A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America's health care system 'a lot better' in a Rose Garden press conference.
But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality.
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.
Let's see... there's 350 Million LEGAL citizens in America. Deduct those on Medicare (retired).
Scratching my head.... how many people are supposed to sign up?
I'm confused... is 7.1 Million really supposed to be an exciting number?
How many of these 7.1 Million are illegals? How many of these 7.1 Million were duplicates due to sign-in problems and repeat visitors? How many names were counted as signed up just for being curious and asking for information? How many dead people and aliases are included? 858,000 TRUE enrollees is a much more believable number.
We must KILL and REPEAL this law before it kills us! Health care is already suffering. Well-trained Doctors and nurses are leaving, waiting room lines are long, appointments are impossible to get, drug costs are soaring, diagnostic tests are being delayed or cancelled, and the paperwork is a nightmare! The elderly and terminally ill are being shoved aside and ignored. IS THIS OUR AMERICA???
Welcome to Obama's America. Obama, the prince of darkness, destroying America one day at a time.
as usual the administration has cooked the numbers just like the unemployment numbers....and everything else this group of terrorists do.....would really like to know just how many illegals have signed up.....remember the lies on Benghazi, the irs, fast and furious, nsa, fast and furious......and oh yea...you can keep your doctor......
hopefully all 7 million will go to the doctor tomorrow and put in claims to be reimbursed. Then we see how the government is able to pay people back for their expenses. This will show just how successful this really is. So we need to get everyone who sign up to go to their doctor as soon as possible for a wellness check up.
We , the American people , will destroy this communist conspiracy they call the " affordable care act " even if it takes our entire lifetime , we are not and will not be communists regardless of any ruse they use , even free medical care .
Amen to you Buck....Great post
He lied from the start, during his reelection campaign, so what makes anyone feel that he is ever going to be truthful to the people he swore to bring dowm?
Obama is a liar period. Obamacare will not work for the primary reason of costs. Additionally, how many illegals and Mexican citizens are illegally signed up and adding to the tax burden of citizens?
Revolt, stop paying taxes that feed the criminal anti human beast. The left have you supporting millions of illegal aliens that will vote against your ideals while sucking you dry using your tax monies. It's over folks, no chance of working within the system that Obama and the left has stacked it against you. I said it before he was elected, " Obama is the Enemy of Humanity and America ". He will destroy the country, few listened and this is where we are at.
