Obamacare fail: More enroll for Mars trip than for health exchange

Marvin the MartianThe hits just keep on coming with Obamacare enrollee tales of disaster, with the latest joke that more people have actually completed an online application to journey to Mars than successfully signed into the White House’s websites for health reform exchanges.

The Daily Mail reported that Twitter exploded on Thursday after it was revealed that 202,586 individuals had successfully signed up for the Mars One colony project to populate the red planet as soon as the technology becomes available. By comparison, the analytics firm Compete.com found that only 36,000 have registered for Obamacare via the official government site, Healthcare.gov.

The Department of Health and Human Services said that number is wrong — that 51,000 have actually signed up, The Daily Mail reported. But no matter: Both numbers are still low when looked at through the lens of projections.

The Associated Press reported earlier this week that a HHS memo indicated that the government had actually set a goal of signing up 500,000 individuals per month, starting with Oct. 1.

The glitches over Obamacare enrollment are becoming quite an embarrassment for the White House. SOURCE

Somehow I just have to doubt that last line about Obamacare enrollment becoming an embarrassment for the White House. I don’t think the Obama regime CAN be embarrassed, I don’t think they have the ability to be embarrassed because, when all else fails they can BLAME BUSH and blame anything the American people oppose from Obama as RACISM.

What the Obama regime is going to have to accept is this; Americans do NOT want Obamacare, they see it as a failure, and for the most part, saw it as a failure before it ever got off of the ground and more to the point, Americans don’t like to be forced into anything and that is exactly what Obama is doing; forcing this debacle off on the American people.

Among the latest, as reported by The Daily Mail: Only 712 people in Vermont have been able to successfully enroll in the state exchange — despite the state spending about $9 million of taxpayer dollars to promote the online site. And Alaska continues to suffer a zero percentage rate. Sen. Lisa Murkowski said her state has yet to log in even one enrollee.

Look at the HUGE sums of money that Obama is spending to get his healthcare bill in place, and then look at the extremely small number of Americans that have signed up for it.

Obamacare is unsustainable, it is unaffordable for nearly ALL Americans, and those that could afford it are exempt from it.

Millions upon millions of OUT TAX DOLLARS are being spent in what amounts to a *bad ad campaign* that isn’t going to recoup any of its expenditure. Obamacare is going to be the straw that breaks the back of the American monetary system as it bankrupts a nation already strained to the limit.

Does anyone remember The Edsel by the Ford Motor Company?

The Edsel

The Edsel never gained popularity with contemporary American car buyers and sold poorly. The Ford Motor Company lost millions of dollars on the Edsel’s development, manufacturing and marketing.

Obamacare is the new Edsel, but unlike the Edsel and it nearly bankrupting Ford Motors, Obamacare is going to bankrupt the American taxpayer, and I believe that is the full intent of Obama, to BREAK the American people so that they become totally reliant on the United States government.

Meanwhile, CNN reported that the government website to enroll has been spontaneously wiping out some enrollees’ passwords.

But if we look on the bright side; Obama and Company are too stupid to build a simple registration site that works. Do we really need to worry all that much about *domestic intelligence gathering*?

    Howdy Fred!
    “Obamacare is going to bankrupt the American taxpayer, and I believe that is the full intent of Obama, to BREAK the American people so that they become totally reliant on the United States government.”


    This from Dr. Ben Carson;

    Dr. Ben Carson compares Obamacare to slavery / October 11th 2013

    While speaking at the Values Voters Summit in Washington Friday, Dr. Ben Carson, a former professor of neurosurgery, oncology and pediatrics at Johns Hopkins University, compared Obamacare to slavery and invoked the memory of Soviet leader Vladimir Lenin.

    “I have to tell you, you know, ‘Obamacare’ is really, I think, the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery,” he said. “In a way, it is slavery, in a way because it is making all of us subservient to the government.”

    “It was never about health care,” he added. “It was about control.

    And that’s why - that’s why when this administration took office it didn’t matter that the country was going off the cliff economically. All forces were directed toward getting this legislation passed.”

    His comments prompted a standing ovation among the 2000 attendees.

    He also said Obama’s signature healthcare legislation is something a former Communist leader would approve of.

    “And why did they want to pass it so badly?” he asked. “Well, as I said the other night on television, Vladimir Lenin, one of the fathers of socialism and communism, said that socialized medicine is the keystone to the establishment of a socialist state.”

    “Some people say, oh come on, you’re being paranoid. Why would you bring up something like that. I would say if you know anything about history, how could you not bring that up,” he added.

    When people in the governing class don’t have to participate in the program, but everyone else has to, “that’s not America, that’s Russia,” he said.

    Everyday people are beginning to realize what Socialism is and are realizing it’s heading full bore into American society. We’re reading the reports of healthy working middle class Americans who have had their insurance premiums raised so that the premiums of those with preexisting conditions are lower and costs for those who can’t pay are nonexistent. Even a writer at the ultra liberal Daily KOS is upset about this. This is what Socialism is all about; taking from those that have and giving to those that don’t have. Also, if any of you know anything about Communism, you’ll know that Communism cannot be achieved until full Socialism is achieved first.

