Obamacare Failure: Few Americans Sign Up for Pro-Abortion, Pro-Rationing Care

Only 106,185 Americans signed up for an insurance plan through the Obamacare health care law through November 2, according to numbers released today from the HHS Department. That is a far cry from the number of people the Obama administration expected to sign up by this point for health care that likely pays for abortions and may be rationed.

The Department of Health and Human Services announced that at least 500,000 Americans would enroll in October and the Congressional Budget Office estimated that seven million Americans would get insurance via Obamacare by March 31, but the numbers are way behind.

Of the 106,185 enrollments, just 26,794, or about 25 percent, signed up through the federal Healthcare.gov website that allows people from about three-fourths of the states to sign up. Another 79,391 enrollments came from the state-run health care exchange web sites.

Meanwhile, 396,261 Americans were declared eligible for the expanded Medicaid coverage, lower than the projection of 9 million Americans expected to enroll by 2014.



A new national poll conducted by Rasmussen Reports finds Americans strongly support repealing the Obamcare health care law by a 13-point margin. The law has come under heavy criticism from pro-life advocates for abortion funding, sending taxpayer funds to the Planned Parenthood abortion business, and rationing healthcare.

The new survey finds just 35% of likely voters now believe the trouble-plagued health care law is good for America. Fifty-five percent (55%) consider it bad for the country. Only two percent (2%) think it will have no impact.
