Been a while since I pointed out how well Obamacare was working out for all, so this update, is due:
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told a House panel Wednesday that nobody knows how many Obamacare enrollees have actually paid their health insurance bills.
“People are buying a product in the private market,” Sebelius told the House Ways and Means Committee, which was holding a hearing on the 2015 HHS budget. “As soon as we have accurate information, we will give it to you. But we do not currently have information about how many people have paid.”
The White House yesterday announced that 4.2 million people have signed up for Obamacare through insurance exchanges ahead of a March 31 deadline. About one quarter of the enrollees are in the 18 to 34 age bracket, far lower than the nearly 40 percent of young people the administration had anticipated would enroll by now.
Republicans are now pressuring the administration to find out who has actually paid for the plans they signed up for.
“How can it be that HHS, in charge of this program, cites a number, 4.2 million people signed up, but has no idea how many people have paid?” Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., asked.
Sebelius said the government does not have access to the information, “because the consumers don’t pay us, they pay their insurance company.”
Sebelius said she does not know how many enrollees were previously uninsured.
What a fucking copout. This is the government that has been spying on all of us and pretending they are not using anything they gather on their political enemies when the evidence stinks to high heaven. They would know the numbers if they wanted to. In fact, I bet they know exactly how bad was and it is, and that’s why they are playing dumber than they usually are.
And man, are they desperate. They thought the brainwashed fucking idiots that vote for them would go along despite the fact that these brainwashed idiots would be the ones hardest hit. Once that didn’t happen they had to resort to telling idiotic lies about how Obamacare would cost less than their cell phone bill. Unfortunately for the collectivist cocksuckers, too many of these brainwashed idiots can still do enough math and thinking to see that they are being sold a pile of shit. Who would have thunk it?
But it doesn’t stop there. While they feel fine cutting money from the military, where we at least have people that actually do something of value for the country, was a great thing, they got pissed that their moocher voter base, whom unlike the people in the military don’t seem to do much for the country other than bleed it dry, would also have to give up some shit. But they really drew the line at their pet project not being funded. But lucky for us, the writing is on the wall.
Oh, I am sure they will desperately try to sell this shit sandwich as a fillet mignon and lobster 7 course dinner, but even with the mass of idiots always willing to suck their cock, even when pre-offered covered with shit, are going to balk this time. That’s what happened in Florida, where a no name republican with little money fought a well known democrat whose campaign coffers were loaded with special interest money that wanted to keep that seat, only to see it all go down the drain. The problem the donkeys have is that the moochers are not getting any free shit from this deal, and in fact, many of them are going to have to pay up, so they are not happy anymore. Of course, the left knows that the deal is dead if they have to really give out this shit to the moochers for free.
The left is finally gonna reap their just rewards. Even their cheerleaders have to admit they are going to be bending over, and that just is like music to my ears. When the left is dealt a healthy dose of their own medicine, it is just deserts. Doubly so since they fucked over the country doing this crap. The fight isn’t over, but things are going in the right direction. And considering the climate we are in, that is a real special thing these days.
UPDATE: The fact that our neighbor’s Obamacare site is fubar is just another long list of stunning successes for the collectivist takeover of healthcare in this country. And they are desperate to hide the truth.
