David Ripley: Idaho Enrollment Continues to Be Pitiful

December 22nd, 2013 by Halli

Idaho Chooses Life

The Idaho Insurance Exchange, a creature of ObamaCare, reports that it has enrolled just 1730 as of the start of this month. That figure represents just 4.3% of the total expected.

What is not clear from the data released is how many new Medicaid applicants have been processed through the exchange apparatus created by Gov. Butch Otter. Look for substantial budget issues to emerge in the next legislative session as more welfare recipients swell state costs.

If the start-up costs of the Idaho Exchange are $20 million, we have a real bargain at work: Taxpayers have only spent $11,560 per Idaho ObamaCare recipient. Wouldn’t it have been cheaper to simply buy them an old insurance plan? At least those people would have received actual benefits. As it stands now, all that tax money has simply gone into building a new bureaucracy designed to “serve” the uninsured by imposing ObamaCare on the citizens of Idaho.

Ya gotta love government.
