The 2,300 page healthcare law that took several days from writing to passage, and five years from passage to rollout will apparently take 50 years just to sign everyone up.

According to Forbes only about 5,000 people have signed up using the federal exchange. They say that another 25,000 have signed up using the state exchanges through Friday.

That’s 2,727 every day.

At that rate, it will take 18,335 days to sign up all 50 million Americans “without insurance.”

That means that it would take 50 years just to sign up everyone who isn’t covered now.*

Who needs a one-year delay in the individual mandate when you have the Obamacare web design team on your side?

Imagine a computer generated hour glass filling and emptying for 50 years.

Of course many of those 50 million won’t be covered under Obamacare anyway.

If more proof was needed of the inestimable idiocy of the Democrats’ domestic policy was needed, the unveiling of Obamacare should just about do it.

It won’ be cheaper, you can’t keep your coverage or your doctor, it won’t cover everyone, and if you need it, you can’t sign up. Oh, and just wait until you have to see a doctor. I’m sure THAT ought to be easy (eye roll).

Other than those little “glitches” the law works great.

That is, if anyone was actually paying attention to it right now.

But many aren’t. Perhaps a majority, say, like, 99.9 percent don’t really care.

That’s probably a good thing considering that the biggest problems with the law won’t be sign up, but fulfillment.

Open your mouth and say “ah”.


Obamacare has made our economy sick. And our country too.

Even before implementation, the economy was suffering from Obamacare-related complications. It got worse at the beginning of the year when employers stopped hiring people for fulltime positions in anticipation of Obamacare changing the definition of fulltime workers to only 29 hour per week.
