Skip to comments.Obamacare enrollment tops six million as deadline looms: White House (So What?)
Posted on 03/27/2014 2:00:35 PM PDT by AngelesCrestHighway
More than 6 million people have now signed up for private insurance plans under President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law known as Obamacare, reflecting a surge in enrollments days before the March 31 deadline, the White House said on Thursday. The milestone gives the White House some ammunition to use against Republican critics, who have described the program as a flop in the build-up to midterm congressional campaigns in November, when Democratic control of the U.S. Senate is at stake. Only 10 days ago, the administration had pegged enrollment at more than 5 million people, and enlisted celebrities and top government officials to try to persuade more uninsured people - particularly the young and healthy - to sign up. The last-minute boost has exceeded the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office's estimate that 6 million people would sign up in the program's first year, down from earlier expectations of 7 million enrollees because of problems with websites used for shopping for insurance.

BS! 600 MAYBE! FAIL!
I wonder how many of those were signed up through the US consulate in Mexico City?
2.23 %. Hey, that’s pretty good. (I found 313.9 million as the total population. I was a bit surprised because I thought it was more. But that probably does not count the 12-20 million illegals.)
But how many paid for it? That’s what counts—and the traditional definition of enrollment.
If it is the law, and by law people are compelled under threat of fines or worse to sign up for it, why are they crowing so loudly that 2% of the population supposedly signed up? And what percentage of those that signed up for obamacare those that lost their insurance because of obamacare in th first place? And one other statistic would be interesting, what percentage of enrollees got a subsidy?
What do you want to bet that all the MSM stations lead with this headline tonight, and go on and on about how successful 0bamacare is, how it allows everyone to have affordable insurance, the whole deal, neatly wrapped up with a bow? Plus they’ll give extra credit for the way that the enrollment has had such an amazing recovery since the initial rollout problems.
so ... now I have to ay for something because I DON’T want it.
how much not to get shot? not to have my car impounded?
Payees: 1 million
Eventually, the reality on the ground (actual paying people/mix of young to sick, etc.) will catch up with all the fake numbers and a major adjustment will occur. It won’t be pretty.
They are now counting cats, dogs, goldfish and dead 3d cousins.
I’ll bet they were scrambling all over hell and gone trying to dig up any bum who could spell his name...bus ‘em on in!
1 million Americans, 5 million illegals!
Free six pack of Colt 45 with each sign up!
this magic negro,
so dumb I bet he couldn’t harvest watermelon.
How many have paid their first payment?
How many will pay more than 1 payment?
Just proves Community Organizing qualifies you for nothing...!
Exactly!...I don’t trust any of this crap!
Actually. I don’t believe the numbers. Just like unemployment.
Free six pack of Colt 45 with each sign up!
Nope, nope, nope .... although I might deign to look at the website if given a REAL Colt .45 first.
“The milestone gives the White House some ammunition to use against Republican critics, who have described the program as a flop in the build-up to midterm congressional campaigns in November, when Democratic control of the U.S. Senate is at stake.”
How many Democrats will be using this “ammunition” in their campaigns this year? Repeating the lie often enough will NOT make it the truth in this case; the young people they needed to fiscally rape to pay for this exist only in memories from at least 10 years ago - today they can’t even find jobs.
What about the 90 million who may lose their insurance?
“”Cancellations: 50 million Enrollees: 6 million.””
Not to mention that there were 40 million uninsured in the country to begin with which made it absolutely imperative to pass the bill.....
Where are the remaining 34,000,000? When do we get to hear about the millions STILL WITHOUT HEALTH INSURANCE?
and the 42 who paid wont be able to find a doctor who will accept the plan ...
After hearing reports of the numbers from the individual states there is no way six million have enrolled. This is a flat-out lie from the White Hut.
Obambi and the Democrats are congenital liars and would not know how to tell the truth.
When I enrolled for my private insurance I was not enrolled until I gave them a check.
It’s hard not to conclude that they somehow had the Democrat operatives at the census bureau goose some of the numbers for them.
My question (unanswered) has always been — who were the 30 (or 48) million uninsured? Pre-ObamaCare, there were three tiers of people:
1) The Regular Folks: self-sufficient workers ->> had their own health care (individual or group)
2) The Old Folks: some retired super-rich, others mega-poor, most somewhere in between ->> all had Medicare
3) The Indigent Folks: the working poor and/or disabled, etc. ->> all had Medicaid
Into which category fell the supposed 30 (or 48) million uninsured?
