The Regime Has No Idea How Many People Have Signed Up and Paid for Obamacare

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: The fact that North Carolina Senator Kay Hagan was nowhere to be found when Obama went to North Carolina. That's the kind of thing that you might not get moved by, but in the deepest, darkest recesses of the liberal Democrat mind, that kind of thing is one of the greatest indicators of presidential trouble that you can find. When a Democrat senator up for reelection refuses a ride on Air Force One, refuses the joint exit down the stairs from Air Force One with the president, and then does not show up at the president's town hall, whatever it was on -- he was giving away, yeah, $700 million. She didn't want to be anywhere near it and this is the kind of thing that in the deep bowels of the Democrat Party, this is not good. Polling data is one thing, but that's real world, when one of our rising star senatorettes doesn't want to show up.

CMS Official: We Don't Know Yet Who Has Paid Their ObamaCare Premiums

And then, in addition to that, I was reading this blog, a Democrat super PAC is going to be running ads against Obamacare, and they are highlighting a Democrat woman from Arizona, a congresswoman named Ann Kirkpatrick, they're highlighting her criticism early on of Obamacare as a means of giving her credibility. So a Democrat PAC is prepared to start running ads against Obamacare. And then, I don't know how this is possible. Yes, I do know how this is possible. Washington Free Beacon: "Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services official Gary Cohen admitted to Rep. Gregg Harper (R., Miss.) that no one knows how many people have actually paid for Obamacare coverage."

This was said during a congressional hearing on Obamacare. Now, let me repeat this. Gary Cohen, who is an official at the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services,admitted to Congressman Gregg Harper (R., Miss.), no one knows how many people have actually paid for Obamacare coverage. Nobody knows. How's this even possible? Well, who did the website? In three years they couldn't even get it up and running.

And, by the way, there's another story today by another security firm advising people: don't go anywhere near HealthCare.gov if you value your privacy, because there isn't any. There is no protection. So you have a Democrat senator refusing -- she had to get her hair done instead -- to appear with Obama when he went to her state. You got a Democrat PAC running anti-Obamacare ads. And now a guy from the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services, "I have no idea how many people have actually paid for Obamacare coverage."

Now, you know by now that Obamacare was to be paid for early on by young people making a mad dash to sign up in a great patriotic fervor. Yeah, that's what the Regime thought. That's what all these Looney Tunes thought. Such patriotism, these young people eager to serve their country, eager for public service, eager to help their fellow man. They're gonna just make a mad dash to the nearest website and sign up for health care and pay whatever it costs. And that was gonna define that they're a good patriot. Now they don't know. They don't know the number of enrollees. They don't know who's signed up and who hasn't. They don't know who's got insurance and who doesn't. And they don't know who's paid.

They know. If the data in residing within any data base, its easily extractable and knowable. The administration just doesn’t want to report unfavorable numbers.

They don't care. The whole point of Obamacare was to ruin the private medical industry so Big Daddy Government can swoop in and save the day with total nationalization.

Obama couldn't care less about popular opinion. He is not running for office again and is set for life.

Well according to Nazi Pelousy it’s called the affordable care act — Not Obamacare and therefore she no longer cares.

Blue Cross here in California keeps extending the deadline for payment in order to be covered starting January 1st.

The deadline is now Jan 31st. They’ve yet to cash the payment I made in December, and I have no ID cards or benefits statement. The whole thing is a mess.

Gonna have to be one helluva subsidy to keep the insurers onboard with covering 2 or 3 million freeloaders.

Couple days ago I had to get a medical examiners card for my CDL, went to one of those 24 hour clinics, doctor asked if i had insurance, I said to him “Are you kidding?” I say I am paying cash, he laughs, “That works with us much better”.

We did get correct ID cards (the first set was erroneous) here in Washington State a few days ago. First clinic visit this morning, nothing special to report.

Washington has 73,000 paid commercial enrollees and 75,000 who still need to pay.

No, I'm saying that they never cared about who or how many would eventually sign up. They just wanted to destroy the current health insurance industry and take it over, by any means necessary.

It's a part of the global Left's strategy to knock the United States down a peg or three.

At one time, I always said that there would be a "rubber meets the road" moment with Obamacare. A patient would need to see a doctor, or a doctor's office or pharmacy would try to collect payment for their services. I thought that some of these "episodes" might actually get violent, and would surely make the evening news.

Now, there could be dead bodies outside of emergency rooms and hospitals, and I don't think the media would report it.

They know - and the fact they don’t want to report it should tell you all you need to know.

What a bunch of liars. Even if this data was stored in a flat file it could still be figured out. This info is in a DB and an entry level DBA could extract the numbers in a single afternoon; probably across lunch.

Absolutely.. There is no way an administration could cause THIS much damage if they were STUPID..
They are destroying the U.S. with clock work precision..

Meaning it’s On PURPOSE.... (for those in Rio Grande)..
Planned orchestrated and executed with fine malevolent detail..
“They” are not stupid at all.. brilliant really..

with help from most all media even Fox, hollyweird, all Unions, pretty much all academia, and a plethora of RINOs..

AND......... almost all republicans are too cowardly to revolt..
