The 93 Million ObamaCare Lies

U.S. President Barack Obama speaks about the Affordable Care Act in WashingtonThe Obama administration has known for three years that when the employer mandate is enforced in 2015 up to 93 million Americans will be forced out of their employer-sponsored health insurance plans.

This means President Obama has not only been lying to Americans for at least three years, reassuring them that they would be able to keep their current healthcare plans, but that a massive chunk of the nation’s insured will be hurt by his signature healthcare reform that leftist Democrats unethically rammed through Congress in the dead of night.

The disturbing 2010 analysis of insurance market upheaval conducted by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services was revealed yesterday by Avik Roy of Forbes magazine.

As one commentator puts it, employers still have to decide by September 2014 if they will “pay the fine for non-coverage and force their employees into the individual exchanges, or absorb more of the skyrocketing premium costs we’re seeing this month.”

Employers “may opt for an in-between solution of private exchanges, but even that will force employees out of their current plans, contra[ry] to the Obama promise that Americans can ‘keep their plans.’”

Such decisions will have to be made “just weeks before the midterm elections. Take the headlines and outrage we are seeing now for the impact that ObamaCare has on the individual market and perhaps as many as 12 million Americans, and then multiply it by six as employers make the rational decision to get out of the health-insurance business altogether. The delay of the employer mandate may end up being the worst decision made by Barack Obama except for the hyperpartisan pursuit of ObamaCare itself.”

All those who love America can only hope that an earth-shattering electoral backlash ensues that forever snuffs out the utopian nightmare of socialized medicine. We’ll see soon enough.

Meanwhile, Americans are learning just how far behind schedule the Obama administration is in signing up Obamacare enrollees.

It turns out that enrollment has barely gotten off the ground. At a morning meeting of a “war room” within the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on Oct. 2, attendees learned that only “six enrollments have occurred so far,” investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News reports.

By the afternoon of Oct. 2, enrollments had risen to “approximately 100.” By the end of the day there were “248 enrollments” nationwide, according to CMS war room documents handed over to the House Oversight Committee chaired by Congressman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.).

CMS is aiming for 7 million enrollees in the so-called exchanges by March 31, 2014, the end of the initial six-month enrollment period. (That’s 248 down so far and just 6,999,752 to go in order to meet the official quota. Forward!)

The exchanges are artificial, bureaucrat-created cartels that merely mimic free, competitive markets, perhaps well enough to dupe people with little understanding of real-life commerce. It’s not really shopping, of course, if you have a gun to your head.

The Obama administration claims that millions of Americans have swamped the Obamacare website, HealthCare.gov, since it went live on Oct. 1 and that it registered an impressive 4.7 million unique visits in the first 24 hours despite barely functioning in that period. The administration refuses to provide documentation to back up the difficult-to-believe unique visits figure.

Quite understandably, sane people don’t believe anything the Obama administration says nowadays, especially when it comes to Obamacare.

Issa certainly doesn’t. Yesterday the lawmaker subpoenaed Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius for information about the bungled HealthCare.gov launch that she’s refused to hand over voluntarily. Issa wants a complete accounting from HHS about the laughably incompetent website launch, including how many people tried to enroll in an insurance plan using the HealthCare.gov website and how many actually succeeded.

Issa and Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) have repeatedly demanded the information from Sebelius.

Congress shouldn’t have to use legal compulsion to get the Obama administration to provide “basic information” about the exchanges, Alexander said. “But apparently that’s what it’s going to take.”

The senator said he hoped the subpoena “will force open the administration’s black box of secrets that are keeping Congress and the entire American public in the dark.”

According to Attkisson, the war room notes “leave no doubt that some enrollment figures, which the administration has chosen to keep secret, are available.”

Notes from the Oct. 2 morning meeting say, “[s]tatistics coming in.” The contractor “QSSI has a daily dashboard created every night.”

The notes also indicate that: “Direct enrollment is not working for any issuers”; Experian credit reporting agency is “creating confusion with credit check information”; and “Issuer phone numbers are not appearing correctly on the Pay Now page.”

The dysfunctional rollout lends a great deal of weight to the theory that Obamacare was designed to fail in order to clear the way for what the Left really wants: a one-size-fits-all single payer scheme that feeds the insatiable leftist fetish of equality — equally bad healthcare for all.

