• White House Can’t Say How Many Have Paid For ObamaCare

    At the White House press briefing today Jay Carney was asked how many of the six million that have signed up for Obamacare have actually paid. “We don’t have those figures. When we do, we’ll get them to you,” Carney said.

    The Obama administration has been boasting that over 6 million people have signed up on the federal healthcare exchange since the online market place opened up last October.

    However, Carney’s hesitation to disclose the real number of Americans who have signed up for plans and have also paid might come from the fact that number is embarrassingly low. Indeed, as CNN reports, “Around one in five people who picked health insurance policies on the state and federal exchanges last year haven’t paid their first month’s premiums, according to insurers polled by CNNMoney. These folks will likely see their policy selection canceled and they’ll be left uninsured.”

    Here’s a tweet that New York State Health sent out to remind New Yorkers to pay their first month’s premiums:

    The latest Associated Press-GfK poll shows that just 26 percent say they are in favor Obamacare.
