Obamacare: By The Numbers

Until today, we had never heard of the group ‘Public Notice’ before. Seriously … when we first heard the name, we thought we might be dealing with some sort of 1980s Depeche Mode cover band or something. But no … Public Notice is (according to its website) “an independent non-profit dedicated…

Until today, we had never heard of the group ‘Public Notice’ before.

Seriously … when we first heard the name, we thought we might be dealing with some sort of 1980s Depeche Mode cover band or something.

But no … Public Notice is (according to its website) “an independent non-profit dedicated to providing facts and insight on the economy and how government policy affects Americans’ financial well-being.”

And while that may not have the same catchy beat as “Enjoy The Silence,” it is nonetheless right up our alley …

So, when one of the group’s representatives reached out to our founding editor this week in the hope we might highlight Public Notice’s new website project – ObamacareEnrollmentNumbers.com – we were happy to oblige.

Because like that guy in the longer-lasting light bulb commercial says, when you argue with math … you lose.

Take a look …

As we continue to write on the latest Obamacare sham we’ll be sure to check out this site (and urge you to do the same).

What is that G-U-U-U-U-R-R-R-R-G-LING sound I hear? Something drowning?

Sadly SH, what you hear is dead silence because the Obamacare gurus are waiting for the final collapse (or our surrender) as predicted. Government will then hustle the “solution” to their problem of destroying the private health insurance market as we know it. We will end up with more cronyism and Single Payer… whoopee!

The failure of the Obamacare rollout would be laughable if it wasn’t costing us so much.

This would have been cheaper to just sign all blacks up for Medicaid. Oh, wait, they are all already on Medicaid.

Yep…the Obamacare chickens have certainly come home to roost, haven’t they? And as correctly predicted, they are all taking one giant collective shit on the American people. As someone else pointed out here, this entire dumpster fire would be laughable if it weren’t destroying the health care market and American lives along with it. I hope all of you brain-dead Obamazombies enjoy your “free” health care!

“From this day forward, all of the cynics, all the naysayers — they’re going to have to confront the reality of what this reform is and what it isn’t. They’ll have to finally acknowledge this isn’t a government takeover of our health care system. They’ll see that if Americans like their doctor, they’ll be keeping their doctor. You like your plan? You’ll be keeping your plan. No one is taking that away from you.” — President Obama, March 25, 2010, Iowa City, Iowa

You will find the 50,000 number is cooked.

It is being reported that many have looked at the huge monthly premiums they must cough up for Obamacare as well as they bankrupting annual deductibles (the upfront out of your bank account cash you must pay for your healthcare BEFORE the policy kicks in) and simply left the order in their shopping carts which WH is counting as “enrolled” . LoL

Have Democrats any commonsense? Republicans have given Democrats 30 plus opportunities to repeal Obamacare in the Democrat occupied Senate and they refused to even vote on the House face saving proposals. The GOP even threatened a government shutdown to defund Obamacare and they balked.

American lives are being turned upside down. The family Chief Executive Healthcare Officer, Soccer Moms, are turning to GOP commonsense governing by the millions.

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) inserted a provision in Obamacare which said members of Congress and their aides must be covered by plans “created” by the law or “offered through an exchange.”

Nancy Pelosi, the US House architect of Obamacare, has pushed for the WH to pressure the Office of Personnel Management to pay for any premium increases for Congressional members and their aides! Under the old system, the government contributed nearly 75 percent of premium payments. This was being abolished under Obamacare. If payments stopped, lawmakers and aides would have faced thousands of dollars in additional premium payments each year. The OPM issued a rule last August to break the law in allowing taxpayer money to be used to pay for their healthcare.

The 2014 premiums for Federal workers tells the story. A high Blue Cross/Blue Shield individual policy holder will only pay 136.70 a month for Obamacare coverage while the US Taxpayer will pay the rest of their monthly premium, 410.12!! This is clearly breaking the law as Obamacare was written.

A high family policy from Blue Cross/Blue Shield for Congressional members and their staffs will only pay 219.15 a month while the taxpayer must pay the remaining 675.46 of their monthly premium.

Rep Wilson SC-2 pays only 219.15 a month for full Blue Cross/Blue Shield coverage while his constituents must pay the remaining 675.46 a month while we face having their healthcare plans cancelled. Sen Lindsey Graham only pays 136.70 a month for full dental, prescriptions, and keep his doctor while his constituents pay for the rest of his premium, 410.12!