Our red-diaper baby president and his comrades have long wanted a single-payer system that suffocates healthcare choice. Obama’s slightly less diplomatic colleague, socialist Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.), has gone on record saying she wants to crush insurance companies.

Now she’s telling Republicans complaining about Obamacare to drop dead. “You know, I want to say to my colleagues after a three-and-a-half year campaign to repeal, to discredit, to even shut down the government over Obamacare, I want to say: get over it,” Schakowsky said at a congressional hearing Wednesday.

Is kicking most American workers out of their health insurance plans a way to bring about the ghoulish, America-killing, single-payer system that Obama and Schakowsky so badly want? It may very well be.

President Obama and Democratic lawmakers are already blaming insurance companies, instead of the true culprit, sinister anti-market government policies, for the recent nationwide tsunami of Obamacare-related insurance policy cancellations. This week Obama even said Obamacare “will actually help lower the deficit,” an absolute fiscal impossibility.

On Wednesday Obama badmouthed the nation’s insurance companies, which is part of the old Saul Alinsky playbook. Obama had the gall to justify his fascistic takeover of the American healthcare system in historic Faneuil Hall, Boston, of all places, a fact that ought to make more than a few Founding Fathers turn over in their graves. During that address to an audience of trained blue-state seals, barely a word of truth escaped the chief executive’s lips.

Obama demonized insurance companies that provide affordable health care insurance as “bad-apple insurers” that “had free rein every single year to limit the care that you received, or use minor preexisting conditions to jack up your premiums or bill you into bankruptcy.” The caudillo from Chicago vilified insurers further by calling affordable plans that pre-date the misnamed, mandate-heavy Affordable Care Act “substandard plans.”

Remember, Obama is the same medical genius who claimed doctors delight in chopping off patients’ appendages for fun and profit. In 2009 Obama said doctors get a “pittance” for treating obesity but are “immediately” reimbursed $30,000 to $50,000 for amputating a diabetic’s foot. In fact, a surgeon is more likely to get around $1,000 from Medicare for such an operation and no medical professional takes amputating a patient’s body parts lightly. But truth matters little when you’ve got a healthcare sector to nationalize.

Americans are also learning that Obama’s White House thugs are threatening officials at trade associations and insurance providers to keep their mouths shut about the chaos the so-called Affordable Care Act is causing in the healthcare industry.

CNN investigative reporter Drew Griffin said the White House is trying to prevent executives from detailing how the Obamacare law is forcing widespread cancelation of plans.

“If an insurance executive is quoted, speaks out, says anything negative about the Obamacare rollout, they, or more likely their bosses, are to get a call from inside the White House asking them to explain the comments,” Griffin said. “It’s being perceived as pressure to keep quiet.”

Multiple “sources within the industry” have told Griffin that “there is a reluctance to speak out because of these phone calls.”

Insurance industry insider Robert Laszewski said the White House “is exerting massive pressure on the industry, including the trade associations, to keep quiet.”

Griffin said that other industry sources told him they “fear retribution from the White House.”

Incidentally, the American Glob blog reminds us that during a speech in Strongsville, Ohio, on the Ides of March in 2010, Obama irresponsibly hurled numbers at the crowd.

The president claimed that under Obamacare premiums would drop by an arithmetically impossible percentage. For Americans “who get their insurance through the workplace … a lot of those folks, your employer, it’s estimated, would see premiums fall by 3,000 percent, which means that they could give you a raise.”

Presumably President Obama, who has never been accused of understanding economics, meant to say something other than “3,000 percent.”

But in the same speech, he rattled off other percentages that ought to resonate today with Americans who are now suffering from insurance sticker-stock as a result of Obamacare.

In the 2010 speech, Obama said, “I’m here because of the folks seeing their premiums go up 20 and 30 and 40 and 50 and 60 percent in a year.”

“Ohio, I am here because that is not the America I believe in and that’s not the America that you believe in.”

But that is exactly the healthcare regime that Obama is foisting on Americans. As a result of the extravagant healthcare mandates in the Obamacare law, many Americans are lucky to see their premiums jump as little as 20 percent to 60 percent in a year. Many others are seeing their policies canceled outright, rendering them uninsured or forced into an Obamacare exchange.

