A Spate of Troubling Facts 2
a) According to CBS News, a September 3rd government memo addressing the Obamacare web-site security situation claimed that "the threat and risk potential (to the system) is limitless." This is what the memo said and they decided to go ahead with the roll-out anyway. Try and blame this one on Reagan....or Bush, I dare ya'.............b) The early enrollment figures for Obamacare are in and they're hugely disappointing; 106,000 (their target for the first month was 500,000). But that's not the only thing. It appears that amongst these numbers are people who have simply put an "item' in their shopping cart and not paid a penny as of yet and, yes, if you were to remove these folks from the data the stats would be even more pitiful.............c) It would also be interesting to see how many of the new enrollees are young and healthy as opposed to old and sick, 'cause if it's in any way seriously weighted toward the latter we are fucked yet again.
