(Article): The ObamaCare Disaster
I've been following the Plum Line, a liberal blog associated with the Washington Post. In an interesting article, columnist Greg Sargent admitted that the website was a disaster. It's hard to argue, otherwise, but some numbers he shared demonstrate how profound of a failure this program is:
-Since inception, 106,000 have enrolled in Obamacare health plans. This is compared to nearly 5,000,000 cancellations!
-The enrollment to cancellation ratio was so startling that it prompted the Obama administration to develop its own solution. The "solution" was to extend cancelled policies for a year. This is another example of temporary solutions to serious economic problems. This solution is already facing problems in the social engineering mecca of California.
-USA Today has provided a detailed study on the insane price increases in health plans as a result of Obamacare.
Typically, social programs like these take years, if not decades to demonstrate their failures. However, the state's obsession with equality as an outcome on such a sweeping level likely expedited this failure.
