National Review Online -- The latest numbers released by the Obama administration indicate that 5 million people have signed up for insurance under Obamacare, but the administration won’t say how many enrollees are young, how many were previously uninsured, or how many have paid for their insurance.
“They can follow every keystroke on our computers. We don’t think they know the facts on this?” Laura Ingraham said on Fox News Sunday. “Of course they do.”
Ingraham argued that if the facts were good — if youth enrollment was up and people were paying their premiums — then “Jay Carney would be crowing.”
Instead, enrollment is “lagging way behind what they want,” Ingraham said, which is why even in the midst of an international crisis with Russia and Ukraine, President Obama is making appearances with Ellen DeGeneres and on Between Two Ferns.
“The fact that you can throw in some pop-culture references and go on these cool comedy shows isn’t going to change the fact that most young people want choice, they want freedom, and they don’t want to be told what to do on health care,” Ingraham said.
Blog author's comments - Certainly the insurance companies know how many have signed up and how many paid for Obamacare. They passed those numbers on to HHS, but because the numbers are way under expectations the Obama administration cannot be truthful about them.
Let's hope the Obama presidency becomes a teachable moment for many of those who put him in office twice. I have my doubts though, the liberal press and academia will continue to blame the conservatives for Obama's failures. And Obamacare is only one of the problems we now have, the increase in taxes will be coming soon.
Those who voted for Obama deserve every single one of the problems they are now being forced to confront. They and so many of the low-information voters were easily duped by a deceptive, fraudulent community organizer. The problem is those of us who knew who he was are stuck with all he has done and will attempt to continue to do.