    Unless something happens, look to see our health care system become like England in the near future. Probably most of us here will fall under a National Healthcare System. You’ll have no family or permanent doctor as you’ll see who’s ever on duty at the clinic when you finally get called in. Forget about private hospital rooms as you’ll most likely have more than one roommate. Look for many hospitals and doctors to go private. If they accept no Federal money and insurance, they can be selective on their patients. Those with money will have the best doctors as their private insurance plans will cover the best. My son was born in England where we only had access to civilian doctors and medical facilities. Since CHAMPUS was our military insurance, they paid for a private doctor. We had one of the best in Oxford as on occasional his receptionist would address a few couples as “Lord and Lady” as she called them into the examination room. But, those on government health care never knew who they were going to see at their appointment.

    The road to serfdom

  4. LD Jackson says:

    It seems to me that the failures of Obamacare are piling higher every day. Clearly, Obama’s pet project was not ready for prime time. Many are saying the smartest thing to do is to let it crash and burn. My only problem with that scenario is that it could possibly lead to a single payer system, which is what Obama really wants.

  5. dekare says:

    The comment “The road to serfdom…” hit me. Who paved that road? It’s easy to say obama, but he was only able to do so by a corrupt media and those willing to vote for him. I break down the voters of obama into three basic groups.

    The communists, that want capitalism to fail (liberals, elitests, progressives, commies, etc.).

    The blacks and other minorities, that are fucking stupid and do whatever the can for a fellow black man who they think has their back. There are also those blacks and minorities that know that obama isn’t going to do shit for them, but if it hurts whitey, then that is okay by them and worthy of their vote. If they get hurt by obama, well that is okay, as long as whitey gets hurt too.

    And lastly, the ignorant…the low information voter and independants. People so stupid, they can’t even pick a side as they have no idea what they themselves believe in. The truly stupid that will believe or do whatever the last person tells them to. These are the same idiots if you ask them if it is okay to murder them, they will say they need to ask their spouse if its okay. They have no opinion and are slightly better smelling zombies, who mindlessly go through life with no real purpose. They do nothing to get information beyond MSNBC and believe everything the media tells them.

    And so, I now bring up the media. This is the crux. If the low info voter is told the truth about what is happening to our country, and ultimately to them, they will respond properly. But the media is in th bag for obama. Why I have no idea. I can only imagine that there is some indoctrination in journalism school that converts them. And if that doesn’t take hold, and they insist on conservative news reporting, they find themselves unable to work for the “big guys” that now control the media.

    So, we MUST take back the media. All the money the GOP spends getting their mesage out is wasted. How about gathering up a few dollars and buying the NY Times, or LA Times, or ABC or CBS, or whoever now has the ear of the populice. The numbers of these outlets are going down and they do NOT make the money they used to, so they can be had for a good price..no? But that is also the problem. No conservative wants to invest good money in a bad industry. Well, maybe it’s bad becasue the message they put forth sucks. If the message was changed, the numbers, and value of the investment would go up too. regardless of the profit margin of the single paper or station. Look at the bigger picture. If FOX had a few friends, another station or two, and a few rags behind them, then FOX would no longer be the marginal outsider. They would be the leader in news, with others backing them up. MSNBC would be the minority reporter. This would have the overall effect of directing our political structure, as once it becomes a bad thing to be a liberal, and words like “terrorists”, “communists” start being used again, and the news of what happens on a late Friday evening at the whitehouse gets reported, then the populace will know what happens and respond properly. Hell, even the stupid would do as told if the majority told them it was the right thing to do.

    And in the end, as I asked earlier…who is to blame. Not obama. It is We The People. Now I’m not talking about the average person who is reading this, but those that are not because they have no conservative view and would never read anything conservative. But we allowed this to happen. We placed the title of evil on those like Joe McCarthy who fought communism viciously. We trivialized his efforts and called him the fool. We allowed our schools to veer far from teaching our children to love America, it’s history and its system of capitalism, and instead focus on the history of evil white racists and environmentalism. We allowed news medias to become so one-sided. We failed to punish criminals, we put forth the heroism of single parenting, and failed to secure our borders.

    Now I don’t mean to say we did this purposefully. But somehow, even though all of us here did care about those things, the majority of We The People did NOT. They quit caring about the future of this country. Maybe it was becasue so many of them had failed at life, that they did not care about the future of this country. There were just so many people who were not doing very well despite every opportunity given them, that they no longer cared who was in charge, and whoever gave them more, even if it was a crumb, would get their vote. If America as we knew it failed, who cares as long as I gots me a obamaphone or an extra slices of cheese. Then there is the illegal immingrant, who if allowed to vote, will vote for the govt that lets them in this country and gives them free stuff..NOW.

