Administration lies about Obamacare enrollment numbers

1382003144128.cachedThe Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services announced Sunday that 1.1 million Americans have picked a plan through Healthcare.gov as of Dec. 24. However, CMS’s data continues to leave many key details shrouded in mystery:

To start, the figure doesn’t reveal how many people actually paid for health plans as of Dec. 24. Though payment is what typically makes enrollment official, up to this point, CMS has counted people as being “enrolled” if they merely went through the process of picking a health care plan.

Additionally, CMS still hasn’t provided a demographic breakdown of those who have signed up for insurance through the exchange, which is a key metric for measuring the success of Obamacare, because the exchanges need a critical mass of young and healthy individuals to offset the cost of covering older and sicker enrollees and those with pre-existing conditions.

[...]

But for context, it’s also worth keeping in mind that before the exchanges opened, the Obama administration had projected 3.3 million enrollees by the end of December and the Congressional Budget Office had projected 7 million enrollments by March 31  the scheduled end of the open enrollment period.

If CMS’s data was whittled down to the number of Americans who have actually paid for insurance, and then further broken down into demographic categories, Obamacare likely wouldn’t be looking any better than it did three months ago.

  1. Who would have thought. A massive meltdown? How does this happen? It was established to fail and fail miserably! Why you say? Simple. Over and over again we hear the words “Single Payer” from the mouths of the Marxist in Chief, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and others of what the true goal is to be for America. ObamaCare is merely a wedge to slam the boot of their form of a Marxist State. The American public is being b*tch slapped into submission unto an ultimate Marxist State. No, America is not exempt from history nor reality. In less than two years you will be unable to recognize America. The amount of blood flowing in the streets will be drowning people. It is a necessary requirement for the installation of a Marxist State. History shows this reality. The Puppet in Chief is building layer upon layer of failure in everything their regime has in store for America. Most people are completely clueless as to what is about to happen.

    Thomas Jefferson gave America only 400 years to survive as a democratic republic. Sadly, we couldn’t even make it close to that timeframe. No America, we are not exempt from reality or history. Poof.

  2. What else is new. This administration has been lying about unemployment rates and inflation rates all along too.

  3. The Obummer administration lies about everything! I wouldn’t believe them if they told me the sky was blue!

  4. “To start, the figure doesn’t reveal how many people actually paid for health plans as of Dec. 24.”
    Because that part of the site hasn’t been built yet.

    “CMS has counted people as being “enrolled” if they merely went through the process of picking a health care plan.”
    Because that’s the only part sorta working!

    This is all part of the plan, to throw the industry into such disarray that the Government has to take over from the greedy, baby eating, insurance conglomerates that wants to kill off all their customers.

      Horse-burros and donkeys ? Did you expect anything less, Carl ? Is it inhumain and terrible ? Yes, it is. Why not add the 60 million American citizens who will never live to see the light. This man was
      totally corrupt long before he entered the Presidency. He, the weakest excuse for a man the Presidency has ever had has virtually no compassion on any weak entity, human or otherwise.
      He assures women that they have the right-the Obama-given right to kill their babies at any time from the first moment of their conception to the day of their delivery. At least the horses and burros had a little time in the sun. A little time for humans to be kind to them. This is what we have become Carl.
      I weep bitter tears for any weak creature under this man’s gaze.

    So if half of the people have paid, that only leaves 550,00 people that have paid something. How many of these people actually have a job. If you take the cost of the rollout, $680 M, divided by 550,000 people, this gives us over $1200 per policy. Plus it will cost the taxpayers $100 B a year to run it. Then the IRS is going to run it. They lose billions in fraufulent claims every year.

  8. What hasn’t he lied about?
    Vallely points out that the list of blatant lies and broken promises is long:.

    • LIE: He promised to treat super-PACS as a “threat to democracy.”
    • LIE: He pledged to keep unemployment from rising above 8 percent.
    • LIE: He promised to create five million new energy jobs alone. (Note: The total number of jobs created in Obama’s first term was roughly one-tenth that figure.)
    • LIE: He promised to create “shovel-ready’ jobs.
    • LIE: He promised to lift two million Americans from poverty. (Note: A record 46 million Americans are now living in poverty during the Obama era.)
    • LIE: He promised to slash health care premiums by $2,500 for the typical family … allow Americans to keep their health care coverage if they liked it … refuse to fund abortion via the Affordable Care Act … respect religious liberties … and insisted that the mandate to buy insurance, enforced by financial penalties, was not a tax.
    • LIE: He pledged to stop the rise of oceans.
    • LIE: He promised to “remake the world” and “heal the planet.”
    • LIE: He promised to punish Syria if it crossed the “red line” of using chemical weapons
    • LIE: He assured us that as president “I don’t bluff.”
    • LIE: He trumpeted the Russian reset. (Note: Tensions between Russia and the US are increasing and examples of Russia undermining U.S. interests are multiplying.)
    • LIE: He promised to bring us together (Note: He is the most polarizing president in the history of the Gallup poll.)
    • LIE: He promised to put an end to politics that “breeds division and conflict and cynicism.”
    • LIE: He counseled us to “resist the temptation to fall back on the same partisanship and pettiness and immaturity that has poisoned our politics for so long.”
    Americans can no longer have confidence in this American president when virtually everything that flows forth from his mouth is a lie or a co

    • I would like to know how much money Obama has received from Blue Cross for making them the golden-haired child of Obamacare. Nobody ever talks about the special relationship between Blue Cross and Obama. He picked them to spearhead Obamacare: why? What did Blue Cross give to Obama in return? Could we find the answer in offshore bank accounts?

  9. Obama lied again about numbers for Obama Don’t Care, what else is new.
