Number of Obamacare
sign-ups is greatly inflated

Washington Examiner [DC], by Byron York

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 2/9/2014 1:55:38 AM

Democrats from President Obama on down have been touting Obamacare´s sign-up numbers. Even after the system´s disastrous rollout, they like to point out, roughly three million people have signed up for private insurance, while 6.3 million have signed up for Medicaid. "Already, because of the Affordable Care Act, more than nine million Americans have signed up for private health insurance or Medicaid coverage," Obama said in the State of the Union speech. "Nine million." (Snip) But there is strong new evidence to suggest the administration's claims are grossly exaggerated and deeply misleading. Obamacare is not doing nearly as well as the

Comments:
Last week, during 0bama´s whining about the unfairness of Fox Super Bowl interview, he claimed that 6M adults had signed up, which included 3M more where their dependents. That´s the 9M they claim have signed up. Of course we know that health insurers have no real idea, either, or they aren´t telling...yet. If a CEO of a real company, he´d be indited and arrested for all the lies leading up to and the implementation of 0bamaCare.

He lied. They´re still lying. And apparently there isn´t a single media source in the US that is curious enough or resourceful enough to investigate and discover what the real numbers are. It used to be that exhaustive newspaper investigative reporting such as this won a Pulitzer Prize. Looks like nobody´s interested in getting one on this subject. Perhaps they´re getting the Obama Prize for Investigative Somnolence.

When 6.3M sign up for Medicaid, what´s that say about the economy? I hope taxpayers in those states enjoy paying for it.

Inductive reasoning: if they really had a significant number of legitimate enrollees, they would be shouting it from the rooftops with mug shots and fingerprints offered up as proof. But they don´t of course.

"There will come a time when the vast American public gets tired of lies."
Unfortunately the vast American public are made up of liars, not to mention extremely low information knuckleheads. Experiment suggestion: Watch the difficulty typical pedestrians have crossing a street corner that has a street light; they can´t figure out how to do it! Most will cross the opposite way in which one should cross (you remember the proper way…very simple… "cross with the light").

The Democrats are counting on repeated lies to be believed by the lofo´s and on people giving up and accepting this for what is - a terrible and expensive destruction of the healthcare industry. It will be up to us to keep the pressure on. If the politicians smell capitulation they will quit talking about it and move on.

I agree with 10. Byron has been surfing the applause of liberalism by calling himself conservative, but siding with progressives. So, he is just now seeing this? Thanks Byron, but when this crashes down, you will be the cause more than the ignorant liberals, because you knew better the whole time. I am talking about Obama as a whole and not just Obamacare.

I believe like these numbers like I believe unemployment is 6.6%. Anything this Administration puts out is a lie. They know it, the msm knows it and we know it. But the Democrats and msm don´t care because they know their base the lo-fo votes, blacks and gays will buy it. I haven´t seen such disinformation since the heyday of the Soviet Union.

I just finished Diana West´s book "American Betrayal," 2013, St. Martin´s Press, and I will forever now understand what is going on. The American people have been lied to for far longer than Obama, in fact it goes back to 1933, when our government was saturated with Communists. Yes I said it. Joseph McCarthy was a patriot, and right. So was Rep. Martin Dies before him. Lies are just part of our American fabric now, and we have been conditioned over the last 80 years to accept them. Read the book, it will change your life.

From an old Pravda article:

"In an international sporting event, the Soviet Union came in third place while the imperialist United States finished next to last."

Remember that? I do. There were only three countries participating; France, US and USSR. Get it now?

And no, because 51 percent of voters are now proud members of the Free S*** Army, they gladly accept and believe all of Obama´s lies and will continue to do so. There is none so blind as he who will not see. Sure wish the GOP could figure that out but that´s impossible now as well.

#17--you are on target with Ms West´s book. American Betrayal should be required reading for conservatives. You might want to look a new novel, Special Access by Mark Hewitt. A CIA file proves the president is not who he claims to be, the CIA director blackmails him, and the hero of the book releases the file to the press. This is what should have happened.

So it´s only 2 million - - not 9 million.

But take a look at a "2" - - then look at a "9" - - pretty similar, aren´t they? The "2" has that little line at the bottom - - and the "9" has that little loop at the top. Otherwise they´re EXACTLY THE SAME!

So much for more phony right-wing scandalmongering.

The entire country is living on lies. Who can you believe ? The Regime, the IRS, Obama Care, the Treasury, the department of education,department of energy, Department of Human Services, the FBI, the CIA...you get my drift.

The country was formed on Christian values, which served this country well for a 150 years plus. The rule of law was revered, America and the Constitution were loved and respected by our citizens. Now the morality of our country is pitiful. The lie is the new standard for the federal government.

America has largely left God, our laws are disrespected/ignored and the reckless pursuit of diversity are three of the main reasons, I believe we are headed to real chaos. That may be what we need.

