We Shouldn’t Have to Guess About Obamacare’s Impact April 1, 2014

Posted by geoff in News.

There’s a lot of controversy about how many people have actually lost their insurance, how many have bought Obamacare insurance, and how many of those people are young or uninsured. Frankly, without conducting my own survey there’s no way to tell what the truth is.

But that’s a ridiculous situation to be in.

This administration has a duty to accurately track the enrollees and victims of the Affordable Care Act, and to report it to the public in a timely fashion. We shouldn’t be left trying to cobble together estimates from independent groups – we should be arguing about the survey methodology of the government’s statistics.

The fact that the government doesn’t have those numbers available is another huge failure of the Obamacare rollout.

Almost every day I pinch myself and say — YES — this is actually happening in the United States of America!

I have said it before, and will say it again:

My cheap Casio cash register from 1994 automatically counts customers. And the concept wasn’t new then, either. We’re talking abacus-level technology, here.

The reason they keep (laughably) claiming they don’t know this very elementary accounting information, is because the information they have is bad news. Otherwise there would have been no need to hide, and they would have been shouting joy from the rooftops.

And where are the investigators demanding an accounting for all the hundreds of millions that were wasted coming up with a nonworking website (even after for three damn years)? Hah. Like it never happened.

Furthermore, the administration is taking credit for dropping the uninsured rate from 18% to 16%…but they aren’t mentioning that the uninsured rate only shot to 18% in the first place as a direct result of the implementation of O-care, which caused the involuntary cancellation of millions of people’s insurance plans!

No, we shouldn’t have to ask any of these questions. If the administration were forthright, many of these problems would have been nipped in the bud. Because the administration would have been showing its work all along, and the problems exposed to scrutiny while they occurred. No, we would have no Obamacare. We would have actual health care reform, hammered out by two parties instead of shoved down all our throats by one.

That is what political opponents and a free press are for, after all. They put your ideas to the test and force you to think better and do better.

We are so fucked. At least this monstrosity is dying before our eyes. That is a good thing. Kill it, start over again after this Chicago cockroach leaves office.

No offense to other cockroaches who are not from Chicago.
