Well, he allegedly got 7.1 million enrollees on paper, but let's look at the myriad ways that number is reduced.
National Journal reports that an estimated 15 to 20 percent of these enrollees haven't paid their premiums, which means they won't be covered. So right off the bat, you have to reduce the number to between 5.7 million and 6 million, which means the figures already won't work.
Instead of 38 percent of these enrollees being in the young and healthy category, Michael Tanner of the Cato Institute reports that less than 30 percent of enrollees are younger than 35.
Also, RAND Corp. estimates that only about one-third of the new enrollees were previously uninsured, which means that two-thirds of the 5.7 million or 6 million cannot properly be counted in these figures. So we have fewer than 2 million net new enrollees. But we're still not finished.
In addition to this, RAND estimates that nearly a million more people lost their plan because of Obamacare and couldn't afford to replace it because Obamacare mandates coverage of additional risks and causes premiums to increase.
Does that mean we are actually down to about 1 million net new enrollees?
Not to destroy your day further, but on top of all this, Obamacare is projected to cost the government -- meaning taxpayers -- $2 trillion over the next decade, which isn't even being factored in here. And how many believe that number isn't grossly underestimated? Also, Obamacare is going to cause cuts to Medicare Advantage, which will reduce benefits or increase premiums for people by an estimated $35 to $75 per month.
As you can see, Obama is giving you only a fraction of the information you need to understand this picture and imparting the false impression that Obamacare is working now, and when premiums skyrocket next year, he can scapegoat the insurance companies and proceed to his beloved single-payer, full-blown statist scenario.
Obama must be still counting on the fact that he can fool enough of the people enough of the time -- Election Day every two years -- to continue his sinister plan to fundamentally transform this nation.
The polls are screaming that he's finally run out of juice. Pray it is so.
