(NaturalNews) It won't be long before the March 31 Obamacare enrollment deadline arrives, and the latest data still show that very few people have signed up for the scheme. In fact, according to recent figures put out by the Obama administration, there have only been about 4.2 million total enrollments logged in healthcare exchanges across the country, and of these only 3.3 million enrollees have actually paid their premiums.

As of March 1, less than half of the sitting government's projected 7 million Obamacare enrollments have actually materialized, and fewer still have followed through with actually paying for their Obama insurance. Based on data collected from the Obamacare marketplaces in California, Connecticut, Maryland, Nevada, Rhode Island, Vermont and Washington, less than 80 percent of Obamacare enrollees have thus far paid their insurance premiums, with no system in place to actually track these payments.

According to the UK's Daily Mail, fewer than 1 million Americans signed up for Obamacare during the month of February, despite aggressive marketing campaigns that aired via television, radio and social media. Even a recent publicity stunt on the internet mini-show Funny or Die, where Obama hounded the public to sign up for Obamacare, failed to push enrollment numbers toward the administration's goal.

More than 80 percent of Obamacare enrollees previously had health insurance

Because of this, the administration has had to readjust its projected enrollment outcomes and even twist the numbers to make it look like more people are complying with the healthcare takeover than actually are. Obama and co. have also glossed over the fact that most of the people signing up for Obamacare are people who previously had insurance and were forced to adopt the new plan

"[O]nly 27 per cent [sic] of new enrollees -- or 1.14 million of the total announced Tuesday -- were uninsured before they signed up," writes political editor David Martosko for the Daily Mail. "Millions of insured Americans received cancellation letters from their insurers in October, November and December, spurred by the companies' recognition that their existing offerings didn't satisfy the Affordable Care Act's stringent minimum standards."

90 percent of eligible Americans refusing to sign up for Obamacare

Another zinger is the overall percentage of eligible enrollees who have actually signed up for Obamacare. According to an analysis conducted by the consultancy group McKinsey & Co., only about 10 percent of eligible Americans have opted to participate in the program thus far, a dismal figure that demonstrates the true extent of Obamacare's unpopularity.

"Of the 3.3 million people that the White House has touted as Obamacare exchange 'sign-ups,' less than 500,000 are actual uninsured people who have actually gained health coverage," writes Avik Roy for Forbes.com, noting that the most significant reason why people are deciding not to enroll under Obamacare is that they simply cannot afford the premiums.

Percentage of Americans with health insurance has dropped since Obama took office

With all this in mind, it is hardly surprising that the overall number of insured people in this country has actually dropped since Obama took office. The millions of hard-working Americans who were previously insured but who have now lost their coverage, as well as uninsured individuals everywhere who still cannot afford health insurance even under Obamacare, exceeds the number of people who are actually benefiting as a result of the scheme.

"[W]hile the percentage of uninsured Americans has dropped from 17.1 per cent at the end of 2013 to just 15.9 per cent now, that number stood at just 14.4 per cent before Obama took office," adds Martosko about the dilemma.
