Despite a federal grant of $5.4 million to NH to coordinate 'outreach and education' for Obamacare, only 269 Granite Staters have enrolled.

As reported in the abysmal numbers just released this afternoon from the Obama administration, fewer than 27,000 American's signed-up for the President's signature program in the 36 states relying on the glitch-ridden website. States running their own enrollment systems signed-up approximately 79,000 - for a total enrollment of 106,000 Americans.

In New Hampshire, only 
269 Granite Staters have 'selected a marketplace plan' between October 1stand November 2. That is despite a federal grant of $5.4 million provided to New Hampshire to sell Obamacare to Granite Staters, or to 'coordinate outreach and education efforts' as the Obama Administration likes to call it (this information was provided to Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire via an email from the Office of Regional Administrator, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services).

These numbers pale in comparison to the over 
5 million Americans who have had their current private insurance plans canceled as a result of Obamacare. In New Hampshire, at least 22,000 Granite Staters have been kicked-off of their plans due to the failing law supported by Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, Rep. Carol Shea-Porter and Rep. Annie Kuster.
 
Derek Dufresne, Spokesman for Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire, released the following statement:

"Despite over $5 million in grants to sell Obamacare to Granite Staters, less than 300 New Hampshire residents have 'selected a marketplace plan' thus far.  With today's abysmal numbers released from HHS, no wonder Sen. Shaheen, Rep. Shea-Porter and Rep. Kuster are running away from the failing law and offering up phony legislation for political points that does nothing to solve the disastrous effects of Obamacare.

"New Hampshire knows the three aforementioned elected officials are responsible for Obamacare. It is time they join a majority of their constituents who continue to ask them to repeal Obamacare and work on free market healthcare solutions rather than another big government disaster."
