Guess How Many North Carolinans Have Signed Up For Obamacare Via The Website?

Tyler Durden's picture




 

North Carolina’s largest insurer is having its share of problems with the Obamacare website. As CBS Charlotte reports, internal emails obtained by WNCN-TV show that Blue Cross Blue Shield show that only 1,000 people had filled out applications as of October 15th. But perhaps most stunningly...only one person was able to successfully use Healthcare.gov to enroll in the new exchange. What is worse, they note that even that single person has not paid, which means the enrollment is not complete.

 

It gets worse...

Blue Cross Blue Shield found the entire system is so filled with glitches that the company decided not to upload data because it was afraid false information might enter its computer system.

 

And the emails reveal a scammer was using the insurer’s name to try to obtain personal information.

 

A person was making phone calls claiming to be with the “National Health Care Registry,” and falsely claim it was taking over healthcare reform contracts from the Blue Cross.

 

BCBS spokesman Lew Borman told WNCN-TV the company is working with the government to solve these problems.

 

“We’re hopeful that the issues can be resolved quickly so the Exchange will work seamlessly for our customers,” he said.

Its all about the stockmarket right now with so much everywhere not going the administrations way.  Gotta keep the stockmarket going higher to keep the dumb masses distracted.   Have to manage perception else fear truth of shithole is revealed...This is why govt printed money is ended up in the S&P and why it behaves on a separate planet compared to all other markets.  This is also why they are trying to cap gold.  It's all about perception management.   You can let it work for you or defeat you.  Disclosure: been buying good quality gold miners that are on bargain sale.

Lots of regular people own stocks because of the tech bubble. So it is likely a method of keeping not only the rich but also those that are still working with pensions and those that still vote from joining the revolution. Although in actual practice it is allowing those regular people the power to mount a defense against Washington D.C.

So it is all good. You can't stop central bankers without locking them up. It will take the regular people to persuade the military to do that.

In the colleges the UN is attempting to force the professors to teach propaganda and it is having the exact opposite results. They are all pissed and preaching revolution.

Washington D.C. is out of control and losing more control each day.

Not to mention whenever oshit gets in deep doo-doo, gas prices sell off. It's hit the 2's here in jersey at $2.96

Could you imagine the further frustration of $4.50 gas?

Sedate the masses.

Who is John Galt?

Non-participation in ALL flawed, captured, 'mandatory' systems is our birthright.  Grow your own, smoke your own, barter, use bitcoin, don't buy frankenfood, it all starts with a well informed citizenry.  Once the well-informed go John Galt, the parasites die.

Kind of OT but relevant to the conversation of our programming to be consumers:

My wife and I were at Costco last night and she pointed out the lit-up snowman display and said, "We should get that for the front yard."  

To which I replied, "You can make those out of snow, you know,"

She paused with her mouth agape, looked into my eyes and said, "What the fuck is happening to us?"

Then we left.

Yup! Just don't and quit paying on student loans as well. And depending on ones situation and the backup in the courts, quit paying your mortgage. Put the savings in gold, silver and lead. They stole the money in the fist place, you need to steal it back.
