HAWAII OBAMACARE SPENT MORE PER ENROLLEE THAN A NEW BMW
Breitbart ^ | April 1, 2014 | By Wynton Hall

Posted on 04/01/2014 6:11:51 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

President Barack Obama's home state of Hawaii's Obamacare exchange spent $35,749 per enrollee, a sum greater than the price of a new 2014 BMW 320i sedan (MSRP $32,750). "Just obscene amounts of money have disappeared into these state exchanges for very little actual performance," said American Commitment President Phil Kerpen. "You just have this huge duplication and waste in places like Hawaii and Oregon."

A CNBC analysis ranking taxpayer-funded federal expenditures on Obamacare found that Hawaii enrolled just 5,744 people through its Obamacare exchange at a cost to taxpayers of $205,342,270. The second-worst performer was the District of Columbia which spent $20,499.37 per enrollee. DC bagged $133,573,927 to sign up just 6,518 people.

CNBC says that the national average cost per enrollee is $6,894.05. However, the number of those counted as enrollees that have actually activated their coverage by paying their first month's premium is presently unclear...

It would have been a lot cheaper to just insure the uninsured. It’s a shame when straight forward Socialism is cheaper than what we’re doing now.

Money funneled to interests that may give back to the DNC at election time?

That’s the norm when government gets involved

That’s the overhead just for signup. That’s the overhead on the most mundane aspect of this “statute”.

I can't grasp how the people involved, could have allowed themselves to search for ways to frivolously dispose of such vast amounts of money.

The effort and work, and personal greed and corruption involved, to waste hundreds of millions of dollars by the individuals involved, must be epic, I wouldn't let those high ranking, highly paid, respectable, upper middle class, and upper income people, house sit for me, or trust them anywhere near my personal belongings.

As you’re doubtless aware any business that throws money around like that for no return...soon no longer qualifies as a business...

Well the LowInfo Voter get this news and will they care?

The taxpayers of those states should be storming their legislature over this.

Maryland’s exchange has been so disastrous that it’s being investigated by the HHS Office of the Inspector General.

I told a co-worker that last year. All the money they spent on a useless website and all the TV and radio commercials could have provided coverage for all uninsured for a few years.

He didn’t believe me until his insurance went up. He was an Obamacare cheerleader but very silent these days. Me and my buddy needles him about it every chance we get.

Hopefully the market will find a solution. Docs who will work for direct pay at reasonable rates like back in our parents days.

How the heck did they pay for our deliveries without insurance?

Before the huge increase in cost of.. insurance....yes Malpractice Insurance...Physicians yearly costs just to keep their practice Open were not nearly as staggering as they are today.

Today even Lawyers have malpractice insurance. I was once employed by a firm who were experts at legal malpractice law..

Under the Clinton Administration and his Democrat congress, it was anyone earning $30k a year.

And it was utterly foreseeable that what was being said was junk. Point that out and ask him what made him believe it. Maybe the light will come on.

While there is that too, regarding the malpractice insurance - regarding health insurance, remember that this years figures were the Introductory Rates. Expect next years numbers to be worse, possibly much worse.

As long as the “GimmeDats” get “free stuff” they don’t care how much the government spends.

Obamacare needs to be called out for what it is: “Socioeconomic Fascism!!”

It is a war of words, and so far, the liberal swine have won the battle with slick dishonest catch-phrases like:

“affirmative action”
“affordable care act”
“tolerance”
“diversity”
“inclusion”
“income inequality”
“social justice”

Who is in charge of coming up with equally convincing catch-phrases for the conservative side of the battlefield??

-—”GimmeDats” is one of the best phrases we need to start using.
-—”Socioeconomic Fascism”
-—”Greedy Liberals” (after all, they are the greedy ones, not people who want to keep their own hard-earned money)

Additionally, the word “Liberal” has been hijacked by the Leftist Marxists.

There is nothing “liberal” about today’s Democrats. They don’t want individual freedom.

In reality, today’s “Liberals” have nothing in common with “Classical Liberalism.”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classical_liberalism

Even the strong-on-defense JFK Democrats wouldn’t even recognize today’s fascist liberals.
