$5 says it’s 100,000. They’re a bunch of pathological liars and they lie big.

Since when did we trust the numbers coming out of this regime?

I’m saying the over/under for inflating the numbers is a factor of five.

You’re probably going to be proven correct on the 100K number. They purposely held off until they could report at least a 6 digit number to try and fool the folks. Most people will think its a big number since they have no clue as to what planned enrollment is.

The average person will hear 100,000 and think its a large number and that everything is on track.

They will count plans “in cart”, unique visits, causual hits, and finally does the government site have the intent you check in anywhere. This will be a bogus number for sure.

Will it be broken down by state, by plan, with demographics?

I bet it will include the 276,000 who visited the site but didn't complete an app.

Yep. I'd be surprised if the number of people who actually signed up and PAID is bigger than a single digit.

Remember the fraudulent “jobs created or saved” numbers that this regime trotted out to praise the wonders of their ill-fated ‘stimulus’ plan?

The same math-challenged and truth-challenged double- and triple-counting phonies that lied to us back then will be lying to us now.

From Glenn Beck's show:

“National Journal has a story out today talking about how presidents who aren’t running for reelection, history shows, they don’t rebound from losing approval rating,” Stu said. “So you drop in your approval rating, you can’t come back unless you’re running for reelection and that’s what history has shown.”

The article Stu is referring to, “Why Obama Won’t Bounce Back,” explains that history shows presidents who aren’t running for reelection don’t recover from drops in their approval rating. If you take a look at the Real Clear Politics average of the last year of the President’s tenure, the trend isn’t pretty.

“Okay. Now let me explain what this means. First of all, that’s an average… And if you look at that chart, it is a steep, steep decline,” Glenn said. “I told you before the election, you get rid of this guy now or you are going to see a long, national four-year nightmare because I think this guy could be impeached. I think he could be impeached on a lot of things.”

In the next 18 to 24 months, Glenn believes the President’s approval rating could fall to 20%. From the digitization of money to the unrest in the Middle East, the rise of the police state to a lack of jobs, Glenn explained just a few of the ever-growing problems facing this Administration. Add those factors to the failures of Obamacare and concerns over the size/scope of the NSA, and suddenly President Obama finds himself in a position that could very well end a presidency. So what happens next?

“So what happens? First of all, pray. I beg you to pray on your knees for the safety of this President. I beg you to pray for the Secret Service. I beg you to pray that everyone in Washington – Republican, Democrat, no matter who it is, that they are kept safe because there are crazy people out there. There are. And there are people filled with rage and hate,” Glenn said. “Please pray for safety on all leaders… no matter how you feel about them.”

“So now what are you going to do about it,” Glenn asked. “I would ask you that you become self-reliant. And what self-reliant means is you are not beholden to somebody for your education. You are not beholden to somebody for your physical, temporal, spiritual, educational wellbeing, that you are independent on all of those things. Can you do that? Are you that already? I challenge you to do that now. Those will be the ones that will lead the world tomorrow. And we can go a dark way or we can go a good way. I’m going a good way… The answers come from love and charity and being who Americans have always been. We will lead again.”

Yes they will in addition to having their in house minions feverishly creating thousands of phoney accounts.

This is too important for them to tell the truth.

According to the Reno paper this morning, NVHealth has signed up a whopping 513. Less than 1/2% of their goal. Ooops! But there are some in process.

So, if they count anybody who has put something in a shopping cart in these numbers, just pull up the pictures of the recent EBT malfunction at Walmart stores ... all those full carts, left in the aisles when the peeps ran for the doors when they realized the EBTs were working again and there would be no freebies. I suspect there are lots of abandoned ‘shopping carts’ on the Obamacare website and don’t be standing in front of the doors when the sale rings up on the register.

It will all hinge on how you define ‘enrollment’.
