The Shy Guy

Remember when you were in school and had a crush on a cute girl? You would hold her hand in the movies. Take her to the prom.

Except none of this ever happened.

Because you were too shy to ever tell her how you really felt about her. You had a dream, but never followed through.

#Obamacare is the same way.

“In the data that will be released this week, ‘enrollment’ will measure people who have filled out an application and selected a qualified health plan in the marketplace,” the official told the paper.
The distinction is an important one, following reports like the one last week in which the Senate Finance Committee showed that only five individuals had enrolled in the District of Columbia's insurance marketplace. 
In fact, only five individuals had selected a plan and sent their first month's payment insurers. Most individuals appear to be waiting to mail in that check until it is due in December, as coverage won't begin until Jan. 1. 
Enrollment = picking a plan.
Kind of like window shopping.
