An Obamacare enrollment center has opened on Hamburg Turnpike in Wayne.

The new facility, which is open until March 31, is part of a strategy to encouragement enrollment in Obamacare, NorthJersey.com reported Monday.

Only 3,300 New Jerseyans have selected a plan offered under Obamacare; 51,000 applications, covering 95,800 people, have been submitted on healthcare.gov, the mismanaged website the federal government set up to help Americans enroll in Obamacare, a report by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services shows. The site has been plagued by technical problems since it went online earlier this year. The problems were allegedly rectified Dec. 1, but error messages continue to pop up for some people.

The staff at the facility will use the website to enroll people in the plan.

Residents can walk in and get help at the facility seven days a week, but appointments are also welcome.

Enrollment applications must complete by Dec. 23. Coverage begins Jan. 1. Uninsured residents have until March 31 to enroll in the plan or face a tax penalty.

The site is located at 1211 Hamburg Turnpike, Suite 201. For more information, or to make an appointment, call 201-414-0465. It is open Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

This ought to be called the Bernie Madoff Insurance Act. Higher premiums for working people, much higher deductibles = less actual health care. Essentially, the middle class is being moved off of actual health prevention plans so that the middle class and Medicaid class can have catastrophe coverage.

I'm sure this cost wasn't built into the plan. So, the website doesn't work at your house, but will magically work at 1211 Hamburg Tpk? Sadly, this is only the tip of the iceberg. Wait until you or your doctor try to get reimbursed.

I can see the Millenials all in my neighborhood lining up ready to sign up. Not! Country deserves what they got for voting for the annointed-one. Not once --- but twice!
