Starving for positive publicity for a healthcare program that became a train wreck moments after it left (or at least tried to leave) the depot, ObamaCare is being praised by the Obama Administration. What possible good could be said about this fiasco? Well, the Obama Administration is claiming that 6 million people have healthcare insurance because of ObamaCare.
The lies will never stop from this administration, will they? Even liberal-leaning CNN couldn’t sit back and let that ridiculous statement go by without a challenge. In an article titled, “The Truth Behind ObamaCare 6 Million Figure,” CNN criticized the administration for sending a message that at its very best is “misleading.”
In reality, only 2.1 million Americans had signed up for private health insurance through state and federal exchanges through December 2013. So where did the 6 million figure come from? The administration decided to add 3.9 million to the 2.1 million figure based on the fact that 3.9 million people learned that they are eligible for Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program late last year.
For those interested in the truth rather than the phony-baloney ObamaCare PR efforts, that 3.9 million number includes people who were already on Medicaid and are just renewing.
And for those of us who really want to get real about this, let’s not forget that millions of people have lost their healthcare coverage specifically because of ObamaCare. I think it’s safe to say that at least some of the new Medicaid folks are among the millions who lost their insurance because of ObamaCare and were forced to re-enroll in Medicaid through ObamaCare.
I realize that we should be used to the endless lies and deception from this administration, but I think it’s a good thing that it still bothers us. It proves we aren’t going to be sucked into Obama’s propaganda trap as his many liberal worshippers have been.
How has your health insurance situation changed – or perhaps remained the same – since ObamaCare became the law of the land? Are you paying more than you used to? Did you lose your healthcare insurance because of ObamaCare, or did you gain insurance that you didn’t have before? I’ve love to hear from you about this important topic, and I know other readers would as well.
