California Admits Only 1.65% Of Exchange Visitors Signed Up For Obamacare (http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2013-10-08/california-admits-only-165-exchange-visitors-signed-obamacare)

While early "guesswork" had estimated the sign-up rates were not 'terrific', Covered California - the Obamacare exchange - has released data on the final enrollment rates. They are not great:

*COVERED CALIFORNIA SAYS WEBSITE GOT 987,440 UNIQUE VISITORS
*CALIFORNIA EXCHANGE COMPLETES APPLICATIONS ON 16,311 HOUSEHOLDS

Assuming each household is a 'unique' then that is a 1.65% sign-up rate. Doesn't seem like the huge success so many have proclaimed.

Covered California Website (https://www.coveredca.com/news/10-8-13-consumers-apply.html)

Website and Call Center Weekly Report: Oct.1-5

Unique visits to CoveredCA.com 987,440

...

Applications completed with household eligibility determined 16,311

Number of Californians determined eligible for coverage 28,699

Small Business Health Options Program businesses registered as of 10/8/2013 430

I think to be realistic you need to give the systems some time. BUT the overall
impression when you look at it is the Libtards are trying to dress up a pig.

These systems were clearly not stress tested enough by anyones standards except da Gubmints.

If this had been a role out done by "Company X", the IT director and Sr. Analysts would
all be updating their resumes.

It's a piss poor start.

Using the state census from 2010 and adjusting for approximate population increases in the 3 years since, California has covered 0.00041% of the population of the state with health insurance.

Wow, what a success. :smilie_wall:
