An Obamacare “navigator” who works in Colorado was asked how many people she’s signed up for “affordable” care. Her answer:

“So far, no one. Thus far everybody has taken a look at the rates and they’ve walked out the door. There’s sticker shock. They just can’t afford it.”

According to President Obama, the “prices are low”, and therefore she’s lying. Call me crazy, but I think I believe her (video h/t Weekly Standard):

I can’t help but wonder if that “navigator” has lost her job yet, but maybe fessing up to Al Jazeera America isn’t as bad as talking to Sean Hannity.

    She's the navigator and Obama is the pile it.

    And now it comes to light that the reason Zero delayed the employer mandate is because half of 93 million people covered by insurance through their employers are going to be getting the same letters that individuals have been getting telling them they have lost their coverage. Think about it – had he not done that – along with the roll out of the website – there would be blood in the street right now. AND apparently, the grandfather clause written by Zero and Siffilus for the individuals and employers IS completely different than the grandfather clause written for the unions – who were also given waivers. The clause written for them insures they will never lose their coverage. It's going to be a wild ride!

    By the time this becomes fully implemented the 15 million uninsured will be insured and the rest of the country will not be insured! What a bunch idiots!

    "She's the navigator and Obama is the pile it. "
    So, the question is: Was she leading potential clients to the "pile" or away from it? I guess they got a whiff and decided to have no part of it.

    Granny, I've been reading an article on Breitbart that strongly suggests the whole game has actually been an effort to create an army of new Democrat voters – potentially 60+ million applicants for Medicaid and subsidized Obamacare plans.

    Granny,

    doriangrey shared that very assessment in his link from the last thread. An epigram would have read "History of the Friday Doc Dump" ( italicized natch )

    He took pains to describe how exploitive manipulation of the Nielsen Ratings from the 50's on, polished by Clinton and *perfected* by O'Drama leaves only the last off-ramp:

    "Yes, sorry to break it to you, but this is exactly how you are being manipulated."

    We need to get your point out FAST before their stench from the end stall dissipates. I really hadn't thought about it but yours makes perfect sense.

    Chap,

    Earlier this week Truesoldier linked a local CO art. on The Debacle saying that of the 18,000 that managed to get thru, less than 300 actually completed it!

    In terms of Sales, and "closing ratios" that is absolutely abysmal. "Cost of Acquisition" would translate to a pink slip long before it got that bad. I can also add that of that [287?] approx. a 1/3rd won't even follow thru.

    I disagree with that assessment. This is more about destroying the insurance industry thus leaving only the federal government as the sole health insurer. Right now, the only people signing up are the ones who either are getting Medicaid (extra burden on state budgets) or those who have pre-existing conditions (to whom high premiums are nothing compared to their treatment costs without insurance). This will lead to insurance companies going out of business as their first year losses under Obamacare will be so great that they will not be able to recover (especially when the majority of your customers are taking out of the insurance more than they ever put in. Remember there are no lifetime caps anymore). At that point Dear Leader will swoop in with single payer to save the day (and ruin the US healthcare system).

    The WhoreCast, staffed the event. “Jolene,” another sex worker who had already enrolled through the California exchange, was also on hand to talk users through the process.
