According to UK news reports, there were lots of "tire kickers" but nobody's buying as they say in the car business:
"California, the ultimate blue state whose federal lawmakers voted overwhelmingly in support of Obamacare, turned less than 1 per cent of its Web visits into 'Covered California' participants on Tuesday.
"We had over 5.7 million hits to our website as of 3 p.m. yesterday,' Covered California spokeswoman Kelsey Caldwell told MailOnline Wednesday.
'7,700 consumers began their application process yesterday. ... 4,143 applications are pending,' she added. 'We received 23,269 calls yesterday to our service center.'
Caldwell couldn't say how many of the 5.7 million website hits were from unique Californians. But assuming 712,500 online visitors saw eight different Web pages each, the sign-up rate was 0.58 per cent."
Now let me tell you this: 0.58 is a heck of an ERA for a major league pitcher. It is not a good signing up number.
California was not alone:
Maybe millions of GOP "extremists" were filling up the lines to mess up the machines.
At the same time, maybe a lot of people just don't plan do not plan to sign up. We saw a report today that will not make the Obama White House happy:
Maybe President Obama needs to go back on MTV and John Stewart because the young people missed the message that sign up started on October 1st.
You can hear CANTO TALK here.
