Obama.Care had a "special" enrollment period to pick up slack for people not signing up so fast after the "deadline" at March 15.

The $200 million website in Hawaii signed up nobody, as in "nobody".

The ad boys must have ordered from the wrong lunch menu flyer.



Fumble-Flop !!

Big Million$ going to IT specialists who specialize in Crêpe Suzettes.



The numbers are in: Hawaii’s Obamacare Exchange enrolled a grand total of ZERO — yes, zero people during its special enrollment period.

The Obama administration had implemented the special enrollment period from March 15 - April 30 to assist individuals who were unaware they would face a tax penalty for not having “qualifying” health insurance. In all, less than 250,000 individuals decided to enroll nationwide meaning that millions of Americans would rather pay the tax than enroll in Obamacare.

While Hawaii enrolled zero individuals and is the worst performing state, it is not alone. Vermont signed up only 97 households, while Rhode Island enrolled just 25 households.

That's because the state was smart back in the 70's and mandated that employers need to give health care coverage to all full time employees. I doubt many people needed Obama care at all. But zero is strange, you sure it's the final numbers?

Hawaii already has near universal health.


Hawaii's success owes much to the state's trailblazing health system and its long history of near-universal health insurance.

Forty years ago, the state became the first to require employers to provide health benefits, codifying a tradition that grew out of Hawaii's agrarian past, when sugar and pineapple plantations employed doctors to care for their workers.

That system has led to some of the highest rates of coverage and best access to medical care in the country.

"There has always been a mentality here that if you are sick, you go to the doctor. It's just part of the culture," said Myra Williams, 64, who has lived in Hawaii for 35 years and was recently treated successfully for early-stage breast cancer.

Nearly 99% of the patients at the cancer center at Queen's have health coverage, a level unheard of at most urban medical centers on the mainland.

If that is true, why did they implement it?



Cost to taxpayers per enroll: $23,899


Was it just an oversight on the part of the state?

Could they not have simply sent out a few thousand form letters?

This foolish madness is wearing me down. The unending stream of excuses and attacks, vitriol and denial are beginning to make me believe that there are no intelligent people left.

Perhaps we really don't have any non-arithmetically challenged citizens anymore. All of that was misappropriated funds, the state cannot be trusted to spend other people's money.

Perhaps we really do deserve obamacare and all of its administrative overhead.

Remember Obamacare was mandated to ALL states. There were no exceptions (of course Congress , several businesses , states that had a blue ranking , etc.) . I.e. They had no other choice but to implement it . Their exception though is they cant "force" anyone to accept it and sign up. There health care system is light years ahead of the other states and Obamacare. They almost have it right.

So the tax payers will just have to accept that their "contributions" (stolen loot) have been completely wasted on a bureaucratic technicality.

I hate getting into the weeds of these arguments, it serves no purpose and can give the impression that there is validity to the discussion and original ideas. There is none.

"Socialism, like the ancient ideas from which it springs, confuses the distinction between government and society. As a result of this, every time we object to a thing being done by government, the socialists conclude that we object to its being done at all. We disapprove of state education. Then the socialists say that we are opposed to any education. We object to a state religion. Then the socialists say that we want no religion at all. We object to a state-enforced equality. Then they say that we are against equality. And so on, and so on. It is as if the socialists were to accuse us of not wanting persons to eat because we do not want the state to raise grain."

There are several States with no exchange.



Hawaii is part of the Obama money machine.

Wow, so the state of Hawaii doesn't know how to use google, brilliant. Or, am I misunderstanding?

You need to check your sources...what was that source again?



Mar 9, 2015
The Hawaii Health Connector enrolled 30,100 residents in health insurance coverage as of Monday — 3,100 more than its goal set for the fiscal year.

The state's online health insurance exchange had set a goal of 27,000 enrollments by June 30, and aims to enroll 97,000 to 112,000 people by 2024.

Over 13,356 residents were enrolled during the three-month enrollment period that ended mid-February, compared to about 5,000 to 6,000 enrollees the year prior, bringing total enrollment to 23,000 last month.

The Connector has also facilitated Medicaid enrollment for about 60,000 individuals to date, according to Hawaii Health Connector Jeff Kissel.
