As the Obama-loving media echo White House talking points that opening day “glitches” at online healthcare exchanges crashed Tuesday due to a flood of interested Americans clamoring for insurance, they might consider what happened in Connecticut.
According to Congressman Jim Himes (D-Conn.), out of the 28,000 visitors to his state’s exchange Tuesday, only 167 actually signed up.
For those that can do math, that means 0.6 percent of visitors actually applied for insurance.
If that’s what President Obama and his media minions think is a success, one has to wonder what they’d call failure.
The New York Times reported Wednesday that about 2.8 million people visited the federal exchange at Healthcare.gov.
