Katty Kay: 'Amazing How Quickly We Are Starting to See the Obamacare Story Change its Tone'
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 02/14/2014 5:17:51 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest

You know this is the story the liberal media is dying to tell: Obamacare--The Triumphant Comeback! So like the dove returning to the Ark, there was the BBC's Katty Kay, guest-hosting today for Mika Brzezinski on Morning Joe, first to proclaim the good news.

Based on the latest enrollment numbers, Kay enthused "amazing how quickly we are starting to see the obamacare story change its tone." Really? Tell us, Katty: of the people who have enrolled in Obamacare, how many have actually paid their premiums? And what percentage were healthy young people, needed to avoid an actuarial disaster? Take your time; we'll wait.

View the video here.

This is the story: the MSM is dying

With intentional disregard for context, just wanted to emphasize what you said.

As long as this ridiculously-named Brit gets her free Botox, she’s gonna support Obamacare.

LOL!!!

I'm seeing die hard liberals in public forums screaming "bloody murder" over obamacare tyranny. It's an outright, open and still bleeding while twitching on the ground disaster.

But it was gratifying to see those who so willingly inflicted this crap on us crying out in pain from their stupidity.

And I can honestly tell you, the didn't even come close to associating "cause and effect". Sad...

Is this really a shock? If Obama promised to show up at every voter’s house and beat them to death with a hammer the MSM would report that it as good news. Obamacare has been spun by them from day one as being a miracle of modern achievement. They will come he to Momma and resume their quest convince Americans that up is down and down is up.

FoxNews just reported that the insurance industry claims the 3 million enrollment number released by the FED is erroneous. It is exaggerated by 10-25%. And up to 30% of those who have enrolled have not paid any premiums. Only some 25% of those enrolled are younger people who are needed to pay in to provide medical coverage for older.

Conclusion:

[They are SWAGs, like the BLS weekly jobless numbers and the monthly job creation numbers.]

IIRC there was a thread here yesterday with an article showing that the "We're meeting our goals!" claim is actually based on the CBO LOWERING it's enrollment projections.

Obama’s plan to nationalize healthcare is working by convincing doctors to abandon their private practice for a steady job in a hospital.

U.S.
Apprehensive, Many Doctors Shift to Jobs With Salaries

By ELISABETH ROSENTHAL
FEB. 13, 2014

Launch media viewer
Dr. Suzanne Salamon, with a patient at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, said she has had trouble filling a prestigious fellowship because of relatively low salaries. Katherine Taylor for The New York Times

American physicians, worried about changes in the health care market, are streaming into salaried jobs with hospitals. Though the shift from private practice has been most pronounced in primary care, specialists are following.

The death knell for OCare will happen later this summer. With the greatly inflated premiums and deductibles required by OCare, around the July-August time frame, people will have to start making decisions such as, pay mortgage or OCare?

People will stop paying their premiums and the ins companies will start getting desperate.

I fully expect the media to ignore this situation through the election. After the election it will be, ‘Oh my, who knew that people would stop paying their premiums’.

The natural conclusion to be drawn by the media will be that white people stopped paying their premiums because they hate a black pres__ent.

Obastard will issue an EO prohibiting insurance companies from cancelling policies for non-payment. Make book on it.