Many of my comments are about what propaganda does to the people. First, most of the people in the world are lemmings/sheeple. The pundits don´t talk about that. Either don´t understand this concept or they are shy to insult the lemmings. Second, the world is ruled by fear and propaganda. We are way inside the propaganda stage and are entering the fear stage. Why do you think all the gov´t agencies are doing what they are doing? And it won´t take much to beat us into submission. How long did it take for Hitler, Lenin/Stalin, Castro, Pol Pot?
So, I am not optimistic that sheeple will wake up. They are already in submission.

Obamacare has always been about CONTROL and DEPENDENCY on Government.
The Dems in charge don´t want people being able to afford healthcare on their own.

People who work, who are self-sufficient, who are independent, generally want LESS government, not more.
It follows that the more people they can drive into poverty, the more people they can get forced out of having a full time job, the more people they can get on the big ol´ Gov´t teat, they figure the more people will vote Dem to keep that teat available.

Doctors can be hard people to shock, but a recent case left one surgeon flabbergasted. A 63-year-old man came to hospital complaining of vomiting and stomach pain. He claimed he´d swallowed the lid of a bottle in an act of anger during a marital dispute, and was given an x-ray. Doctors knew what they were seeing was no bottle cap, but it was not until they operated on the man that the source of his complaint was revealed. Twelve bars of gold weighing nearly 400g were found in the man´s stomach and removed. The BBC reports that police and customs authorities had questioned the businessman and confiscated the gold.

Sydney - A strong 6.6-magnitude earthquake struck off Papua New Guinea´s Bougainville Island on Saturday but there was no risk of a widespread tsunami, seismologists said. The quake, scaled back from an initial reported magnitude of 6.9, hit at 0104 GMT and was centred 59 kilometres (36 miles) southwest of the town of Panguna on Bougainville at a depth of 24 kilometres, the US Geological Survey said. In its initial estimate the USGS said there was a low likelihood of casualties and damage. According to the Hawaii-based Pacific Tsunami Warning Center there was no threat of a destructive widespread tsunami based on historical data.

Doha, Qatar - The Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamic political organization that has been defanged in almost every area where it was once a key player, has driven a deep rift between the Gulf´s two most powerful players. Months of tension between Qatar and its neighbors came to a head last month when Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) withdrew their ambassadors. Although the regional Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) announced yesterday that the parties had resolved their disagreement, that will likely remain a surface-level fix unless Qatar abandons its support of the Muslim Brotherhood – something it

Washington - The Obama administration is putting off its decision on the Keystone XL oil pipeline, likely until after the November elections, by extending its review of the controversial project indefinitely. In a surprise announcement Friday as Washington was winding down for Easter, the State Department said federal agencies will have more time to weigh in on the politically fraught decision — but declined to say how much longer. Officials said the decision will have to wait for the dust to settle in Nebraska, where a judge in February overturned a state law that allowed the pipeline´s path through the state.

Washington - The National Archives on Friday released its largest batch yet of previously withheld documents from the Clinton administration, with topics including the conflicts in Somalia and Rwanda, Middle East peace negotiations, the Oklahoma City bombing and public figures as varied as Richard M. Nixon and Oprah Winfrey. The bundle that is likely to receive the most attention, though, is one that covers Hillary Rodham Clinton’s ill-fated attempt as first lady to overhaul the health care system. Mrs. Clinton, who ran for president in 2008, is considering a second attempt in 2016. Here are some notable sections:

General Motors Co said it would ask a U.S. court to bar lawsuits related to actions before its 2009 bankruptcy, signaling a tougher stance toward legal claims stemming from its recent recall over faulty ignition switches. GM has said it is protected from liability for claims related to incidents that occurred before it exited bankruptcy in 2009, and has taken steps to raise those issues with the court by filing motions to stay recall-related lawsuits while it asks that bankruptcy court to clarify the extent of that protection. In a filing with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas on Tuesday, GM asked for a stay on litigation

Beijing - Chinese President Xi Jinping plans to use a purge of senior officials suspected of corruption to put his own men and reform-minded bureaucrats into key positions across the Communist Party, the government and the military, sources said. Xi hopes that removing corrupt officials and those resisting change will allow him to consolidate his grip on power and implement difficult economic, judicial and military reforms that he believes are vital to perpetuate one-party rule, said the sources, who have ties to the leadership. In the most far-reaching example of his intentions, Xi plans to promote about 200 progressive officials

According to a new study, spooning with your partner really does say something about your relationship. Researchers from the University of Hertfordshire surveyed 1,000 people and found that couples who maintained physical contact while they slept were more likely to report being happy in their relationship. An overwhelming 94% of couples who touch while sleeping said they were happy, while only 68% of couples who didn’t touch while snoozing expressed being satisfied with their relationship. Not only that, physical distance while sleeping seemed to translate into emotional distance.

New deportation cases brought by the Obama administration in the nation’s immigration courts have been declining steadily since 2009 and judges have increasingly ruled against deportations, leading to a 43 percent drop in the number of deportations through the courts in the last five years, according to Justice Department statistics released on Wednesday. (Snip) The statistics present a different picture of President Obama’s enforcement policies than the one painted by many immigrant advocates, who have assailed the president as the “deporter in chief” and accused him of rushing to reach a record of two million deportations.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
