Cue the Blondie lyrics: One way or another I’m gonna find ya, I’m gonna getcha getcha getcha getcha, One way or another I’m gonna win ya.
Connect for Health Colorado (the exchange) CEO Patty Fontneau is going to get young people to sign up one way or another, according to The Denver Post story about the March 31st Obamacare non-deadline deadline. Here’s her creepy announcement:
“We still have lots of people who are uninsured. We know that,” Fontneau said. “We’ll reach them over time — through cultural influence, through peer pressure and, ultimately, though penalties.”
While the enrollment numbers for the Colorado exchange have not yet been made public, her couching doesn’t inspire much confidence in the efforts. Last we checked, the exchange hadn’t even enrolled the number of people who lost their health insurance due to Obamacare yet, which means the program is still in the hole. And, Coloradans are still left uninsured.
No word on whether Fontneau will “drive past your house”, “follow your bus downtown” or “find out who ya call”. Wait. Actually, if they’re using the Obamamachine, that last one might not be accurate.
Oh, and no charge for the earworm. We’re generous like that.
