Joe Biden Admits that ObamaCare Enrollment Numbers Might be Lower Than Projected


SURPRISE, SURPRISE, SURPRISE … Obamacare enrollment numbers are not what Obama minions have claimed. Imagine that, the Obama administration fudging the numbers?

Vice President Joe Biden admitted at a stop in Minneapolis, MN that the Obamacare enrollment numbers might be lower that projected, even as other Obama minions have been praising Obamacare enrollment. Biden stated that we might have only 5 or 6 million enrolled, rather that the 7 million that had been called a success by HHS  Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. Hey Joe, not even coming close to the signup projects when you and Obama claimed there was 50 million uninsured is a “big f’n deal”.  However, the total quantity of who signed up is immaterial. What matters in order to make Obamacare work financially is that a majority of individuals have to to youg, healthy payers, not one’s who are receiving subsidies and unhealthy.

Biden_this much

We might miss our numbers by this much …

“Initially, we talked about by the end of this period having seven million people lined up,” he told a group in a coffee shop on Wednesday. “We may not get to seven but we’re gonna get to five or six, and that’s a hell of a start with people.”

That’s quite a difference from the confident predictions last fall, just before the rollout, from Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.

“I think success looks like at least 7 million people having signed up by the end of March 2014,” she told NBC last September.

However, it may not even be as high as Biden is saying, even with his lowering of the bar. It would appear that Obama’s folks are playing fast and furious with the numbers and taking credit for Medicaid signups

In its report on signups through the end of January, the administration claimed 9.6 million total had gotten health insurance — 3.3 million in the federal and state exchanges, and another 6.3 million in Medicaid, the health care program for low-income Americans.

But a nonpartisan health care firm says the number of new signups in Medicaid from ObamaCare is much lower than 6.3 million.

“It’s about 1.3 to 1.8 million people who are new to the program The rest are part of the regular churn that are in and out,” Matthew Eyeles, of the firm Avalere Health, said.

And those in the regular churn — those who come and go all the time – wouldn’t count as part of ObamaCare because they were already eligible before the health care law.

      He is an embarrassment. I was watching his body language behind our POTUS during O-BOO BOO’s last State of the Union Speach.

      He is sooooooooooo full of himself and thinks his you know what doesn’t stink.

      JOE!!!!!!! You are a LUMMOX. I remember my biggest fear after Obama was elected was that Obama may get assassinated which would have left Biden Our Commander in Chief. Not that we aren’t messed up now as a Country- but trust me that would have been the end of us.

      Joe Biden…ROFL
