Oregon Spends $300 Million To Sign Up 44 People For Obamacare
In case you are wondering, that's over $6.8 million per person. It would have been cheaper for Oregon taxpayers just to set up a million dollar trust fund to cover health insurance premiums for six times as many people.
From Washington Examiner:
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.
