Like all of the false promises originally used to sell the nation on Obamacare, today’s triumphant numbers are apparently just more pathological spin from what could very well be the most shameless liars in all of history.
From the Daily Mail: “‘The debate over repealing this law is over’: Obama boasts 7.1 MILLION have signed up to Obamacare – but study shows just 858,000 newly insured Americans have paid up!”
Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.
Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly cancelled because they didn’t meet Obamacare’s strict minimum requirements.
Still, he [Obama] claimed that ‘millions of people who have health insurance would not have it’ without his insurance law.’
Aside from the issue of the numbers’ likely decrease when non-paying enrollments are taken into account, administration officials have been coy about the RAND Corporation study, which suggests that relatively few Obamacare enrollees were previously uninsured.
The unpublished RAND study – only the Los Angeles Times has seen it – found that just 23 per cent of new enrollees had no insurance before signing up.
And of those newly insured Americans, just 53 per cent have paid their first month’s premiums.
If those numbers hold, the actual net gain of paid policies among Americans who lacked medical insurance in the pre-Obamacare days would be just 858,298.
Just when you think they could never go lower… they dig some more… toss manure on the pile, and have their American media friends spread it. Looks like the world press actually isn’t buying it (like virtually all Obamacare sign-ups!).
How does it feel to have a President the entire world knows is a fraud? What does it communicate about us, as a people? Are we ready for real change… like having leaders with a functioning conscience?
