The number of people signing up for insurance under the Affordable Care Act is lower than the Obamacare projections of the CBO.
The ugly truth about Obamacare: We detonated the entire system of medical care and insurance in the United States–covering 330-million people–for the sake of a Democrat voting-block of 7-million.
From CNBC: “Gov’t slashes 2015 Obamacare sign-up forecast by 30%”
So the number “13” apparently is bad luck for Obamacare, too.
Federal officials on Monday sought to lower expectations for upcoming enrollment in Obamacare, announcing that they now believe that only between 9 million and 9.9 million people will be enrolled in Affordable Care Act health insurance plans by the end of 2015.
That is well below the 13 million people that the Congressional Budget Office has projected for Obamacare enrollment by the end of 2015. Open enrollment for 2015 plans resumes Saturday.
The new projection, as much as 30 percent reduced from the CBO estimate, comes from the Health and Human Services Department, which oversees the Obamacare health reform program.
HHS also said it now appears that it will take longer—perhaps quite a bit longer—than 2017 to reach a “steady state” of 25 million Obamacare enrollees that CBO had been projecting for 2017 enrollment.
HHS… said Monday that there are about 7.1 million people currently enrolled in Obamacare plans.
Yep, 7-million dependent slaves on Uncle Donkey’s Plantation, for which the rest of us have had our insurance thrown into total disarray–and our costs and deductibles skyrocket. Typical, brainless, one-size-fits-none government solution to appease a tiny group of people who could have been much better served in another way. But it’s our fault for ever allowing the government to get involved in the first place—the Constitution nowhere gives Congress the right to meddle in medical care, period.
Hopefully the Supreme Court can avoid another case of blackmail, and they’ll put a stake in Obamacare’s heart over the illegal Federal subsidies case.
We can dream, and have hope for change.
