Re "With-7-million-enrolled-Obama Exudes Confidence About Health Care Law " (Page A1, April 2): I won't buy a car without a test drive, and I would not be confident until I had tested its reliability under several conditions. At this point, I have zero confidence in Obamacare for at least three reasons.

One, we do not have any accurate numbers concerning who exactly has signed up, and who has actually paid premiums.

Two, we have not tested the law's sustainability once those who have signed up come to terms with the high co-pays and deductibles.

Three, we have no idea whether or not the law is achieving its intended purpose to provide insurance for those who could not and/or would not,pay for it.

So far, all I see is smoke and mirrors. Wise and discerning readers will judge this law on its performance and not on the unsupported claims of the President, the democrats or the media.
