A dollar here, a dollar there... [UPDATED]

Remember when the ObamaTax was going to solve the "crisis" of the uninsured?

Yeah, about that:

"About half of uninsured Americans surveyed didn’t try to sign up for health coverage under Obamacare because they said they couldn’t afford it"

And by the way, kudos to Ms Shecantbeserious for making sure these folks knew about the subsidies.

Wait, what?

"[M]ost [were] unaware that financial assistance was available."

It's almost as if the whole excercise was screwed up from Day 1.

UPDATE: So just how many folks have signed up since Open Enrollment ended?

Hard Impossible to say:

"The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has not released any QHP enrollment figures for the exchanges it runs since the end of the open enrollment period, and some observers say it may not release new QHP enrollment figures until the 2015 open enrollment period begins."

Here's a thought: if it was a rousing success, do you think they'd be keeping these numbers under wrap?
