The new ObamaCare “enrollment” numbers are in. And they are catastrophic for Democrats.
A quick reminder: President Obama, HHS Secretary Sebelius, Harry Reid, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, etc. have all told us that the only reason ObamaCare enrollments didn\’t surge was the disastrous web site rollout. They also told us that the web site was fixed by the end of November.
With that in mind:
-December enrollments: 1,800,000
-January enrollments: 1,100,000
-February enrollments: 965,000
And that is before we talk about the fact that the numbers you just read are people who signed up before paying premiums, therefore a large percentage within those numbers (15% – 30% depending on who you ask) are not really in the system at all.
Or the fact that there are significantly fewer 18 – 34 year olds signing up (24% – 27% depending on who you ask) than the 38% we were told had to be in the system for it to make economic sense.
And it, of course, is before we get to the fact that Obama & Co., in a hail-Mary effort to prevent voters from realizing how bad this unworkable monstrosity really is, have given waivers to just about everyone, in order to push its consequences back beyond the 2014 midterm elections.
Well, there was a special election in Florida yesterday that was run primarily on the ObamaCare issue. How\’d that strategy work out?
Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who has gotten to the point where she makes “Baghdad Bob” look like Walter Cronkite by comparison, is still on record as assuring us that Democrats will proudly run on ObamaCare this year.
A note to Ms. Wasserman Schultz: change “proudly” to “desperately” and “on” to “from”. Then you will finally be making sense. Quite a change for you…..
