Skip to comments.'The debate over repealing this law is over': Obama boasts 7.1 MILLION have signed up to Obamacare..
Posted on 04/02/2014 10:56:01 AM PDT by AngelesCrestHighway
A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America's health care system 'a lot better' in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans nowhere near 7.1 million have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

And we would expect HONESTY and LEADERSHIP from our POS CIC because....???
Does anyone really believe this will be repealed? Especially now that millions of people are using the system.
Once these entitlements are put in place, they rarely ever go away.
Are we allowed to complain about Obamacare anymore?
Or did he impose a new tax on complaining about it?
yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah.
The Dems ALWAYS say the debate is over when they don’t want to discuss it any more.
“Does anyone really believe this will be repealed? Especially now that millions of people are using the system.”
It’s been widely reported that the real number of paying people is around 800k. The MSM is giving them cover, but it can’t last. The budget will tell.
Go f*ck yourself, Mr. President.
Only 303 million more to go.....
The Democrat debate book:
Step 1: Declare debate to be over.
With those numbers, the debate is just now getting heated ... :-) ...
Even if ALL of them were on medicaid and would stay on medicaid,
any repeal effort would be met with the LIE of
“kicking people out of the healthcare system”
It’s not a tax so much as it is the penalty of having the full force of all the alphabet federal agencies brought to bear against you.
The stated goal was to insure the 47 million uninsured.
Now, around 6 million people with insurance lost it due to this law, and they heave 7 million signups on the day after which you would be subject to legal penalty,
and they’re declaring victory?
Like the guy who robs you forcefully and then says ‘The debate over stealing is over!’.
We’ll see, Obamahole, we’ll see.
I agree completely. Which is why I say that to run only on ODimwit care could keep the GOP from taking back the Senate. The time to fight this battle was a year ago. There was no coordinated effort. It was just people “shooting” wildly into the sky.
Pity we don’t elect smart leaders.
They counted Medicaid patients in state exchanges because the states converted the welfare program to what they are calling a state insurance program. In WA, the state insurance program is known as Apple Health and children are enrolled separately from their parents, greatly inflating the enrollment numbers.
lets see if the criminal liberal media treat this as they did the “Mission Accomplished” moment as obamacare continues to fail...
Settled Junk Science
They wish. The central theme of 2014 and 2016 is to repeal ObamaCommieCare!!
At the moment the only people supporting this scam are media and folks thinking it's all gonna be free.
Wait until all those women thinking their birth control pills and abortions are gonna be free learn what the term "deductible" means. Even a minimum policy with a $50 a month premium comes with a $3,500 deductible. Meaning that abortions will now be cash out of pocket and the patient will be on the hook for payment and debt collectors.
The piggies haven't started squealing yet.
Hey, so what if we counted as enrolled anyone who clicked on an Internet news story about Obamacare? Nitpickers.
And besides, we announced the number on April 1, so if they get exposed as bogus, we have an appropriate response prepared.
The only way the debate is over is if Obama has rigged the upcoming elections or if the stupid party let’s Ryan scare enough people.
Exactly. There were really only two opportunities to kill this monster. Chief Justice Roberts sold us out on the first chance. The second and final chance was to turn 0bama out of office.
I knew once both opportunities were lost, the game was over. The bill became entrenched in our society. It can no more be gotten rid of now than we could get rid of social security or medicaid.
Not gonna happen.
no it’s not....
Wow this is huge, I tell you. /s According the the U.S. government that is 2.23% of the population. Not to rain on Obummer parade but what % of those people have actually paid their premium?
So we are paying how much for that supposed 2%? Where is the Wall Street protesters? They can have a new slogan, “We are the “98%.”
And those 800,000 who are ‘paying’ are paying a small portion of the premium with the rest being sent directly from the Treasury to the “free market” insurance companies.
This entire boondoggle was a private deal between the powers that be in government and the powers that be in Big Insurance
They can only tax so much until the bottom falls out, and they can’t put everyone in jail when it does. So when there is no money to pay for it, O’care will either be repealed or go broke eventually-it will be an unpleasant trip to get there though...
We are unlikely to remove all of it because we are cycles away from the potential for 60 votes. We must fight for it and then dismantle it piece by piece. 2012 was the last chance to truly undo it in one signature. We know for a fact many signed up had better plans before, so we communicate undoing the damage and lowering costs and improving plans. Many who signed up did it out of necessity.
We’re going to have to deal with the damage done for a long time to get to a better system. This program can’t be fixed. It must be undone a bit at a time and get the tentacles of the bureaucracy out if it. It’s a fight that must be worth having.
Deductibles don't apply to abortions, immunizations, and one free visit per year. Can't stop the abortionists you know, too many minorities would be born.
Please, don't disgrace the office of the President by addressing Obamao this way.
The proper way to express this sentiment is, "Go f*ck yourself, a**hole."
It'll strangle itself.
How can that be, is it not a medical procedure?
and I’m not going to sign up for One Big A** Mistake America’s healthcare.
People should get on Christian Healthsharing if their other choice is going on the exchange.
The problem is....why is the government sucking up any money at all in the form of a penalty.
Not all medical procedures were created equal. You also get "free" mammograms, colonoscopies, pap smears, and a few other things for the "women and children" to be protected from the evil right.
Yes. In every state in which the people have voted against sodomite unions they try to term as “marriage”, the left hasn’t considered the debate to be over until they’ve judge-shopped a friendly judge and overturned the will of the people.
`Texas sharpshooter’ fallacy:
Close eyes, squeeze off six limp-wristed revolver rounds into the side of a barn.
Have your hatchet-faced Secretary of Health and Human Services circle the three bullet-holes with chalk.
Call press conference and triumphantly declare:
Because Baraq sez so.
Obama boasts 7.1 MILLION have signed up to Obamacare..
Because Baraq sez so.
Sorry. He's choppin' but no chips are flyin'.
Where does a person get all these things for free? If the policy has a deductible you haven’t reached does the chosen doctor have to accept you for these procedures or do you go somewhere else? How can this work?
I can find absolutely nothing. That's why he needs a good review of this so bad.....Even if it is just another lie.
‘The debate over repealing this law is over’
All those who are subsidized will be gifted to Medicaid and the Medicare Tax will double. Seniors are getting so scre*** over with Obama. Two years with no COLA
But ‘there are still no death panels,’ he joked amid laughter. ‘Armageddon has not arrived.’
That’s because you keep deferring it, azzhole....
WE ain’t stupid...only the idiots who nod in agreement with you are...
I agree completely. Which is why I say that to run only on ODimwit care could keep the GOP from taking back the Senate. The time to fight this battle was a year ago.
No, I would respectfully contend that the time to fight the battle against Obamacare is NOW, more than ever. Just wait until this evil Marxist regime decides to stop granting any further delays and waivers, thus rudely awaking tens of millions of Americans for the first time to the horrible reality that their health insurance premiums are soaring, they’re no longer allowed to keep their doctors, and/or losing their existing health plans altogether and facing IRS penalties. A huge chunk of the law hasn’t even been fully implemented yet and that happens to represent the massive amount of excrement just waiting to hit the fan!
The guy is really starting to scare me. He's out of touch with reality. Big time.
“He’s out of touch with reality. Big time.”
please see post 48
Slavery and Prohibition being two. The boi is an a-hole.
