I have seen figures that the 56,000 who signed on to Obamacare in Washington state were all new Medicaid enrollees. People seem to forget that the projections were that 18 million more people would be shunted to Medicaid as part of Obamacare. i.e., almost half of the uninsured would be covered by Medicaid. Just like food stamps, Obama is trying to sign up as many people as possible for Medicaid. The more people dependent upon government programs, the better it is for the Dems.
I wonder how many of those 476,000 people trying to access 0bamacare were reporters, media, press? I think every reporter in the country was trying to get on to do the story and many of them kept trying over and over, with little or no success.
I’d also like to know how many actually bought an 0bamacare program, and if giving their information will they now be subjected to harassment by the fed? I would guess many people logged off once they found out how much it was going to cost them, deciding to wait until they had to buy it.
Meanwhile the real news goes on uncovered. Its here:
Al Shater may spill the beans soon in Egypt about how zero bribed the hell out of Morsi and how it all leads to Benghazi and Morsi hiring Ansar al Sharia to do the dirty work there.
But of course none of that will be covered since our side is so invested in O'care, debt ceiling, the budget, amnesty and oh so many other issues that we will certainly lose on. Why cover an issue we might win and win big!!
MedicAid = Medical welfare.
Morning Cousin Kabar,
Haven’t seen you in a while.
This rollout is so bad it’s a failure.
Oncit I had to install a new payroll system for an inner city hospital....Baltimore.
Had two years advance, big money....came day for it to go live (people don’t want to hear about “glitches” causing them to get no paycheck)...IT WORKED!
And I didn’t have the federal gubmint and endless money to throw at that thing.
I’m betting all over America are folks like me, charged with putting in something new, working day and night, and getting it done!
We know the federal gubmint is not up to this challenge.
This is not a winner for these dolts.
Oh, and guess what? Exactly ONE person signed up for Obamacare here in Delaware. That person showed his plan.
Now I know they’re giving subsidies for the prenmium....his was $1000 a month about, when it had been around $300.
But the subsidy will kick in but here’s the hidden cost.
His deductible was $2500!
His prescription deductibe was $1,000.
His co-pay was 70-30.
wait till this guy goes to the doctor and finds out he has to use up $2,500 worth of charges a year before his “subsidized” insurance kicks in, plus one grand of dough before a prescription is purchased.
And when it DOES finally pay something, he will have to pay 30% of the bill.
In short, forget the subsidy, he will have to pay over three grand before the health insurance pays a dime.
These Americans who think this is free with that big subsidy got a lot of learning to do.
