Why was Obama ''spiking the football'' in the Rose Garden, bragging about 7 million people signing up for his health care scam? When they ram-rodded this legislation through Congress five years ago, the argument was that 40 million Americans were without health insurance.
And now, after five years of promotion and hundreds of millions of tax dollars spent buying commercials for it, only 7 million people signed up for it? And they're celebrating that as a ''success?'' What?
1. Just because 7 million signed up, it doesn't mean that they all have insurance. You have to pay a premium to have coverage, and the government refuses to confirm how many have actually paid. One research firm has declared that only 858,000 people have actually paid. Which makes the 7 million figure even more laughable.
2. Of those 7 million, many of them are not the people who were uninsured when this law was passed. Many of them are people who lost their current plans when they were dropped by insurance companies due to ObamaCare regulations - despite Obama's ''promise'' that they could keep their current plans if they liked them. When they were dropped, they had no choice but to enroll through the exchanges.
3. Even if all 7 million people were newly insured, and if all 7 million had paid premiums and are officially covered now, what about the other 33 million? How can they ''celebrate'' the massive failure of only getting 7 million enrollments out of the 40 million that they were so worried about?
November cannot get here fast enough.
