The article is a litany of bad news couched in a rather vague headline. Not only are the sign ups a fraction of expected but most of the total enrolling through Cover Oregon are enrolling in Medicaid through an alternative portal.

I hope you voters how elected the group responsible for this waste will think a little harder next time. Let's get someone who has some executive experience outside of politics.
