    Now it’s estimated that only 5-10% of those are actually enrolled, that is, they have paid their money and the insurance company has a record of them. Come first of the year, there will be a real nightmare occurring when people are shocked they don’t have insurance, then the crap really hits the fan.

    Assuming about 10% have paid, I see $140,000.00 per enrollee. But if you look at it the other way around, 5.8 million losing their policies, that is only $900.00 per policy to cause it to go away.
    Seems cost effective?

  3. I propose that Obama honors his commitments. So, he will make good on the 2,500/yr savings. So take the $2,500 extra it costs for the new insurance (lowball guess), and subtract the 2,500 savings, and you need a $5,000 tax credit for every taxpayer in the nation (for those that actually pay taxes). Adjustable by income, of course.

    And then to keep the budget the same, you would simply reduce the budget by that much. So we start with a 3,450,000 million budget, and reduce that by $5,000*138 million taxpayers, or 690,000 million, or exactly 20%. And then to balance the budget, you must overcome the $135,000 million per month deficit, or 1,620,000 million. So now we could just reduce the spending by $2,310,000 million per year, and balance the budget, and still have Obama live up to his promises. This would be a budget cut of 67% starting next year. This would also bring government to a much more manageable level.

    Problem solved.

      I love how you think — I just wished that we could get the DC politicians to think the same way. Instead they are more like a room full of cocaine addicts debating whether We The People should pay for more nose candy next year, or less. I can imagine how the voting goes… “OK, should we get more cocaine next year? Yes or no? Wow, only a 98% yes vote! Must be a couple of Congressmen who did not understand the question!”

    It’s worse than that. States that did not participate still get an even 1 million each.
    California with 38 million people got 910 million so 24K per person (man, woman, child). Hawaii with 1.3 million people got 205 million which works out to 158K per person.

    let’s not forget that about 90 percent of “Enrollees” are going on Medicaid for free.

    Don’t forget the $134-300 million spent to enroll 44 patients with Cover Oregon (and the Governor is a physician). http://www.koin.com/news/oregon/report-cover-ore-enrolled-only-44-people-in-november

  7. Mike D says:

    There are fees in the cost of the policies in order to pay for the exchanges. There are taxes to cover subsidies. Premiums are doubling and deductibles are mostly higher. There is other money being thrown at these efforts from various agencies.

    Where is all that money going? There’s not even 1 million more people covered and even if they’re all on permanent life support, it doesn’t cost all the billions being spent or the extra amounts being collected in premiums every month.
