If it’s so much more expensive than what we anticipated, and if the coverage is not as good as what we’ve had, you’ve got a complete meltdown at that time.

John Boehner signed up for health care today. He used the D.C. exchange, and he complained the whole time.

Healthcare.Gov signups happening at far quicker pace, but …

  • 50k+ the number of signups the Obama administration has reported to Healthcare.Gov in the first two weeks of November.
  • 27k the number of signups the administration reported for all of October. That November is on pace to quadruple October is silver lining; it’s still significantly lower than the administration was hoping for. source

» Oh yeah, fun fact: Around 600 bugs are known on the site; about 200 have been fixed so far. So progress is still being made.

Want to be a Republican talking head? Now you can, thanks to this helpful internal House GOP memo acquired by the folks at Roll Call. It outlines in depth how good anti-Obama foot soldiers should go about demonizing the plan, and even contains a sample op-ed, presumably for Senators too lazy to write their own. The document also has a “fact sheet” with a lot of numbers in it; one number that’s missing is the percentage of Americans who actually support the GOP’s plan to repeal Obamacare (that would be 30 percent). source

Stuff you may have missed: November 7, 2013

In a landmark move for the gay rights movement, the Senate has passed the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, a bill (floating around in various forms since 1994) that bans discrimination against people on basis of their sexuality or gender identity. That’s the good news. The bad news is that John Boehner is sitting on his hands.

President Obama is really, really, really, really, really freaking sorry that the health care law isn’t working out like he promised.

Virginia has a new governor-elect, but the scandal around the current governor is just getting good. Too bad.

Microsoft has finally figured out that you can’t update a web browser every five years.

Legendary pastor Billy Graham just turned 95. He’s still kickin’.

The first day of Healthcare.Gov may have seen a single-digit sign-up rate

  • six the number of successful enrollments to Healthcare.Gov on its first day, according to a set of war-room notes taken on the morning of October 2. The notes, publicly released Thursday by the House Oversight Committee, also show a better but still incredibly low number of signups by the end of its second day—248 in total. A Health and Human Services spokesperson emphasizes the totals are not official. source
