Apparently defending the indefensible has become too much for our left wing friends on here. Maybe the Journal should add an "I know it its true but I wish it wasn't" button to the "agree" and "disagree" menu.

And on a related note, in Minnesota the state exchange isn't even recording if people signing up had previous coverage or not. How can the success of the program be monitored if they aren't even keeping track ?

This whole healthcare takeover was engineered to "help" all of those folks with no health insurance. When it comes to Minnesota they don't even seem to care enough to track if they are reaching their targeted market. If they aren't even bothering to count you really have to wonder why they really orchestrated this fiasco in the first place.

In the end it just gets added to the growing list of lies perpetrated to shove this program down our throats.

The current situation of plummeting approval numbers of the president, the increasing number of cancellations, and the WH now knowing the numbers of enrollees is not what was expected, will cause a few changes by writing some exec orders or rewriting regulations to save this debacle and to protect those Dems coming up for election this next year. The president and the Dems do not want this to go back thru the House and Senate for any corrections or rewriting. When you see 80+% of enrollees being Medicaid enrollees is causing great alarm and will cause problems to the states as they will have to assume responsibility for Medicaid costs slowly over the next three years and fully responsible after that period of time.

And the President just apologized to the people forced to give up plans they currently have and wanted to keep. As long as his apology was sincere, it makes it all better then.

What they meant is that the number will be insignificant compared to the number of people thrown off of their current small business employer sponsored health insurance. That wave of destruction will start in January 2014. Some of these small businesses will be able to hang on until 2015 by using a loophole and renewing their plans for another year before January 2014. But, the new law of the land sets table rates for businesses at higher levels regardless of their actual claim experience. For the most responsible businesses that have relatively healthy or young employees, the law of the land is designed to force their rates up anyway.

Don't worry though. It is all being done to protect your best interest.
