Value Proposition

Another Obamacare success story:
Oregon, once touted as a model for President Obama's health care law, signed up just 44 people for insurance through November, despite spending more than $300 million on its state-based exchange.

The state’s exchange had the fewest sign-ups in the nation, according to a new report today by the Department of Health and Human Services.
That's about $6.8 million per signup. For the same price, you could get two Nick Puntos. One could argue that the success rate in Oregon is a little bit below the Mendoza Line.

But can Obamacare dive headfirst into first base and injure itself like Nick Punto?

Oh, wait, I think it did.

RA, I'm thinking that the Health Insurance Deform Act got injured by the donut as he warmed up in the on-deck circle, or possibly in the strenuous climb out of the dugout.

We can only pray that the wound will be career-ending.
