Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Cross-posted at ACA Signups
Hell of a day so far:

More evidence that I won't get any sleep in April either...

Short version: Oregon, Massachusetts and now Maryland all may extend their QHP enrollment deadlines by some amount, in different ways.


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

Vermont hits 30K QHPs, 53.8K Medicaid, 35K SHOP (via Off-Exchange)?

Short version: Vermont released some impressive, but also confusing enrollment data, which suggests that they've broken over 100K total enrollments.

Pennsylvania: Chalk up 42.5K more Off-Exchange Enrollments!

Short version: Contributors dug up solid evidence of a good 42K+ Off-Exchange enrollments from Independence Blue Cross of Pennsylvania

New Mexico: ACA-enabled Medicaid up 10x (sort of) to 103K!

Short version: Not an actual 10x increase, just that I couldn't list most of NM's Medicaid data prior to this.

Don't Feed the Trolls: A Special Entry for a Special Visitor

Short version: Don't feed the trolls, duh :)

Oh, yeah...and this happened a few hours ago:

The Washington Post: This guy knew when Obamacare enrollment would hit 5M before anyone else. Now he’s predicting 6.2M.
