RUSH: It is an all-out Regime and media swarm on Obamacare. We are being pummeled. We are being beat upside the head. We're being beat on top of the head. They're hitting above the belt and below the belt. They're creaming us out there. 'Cause guess what? They hit their seven million. Overnight they got something like five million people to sign up. They got their seven million. The media's so excited. ABC News and Washington Post, in a piece de resistance, has a poll out that shows for the first time ever a plurality now favor and want and love and like Obamacare.
It is a miracle and it has all happened against all odds. Every bit of news prior to today was nobody happy, falling apart, premiums doubling and copays and deductibles tripling. Nobody being able to keep their policy. Everybody unhappy. People deciding to choose to pay the penalty. A lot of people being canceled and no replacement policy. And we go from that in one overnight to everybody now -- well, a plurality of people love Obamacare. No, it's not an April Fool's joke. Seven million people, they got it, and you know why it happened? You know, Kathleen Sebelius says it was the Between Two Ferns appearance that did it. Obama appearing on that Web TV show with Zach Galifianakis is what turned the tide. They saw the bump from that Internet talk show. That's what made it all happen. It's the most amazing thing.
Folks, we're being double-teamed, triple-teamed, tag-teamed. It's just unbelievable how they have arrayed and aligned their forces, and they're just saying whatever needs to be said. It doesn't matter what the facts are; the facts don't matter. Lo and behold, the Regime has hit its target of seven million Obamacare sign-ups. Let me ask you a question, though, seriously. Was there ever any doubt that they would reach this number?
See, this is where we get trapped and we never learn because I guarantee, some of you thought that there no way they're gonna be able to get seven million by the deadline, not mathematically possible. Based on the supposed factual news that we had yesterday, the day before that, last week, that it wasn't possible. I mean, what about all the news that they don't know who signed up? What about all the news there is no back end on the website? What about all the news that they can't figure out who's paid? What about all the news that the people who've signed up don't know if they have paid and don't know that their payment's been recorded?
How about all of those news stories that were just as recently as last week and, in fact, as recent as the weekend and Monday? They couldn't tell how many people had signed up. They didn't know how many people had paid. They didn't know how many who had signed up or visited were uninsured. They didn't know any of that. And all of a sudden yesterday F. Chuck Todd comes out and says it's un-repealable 'cause they hit the six million number yesterday. And then today and last night, the Regime is out, and they've hit their seven million Obamacare signup target. I guarantee you it's not possible. You can't tell me that this is real, and these people have been known to doctor the numbers.
Is there any doubt they were gonna do this? See, I think people are surprised. I think a lot of people on our side thought this day was gonna come and go and there probably wasn't gonna even be any mention of Obamacare because it's so dismal, such a disaster, they're so short of what they needed. And, remember, we've had unending news. I mean, I don't want to repeat myself, but I've recounted all of the most recent news. No back end; don't know how many people have signed up; don't know how many people have paid; don't know how many people are uninsured. They said they had five million, but we didn't know how many of those were real. And so people, I think, were expecting another day with no significant news on Obamacare.
Folks, the media is as happy as I've seen them in a year. They just can't contain themselves, all over, no matter where you look, they're just thrilled, they're excited. The Obamacare number has been reached no matter how much they had to cook the books. H.R. just mentioned this to me in the IFB, but I'm reminded of the way the unemployment rate went down to the number it needed to be before Obama got reelected. A president had never been elected with an unemployment rate higher than 7.5 or 7.8%. And I told you a year out that by hook or by crook the unemployment number was going to be below 8% going into the November 2012 election, and, lo and behold, it was. It's like magic, almost like magic, these things always work out for Obama, especially when his team is the one producing the numbers.
Isn't it amazing how this works? They have literally come from the gutter all the way to universal love and support, and they did it in one day. The ABC New/Washington Post poll, the actual Obamacare sign-up's now reaching seven million, and I got sound bites these people are gloating like crazy. You're gonna love that. I wonder if that magic number of seven million wasn't derived from the fact that five to six million would lose their health insurance because of Obamacare. So they had to have a figure, they had to have a number that would top that six million policies being canceled, so, voila, there has to be seven million sign-ups in order to cancel out the six million who've been canceled. In order to make it look like there's a net gain, in other words.
Yes I do. I think God will bring enough people to their senses to stop the insanity and keep free America going for awhile longer. It may get worse before it gets better.
The seas are receding.
The earth has begun to cool.
zact same thing leading up to his re-election; promises up the ying-yang about unemployment ending up under 9% —sure enough, a couple days b4 the stolen election the number maaaagically dips below 9% —golly!
More for the Navy:
He’s re-classifying minesweepers, hospital ships and coastal patrol craft as COMBAT vessels so he can cut the navy more but make it seem like nothing bad is happening.
LOTS of other stuff, too.
You have a better chance of learning where bronco bama was born then finding the truth of how many have signed up.
What the WaPo believes, now that's something.
I read that another U.K. based newspaper had researched this a found the number to be more like 850K not anymwhere near 7M
YESSS!!! (With apologizes to Al Michaels).
Even if they did hit the number, the only reason that was accomplished is because people had to sign up to replace their superior former plans that were cancelled and to obtain Medicare.
