    Perhaps I misunderstood your question.

    I took "What's the "right" amount, I wonder?" to question what is the right amount that the federal government should spend on promoting Obamacare. That answer is $0. Why anyone thinks that it should be anything other than this amount (including the administration, who seem to think that Obamacare will work just dandy if they just spend a couple of billion dollars on a "PR campaign") is absolutely beyond me. It would be absolutely scandalous if the federal government spent even ten bucks "promoting" SSDI or unemployment or food stamps or Section 8 housing. Why in the blue fucking blazes do we have to not only have this disaster of a federal program, but also spend a shitload of money advertising for it? That's just insane.

    Taxpayers Shell Out $14,000 per Obamacare “Enrollee”

    Taxpayers Shell Out $14,000 per Obamacare “Enrollee”

    $5.2 billion for just 364,682 “enrollees”

    In her testimony before Congress today, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius provided an updated dollar amount for the cost of HealthCare.gov: $677 million. In addition to the $677 million spent on the federal Obamacare website, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has shoveled $4.5 billion of taxpayer money to promote Obamacare on the state level.

    HHS also released updated “enrollment” figures for Obamacare. According to the agency 364,682 people have “selected a plan” – the equivalent of putting an item in your online shopping cart and leaving it there.

    That means the taxpayer cost per “enrollee” is over $14,000.

    ($4.5 billion + $677 million = $5,177,000,000 ÷ 364,682 = $14,196)
    What's the "right" amount, I wonder?