In the speech, Obama wheeled his dead mother around as a prop, lying about her final half year of life. He said she died of cancer, “and in the last six months of her life, she was on the phone in her hospital room arguing with insurance companies instead of focusing on getting well and spending time with her family.”

The story has been thoroughly debunked but Obama loves telling it. In reality the insurance company that covered Obama’s mother, Anne Dunham, reimbursed most of her medical expenses without making a fuss.

In a few short years there may be no private health insurers remaining and Americans may look back fondly on the days when they could talk to representatives of the insurance companies covering them.

If Obama gets his way, we’ll all be begging bureaucrats for medical treatment and death panels to spare our lives.

    My BCBS rep told me yesterday that people were crying when they heard what they would be paying. She told me by her estimate, based on our location (!) and age, our family rate will increase appx. 300% the first day of 2015, or maybe before that, she wasn’t sure. We’re self employed and self insured and otherly screwed.

    And yet it’s the same high deductible coverage we chose based on the calculation that we rarely use doctors and could cover the deductible when and if we had an unexpected crisis. Curiously they left us with the deductible at the new price, yet we get a bunch of unwanted stuff like birth control, lobbied for by the same special interest groups that also lobbied exceptions for themselves and their peers out of this cesspool.

    I keep thinking about that Simpsons episode where Fat Tony sells the rat milk to schoolchildren, and then when he gets caught, he argues that he didn’t do anything wrong because, technically, it’s milk. I just can’t get that image out of my mind.

    A complicit 113th Congress has permitted a rotten son of a bitch to exist in luxury while he attempts to bleed dry the American people, attempts to grant Amnesty to some 11 Million undesirable illegal aliens and eliminate our Christian heritage replacing it with the most prolific killers in history. With over 200 lawyers in but not serving the Congress and the citizens who elected them, Dereliction of duty and breach of their oath of office demands an Article V Constitutional Convention, new elections to replace the entire congress, Repeal the XVII th Amendment to put senatorial authority and judgment back into the hands of the individual states, reduce the size of the federal Bureaucracy by half, eliminate the redundancies in Governmental Agencies, repeal the federal income tax and the entire tax code, set a reasonable compensation package for those we choose to represent us and lastly but most importantly indict Obama, H. Clinton, Holder, Panetta and Dempsey for their multiple High Crimes and Misdemeanors that include Treason and Murder. We owe this much to our courageous founders to our heavenly Father and to our progeny now burdened with insurmountable debt.

    I am sick and tired that human life has been politicized to the degree that it is today. Actually, everything has been politicized. Nothing is important unless it can be tied to the next election. How did we ever allow this to happen?

      How did we ever allow this to happen?

      The Marxists incrementally took control of public education, the news and entertainment media and the churches. Through the use of propaganda, they effectively brainwashed the public to exchange liberty for government largesse. Gradually, like the proverbial frog in boiling water, half the population developed some dependency upon the federal behemoth. Those that administer the government are enriched greatly by the system and in many cases are insulated from the laws to which the people are subject. The Marxists have been wildly successful to the point that we now live in a Bizarro world where up is down, right is wrong and good is evil. These are all eventualities foreseen by those who founded this nation and realized that our form of government would only work for a moral and upright citizenry. We are no long moral or upright.

      • Wolfthatknowsall

        We elected people who were willing to compromise with the Left, rather than crush it.

        • The March Hare

          Slight correction. We elected people who were ON the left as well as people willing to compromise with them. Sometimes knowingly by the left, sometimes unwittingly by the middle-of-the-roaders or low info voters.

            I can agree with this …

        • soldout_in_sf

          People on the left are what made this country great for the working man. People on the right are to blame for 30+ years of failed “trickle up” economics that gutted the middle class. And the saddest thing is that you still think the wealthy should pay less in taxes.

          • krowbro

            I see the indoctrination has completely taken root in you. Congratulations, you are a walking, talking, leftist automaton. Try doing a little research before you spout this leftist drivel. My suggestion is to start with a little research on the Federal Reserve, fractional reserve banking and fiat money. There lies your answer for how the middle class is being glutted. The Federal Reserve was established by the left by the way. If after doing said research you still feel that the left is what made this country great, then come back and tell us why. I’ll be waiting with bated breath.

