Bungling Mars Health Care Signup Deadline

By Jim McCoy Tue 25th March NewsObamacare
As supporters of the federal health care reforms push for final signups, a handful of states are pressing the reset button. They have botched the process so badly they are already looking beyond Monday's enrollment deadline to the next enrollment period this fall. Many states and the federal government experienced problems with the enrollment websites. But implementation of the federal Affordable Care Act has been a relative disaster in Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, Oregon and Vermont. Early projections for those five states were to sign up a combined 800,000 Americans for private health insurance by March 31, 11 percent of the Obama administration's original target for national enrollment. With just days to go before the six-month enrollment period ends, achieving just 25 percent of that target would be considered a success.
