Skip to comments.Great news: ObamaCare’s enrollment numbers are only about 33 percent bogus

No serious analyst believes the ObamaCare signup totals pushed by the White House are accurate. The media makes a pretense of relaying these numbers as though they were valid data, when every single reporter knows they are not. In this way, talking-point energy is generated; theres lots of chatter about 7 million signups on April 1, or 8 million today, or whatever figure the Administration is pushing out, but the caveats are muttered in a very low voice usually as a single sentence about how the Administration refuses to release the total of paid and valid ObamaCare policies sold, or their demographic breakdown. Video news reports frequently forget to mention these qualifications at all. Print reporters usually claim the total of paid policies is unknown, even though everyone knows the Department of Health and Human Services has the number. If it was good news, they would of course release it immediately.
Thanks to work by the House Energy and Commerce Committee, we have a better idea of why the Most Transparent Administration in History is guarding those figures as closely as Barack Obamas activities on the night of September 11, 2012. Previous estimates from the insurance industry held that 20 to 25 percent of the reported ObamaCare signups were unpaid and invalid, but the actual numbers from the federal exchange system turn out to be considerably worse:

Assuming 8 million is the number of sign ups on the site, then there are 5.36 million paid enrollees with 1.34 million between the ages of 18 to 34. Those are some pretty abysmal numbers.
And they do this why? As far as I'm concerned, a 'journalist' is nothing more than a subversive terrorist who has found out it is an easy living without much real work. How much work is it to take a talking points fax off the machine each morning and feed it to their teleprompter, word smith it into their commentaries, etc.?
Scumbags, who in a better world would be relegated to shoveling real sh!t in a sewage processing plant
And that is before we learn how many actually PAID!
Pretty sad when the media both expect and accept the White House is lying to them. Be a lot easier if they just said they were worthless purveyors of bull squeeze. The explanation doesn't make it otherwise.
33 percent bogus ,about standard for everything Obama Admin does
According to the article, the 67% is how many have paid. So 33% of their numbers are bogus. The more troubling figure is that fewer than 1.5 million are under the age of 35.
I'm amazed the numbers are so low... seems the people really hate this horror...
So basically, the admins number are 100% bogus...I knew that already. Didn’t need another article to say so.
You can also expect that the number of paying members will decrease as time goes on.
She knows she can't lie anymore about having no clue how many haven't paid. Either the victorious claims about 7.5 million will have to come crashing down or she'll have to perjure herself.
Don’t forget to add in (or out) the enrollees who had to be subsidized, and for how much WE had to pay to give them insurance!
