How about those ObamaCare enrollments?

Is there anything the White House won’t either lie about or move the goal posts on about ObamaCare?


We’re in day two of the ObamaCare rollout and the White House is doubling down about their lies.

The seven million number came from the Congressional Budget Office not from the White House.

There’s no magic in the seven million number.

There IS magic in the idea that a million people signed up for insurance in December.

This White House spins like an F-4 tornado.

Again, since we’re a broken record, how many of the two million people who have supposedly “enrolled” have made their first payment. Sources from 14 states that have reported some information indicate that only half have made a payment. We would guess that is a very bullish number (as opposed to the numbers we get from the White House, which are bullsh**)

How many of the five million who lost the insurance plan they liked have been able to replace their insurance and are those people included in the two million who have signed up?

The be-all and end-all of White House statements has to be this one:


We don’t want to put out any numbers unless they’re absolutely accurate.


This comes from the same people who spent three years insisting that, “If you like your plan you can keep it.” “If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor.” “ObamaCare is going to save the average family $2,500 on their health insurance.”

And on, and on, and on.

2014 is going to be an interesting year.

    As the saying goes – if the numbers were good, we’d be seeing them plastered all over the nightly news. The media mavens supporting this … thing… would be shouting them continually.

    But there’s no real numbers – just vague generalities, without any details. How many have signed up? Two mil. Is that ‘signed up’ as in first payment, or ‘signed up’ as in “Hey, they visited the web site!”? Uh, we don’t have any numbers on that.

    How many have actually paid? (crickets)

    If someone’s trying to sell you something, but they won’t show you the numbers, at what point do you start going “Hey, maybe buying this thing isn’t such a good idea after all…”?

    Seven? One?

    Funny – I it was thirty million during the campaign. I guess those other 23-29 million people must have died due to lack of government-funded insurance or something.

    I think there is a problem with the 7 million number that nobody has picked up on. If you look at the CBO chart where it came from there is a little footnote that says “Does not include coverage purchased directly from insurers outside of the exchange system.”

    I don’t think the CBO accurately accounted for the number of people who lost their insurance.

    Did the Obama administration say anything that was true when ramming Obamacare down our throats? Remember when we were told that Obamacare would lessen trips to the ER? Appears to be one of the many “misstatements” from the administration:

    “Supporters of President Obama’s health care law had predicted that expanding insurance coverage for the poor would reduce costly emergency room visits as people sought care from primary care doctors. But a rigorous new study conducted in Oregon has flipped that assumption on its head, finding that the newly insured actually went to the emergency room more often.”

      What are you going to believe, scientifically analyzed data or obama’s infallible ideology? obama knows that his ideology is right. If things aren’t turning out the way he expected then the answer is not that his ideology is wrong, it’s that the implementation was not sufficiently left wing fascist.

        He just needs a little [well, maybe a lot] more of your money, and everything will be hunky dory.
