Obama claims 'more than 100 MILLION Americans' have enrolled [in Obamacare]
Daily Mail ^ | November 18, 2013 | David Martosko

Full title: Obama flubs during health care conference call with community organizers, claims 'more than 100 MILLION Americans' have enrolled

President Barack Obama told a conference-call audience of progressive volunteers on Monday evening that 'more than 100 million Americans' – in a nation of less than 314 million – have successfully signed up for health insurance via the Affordable Care Act.

And at a time when his signature legislative initiative's website has made the White House the butt of jokes, the website hosting the conference call was plagued with its own connection errors and other malfunctions.

A weary-sounding Obama made his gaffe during the call, hosted by Organizing For Action, the nonprofit successor to his campaign organization Obama For America. The group claimed 200,000 people managed to listen, aided by an RSVP process that included a fundraising solicitation.

That number is important and has been used within the white house. Probably the number of people they expect to force into a one payer system.

It’s hard to remember all these stupid numbers that the staff keep referring to. You sit there for twelve hours a day....getting six hundred different statistics thrown at you, and feel lucky if it’s a golf afternoon.

100 million people??

That’s possible. That is, if you count all 57 states.

The same as his “Porkulus and Son of Porkulus” saved and created 100 million jobs. That anybody still got a job at that time was due to HIS generosity.

We’ve heard this fantasy before, too.

“gaffe”???

It’s a lie.

It’s a brainless, reflexive lie, stupid even by 0bama’s standards.

The man is allergic to truth.

Come on. Give the poor guy a break. It was just a slip of the tongue.

Obviously, what he meant to say was that 100 million people will lose their health insurance.

“the website hosting the conference call was plagued with its own connection errors and other malfunctions.”

Is the DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) sabotaging Obuma?

You have to read the article carefully. In the title they say "enrolled", but in the article they say "filled out an application"

That was one of the major screw ups with the website, which required that the application be filled out before the applicants could browse the plans. Of course there were many, many people who were not potential enrollees but filled out the application only because of curiosity about the plans, so that number of applications is probably not an accurate number.

Obumbles lies get bigger and bigger, and now this morning the NY Post reports that the pre-election jobs number in September ‘12 was faked to look better than an 8.1% unemployment number. Of course, everyone knew 7.5% was impossible, but none of the mdm was interested in challenging this pre-election whopper.

This administration lied its way into re-election, knowing that the huge Ignoramus Bloc in their base wouldn’t care what they said because all they wanted was to keep their place on the Federal Gravy Train.

From the article, allegedly a direct quote of Dear Leader:

" 'in the first month alone, we've seen more than 100 million Americans already successfully enroll in the new insurance plans.'

It wasn’t a “gaffe” - it was a lie. He has had a lot of luck with getting his lies into circulation through the simple means of just saying them with a straight face, no matter how unattached to reality they might be.

It works with people who get all their news by reading or hearing the headline only. One or two words get implanted in their brain, lie or not. And that’s what Obama hopes to do with this never-ending stream of lies.

I've never seen any population stats on the other 7 states. They must be pretty crowded.

The actual number is only 100 THOUSAND - but that is ‘enrolled’ not people who purchased and paid for it.

How many purchased and paid for it?

I am guessing less than 1000

Maybe they are considering anyone who has decided to pay the Obamacare tax rather than getting insurance as “signed up for Obmacare”.

It’s still not 100 million, but you never know how they will come up with their “honest” numbers. I could certainly see them saying those people paying the tax are funding Obama care so have “bought into it” in the way which they decided was best for them.

Remember, “Never let a good crisis go to waste”? By throwing around all those confusing numbers, no one can determine what is the correct, imagined or “REAL”.

Obama and the Dems just SWAG numbers.

And why not? They never get challenged by the fact-checking {snicker} media.

Reminds me of his claim that 10,000 people were killed by a tornado in a Kansas town with a population of 1,000 in 2007.

When does a SWAG number become an outright lie?

Right.

So really, he’s blithering. He doesn’t know (or care) to distinguish truth from falsehood, he just says whatever is convenient. That makes him a liar and a bullshitter. He’s also a marxist ... and DJ Taylor makes an excellent point in #25.

From end of article ...the usual well funded progressive groups, community organizing to push agenda:

… During the call,Organizing For Action executive director Jon Carson announced that 'at the national level' his organization would be 'partnering with fantastic progressive organizations' to persuade more Americans to enroll in the Obamacare exchanges.

He named the Center for American Progress,Planned Parenthood ,the Service Employees International Union and Enroll America
