‘The debate over repealing this law is over,’ he insisted. ‘The Affordable Care Act is here to stay.’
Isn't it a curious thing that in the weeks preceding Obama's April 1st Rose Garden speech Democrats were trying to hide from their participation in shoving this monstrosity down America's throats.
Isn't it a curious thing that during the time that the open enrollment period for this monstrosity the Government could not come up with a coherent number of those who have actually enrolled yet on April first they have placed a highly specific number with a decimal in it in front of us.
Obamacare “is doing what it’s supposed to do; it’s working.
Isn't it curious that millions have been dropped from their current healthcare plans, that they have liked. Why, because Obamacare is doing what it's supposed to do?
Isn't it curious that millions cannot see the doctors that have had for years and have come to trust as their primary defense for their families healthcare. Why, because Obamacare is doing what it's suppose to do?
Now, according to sources who actually try to follow the "intended" consequences of Obamacare, the statistics bear a different story -- "Well, he allegedly got 7.1 million enrollees on paper, but let’s look at the myriad ways that number is reduced.
National Journal reports that an estimated 15 to 20 percent of these enrollees haven’t paid their premiums, which means they won’t be covered. So right off the bat, you have to reduce the number to between 5.7 million and 6 million, which means the figures already won’t work.
Instead of 38 percent of these enrollees being in the young and healthy category, Michael Tanner of the Cato Institute reports that less than 30 percent of enrollees are younger than 35.
Also, RAND Corp. estimates that only about one-third of the new enrollees were previously uninsured, which means that two-thirds of the 5.7 million or 6 million cannot properly be counted in these figures. So we have fewer than 2 million net new enrollees. But we’re still not finished.
In addition to this, RAND estimates that nearly a million more people lost their plan because of Obamacare and couldn’t afford to replace it because Obamacare mandates coverage of additional risks and causes premiums to increase.
Does that mean we are actually down to about 1 million net new enrollees?
Not to destroy your day further, but on top of all this, Obamacare is projected to cost the government — meaning taxpayers — $2 trillion over the next decade, which isn’t even being factored in here. And how many believe that number isn’t grossly underestimated? Also, Obamacare is going to cause cuts to Medicare Advantage, which will reduce benefits or increase premiums for people by an estimated $35 to $75 per month.
As you can see, Obama is giving you only a fraction of the information you need to understand this picture and imparting the false impression that Obamacare is working now, and when premiums skyrocket next year, he can scapegoat the insurance companies and proceed to his beloved single-payer, full-blown statist scenario. - Human Events
I think the American public will show this fool and the ship of fools that have floated this turd what the real "intended consequences" will look like come November.
