale, AZ
    Nice job Obama, Democrats, and Democrat voters………. Nice job indeed!!!!

    Obamaworld using the familiar analogue, they used for employment statistics;

    introducing Americans to the “jobs saved” category,

    today, they launched the “enrolled (almost)” category.

    Damage Control Report from ACA ObamaCare:

    Hole well below the water line taking in too much water. Ship listing, sinking fast.

    Put another hole opposite it to let the water out!!!

  • HanaFiveO

    And the WH house just tweeted a 500K enrolment. Apparently they don’t read their own reports. Even tho they have grossly padded the numbers and are counting Medicaid enrolls as Ocare successes, this is still an abysmal failure.

  • MNWoman

    I wonder if OFA is frantically recruiting people to create accounts just so they can select a plan to put in the shopping cart.

    • HanaFiveO

      I wouldn’t put it past them.

  • MNWoman

    I have a question. If I am shopping online, the website usually saves my shopping cart for a set amount of time…usually a few days. After that, if i haven’t actually checked out, my shopping cart gets cleared.

    Would 404….er…i mean healthcare.gov work the same way?

  • TocksNedlog

    Well, the Good News is that at this rate they will reach their first-year goal of 7 million enrollments in just 5.6 years!

  • tops116 ✓Quipper

    Just another 6,893,815 to go!

  • AMERICAN Kafir™✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈwhitey

    So a little less than the population of Lansing, MI (114,000 in 2010) has put a plan in their shopping cart.

  • Paul767

    It depends on what the definition IS, is.
