AND THE LIES JUST CONTINUE … Now the Obama White House is Saying that 7 Million Signups for Obamacare by March Was Never Their Goal
If the Obama White House minions mouths are moving, you can rest assured they are lying …
How bad is it when even MSNBC is trying to hold the Obama White House’s feet yo the fire as to Obamacare signup goals and questions the truthfulness of Obama’s minions? White House adviser for health policy Phil Shiliro said to MSNBC that the goal for Obamacare was never 7 million signups by March, that was just some arbitrary number from the CBO. What a joke, Schiliro denied that the Obama administration ever set Obamacare enrollment goals of 7 million consumers or that benchmarks were necessary. Really, no benchmarks, I guess we can see why the roll-out and entire concept of Obamacare is a disaster.
What a shock, the Obama administration is moving the goal post once again. The GOP has stated that Obama was infamous for doing this, yet Americans paid no attention. I bet they are now. It is fair to say that nothing from the Obama administration can be trusted.
WELKER: Are you confident that you’re going to be able to meet your target of getting 7 million people by the end of March? And is that still your target number
SCHILIRO: Well, that was never our target number. That was a target that was put out by the Congressional Budget Office and has become the accepted number. But there’s no –
WELKER: Well Kathleen Sebelius has said 7 million people, that that’s the goal.
SCHILIRO: But that was because it came from the Congressional Budget Office and it had become an accepted number. There’s no magic to the 7 million. What there is magic to is that in the month of December, a million Americans signed up for insurance. Not because they had to. They didn’t face a penalty if they didn’t. They signed up because they wanted insurance on Jan. 1.
But wait, what do you mean that 7 million was not the goal? That is the number that HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated was the target back in June 2013. But ever since then the White House has lowered the bar and now they have lowered it so much they claim there were no benchmarks. Next thing you know Obama’s minions will be touting negative signups.
Sebelius on Monday said 7 million is a “realistic target.”
“We’re going to be driving our efforts toward that kind of enrollment effort,” she said. “It’s both about numbers and also hopefully getting a balanced risk pool.”

But what makes it all worse is that not even the so-called 2.1 million who think they have enrolled in Obamacare, really have not. So they are referring to enrolled as individuals who have signed up but may not have paid their premium. How does one have coverage or considered enrolled if they have not paid? So on January 1, 2013 the new set of challenges will begin. How many people think they have insurance coverage; however, do not?
With President Obama’s health care law scheduled to begin in earnest when the new year kicks off, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius claimed on a Tuesday conference call that as of Dec. 28, “2.1 million people have enrolled in a private insurance plan” through the program.
Later in the call, Sebelius emphasized that enrollments wouldn’t be completed until individuals paid their first month’s premiums.
But HHS officials still won’t disclose how many of the 2.1 million they claim enrolled through the federal healthcare.gov website or one of the state-based exchanges actually paid for coverage.
Though Sebelius left the call before the question-and-answer session, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services spokeswoman Julie Bataille declined several times to provide payment information.