    America no longer has the vast majority of people who value the old ways. If it did, we would not be in this mess. Like a ship where too many people run to one side of it, it will tip and sink. So, unless change comes quickly to reverse what the liberals have done, lots of change and right soon, we will go the way of socialism. No matter how many great souls we have fighting for America, if we are not the majority, as in 50% plus 1, we wil become socialists, and soon, communists. Can that change happen quick enough? Remember, this did not start with obama 5 years ago. It started the first second WWII was over. Step by step, bit by bit, it took hold. What seemed wrong at first became the norm, and once that norm was established, it moved left again. We caved into things like political correctness, environmentalism, racism, welfare, school changes, etc, because it was made to sound like improvements for a good thing, and who could argue with helping children, minorities, mother earth, or hurting peoples feelings? If you did, you were an evil son of a bitch. Like the stern parent who tells their children no for their own good, we were looked at with disdain. So, politicians didn’t want to be parents, and do the hard parenting, they wanted to be friends and say yes and give give give. And they were rewarded with votes. Hell, the votes were free, as it wasn’t their money they were giving away.

    And, like the death of a thousand small pin pricks, our system is dying. It is now thrashing in the last death troes, and unless we start bandaging up those tiny holes, that all seem unimportant individually, we are done for.

    Sorry to go so long, but the road to serfdom is paved…and we paved it.

      Magnificent effort dekare! You truly poured your heart and soul into that one!

      You have covered the basics of why the system is failing, but you have left out the main drivers that have got you to where the system is today.

      For example;

      The Federal Reserve has a lot to answer for in what now passes for an economy. Check out the Rockefella’s, the Morgan’s etc, who had a hand in setting up the Federal Reserve on Jekyll Island in 1913 and their real intentions.

      Look into what Rockefella did to simple homeopathy, home made remedies which most Americans used at the time and still work, but instead, wonder drugs became the magic panacea as advertised by Rockefella which put paid to the simple things in life, things we are now just rediscovering - like the healing and anti-bacterial properties of honey - making us all reliant on drug companies now controlled by the government!

      Look into how and why income tax was introduced, what was the ulterior motive by Woodrow Wilson in pushing for the League of Nations, etc, etc.

      All these things were thought up decades prior to being implemented and for the express purpose of collapsing the America your founding fathers brought about, simply because the individual American, as according to those who hold the worlds purse strings, have far too much liberty!

      If the U.S. is turned into just another commie state then the world is the purse holders oyster. It’s as simple as that!

    I saw this story and thought: “damn, I’ve got to cover that.”

    Ya beat me to it.

    However, as I wrote here, after having Obamacare open rolls for 16 days, the entire state of Delaware signed up ONE person.

    You gotta larf over that one. . .


    • TexasFred says:

      Obama AND Obamacare, failure on EVERY level… Obama and the Dems don’t see it that way but they are dumb as dirt… This is nothing but a failure and every SOB on the GOP side that voted for this crap deserves credit for its failure too..

  7. Bunkerville says:

    While many are afraid this is the way to a single payer, I don’t see it. 80 percent still have the insurance they had before via their employer or otherwise. At the most ten percent or about 30 million were suppose to be eligible are involved. Even they it seems will not make it to the exchanges.

    • Braden Lynch says:

      Obamacare is a Trojan Horse to single payer. When the regulations and stupidity of its implementation damage the health insurance industry, the battle cry of the Democrats will be that they will “save us” with single payer. I would wager that the banners, mailers, and TV ads have already been created and ready to use.

  8. Nemesis says:

    Fred, gotta say it! That is one ugly motor vehicle! No wonder they didn’t sell!

  9. dekare says:

    Now I don’t see the Edsel as something ugly. But then again, all I see is a Ford that represents the 1950′s era. It looks “similar” to most other 50′s cars to me. Of course, it can’t touch the 55-57 Chevy, or the Corvette or T-Bird, or even the 59 BelAir.

    What made it so terrible? Didn’t it have advances in car tech that was supposed to be awesome for its day. Heck, the Tucker was just as innovative, if not more so, and that car is gorgeous, or maybe it’s just what it represents. I have no real emotional car connection to anything prior to 1962. so it is hard to put these in perspecitve. That being said, I am a dyed in the wool muscle car guy from 1963 to 1973, with many exceptions up to 1979. Now those were cars. I owned probably every cool car or something similar of the muscle era. Mustangs, Camaros, Trans Ams, Skylarks, Chevelles, Cutlass, and have personally restored many of them with my own hands.
    I still have a couple of my favorites that have been with me for a while that I still cruise around in just to feel like the good old days.

    • Nemesis says:

      dekare, you’ll probably laugh at this, but in 1972 I had a chance to buy a 1962 Pontiac Parisienne straight six at a bargain basement price without any rust in it at all, mechanically sound and sooooo easy to drive! I fell in love with it as any young male falls in love with his first REAL car and bought it!

      To this 21 year old at the time it just smacked of everything I knew, or didn’t know? about America. And I have not forgotten that vehicle and its reliability to this day. It was a great car to drive which says an awful lot to this now old man about the technology that we could all once rely on as being from home based industry which is now almost a thing of the past.

    The anti-American, anti-God communists didn’t go away. They simply called themselves liberals and progressives and infiltrated our government to continue their dirty work.
