Analysis: Obama Celebrates
Eight Million ´Enrollments,´
Again Declares Debate ´Over´

Townhall, by Guy Benson

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/17/2014 8:56:28 PM

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'

King Obama has spoken! The debate is over!

He might as well say 20,000,000 have signed up. Does anyone believe him? Are the American people that stupid?

When you have to again and again declare that ´the debate is over´ the reality is exactly the opposite. We know it, but the Regime and the MSM is going to repeatedly try to lie and cover up. Thats what they do.

As might be expected, AP´s lede...

"WASHINGTON (AP) - A surge of eleventh-hour enrollments has improved the outlook for President Barack Obama´s health care law, with more people signing up overall and a much-needed spark of interest among young adults."

This is beyond the point of absurdity.

Obama is a LIAR no doubt when he opens his mouth about ObamaCare being a closed subject.

ObamaCare continues to be a deep festering wound that will not heal anytime soon.

Every time Obama opens his mouth about ObamaCare, he picks the scab of the wound and it bleeds once again.

Looks like it was a surge of thirteenth hour enrollments that got them over the post-deadline hump with another million of unverifiable non-enrollments.

Years from now, this entire episode of mass national insanity will be studied to try to understand how such bizarre and blatant lying by the President could be accepted as though nothing was wrong with his doing so.

Muslim loving socialist narcissist are unable to tell the truth. They can´t recognize the value of being truthful, thus they always choose to lie. The msm doesn´t hold him accountable and, in fact, encourage him by being a main member of his team. Socialism is evil and that is what Obama and the msm seek to make for America to become.

Well, #16, that is one of a few things that is true. He is still a liar though.

Pinning a liar down is always tough because they DO mix in some truth and they always have another lie ready to back up the first one.

Most of us stop lying when we are kids because of the embarrassment of getting caught, the ones who continue are usually really good at it.

Most people will believe this. And unfortunately there is no factual evidence to back it up so Obama can claim virtually anything he wants and does. And now that he has successfully turned the US census into a liberal leaning opinion survey he has even more opportunity to continue to lie to the American people. The one thing in our favor is that his bs is not changing the popularity of the law. Not yet anyway.

Please remember that we are discussing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Does the Act protect patients? If so, from what? Does the Act make care affordable? If so, how? Does the Act make care available? If so, by whom? Where are the physicians, nurses, technicians, and others who will provide services to the 30 million who will soon have care?
The PPACA was improperly named. It should be called the "Union Protection and Democrat vote-stealing Act".
The purposes of the act were: 1) to guarantee political contributions to Democrats from insurance companies; 2) to nationalize 1/6 of the US Economy; 3) to provide a vast number of new Union members; 4) to force legalization of 30 million illegal aliens; 5) to guarantee Democratic rule for the forseeable future.

Do the math. If at 7M enrollees, of which 25% are in the under 35 age category, every single new enrollee has to be under 35 to get to 35% level aof the 8M enrollees. Sounds as likely and reasonable and doable as several of those precincts which had 0 votes for Mitt.

More Obama lies. Perhaps the Obama gang can start a campaign declaring how much money Obamacare is saving its enrollees (sp?) and the country.

Obama declares the debate over. Is that like the ´settled science´ peddled by the global warmists?

These people are liars. Stop being polite, and say exactly what they are. Liars, cheats, incompetents, crooks, and frauds. It is long past time to treat these people as such.

So many otherwise well-informed Ldotters continue to misunderestimate Liar, and refer to Liar as "muslim."
A person who is willing to lie about his father´s identity will lie effortlessly about any and all subjects.

Liar´s father was Frank Marshall Davis, and even a brief visit to the Dreams from My Real Father website would reveal this fact instantaneously, with photos of dupe dad BHOSr and real father--and dead-ringer--Frank.

This explains also the doctored birth cert. Of course Liar was born in Honolulu--even his demented mother was not so demented as to travel to Kenya to birth Liar.

Wise up, peeps.

Eight million people is a very small percentage of the three hundred and twenty million people actually living in the USA. Then you have to ask how many of those people signed up while under political pressure to do so and have no intention of paying their premiums beyond a month or so or who have never paid their premiums at all. The cost to taxpayers to get those eight million people to sign up appears to have been tremendous. I would say that the debate on this issue really has not started yet.

Obama is a master at using the Straw Man.

In yesterday´s event, he said, "They said no one would sign up [for Obamacare]."

No ever said that. But he uses the false proposition to prove his argument.

Give him the benefit of the doubt. Let´s assume he´s on track to getting all 40 million of the claimed uninsured insured under Obamacare. The projected cost of Obamacare by the CBO in February this year was $1.487 trillion for 2015-2024
(link: http://www.cbo.gov/sites/default/files/cbofiles/attachments/45010-breakout-AppendixB.pdf
).
My calculator says that´s $37,175 per newly insured or $4131 per year per person ($16522 for a family of 4). That´s enough to pay the insurance bill of all of those 40 million people for the whole time period ($344 per month on average) if you don´t buy them Cadillac plans. So what´s the point of throwing everyone else off their old insurance with which they were content and into the briar patch of Obamacare? It´s not going to save one cent, in fact given the normal course of government programs, it´s going to cost a lot more. Only one thing comes to mind: control of medical care has long been considered by Marxists to be the lynchpin of installing socialism/communism/collectivism in free societies. They´re going for the control plain and simple.

