Reporters have been searching for someone who actually got through all the levels of the Obamacare website and signed up for insurance. One reporter said such creatures were proving to be about as rare as unicorns. But good news: one has finally been spotted. Officials in Delaware have identified Janice Baker, the owner of a small hotel in Selbyville, as the first person in Delaware to actually sign up for insurance through the government website. It took her two weeks of computer crashes and hours of waiting on the phone before she finally got through by deleting all of her brower’s history, cookies and temporary data. To be fair, she said she’s happy with the policy she finally got. The bad news: there are at least 90,000 people in Delaware alone who don’t have insurance. And as far as anyone can tell, Janice is not only the first to get through…she’s also the only one who actually got through it all.
You know, the more stories I hear about what people have to go through to buy insurance through Obamacare, the more I wonder why it was really necessary to create a massive new bureaucracy with thousands of IRS agents and a $640 million website that wastes weeks of your time. Wouldn’t it have been easier and cheaper just to let insurers compete across state lines, let private enterprise create websites like eShure, and just offer a subsidy for people with preexisting conditions? The whole Obamacare apparatus is so pointless, ridiculous and unwieldy, it’s starting to resemble something out of Monty Python. They actually did a comedy sketch once in which a man asked his insurance agent why he had to bring in a five-gallon urine sample. The agent said, “We wanted to make sure you were really serious about wanting insurance.” But I guess I shouldn’t repeat that on the radio. It might give the government ideas.
