Why Should We Trust the ObamaCare Enrollment Numbers?

I’m writing this before the release of the ObamaCare enrollment numbers. Why should we trust any number this administration reveals to us? There’s no way for us to check it.

Obama lied about keeping our existing plans and doctors, what makes anyone think that he’s going to tell the truth about how many people have enrolled?

No matter what numbers they give, the administration will spin them in their favor. Look who the spin doctor is going to be for this side show:

“The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services will release a report on the numbers at 3:30 p.m., and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius will discuss the findings on a press call then.”

Here’s a bit more of the spin:

“The White House has been trying to lower already low expectations for the numbers, as press secretary Jay Carney did, yet again, at his daily briefing Wednesday. ‘No one will be satisfied with the numbers because they will be below what we sought’ prior to the launch of the website, he told reporters.’”

A new poll shows that the trust factor is starting to dog the president. The trustworthy factor is starting to show up in polls, as CNN is reporting:

“[F]or the first time in Quinnipiac polling, more voters say the President is not trustworthy. The new survey was conducted last week and over the weekend, mostly after Obama offered an apology on Thursday to people who are losing their insurance because of changes from the federal health care law.

“When selling health care reform in his first term, the President repeatedly assured Americans they could keep their plans, if they liked them. However, that has not turned out to be the case, with some Americans holding certain plans getting cancellation notices from their providers.”

Neither the lies nor Obama’s falling poll numbers matter. We are stuck with ObamaCare unless the Republicans offer an offensive, an offensive that does not include helping Obama fix what is an unconstitutional and economy-killing piece of legislation.

    Dream on.

    It's now law, and nothing short of an Act of God or a civil uprising will change it. Republicans are as useless as tits on a bull.

    The Affordable Health Care Act, ObamaCare, does not make us healthier; it
    redistributes wealth into the hands of the medical profession. Fear robs
    us with frequent medical examinations and follow-ups and drugs that are not
    needed. Most of the cost of medical service goes to those who house and
    watch over people as they rest after an incident of concern; that should be the
    family. (hospitals and nursing homes, etc.)

    Each family of a family pays health insurance; if they became their own insurance
    and worked together they could save a lot of money. God's plan is to live
    off the land and be healthy from fresh foods, sunshine and exercise, not
    enslaved to glorified slavery that is polluting our air, land, water and food
    making young and old diseased. Our world system has failed and we need to
    back out of it while we still can; because greater oppression and extinction
    are at our doorsteps. Pray, because we could quickly have a garden
    paradise lifestyle that solves our many physical, economic, international and
    spiritual problems. The way is prepared. Trust in God, not in man.

    My first thought when seeing and hearing the occupier-in-chief in 2008 was "he's evil." For 5 years now, I've never trusted anything coming from this gov't run by thieves, liars, traitors, and corrupt, wicked scumbags. Furthermore, I don't foresee that changing in the future.

    Like everything else this administration does, these numbers include shoppers who have put their order in a "shopping cart", as a maybe. When you put an item in a "shopping cart", do you consider it a sold (closed) deal? Of course not. They just don't know how to do anything above board..

    One more thing, those on the Right should just allow this whole plan to implode. There is no way this ACA law can survive and the longer we let it play out, the better it's going to be for those who believe it was a terrible plan of redistribution. Can't wait for 2014.

    I can't believe he would lie. Let's see, he's a politician, a Marist, a lawyer, prez of the down low club, married to moo, said unemployment would never reach 7%, didn't know about Fast and Furious, didn't know about the investigation into news people, didn't know about IRS abuse, didn't know about Benghazi, was on the edge of his seat during Benghazi, personally shot Bin Laden, and really wasn't drooling on the Indonesian Prime Minister, or Beyoncé, or Scarlett, or on and on and on. Did I miss any?

    Unemployment numbers are fixed. Inflation numbers are fixed. President's Approval score number is fixed. They froze the debt clock at 16.7 trillion just 'cause they wanted to - fixed. Election results - fixed. Cost of Obamacare tripled, quadrupled past promised cost. Economy growth rate is a lie.

    Anything with numbers from this administration is NOT true. Nothing, zip, nada.
