Whadayamean I Gotta Pay?

It seems some folks who voted for Obama based on the idea of Obamacare never dreamed
they might have to actually PAY for that stuff.

They don't pay to get a welfare check or food stamps. They don't pay to get Section 8 assistance. Why should they have to PAY for Obamacare?

Yeah, that is a problem.

CMS recently downgraded the 8 million Obamacare sign ups to 7.3 million.

Even that figure may be generous.

Why the change in numbers?
As Doug Holtz-Eakin, former director of the Congressional Budget Office, explained, "it’s not enough to sign up. You have to sign up and pay on a regular basis to really be enrolled."

Paying for health insurance. What a novel idea.
state officials in Florida say their enrollments are now 220,000 lower than the administration's count in April, going from some 983,000 to just over 762,000, a drop of more than 20 percent.
One out of five drop out dead beats.

Mark Bertolini, the CEO of Aetna, the nation's third largest insurer, said recently that his company had 720,000 people sign up for exchange coverage as of May 20, but only 600,000 turned out to be paying customers.
He added he expects that number to fall to "just over 500,000" by the end of the year. That would leave Aetna's paid enrollment down some 30 percent from its original sign-up numbers.
Some bought insurance, got their problem "fixed", then dropped insurance?
