According to the New York Times on Oct. 12, the Obamacare rollout has not been the success that we have been led to believe. As a matter of fact, major insurance company executives report that only a "trickle" of the 14.6 million visitors to the Affordable Healthcare Act website have actually purchased insurance. They obtained these statistics from the government enrollment files provided to them.
In media appearances, proponents of Obamacare are always careful to state that the initial enrollment figures are not yet available. While the Obama administration has admitted that the Affordable Care Act website has been slowed down by higher traffic than anticipated, the overall message has been that it is a raving success. It appears from this New York Times article that the opposite is true.
The Obama administration is embarrassed by the major problems experienced with the $400 million dollar system. Those who designed and implemented the system were concerned that it was not ready for launch.
