    California hits 2014 Obamacare enrollment targets ahead of schedule

    Ask any Republican in Congress whether or not Obamacare can work and they'll give you the same answer: It can't work, and it will collapse of its own weight because not enough people will sign up for it, creating a death spiral.
    Well, we're more than month away from the end of open enrollment, and take a look at California:
    Well before the March 31 deadline to buy insurance, California announced Tuesday it has already exceeded its 2014 enrollment goals for its health care exchange.
    By the end of January, 728,410 people had enrolled in private health plans through Covered California, and 100,000 more signed up in the first two weeks of February. About 26% are 34 and younger.
    So with nearly six weeks left to go, California has already hit its target. New York also reporting strong growth, with nearly a half-million signups. Nationwide, more than one million people signed up in January alone. And in related news, the number of uninsured has hit a five-year low.
    But we're not just seeing Obamacare working in blue states or in reddish states with blue governors. We're also seeing that even in the deepest red of states, Obamacare can work:
    Humana, one of two insurers to offer coverage in [Mississippi] through a health insurance marketplace, recently obtained Obama administration approval to waive fees for enrollees who see a doctor by the end of June for a nonpreventive visit.
    The result has been a surge in Obamacare signups. Even the state's Republican insurance commissioner acknowledges that it's working:

    Ever since Bubba Clinton got away with lying to the American people, the liberals have made this part of their playbook. Just look at how many times O has lied in just the past year. You can keep your doctor...:laugh:

    On a serious note, they are getting away with it even if the polls say the majority don't trust Obama. That is where I cannot understand. If the elections in the fall don't go heavily for conservatives then I can only think there is something more evil going on.

    I still can't look at that orange shade the dailykook uses for more than three seconds before it starts to give me a headache. Obamacare enrollment, Medicaid increases are not the issue at hand anyways. Whatadisaster.

    There is something evil going on. The question is can it be stopped.

    The solution: both sides of the house and senate, the whole political spectrum, need to repent and get right with God. "All have sinned and come short of the Glory of God".

    God held off wrath on Sodom and Gomorrah--for a while.

    Jesus is the only one who will make it right. The world will not go willingly.

    Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

    I take exception to that statement. Only someone with a numb mind could be a liberal/leftist/progressive!
