"...roughly 50 percent of consumers who had supposedly enrolled for President Barack Obama's healthcare reform have missed their payment deadline for Jan. 1"
No big deal, right? After all, what's the worst that could happen?
"More than 6,400 people in North Carolina did not pay their first premiums for new ACA health insurance plans and, consequently, saw their coverage dropped"
So these folks went through the (not inconsiderable) trouble of wading through the wonky web site, verifying their income and other information, selecting a plan, and "pulling the trigger" on it, only to decide that "hey, it's just not worth it?"
And this is only folks in The Tar Heel State. Now multiply that by the other 57.
Not a pretty sight.
