Feds ask Blue Cross Blue Shield not to release Obamacare signup numbers

The Obama administration asked North Dakota’s largest health insurer not to publicize how many people have signed up for health insurance through a new online exchange, a company official says.

During a Monday forum in Fargo for people interested in signing up for coverage via the exchange, James Nichol of Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Dakota told the crowd his company received the request from the federal government earlier Monday. Nichol is a consumer sales manager for the company.

Still, a spokeswoman from Blue Cross Blue Shield says about 14 North Dakotans have signed up for coverage since the federal exchange went live Oct. 1. That brings total statewide enrollment to 20 – less than one a day.

Spokeswoman Andrea Dinneen said Tuesday that while Blue Cross generally does not release its internal sales numbers, it has in this case because the problematic rollout of the federal health care exchange is a “unique situation.”

They should release the amount! It would show the people that there are Honest Companies out their! It's GOOD PR.

Dictatorial, mafia, chicago style.  Lucky for him; we keep sitting back in our easy chairs going, "Hum-m-m-m-m-m-m, what a shame."

You mean commie/marxist style....

I would be interested in knowing whether these 20 people who have purchased insurance through the great online exchange are the ones who are SUBSIDIZING the other insureds or the ones being SUBSIDIZED by the other insureds.  My guess is that those who signed up on the great online exchange are the ones whose medical bills will far exceed their premiums.

Secrets, secrets, secrets.  Get yourself a dictator and he will have his secrets all over the place.  Thanks Blue Cross Blue Shield for the big numbers.  They show a statewide total of TWENTY people in North Dakota that have signed up for the glitched unaffordable Oblamerscare program.

What was that number?  If we get 7000 in the first month we can consider Obamacare a success?  How about 700?  Or maybe just count any attempts to access the sites and the number for success.  Democrats are very good at accepting duplicate numbers when the number matter.  

We are faced with a puzzle.  How many are receiving health care under obamacare and how many of them are subsidized?  The fact that obama and company does not want the information out there makes it easier for them to continue with the lie that it is popular. 

Just as with the other government controlled data, we will never know the truth.

My wife just came in from her morning walk and when I mentioned this posting, she said they just announced that there were 14 who signed up, a long ways from the 7 mil they need for this junk.

Wow!  14!  I wish we knew how much it cost to set up this incredible system.  My bet is that when we divide that number by the number of people who sign up, we will discover that we could have sent each signee to the moon for the amount of money spent to put this great system into place.

Before the government brought its very competent and cronyistic computer-programming acorns into the show, there was this other system which worked quite well for many decades.  They used to call them 'health insurance brokers' and salesmen.

So far 634 million dollars of our tax money is what it has cost....and that is before they brought in the "experts" a couple of days ago....

So far the gov't has said it allocated over 600 million to start OBcare....that money was borrowed from SS and medicare and at the beginning of next year , the Pres. is going to take more money from them. This is how he is funding his socialist H/C. , knowing that SS will be broke in a few years. THEN all the seniors will be dependent on the gov't, who by the way CONTROLS THE DEATH PANELS !! WE are screwed no matter how you look at it .

LOL!! Seriously??? Shoot no wonder they were told not to release the numbers. VERY EMBARRASSING!

BREAKING: Hillary Admits She Was Wrong About ‘Deplorables,’
White Nationalists Only ‘0.15%’ Of U.S. Population

(TeaParty.org) – Hillary Clinton, the failed liberal presidential candidate who sealed her fate by slamming half of U.S. voters as a load of racist, sexist, xenophobic “deplorables,” just came out and admitted she was wrong, Breitbart reports.

Speaking with Hugh Hewitt on his radio show about her book “What Happened,” he asked her if she actually believes that half of the American population are white nationalists and racists.

“Of the 62.9 million people who voted for President Trump, do you have a number in your mind that you think are actually white nationalist racists of that 62.9 million, a real number?” he asked.

“No, I don’t,” she said.

Still have any doubts? Later in the conversation, Hewitt asked the same question again. “Do you think there are more than a half million, you know, honest-to-God white nationalists running around the United States?”

Clinton: “Probably not, no.”

A white nationalist would like to establish a sovereign country for people of white European heritage, an idea everyone across the political spectrum finds unspeakably intolerable and offensive. Now, the woman who declared that this was the desire of more than half of Americans is saying that virtually nobody wants it. On both counts, she’s completely wrong.

There’s no doubt that Clinton is probably going to try running again for president in 2020 – if she’s even alive that long – and might be trying to absolve her guilt and pander to all those “undecideds” who instantly went MAGA the second she blasted them as no-good racist deplorables for not voting Democrat.

However, Clinton did later admit that there were more white nationalists in America than she had thought. Expressing her worries that the internet and the presidency of Trump is giving them a voice and a platform, she hinted that under her iron scepter, she will attempt to silence them.

“Unfortunately, their views, which used to be quite beyond the mainstream, you know, have a much broader audience now, because you know, of being online and having outlets and media presence that can promote those attitudes,” she said.

How many white nationalists are there in the United States? That’s a question with troublingly few answers, since for some mysterious reason the liberal mainstream media – even though it claims all the time that white supremacy is on the rise – hasn’t actually bothered to take polls and just ask people whether they are white nationalists.

Actually, there’s a simple answer to that. If such a poll were to be taken, our bet is that liberals would be very disappointed to discover that almost nobody is actually a white nationalist, and so there would be no way they could continue scaring people with those fears. A tactic Clinton has apparently given up on.

Left-wingers are entirely convinced that some vague but large majority of people who say they aren’t racists or white nationalists, actually share a lot of views with them – which is why Nazi and white supremacist have become interchangeable with Republican and libertarian.

An article by Newsweek, which polled around 5,000 in order address this very question, came up with this response:

About 70 percent of respondents strongly agreed that people of different races should be “free to live wherever they choose” and that “all races are equal,” and 89 percent agreed that all races should be treated equally. At the same time, 31 percent of respondents said they strongly or somewhat agreed that the country needs to “protect and preserve its White European heritage,” while 34 percent strongly or somewhat disagreed and 29 percent said they neither agreed nor disagreed.

Reality is, it’s a little true that some Americans do have overlapping views with white nationalists, but the overwhelming majority of respondents STRONGLY believe that the races should be free, are equal, and should be treated equally. Sounds like none of these respondents would be joining a lynch mob or waging a second Holocaust any time soon – trying to equate the preservation of white heritage with support for slavery and genocide is obviously one of the Left’s biggest lies, and the very reason why 39 percent of people in this same survey believe white people are under attack.

So Clinton changes her mind, and now says she believes less than one percent of the American population are white nationalists – did she believe there were even LESS than that during the campaign trail? Either way, she’s either just lying or plain stupid.
