The launch of Obamacare has been a complete and total nightmare so far. The “online exchanges” are constantly crashing, there are endless glitches and delays, and many of the people that actually have been able to successfully register for an account are discovering that health insurance premiums under Obamacare are far higher than what they are used to paying. In fact, as I wrote about the other day, some Americans that have had their old policies canceled by their insurance companies are discovering that their health insurance costs will double or even triple under Obamacare. What a great “success”, eh? Under Obamacare, Americans are going to pay more for health care, they are going to have more limited health care options, they are going to be subjected to much more paperwork, and if they choose not to participate in the system they are going to be hit with very punitive fines. What’s not to like?
But despite all of the negatives, a lot of Americans were actually looking forward to October 1st. Millions of Americans rushed to the “healthcare exchanges” to get signed up for health insurance. But what they discovered was that the websites were not ready and were constantly crashing.
The system has been so bad that very few people are actually signing up for Obamacare. So far, less than 1 percent of all visitors are actually signing up for health insurance. In California, the rate is 0.58 percent. In Connecticut, the rate is 0.59 percent.
One television station in Tennessee was not able to find a single person who successfully signed up for Obamacare.
Needless to say, there are a whole lot of very frustrated and very disappointed people out there right now. The following are 21 of the best comments that have been posted on the official Healthcare.gov Facebook page so far…
