Bubble buster here - your 1st amendment rights do not apply to the comment section of a privately owned news web site. You can't tell "fire" in a movie theater and cry 1st amendment either.

Hopefully IDPH will be able to get a handle on this situation very quickly; the only hint of a silver lining to this story is that Legionnaire's is not an infection that can be easily spread via direct contact between one person and another. Infection control (especially when it comes to something as dangerous and potentially life-threatening as respiratory illnesses among an elderly population)…

Uhhh, TOL... I kinda hate to break this to you, but none of your rights are being violated in any way. First off, your comment looks like it was approved (I can see it; everyone else on the site can probably see it too). Your First Amendment rights have literally nothing at all to do with whether a privately-owned website (such as this one) allows you to post comments on their site. The Quincy Journal…

Only 7,000 Illinoisans enroll in Obamacare plans in first 2 months

1 year, 8 months ago from Chicago Tribune

The relatively low figures underscore the tumultuous first two months of HealthCare.gov

From from Chicago Tribune:

Through two months of open enrollment in new health insurance plans created under President Barack Obama’s health care law, nearly 365,000 Americans have selected policies, including 7,043 in Illinois, administration officials said Wednesday. 

The numbers, which include sign-ups from Oct. 1 through Nov. 30, are still short of the roughly 500,000 the Obama administration estimated would sign up in October alone, the first month of the new health insurance exchanges designed for consumers to compare and purchase health coverage. 

Officials did not break out enrollment figures by month, a decision they said would eliminate double-counting some consumers, who may apply, shop and select plans in separate months. Through Oct. 31, 106,000 Americans, including 1,370 in Illinois, selected policies, according to figures released last month. 

The relatively low figures underscore the tumultuous first two months of HealthCare.gov, the federal website that operates the online marketplaces for 36 states, including Illinois, which has been beset by technical problems that prevented many from completing applications.
