Slow Roll Out For Heath Insurance Exchange in Missouri

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reports that only 751 Missouri residents selected a health insurance plan through a federally run online marketplace during the first month of its troubled launch. The department said the insurance exchange had about 14,100 completed applications from Missouri from October 1 to November 2. Those applications sought coverage for about 28 thousand people. The federal government did not say how many of the people selecting a health plan had started paying premiums. Nationally, HHS says fewer than 27,000 people signed up for health insurance through the federal exchange.

The protesters, the looters, the agitators, the Hands Up Don't Shoot movement, the dramatic announcement of the grand jury, the buildings up in flames. In the process, the community and image of Ferguson was destroyed.
