Gotta watch for that overwhelming rush of consumers for obamacare.
Check this out:
The White House is delaying a planned ObamaCare marketing campaign because it remains fearful that a rush of consumers to the troubled HealthCare.gov website would overwhelm the system.
According to a New York Times report on Wednesday, the Obama administration is trying to strike a balance between the push for a diverse pool of healthcare enrollees, and the reality of what the problem-plagued website can handle.
The first month’s enrollment numbers were embarrassingly low because of the website’s problems, and the administration needs a diverse group of young and healthy consumers to sign up so premiums don’t spike in 2015.
The Times report is the latest frustrating news for supporters of the Affordable Care Act, who have consistently been assured by the administration that the website would be able to accommodate the vast majority of consumers by Nov. 30.
