Obama Tries to Hide Obamacare Collapse By Releasing Fake Numbers

October 20, 2013

The first numbers we’re seeing for Obamacare show that it’s ALREADY headed towards total collapse. In some states, NOBODY has signed up for the private exchanges.

As a response, Obama has claimed 500k have signed up… but that number includes PARTIAL applications, MEDICAID applications, and likely even counts some partial applications DOUBLE. It’s a fraud.

Rather than achieving their “goal” of 500k applications for private-exchanges, it looks like only few thousand have applied… which means that Obamacare is currently on a path of collapse. Spread this article on Facebook and Twitter — we know the media won’t report it correctly.

Medicaid Numbers

This Weekly Standard article looks at a pretty obvious example of how the pro-Obamacare propaganda is conflating Medicaid and the private exchanges… even though without signups for the private exchanges, the entire thing goes bankrupt.

This kind of manipulated data threw some journlists for a loop. Read this from a Washington Post author who had to admit that the fell for the lies:

Yesterday I wrote about Oregon’s big success signing people up for Obamacare: The state had, in the course of 17 days, signed up 56,000 people for the health law’s Medicaid expansion. In one fell swoop, the state had cut its uninsured rate by 10 percent.

That is, however, only part of the story from Oregon. When it comes to private insurance, spokeswoman Amy Fauver said that it has not yet had any sign-ups.

If you want to see how bad things are really getting, read this report from an industry expert.

Experts are saying there are essentially NO reports of private insurers even getting a thousand or two applications… it’s always in the dozens or hundreds.

Without enough private-exchange signups, Obamacare dies. And they’re not happening — it’s spiraling to an awkward, painful, public death… just like millions of people said it would.

It’s happening. Obamacare is on its way to total collapse.

Partial Applications

Whenever the feds claim an “application” has been made, a lot of this includes partial applications — people just starting the process. For example, I have a partial application on the website because I was curious about the site. I’m not going to buy anything though. Still, now I’m counted. Oops.

From NBC News:

“Of the 476,000 applications that have been started, just over half have been from the 36 states where the federal government is taking the lead in running the markets. The rest of the applications have come from the 14 states running their own markets, along with Washington, D.C.”

Whenever reading a news story from a “friendly” news source, always look for the words “started” or “partial”. A lot of these people have spent years fabricating news events to push for statism — don’t be surprised if they won’t immediately admit when their ideas fail.

Refusing Data

The Obama administration is still refusing to publish the real data about Obamacare… and there’s a reason for that. They’re not even CLOSE to achieving what they have to achieve to save Obamacare.

From the Associated Press via TownHall.com:

“However, the officials continue to refuse to say how many people have actually enrolled in the insurance markets. Without enrollment figures, it’s unclear whether the program is on track to reach the 7 million people projecting by the Congressional Budget Office to gain coverage during the six-month sign-up period.”

I think we know why Obama refuses to release the full data yet. He’s praying for a miracle by mid-November. When the final numbers due come out, we should fully expect them to be fraudulent — trusting the feds at this point to “do the right thing” would be absurd.

The media REFUSES to cover these issues. Spread the truth by sharing this article on Facebook and Twitter.
