Obamacare enrollment tumbles

Is anyone other than the Obama administration surprised that the actual enrollment report for Obamacare issued by the Centers for Medicare Services came out almost two million lower than the level claimed just last spring?  Investor’s Business Daily editorializes:

ObamaCare enrollment has fallen sharply since March, and that's before consumers confront huge rate hikes for 2016. These are not the signs of a successful program.

In its latest enrollment report, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services says 9.9 million were still enrolled in ObamaCare exchange plans.

That's almost 2 million fewer than the administration claimed in the spring, when it bragged that 11.7 million had signed up, and way below the Congressional Budget Office's earlier forecast of 13 million.

And if this year is anything like last year, that 9.9 million will dwindle further as the year goes on.

This turkey of a program costs more and delivers less than promised when it was passed without a single Republican vote. The Democrats own its failure.
