Uninsured Can’t Afford ObamaCare…Oops…Wasn’t That It’s Purpose?…Well…it had such good “progressive” intentions.

The Washington Post almost immediately provided the answer, running an article explaining that two separate surveys show what the White House and Democrats don’t want the public to know – health insurance marketplaces are simply not signing up the uninsured.

The new health insurance marketplaces appear to be making little headway in signing up Americans who lack insurance, the Affordable Care Act’s central goal, according to a pair of new surveys.

Bob Laszewski reports that another two to five percent of enrollees who paid their January premiums failed to pay in February. That group is also likely skewed toward the previously uninsured.

So 10 percent of the uninsured “selected a plan,” about 5 percent of the uninsured actually paid a first month premium, and even less than that stayed a second month.

This new information is devastating to a White House already on edge as the end-of-March deadline to enroll draws near. A deadline that, if delayed, would cause insurance costs to soar even higher.
