Skip to comments.Obama May Want To Put Cork Back In Champagne Bottle After He Sees These ObamaCare Numbers
Posted on 04/02/2014 2:37:04 PM PDT by NYer
Now that Obama has taken a victory lap and popped the champagne cork over hitting the ObamaCare enrollment goal, it looks as if it might be time to put the cork back in the bottle.
Results of a RAND Corporation study suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans nowhere near 7.1 million, as claimed by Obama had paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by the Monday night deadline. The study also indicates that only one-third of exchange sign-ups were previously uninsured.
Yes, millions of enrollees were previously insured, including those who lost coverage when their existing policies were cancelled because they didn’t meet ObamaCare’s minimum requirements.
Still, Obama claimed that “millions of people who have health insurance would not have it”‘ without ObamaCare. The numbers simply do not support that claim.
Moreover, he couldn’t pass up the opportunity to take a shot at Republicans “who have based their entire political agenda on repealing it.” Obama also thanked Democrats, who passed the “Affordable” Care Act without a single Republican vote.
“‘We could not have done it without them, and they should be proud of what they’ve done.”
Yeah, they’re proud as punch, Mr. President. We’ll see how proud they are as they run away from ObamaCare as fast as they can during this year’s campaign season.
By the way, in addition to subtracting the number of those who have applied for ObamaCare but not paid for it from the 7.1 million number the White House touts, there are Medicaid adjustments to be made to Obama’s fuzzy math as well.
So, while the White House will most certainly continue to pat itself on the back for a “job well done,” the only “job” is the snow job being perpetrated on the American public.
That Picture , LOL , would believe anything those 2 fools tell you ? Would you buy anything those 2 were selling ?
or put it somewhere else
When it becomes clear how many Americans were bankrupted
and murdered by ObamaCARE/RomneyCARE, BOTH Romney
and Obama will break open their champagne for their
I certainly wish 0bama would put a cork in it.
You mean we raised the Mission Accomplished banner too soon?
Just keep feeding them lies! It almost always works with the vast majority.
Interesting. He said he needed at least 7.1 million on the 31st of March and the MSM reports that 7.1 million have enrolled. Coincidence? But weren’t there 40 million uninsured the MSM was yelling about before? Where’s the rest of them? I like what Fallon said: You make a mandated and rejoice that it was followed.
As long as the MSM continues to lie and obfuscate, they do.
As Mark Levin said yesterday, even if the 7.1 million number of people enrolling in 0bamacare is correct, 6.2 million health insurance policies were cancelled because of 0bamacare. 7.1 million minus 6.2 million is 900,000.
This would be like if the Twins giving away 80% of their tickets WITH vouchers for free beer,filling up HALF the stadium , and then bragging they’ve sold out AND set a new attendance record.
I doubt obammy will put the cork back in. You see, obammy and his merry band of court jesters live in an alternate universe full of unicorns and rainbows. They will never believe their made up numbers are false.
Bingo! Rush Limbaugh addressed that today ...
Obamacare was supposed to insure 40, 43, whatever number millions of people who didn't have insurance. That's what Obamacare was supposed to do. Obamacare wasn't supposed to sign up seven million people. Signing up seven million people's chump change, irrelevant, it's embarrassingly insignificant. And yet they're all throwing themselves a party there in the Rose Garden. They're deluding themselves. I mean, you take the most rosy figures, they've only insured about six million, and I don't even think that's an accurate number. They don't even really know. But we'll give 'em benefit of doubt. They've insured six million, 4.5 million of 'em are Medicaid, that's not Obamacare.
So the mission was to insure 43 million uninsured, and they've got seven million signed up on a day dictated by law. They're actually celebrating people complying with the law as though this is some great sales job or massive job of great persuasion by Obama. Is it 47? The AP today are saying 47 million uninsured. "Status Update as Health Law Marks a Milestone." See? There you go. What milestone? We got 47 million uninsured! The number is growing after three years of Obamacare. Well, three years since passage. They're deluding themselves. They're again creating and living in a false reality. And they end up believing it, folks.
Presidunce & Vice Presidunce !!
Don’t get Rush down here unless I’m up at 3am and that’s only on a party night LOL!
He was ordered by his handlers to say Obamacare is settled science.
Republicans need Amnesty to win big in Nov.
It doesn’t matter how many people are intimidated by fear of the irs into signing up
It is an abomination and needs to be repealed
Goodness...what malignant fools! Does anyone believe anything that these duplicitous fools spew?
The DEBATE is OVER! Al Gore’s hockeystick got nothin on Barry. Barry is the true statistician. He can just say any number and it magically shows up on TV. Simply Amazing!
“Does anyone believe anything that these duplicitous fools spew?”
About 50% believe it, and that’s all it takes.
Just look at how easily these dismal numbers were spun into a victory celebration for B0 Soebarkah.
They will be relentlessly spinning before the election.
Factor-out the voter fraud and I’d bet is is more like 30% (see NC recent developments).
I was told (on another thread) that even though the lowest payers who have incomes below the poverty level still get policies with deductibles over $2,500 they don’t have to pay anything for abortions, birth control, colonoscopies and more. Does anyone know how this works?
You're online ... so is Rush! You can read the transcripts at his web site or follow his podcasts.
858,000? so your saying he lied!.........again
Does anybody have a rough idea how much government spent signing up all those people? It would be interesting to find out the cost per “new” subscriber.
I do at times.
According to Nancy Pelosi, "we won't know until the law is passed". The only person who has read the bill , is is Betsy McCaughey. I would suggest you begin with her web site.
