About that California healthcare exchange 'success' story

Hugh Hewitt:
...
Eight weeks in, in a state where a million plus "folks" -- the president's term for the ruled, replacing citizens -- have received cancellation notices, CoveredCA.com has 80,000 "enrollees." None of the 80,000 have yet paid a bill from their new insurer. No one has yet, in fact, received a bill. But they are all "enrolled." Another 250,000 have been to the website and "begun an application."...
...
... in all of October, less than 1,000 people listing Spanish as their language of choice enrolled at the site.
...
... CoveredCA.com has no projected mix of applicants necessary for sustainability of any of the policies. None. Almost everyone in American who follows the story even a little knows that "adverse selection" will likely cripple Obamacare if the young and healthy simply refuse to be drafted and pay their insurance bills and pay their fine instead. (Or not pay the fine, hoping that the government so inefficient to expend $190 million without a projected CPL isn't likely to be excellent in the ways of finding the non-compliant.)
...
That is some success.  Government just is not very good at running a big business like an insurance exchange, even when the website "works."  The numbers just do not add up and I suspect they are not looking at adverse selection because they do not want to know.
