Obamacare touts 6 million now enrolled

Remember just a short time ago when the PPACA, aka Obamacare, operatives were touting a goal of bringing affordable health insurance to some 30 million people who were uninsured at the time?  Stories, clips, news, and ‘social current see’ on the topic now tout that enrollment has reached 6 million this year, about 1/5th of the former goal.  Is there a reason for the undercount and under performance?

Hands Quiz: You use them every day. But do you know a lot about them?


A hand (med./lat.: manus, pl. manūs) is a prehensile, multi-fingered extremity located at the end of an arm or forelimb of primates such as humans, chimpanzees, monkeys, and lemurs. A few other vertebrates such as the koala (which has two opposable thumbs on each “hand” and fingerprints remarkably similar to human fingerprints) are often described as having either “hands” or “paws” on their front limbs. Flip2▶ SOURCE