          • Wolfthatknowsall

            I know something that is even more sad (not that I agreed with your basic premise). It’s that people on the Left don’t understand that their politics merely advances the cause tyranny and murder-in-the-mass.

          One anecdote does not negate a statistic of millions. Also note that even if this Left-wing media person (he’s no journalist, since he’s obviously desperate to rehabilitate the image of Obamacare) is correct about her new premiums being lower than she thought, it’s only because she qualifies for a Federal subsidy>/i> – in other words, my money!

          “Lowering” health care costs by forcing me to pay for them at gunpoint isn’t progress, frodo, it’s pure evil – more income redistribution. Sticking someone else with your costs is not the same thing as lowering the cost – maybe you’re still capable of realizing that, and maybe not.

          Obamacare is a disaster, and it’s evil, and we’ll never rest until we’ve driven a stake through its heart. Remember, the moment Republicans have a majority in the Senate and a Republican President, it’s gone.

    This is why the employer mandate was illegally delayed….to prevent a tsunami of insurance plans being cancelled all at once.

    We are only seeing the effects on individual health insurance plans.

    Next year, we will see the effects on employer health insurance plans.”

    And that is EXACTLY the REAL reason the employer mandate was illegally delayed a year. In 2014, an estimated 93 million will lose their employer-sponsored policies and be forced into a vastly more expensive and vastly inferior one-size-fits-all KommieKare policy. This illegal delay was to try to avoid ALL of the Rats being kicked out of office in 2014.

  • artistbrad

    Any other “American” would have been fired, fined, &/or definitely punished for such behavior! His videos when he was entering Congress confirm his thoughts and intentions for a single payer health system. The Media is also at fault for “over looking” things called “FACTS”! FACTS can be proven, where as lies and opinions CANNOT! There is ABSOLUTELY NO ACCOUNTABILITY, NO INTEGRITY, and NO HONOR in this administration! Wasn’t the BIG selling point of OBAMACARE “You can keep your current plan & Doctor if you like…period?” Doesn’t THAT suggest that people were comfortable with their existing plans then? WHY CHANGE? I see another “Gettysburg” coming in the NEAR future!

  • artistbrad

    That’s another GREAT point Dr Davis….. the VERY people (aka idiots) that designed this “WONDERFUL AFFORDABLE” Healthcare Plan do NOT want any part of it themselves. To top that off… WE (the tax payers) are paying 75% of the Congress’s Health Plan which covers members of Congress, their staffs AND families. If Obamacare is SOOO GOOD _ WHY aren’t the “creators” taking advantage of it????? (RED FLAG…..RED FLAG…..RED FLAG). And then when the GOP tries to make ALL CONGRESS use the Obamacare Health Coverage, Harry Reid rejects all attempts and has the balls to blame the GOP for the shutdown. How many lies does it take the average American before they realize what is REALLY happening?

  • artistbrad

    According to what I’ve seen so far and researched, the IRS cannot place leins or take money from individual taxpayers for refusing to “sign-up” for Obamacare. The ONLY way the IRS can get money is IF you get a refund! So, if you “refigure” your withholding so you “break even” – the IRS CANNOT take money from you. (besides – that is a smarter way to go financially – but I know a lot of people who like that “BIG” check!

    • NAHALKIDES

      Good point. Each of us has the responsibility to do what he can to sabotage Obamacare and interfere with it to the extent possible. One way to do that is to defy the “law” and then dare the IRS to try to collect the “tax” (really a criminal penalty) which they can’t do unless you have a refund, and even then you could probably contest it in court.

      • artistbrad

        I really don’t think we need to sabotage it… it will self-destruct by itself (as it already has started to do). My BIGGER worry is Obama enacting “Martial Law” – then the Constitution, all the Laws of the Land, & life as we know it will pretty much be over!

