One Step Forward(?), Two Steps Back

A not-so-Happy New Year for those of us for whom health insurance, and health care, are a priority:

"More than 4.7 million Americans had their health insurance canceled as a result of [the ObamaqTax] ... but [HHS Secretary Shecantbeserious] confirmed Tuesday that between federal and state exchanges, just 2 million Americans have signed up for (coverage)."

Not that this is a major surprise, mind you, just a reminder that the train-wreck continues to provide a lesson in how not to solve any supposed health insurance (or care) crisis.

But wait, it gets better worse:

"CNN's Jim Acosta asked Bataille if she could at least say with confidence that a "very high percentage" of those 2.1 million had paid."

Long time readers can already guess the answer....

"Bataille said, “We are confident that those consumers have selected a plan and know what the next steps are for them in terms of securing coverage.”

Which is a rather long-winded way of saying "no."

Par for the course.
