    Again, no mention of how many of the 3,000,000 were uninsured previously. How do we know if 3 million is good or bad???

      Nor does it say how many of these people have paid their premiums and are definitely insured. Funny how we the taxpayers who own this and are responsible for paying for this are having information withheld from us by a few power hungry thugs from Chicago who believe we are working for them and not that they are public servants supposed to be working for us and telling us what they are doing and what is going on. So much for the most transparent administration ever. What a load of crock!

      You don’t know if the number is any good. It isn’t and is far shy of 3 mill.
      Besides if you net that against the 6 million that lost their health insurance they are a long way on the hole. 6 million who lost coverage plus 7 million sign up target is 10 million. Less something less than 3 million, plus the 80% who signed up under Medicaid and I think that they have failed so far

    How many of those 3 million were uninsured and how many were just trying to find a cheaper insurance than what they had?

      And how many of them lost their insurance despite Obama saying they could keep their insurance but lost it anyway and were forced to buy Obamacare? With higher deductibles, higher premiums and coverage for things they didn’t want like maternity coverage for 60+ year olds?

    Enrolled or actually covered and paying premium? How many were previously insured and had to lose coverage due to the Health Care Deform mandates? Give us the truth.

    With respect to the ACA, the Republican Party’s biggest fear is not the the federal healthcare law WON’T successfully provide affordable medical coverage to millions of previously-uninsured Americans — their greatest fear is that it WILL.

      And bankrupt the country as a consequence. We have a current debt of over $17 trillion and another $80 trillion in unfunded liabilities from Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, but since nobody on the left has any clue of basic economics or basic finance they cluelessly march into the ocean like a bunch of lemmings. You really think Obamacare will not blow up the way Social Security and Medicare have? Oh that’s right. You’re clueless to the problems with those programs.

      I saw a great quote over the weekend. Someone compared how Obama spends our money like a drunken sailor. A drunken sailor wrote back saying that is not true. “As a drunken sailor, when I ran out of money, I stopped spending!”

    I actually think the 3 million might be low. I’ve been tracking our placements and we have handled over 200 people for ACA insurance and 75% were placed through the marketplace. The other 25% was placed direct with a carrier. Not sure they even know about that 25%. 100% of our clients have paid the first month.

    This doesn’t mean the program is a success. They actually need about 7 million to enroll. And what about the 34 million uninsured we kept hearing about?

        Don’t have exact stats on those questions FFA. I would say at least half have either lost or are losing coverage from their current carrier. We’ve also had some that don’t have income but don’t qualify for Medicaid, so they are in a whole not eligilbe for anything (Pa did not expand Medicaid). 75% are eligible for a subsidy which is why we pu them through Healthcare.gov. The cost of this law is going to be massive in my opinion.

          Everyone I have put on is subsidy eligible. Everyone I have put on came with some form of Pre X from the Seasonal type to the chronic. I got one of my wife billing in on Saturday. $3398 for just the hospital portion – no lab, no radiology – no physician, just the hospital $3398.00 My current premium covering both of us is $1172. This was not through the exchange. I am just gonna take it on the tax return. Blue Cross loss ration in my agency is gonna be big…