  • NAHALKIDES

    Excellent article by Vadum. I haven’t heard the “exchanges” described so accurately before – “artificial, bureaucrat-created cartels that merely mimic free, competitive markets”. Republicans need to start calling Obama a serial liar with the kinds of details given here every day until it finally sinks in to low-information voters.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    Obama’s reelection was a fraud. He never would have won reelection if the people that voted for him had known the truth about Obamacare. Indeed, Obama was the official spokesperson for Obamacare and he lied through his teeth to win reelection. Obamacare is not what he said it would be. Thus, the spineless Republicans need to grow a spine, impeach him, and remove him from office because his reelection is illegitimate, but all I hear is crickets.

    Republicans are piling on the President for saying about the Affordable Care Act that “if you like your insurance plan you can keep it,” in light of millions of Americans in the private-insurance market (covering about 5 percent of us) now seeing their rates soar or policies cancelled. What Priebus and other Republicans don’t say is that even before the Act went into effect, individual insurance plans typically had to be renewed annually, many were cancelled without warning, and year-to-year rates were already soaring. The Act allows insurers to continue offering their old plans, but many insurers are choosing not to. In other words, the Act isn’t the culprit; the insurers are. Obama is being skewered for failing to warn Americans what they should already have known: that the market for private insurance is totally unreliable. Which is why we needed the Affordable Care Act in the first place (and why it would have been even better as a single-payer add-on to Medicare and Social Security).

    • Chris Behme

        Chris – I work in IT, I own my San Francisco house, I am a private pilot and aircraft owner. What have you accomplished in life?

        The ACA is as far removed from socialism as Red Lobster restaurant. It uses private insurers to provide health insurance to the majority of the population. If ONLY it were a single payer system, we could get rid of the health insurance industry entirely and stop allowing our health care dollars to pay from executive jets.

When did Spain and England open a Target?). we have plenty of people in “government” who live the high life on our dime while pretending to work for our benefit…. dear, I hope you know a lot more about flying than you do about health insurance or socialized medicine, btw (aircraft owner) there is some totally off the wall braggadocio ;-)

      “The Act allows insurers to continue offering their old plans” = LIE

      the aca incorporated the MANDATORY MINIMUM COVERAGE’S EX. the mandatory inclusion of birth control. ergo, a male with an individual policy that did not necessitate BC could not keep his plan as he did not have that coverage.

      “the Act isn’t the culprit; the insurers are” = LIE

      that is a remarkable lie. why would an insurance company be at fault for following the law as they are required to do? what does the insurance company have to gain by destroying their business? the aca is the culprit, and this is only the start.

      “Obama is being skewered for failing to warn Americans what they should already have known” = LIE

      Obama intentionally and willfully LIED to the American people and in case you were not aware is an IMPEACHABLE offence.

      “the market for private insurance is totally unreliable” = LIE

      the aca is nothing more than a blatant power grab transcending all state lines.

      “Which is why we needed the Affordable Care Act in the first place (and why it would have been even better as a single-payer add-on to Medicare and Social Security).” = LIE

      the aca is an attack on the individual freedoms and liberties of Americans to have rights that allow them to choose what they want. the aca is a wealth redistribution tactic that will fail a miserable death because it cannot be funded in its current form; understand that this is not about 30 million uninsured, it is at a minimum closer to 100 million people. the 30 million who were uninsured when this was discussed over 4 years ago plus the new 60 to 70 million people who have left the work force due to obummers failed economic policy over the past 5 years.

      lastly, the aca is hijacking health care which represents 1/6th of the US economy. NOW, ask yourself this while you are basking in your newly minted Socialist Utopian state; if you accept as is the case that government cannot create employment, what will happen when the eventuality sinks in and people learn that the aca was the precursor to the socialists cornucopia of a single payer system? how will the remaining 5/6ths of the economy pay for the 1/6th that disappeared?

      answer me that socialist.

        You really should stop listening to Mark Levin. He’s a loudmouthed idiot.

        The ACA is no more “socialist” than baseball (I was going to say football but the NFL actually is socialist in the way it spreads its wealth around to the franchises).

          Have you ever listened to Mark Levin? Or listening to an expert spout constitutionalism is more than you can stomach?

          Brainwashed, at the very least. An ignorant fool drinking deeply of the cherry (red) flavored kool-aid, at worst.

      Insurers are following the law. They can`t sell the old policies because they are now illegal under Obamacare. Obama knew this all along, he is the liar and chief. That` what he`s good at, lying and deception.
