Why So Few People Signed Up For Obamacare

It is certainly a novel (in the sense of fictional) explanation, from D.C.'s delegate to Congress. From December 30, 2013 Mediaite:
“The goal as has been said, it’s seven million people signed up by the end of March,” Lui observed. “Can that happen?”
“Oh, sure,” Norton replied. “When that fine is going to kick in, you’re going to see people trotting to sign on like you’ve never seen it before.”
“What we have been battling now is, first, every time the House couldn’t think of anything else to do, it had a big debate on repealing Obamacare,” Norton continued. “So, there are millions of people out there who think it was repealed.”
I have been pretty harsh on low information voters -- but now a Democrat is essentially saying, "Our constituents are so stupid and ill-informed that they mistook Republican criticism of Obamacare as being a repeal."  The only good news for Norton is that none of her constituents are well enough informed to realize how stupid she thinks they are.  Welcome to Idiocracy.

No, but they might have thought it was repealed based upon the Obama administration's repeated, actual "repeals" of portions of Obamacare. Does anyone truly think there are no more "repeals" of portions of Obamacare coming from the administration?

The employer mandate: Temporarily repealed.
The signup deadline: Repeatedly, temporarily repealed.
The individual mandate: Temporarily repealed for those whose insurance was canceled. Possibly for the rest of us early next year??
Etc.

But if only the evil and racist R's (by definition anyone that opposes the Messiah is racist--especially if the one who opposes is white) we would have got single payer and now have the health care utopia (NHS or whatever).

The above, IMHO, summarizes these people that support the great "O" and why they can't accept or see the flaws in it.

Since I'm white and am an opposer I must be a racist--oh well....I will be without insurance starting tomorrow thanks to the African-American "savior" but since I'm a racist by that definition I probably deserve it.
