As the Obama administration continues to struggle with the many glitches that plague the healthcare.gov website, perhaps it’s time we take a step back and review where we stand with the massive government-run program.
The White House claims roughly 2.1 million Americans enrolled in Obamacare through Dec. 28. However, as TheBlaze and other have noted several times, the administration has yet to build a payment option on the healthcare.gov website, meaning no one has actually paid to enroll in the program. If no one has paid, then no one is covered.
People have signed up for Obamacare — but they’re not enrolled.
So what of the signups then? What do we know about those?
First, 24 percent of all signups through Dec. 28 are in the 18-34 age group, that is, the group most needed to keep the program financially stable. Further, approximately 21 percent of participants are not eligible for subsidies, meaning 79 percent of Obamacare enrollees will be subsidized. Lastly, more women (roughly 54 percent) than men have signed up.
The following charts and commentary from Bloomberg will help you visualize the first three months of Obamacare signups:
