Why No-Bama Care?


While I am strongly in favor of “ObamaCare,” I also strongly feel that the system under which we in California are to register/enroll is a sham.

I have been trying to enroll every day since the opening of registration (October 1) and have been unable to do so. I have spoken to at least six online helpers, each of whom has told me that everything is working, and they don’t understand why I’m having a problem. However no one has gotten back to me with a reason for the problem or a way of fixing it.

As best I can tell (and the online helpers agree), I am properly registered. However, when I choose a plan that is being offered to me and try to enroll in it, I am told (in bright red letters) that I “can’t enroll right now, try again later.”

At least we could be told the truth as to what is going on. Something is rotten in the State of California.
