Congresswoman Jenkins on ObamaCare's Abysmal Enrollment Numbers

WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins (KS-02) released the following statement after the administration released the ObamaCare Exchange enrollment data from October today.

“Today, we learned only 371 Kansans have been able to successfully sign up for a health care plan on the federally-run ObamaCare Exchange, and only a mere 106,185 total Americans have been able to sign up on both the federal and state exchanges across the country. These numbers are abysmal; the administration has not met even 25 percent of its enrollment goal for the first month.”

“This law is badly broken, and I am deeply concerned about the impact this law is having on Kansans back home. We are six weeks in, and folks in my district are being faced with cancellation notices, and cannot find affordable, alternative plans like the president promised.  

“While only a few hundred Kansans have successfully signed up for insurance, one provider, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas, recently announced they are being forced to cancel insurance plans for nearly 9,500 customers, due to the new ObamaCare requirements. A 25:1 ratio of lost to gained insurance plans is indefensible. These numbers underscore the need for President Obama to join the bipartisan call for the administration to allow Americans to keep their current health care plans.”
