Never underestimate procrastination

With only a few days left to go before the March 31 deadline, there was real cause for concern that enrollment on the health insurance exchanges would not come anywhere close to the goal of 7 million enrollees. After all, between October 1 and March 21, fewer than 6 million Americans had enrolled. Some had revised the goals down to 6 million…a major blow. But more than 1 millionĀ Americans jumped on, as they often do, at the last minute, enabling the exchanges to exceed the original goal of 7 million. It just goes to show that it’s human nature to procrastinate.
