Skip to comments.'The debate over repealing this law is over': Obama boasts 7.1 MILLION have signed up to Obamacare..

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America's health care system 'a lot better' in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans nowhere near 7.1 million have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

And we would expect HONESTY and LEADERSHIP from our POS CIC because....???
Does anyone really believe this will be repealed? Especially now that millions of people are using the system.
Once these entitlements are put in place, they rarely ever go away.
Are we allowed to complain about Obamacare anymore?
Or did he impose a new tax on complaining about it?
yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah.
The Dems ALWAYS say the debate is over when they don’t want to discuss it any more.
“Does anyone really believe this will be repealed? Especially now that millions of people are using the system.”
It’s been widely reported that the real number of paying people is around 800k. The MSM is giving them cover, but it can’t last. The budget will tell.
Go f*ck yourself, Mr. President.
Only 303 million more to go.....
The Democrat debate book:
Step 1: Declare debate to be over.
With those numbers, the debate is just now getting heated ... :-) ...
Even if ALL of them were on medicaid and would stay on medicaid,
any repeal effort would be met with the LIE of
“kicking people out of the healthcare system”
It’s not a tax so much as it is the penalty of having the full force of all the alphabet federal agencies brought to bear against you.
The stated goal was to insure the 47 million uninsured.
Now, around 6 million people with insurance lost it due to this law, and they heave 7 million signups on the day after which you would be subject to legal penalty,
and they’re declaring victory?
We’ll see, Obamahole, we’ll see.
I agree completely. Which is why I say that to run only on ODimwit care could keep the GOP from taking back the Senate. The time to fight this battle was a year ago. There was no coordinated effort. It was just people “shooting” wildly into the sky.
Pity we don’t elect smart leaders.
They counted Medicaid patients in state exchanges because the states converted the welfare program to what they are calling a state insurance program. In WA, the state insurance program is known as Apple Health and children are enrolled separately from their parents, greatly inflating the enrollment numbers.
lets see if the criminal liberal media treat this as they did the “Mission Accomplished” moment as obamacare continues to fail...
Settled Junk Science
They wish. The central theme of 2014 and 2016 is to repeal ObamaCommieCare!!