CNN is testing out a new show with Alisyn Camerota, Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon, POLITICO has learned. On Wednesday, the three anchors taped a pilot dubbed "The 10 o’clock Show,” based out of New York, network sources said. It´s not clear whether it would be a potential primetime 10 p.m. show. Segments included one on the border crisis with "Crossfire" host S.E.

WASHINGTON – Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson expressed confidence that the federal government can successfully deal with the surge of unaccompanied children crossing the southern border but it likely will cost billions of dollars to deal with the ongoing crisis. In testifying before the Senate Appropriations Committee, Johnson urged lawmakers to adopt the $3.7 billion plan proposed by President Obama, warning that revenues are running low in the Department of Homeland Security because of outlays already used to address the situation. Without the supplemental funding, Johnson told lawmakers, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement will run out of money sometime in

Attorney General Eric Holder granted an exclusive interview to ABC´s "This Week With George Stephanopoulos" from London, where he was portrayed by ABC as deeply concerned about the global terrorist threat. What stands out from this very rare session — Holder hasn´t been on Sunday network television in four years — is that Holder pulled out the oldest, lamest card in the Obama political deck: President Barack Obama and he are opposed by people who should be suspected of racism. And darned if he didn´t get away with it again. Pierre Thomas, ABC´s Justice Department correspondent, interviewed Holder and asked him why he

President Obama on Wednesday announced new sanctions against Russia for its involvement in Ukraine and other foreign policy moves in response to several international concerns across the Middle East. "We live in a complex world and at a challenging time," Obama said from the White House. "And none of these challenges lend themselves to quick or easy solutions, but all of them require American leadership. And as commander in chief, I’m confident that if we stay patient and determined, that we will, in fact, meet these challenges." The president said the new sanctions against Russia -- which hit major Russian banks and

Carter Ham, who at the time led the military´s Africa command, known as Africom, told Congress in April the terrorists who attacked the CIA annex, during the third wave of the terrorist assault, had professional training. "Given the precision of the attack, it was a well-trained mortar crew," Ham said, adding the mortar strike showed "a degree of sophistication and military training that is relatively unusual and certainly, I think, indicates that

A month before former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin called for President Barack Obama to be impeached on the pages of Breitbart News over his lawlessness on illegal immigration, Obama was already concerned that his unilateral actions on immigration could warrant impeachment. He even kind of joked with pro-amnesty activists not to push him to do something that would get him impeached. Here´s how Politico describes what occurred during a private meeting between Obama and pro-amnesty activists last month: President Barack Obama listened to immigration activists run through a long wish list of executive actions – then added a request of

Despite evidence that the current border crisis is at least partly the result of its previous executive action on immigration, the White House decided it was merely a "public relations problem" and moved forward with plans to issue further executive actions along similar lines. The New York Times has a piece out today which contains some new insight into the White House´s thinking about the border crisis and how it relates to the President´s stated goal of taking action on immigration without Congress. The Times article states, "In the days leading up to the Rose Garden speech, there were discussions in the

The central weakness of the Republican´s political position in Washington has been on vivid display as the situation at the southern border has devolved into a complete crisis. As tens of thousands of foreign nationals overwhelm the border and render our sovereign boundary meaningless, Republicans in DC are tinkering with legislative fixes they say will address the situation. As if the crisis at the border is the result of some drafting error or a failure to enact some specific law relevant to this precise set of circumstances. It is a fool´s errand. Republicans, especially in DC, can always be lured by

The U.S. deported Honduran children as young as 1-1/2 years old on Monday in the first flight since President Obama pledged to speed up the process of sending back illegal immigrant minors from Central America. Fleeing violence and poverty, record numbers of children from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala have crossed into the United States over the past year, sparking intense debate about how to solve the problem. Monday´s flight from New Mexico to San Pedro Sula, the city with the highest murder rate in the world, returned 17 Honduran women, as well as 12 girls and nine boys, aged

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters. [Snip] It can take up to 10 minutes for every radio, TV, cable and satellite provider to

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

Contrary to what those who defend the right to own high-powered assault rifles believe, not all guns are created equal. Due to a combination of availability, portability and criminal usage the following five types of guns are the country's most dangerous. School Shootings: Widely Reported Tragedies Since 2000 - Using firearm trace data from the ATF, as well as FBI homicide records, we determined the types of guns most often recovered from crime scenes and/or used in murders.

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged Americans not to forget race while working for justice and equality in their country. “As it stands, our society is not yet color blind -- nor should it be -- given the disparities that still afflict and divide us.” Holder explained, “We must be color brave, and we must never forget that all are made better and more prosperous if all are given equal opportunities.” Holder made his remarks during a speech at Howard University on Tuesday for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Civil Rights Act. “We must take into account not only the

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
