Here’s a pull-no-punches analysis of the ObamaCare enrollment numbers that strips away the myth of the so-called 8 million enrollees and where that number came from. The post was by Craig Andresen at http://www.thenationalpatriot.com/.
Remember the 8 million people the Obama regime were all giddy over, those they SAY enrolled in Obamacare by the deadline when they needed 7 million to make it all viable?
Well…Not so damn fast there…hold on because, as we all knew, those numbers were cooked.
NOW, we are beginning to see REAL Obamacare numbers and guess what? They ain’t so stellar. Maybe this is why Obama is on vacation. MAYBE this is why he wading into that whole mess in Ferguson Missouri. Maybe THIS is why he’s making a few assorted sorties, blowing up a few trucks in the ISIS controlled Iraq.
The regime, just two and a half months from a midterm election, is desperate for some distractions from the issue that lost him the 2010 midterms.
According to REAL numbers…from the beginning of the Obamacare enrollment period, October 1st, 2013 through the end of open enrollment on March 31st, 2014…
The total number of enrollees into the INDIVIDUAL plans was UP by 2,236,942. Yippee for socialism. Right?
No…NOT right because, the figures for EMPLOYEE based plans DROPPED by…1,716,540 leaving a net gain of only…about 520 thousand.
That is not only not good…THAT stinks out loud but it’s not nearly the end of the bad news for the regime either.
You see…when you look at the numbers in another VERY key AREA of Obamacare…
Medicare and Medicaid signed up a whopping…5 MILLION new taxpayer funded users. 5 MILLION people, 87% of whom are able bodied adults of working age who cannot afford ANY type of insurance because they don’t have a job or have dropped OUT of the workforce completely…5 MILLION new Medicaid and Medicare recipients who are relying on the taxpayers of American should THEY need any medical procedures, prescriptions, treatments or extraordinary care.
So yeah…about 8 million signed up but OF those 8 million…5 MILLION aren’t paying into the system at ALL and of the nearly 2 ¼ million OTHERS who signed up…THEIR INCOMING payments have, for the most part, been OFFSET by those who have LOST their employee based plans leaving a slobber-knocking 520 thousand to foot the viability of Obamacare.
But the real trauma of it all is lurking just beneath the surface like a shark stalking a seal and folks…we’re the seal.
HHS is also claiming that an additional 3.7 million people ‘enrolled’ by the end of April but, at the point, because they enrolled at the 11th hour, their coverages wouldn’t show until the end of the next quarter and many of them, we don’t know how many, may not be signed up at all having never paid a premium because of the crappy website and the utter failures of so many of the state run sites.
So, let just pretend that they ALL have coverage and there will not be one more case of employer dropped coverage, shall we? IF that’s the case and we know it isn’t, then where Obamacare needed 7 million enrollees, and the Obama regime claimed 8 million enrollees…the REAL number is…5 million enrollees…2 million short of what was needed to make socialismcare viable.
So…what does that mean to you, especially if YOU happen to be one of those supposed 5 million lucky stiffs with the healthcare version of cash for clunkers?
It means…you really have no idea what your Obamacare is going to cost.
How COULD you know? The price you were given for your plan was ‘X’ and ‘X’ was based on what the regime THOUGHT would be the number of seals in the shark tank. If the number of seals were ‘Y’ then the premium price would be ‘X” but…clearly, there aren’t enough seals in the tank and the sharks are hungry so…UP goes the cost of the plan you think you bought, might have bought but aren’t SURE you bought because, you haven’t received a bill for your socialism yet.
Trust me, the price of Obamacare is going to go up…the cost of Obamacare deductibles is going to go up and the cost of prescriptions is going to go up because there just isn’t a big enough pool from which to draw but the fun doesn’t end there.
Remember when I said “let’s just pretend…regarding not one more person being dropped from their employer based healthcare plan? Well, that is exactly the nature of the lawsuit against Obama right now.
HE delayed the employer mandate. He used his PEN where he SHOULD have used…CONGRESS and that IS a clear violation of the separation of powers clause in our Constitution. If he LOSES that case…employers will be forced to adhere to the LAW as it was written and poof…there will go MILLIONS of employer based plans into oblivion because, under Obamacare, many employers simply won’t be able to AFFORD to have such plans.
If that happens…POOF will go more JOBS and guess which segment of Obamacare will grow some MORE???
Rates will go up…deductibles will go up…prescriptions will go up and TAXES will go UP…and UP…and UP!!!
And, oh yeas, you all remember how much fun it was just trying to get ON that damned Obamacare website? You DO remember, don’t you, just how EASY it was to get signed up for the more expensive than the insurance you liked and wanted to keep Obamacare insurance?
This should just make you all warm and fuzzy…you really need to go back TO that festering turd of a website and do it all over again just to find out if you really are covered because…this regime can’t tell you, for sure, that you are even though you signed up for socialism.
But wait, there’s more…
If you signed up on the federal Obamacare website, thinking you were in line to get an Obamacare subsidy…grab your ankles and bend on over because…one federal judge has ruled that to be ILLEGAL because…that’s NOT how the law was written while a second federal judge says…Obama unilaterally made it so therefore, you CAN have your subsidy.
Clearly, that little spat is headed for the Supreme Court and my advice is…don’t hold your breath on getting those subsidies because, Obama’s unilateral pen dance on that subject is ALSO a violation of the separation of powers.
Here are a couple of things you need to keep front and center in your minds as we rapidly approach the November midterm elections…
ONLY democrats voted for Obamacare and some of THEM accepted bribes from the regime to do it. Not one single republican, NOT ONE and that includes the RINO’s voted to pass Obamacare. Not one in the House nor one in the Senate. Obamacare is a 100% liberal turd in the punchbowl.
Obmacare is an equal opportunity disaster. It’s costing jobs regardless of voter affiliation, it’s extracting wallets through the noses of both liberals AND Conservatives.
NOBODY in the regime can tell you what your Obamacare policy is really going to cost and we now know that while the initial website disaster was in progress, Marilyn Taverner over at HHS, the woman in charge OF the Obamacare website, was instructing others in HHS to DELETE THEIR EMAIL CONVERSATIONS with her.
And oh boy…
We wouldn’t even be talking about all this today had it not been for a certain element of registered Republicans who refused to vote for the…gasp…MORMON , who vowed to rid us all of Obamacare because, apparently the ultimate CHRISTIAN thing to do in 2012 was to SEE to it that the MUSLIM, who GAVE us all Obamacare, got reelected.
Obamacare is one of the REAL issues we ALL face and this November, we can DO something about it by casting our votes for whoever is on the ballot with an “R” behind their name. Be that candidate a Conservative Tea Party candidate, a Republican or even a RINO…we MUST vote for the “R” candidate and then, hold that elected official’s feet to the fire.
That same faction who “voted their conscience” in 2012…their conscience telling them to split the vote and ensure that the LIBERAL got elected…are at it again. ..masquerading as Conservatives, telling you that the” MORAL” thing to do is vote for a 3rd party candidate or a write-in neither of which has a snowball’s chance in hell of winning, to split the vote again, and lose again.
Obamacare…the border…our economy…jobs…government abuses of power…Benghazi…treason…common core…government expansion into our daily lives…the 2nd Amendment…over burdensome regulations…foreign affairs…The 1st, 4th, and 10th Amendments…the mess at the VA…IRS targeting…the NSA…land grabs…a Justice Department that seeks to destroy the justice system…energy independence…the future appointments of liberal, activist judges…
THOSE are the REAL issues for this November and 2016.
The only SOCIAL issue that matters is…
