| The 2,000 pages of Obamacare, which no one even read, were simply an authorization for Obama and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to do anything required, Charles Krauthammer said on Fox News.
| After two extensions, the Obamacare enrollment deadline has passed. "Consumers who tried to enroll prior to [the deadline] and had problems with the system should contact the marketplace call center for individual assistance" according to a statement by Julie Bataille, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services spokeswoman.
| Record-low approval ratings and the failed launch of his signature legislation mark the first year of Obama's second term as president. Unless there is a crisis, Obama will get very little done in his sixth year in office, James Thurber of American University speculated.
| President Barack Obama and the First Lady spoke to mothers Wednesday from the Oval Office promoting Obamacare as a safety net to families. "As Barack said, your stories are powerful. And it’s our job as mothers to make sure that our young people are informed about their “invincibility,” to make sure that other moms and families out there really understand what this law provides and that they can take advantage of it. This is the beauty of it. People have choices," Michelle Obama claimed.
| Charles Krauthammer charged the Obama Administration with using the election day as a fulcrum for 2012 actions. "The worst element about it was Obama campaigning and saying repeatedly against the Republicans in 2012, these guys -- the Republicans, the GOP -- care only about the next election and not about the next generation at a time when his administration was manipulating the regulations in Obamacare in a way that actually hurt the roll out of Obamacare," Krauthammer said on Fox News.
| Only about 365,000 individuals have signed up on the healthcare exchanges, the Department of Health and Human Services said Wednesday. Even this low number is not truly accurate, Charles Krauthammer claimed: "the number of enrollees are not enrollees. They're people who put stuff in their shopping cart. Amazon would never call it a sale until you get a sale." The Obama Administration's goal was to muster 3.3 million sign-ups by January 2013.
| The number of people seeking health insurance under Obamacare more than doubled in November to around 250,000, according to a government report on Wednesday, showing the landmark healthcare law is still far from its goal of extending coverage to millions of uninsured Americans.
