Wisconsin ObamaCare: Less Than 50 Sign Up

The MacIver Institute reports:

The Department of Health and Human Services is still not capable of providing official numbers, but after calling every insurer on the exchange in Wisconsin, the Office of the Commissioner of Insurance discovered "minimal participation."

The number of people who have signed up for individual plans in Wisconsin through the online exchange is "under 50," according to Dan Schwartzer, deputy commissioner at OCI.

Schwartzer said that figure is "really a guess," because there are no official numbers available from the feds. OCI had to call up each insurance company individually to get the information.

The federal government's data hub, which should eventually provide the official, exact numbers, has been down since day 1. Schwartzer said it's not due to the shutdown or because Wisconsin did not set up its own separate exchange.

"The system would still be down," he said to the MacIver News Service.
Good grief.

ObamaCare is a train wreck.
