The CTMirror ^ | April 2,2014 | Ana Radelat

Washington -- After the Obama administration announced Tuesday that more than 7 million Americans have registered for health insurance through state exchanges, Sen. Chris Murphy took aim at GOP opponents of Obamacare.

“All of the naysayers have been proven wrong,” Murphy said. “We are beating expectations.”

Hey Murphy, the chickens are enroute home to roost. Good luck when they arrive.

RUN HARD on Obamacare, Democrats. Tout your ‘victory’ in every single ad.

The Democrat game plan is very simple, and Republicans should just get out ahead of it, every time. The talking points for Republicans should always include “Get ready for the Democrats to tell you that what you see and think isn’t so. The Democrats only strategy is to lie about their failures, so know ahead of time that they are going to lie to you and tell you that everything is going fantastically. You know better. Don’t let them get away with lying to you, again.”

It’s always a bit dicey to defend a fiasco by asserting that the glittering failure is still ahead of expectations.since the majority opinion is that it cannot work and never will.

I watched a movie over the last two nights (it was a long movie) called “Downfall”. It was a German movie with English subtitles. It purported to depict the real state of affairs in Berlin and specifically in Hitler's bunker in April, 1945. It had been recommended by a noted historian for its historical accuracy.

I am not comparing BHO to Adolph Hitler. However, the attitudes of their sycophants was startlingly similar. Even as their world collapsed around them they still believed der Fuhrer was right. Goebbels and Hitler both blamed the German people for what happened.

The attitudes and actions of a true believer can be very destructive.

“All the naysayers have been proven wrong.”

So you can keep your doctor? And you can keep your plan? And we will save $2,500 per year? Oh. Wait.

The problems with Obamacare continue. This number means nothing.

And I love how a law that forces people to buy something is celebrated when people buy something. Itd be akin to having press conferences about the number of people at the DMV. “Wow look at the line at the registry. People love buying drivers licenses.”

BUT WHY? Democrats are congratulating themselves on passing O/Care. They think O/Care is wonderful...

ANSWER Democrats have been promised a piece of the action....there's billions to be made (plus they're plugging unsuspecting enrollees into Democrat voter rolls). The wire-transfers are going 24/7. Once those tax dollars are in the hands of the Dummycrat criminal hordes, the billions are untraceable.

================================================

ACA SEC. 4002. PREVENTION AND PUBLIC HEALTH FUND.

(a) PURPOSE. It is the purpose of this section to establish a Prevention and Public Health Fund (referred to in this section as the ‘‘Fund’’), to be administered through the Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Secretary, to provide for expanded and sustained national investment in prevention and public health programs to improve health and help restrain the rate of growth in private and public sector health care costs.

(b) FUNDING.—There are hereby authorized to be appropriated, and appropriated, to the Fund, out of any monies in the Treasury not otherwise appropriated—

(1) for fiscal year 2010, $500,000,000;
(2) for fiscal year 2011, $750,000,000;
(3) for fiscal year 2012, $1,000,000,000;
(4) for fiscal year 2013, $1,250,000,000;
(5) for fiscal year 2014, $1,500,000,000; and
(6) for fiscal year 2015, and each fiscal year thereafter, $2,000,000,000.

(c) USE OF FUND.—The Secretary shall transfer amounts in the Fund to accounts within the Department of Health and Human Services to increase funding, over the fiscal year 2008 level, for programs authorized by the Public Health Service Act, for prevention, wellness, and public health activities including prevention research and health screenings, such as the Community Transformation grant program, the Education and Outreach Campaign for Preventive Benefits, and immunization programs.

(d) TRANSFER AUTHORITY.—The Committee on Appropriations of the Senate and the Committee on Appropriations of the House may provide for the transfer of funds in the Fund to eligible activities under this section, subject to subsection (c).

=================================================

....the reasons for all those O/Care delays, fixits, exemptions, waivers, extensions, etc, are becoming crystal clear.

An alert Obama official looks for enrollees who've paid for insurance, who are actually insured, for millenials duped into
paying for other people's h/care and for the "underserved"....
who had no insurance before ACA took effect (sob).

Where’s the undisputable truth that 7 million have signed up? What about the other 40+ million who were in need of health insurance and still don’t have it? What about the millions who have LOST what health insurance they had? Sorry, I for one ain’t buyin’ OhVomit’s bullshit!

Seven million success stories. Obama says they are all giddy over their new health care.

The dems touting how great this has been remind me of the guy in a seven card stud game with an ace high hand looking at someone across the table with an open ended flush straight. After raising the bet and losing on the call when a flush is flopped, he believes he lost because the cards were obviously running against him not because he is a poor player.

What we are seeing is a game of psych ops. The Democrats are in trouble and they are desperate to fight some hope for 2014. We don't know if 7 million actually signed up and we know that only a few have paid. By throwing out that number, the WH is hoping to play a confidence boosting game. It may work in the short term but reality has a way of rearing it's ugly head Putting out a deep blue state democrat to lead the cheerleading is too easy. I want to see if Hagan, Landreiu(sp), ect are willing to join

These loser-LIBs are certifiably mentally ill and unable to not be liars. These morons produced fake numbers and now run around touting their “success”. One can only hope that their “success” will be defined as “losing their jobs in November”. They should enjoy their “victory dance” while they can.

They change their goalposts and fudge the numbers and then declare “victory”. What’s even more important is declaring the debate to be over.

Using their methods I am happy to report that my small business is now making millions (never mind that none of those invoices have been paid) plus I’ve lost 50 pounds and I’m dating Scarlett Johansson.
