CNN Calls the Obama Administration LIARS

In an article titled “The Truth Behind Obamacare 6 Million Figure,” CNN takes the administration to task for touting information that is, at the very least “misleading.”

The Obama administration been advertising that 6 Million people have healthcare because of Obamacare.

 "Now more than 6 million Americans have been enrolled in Marketplace or Medicaid coverage and are getting peace of mind, knowing that they can get the care they need without losing everything they've worked and saved for," wrote Phil Schiliro, who returned to the White House last month to oversee health care policy initiatives.

Gene Sperling, the director of the National Economic Council, went on "Meet the Press" recently, he simply cited the 6 million figure without further explanation.

Sadly, while both Mr. Sperling and Mr. Schiliro would like everyone to believe that through the magic of Obamacare some 6 million people who were previously uninsured now have health insurance… the number is simply a mirage.

obama-lied-- 2.1 million Americans signed up for private health insurance through the federal and state exchanges through the end of December.

-- 3.9 million people learned they're eligible for Medicaid or the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) in October and November.

The squishiness lies in the Medicaid number. The 3.9 million figure includes people who were already on Medicaid and are just renewing…

While CNN sees “squishiness” in the Medicaid number, I think there is worse here.

Let’s start with the 2.1 million Americans who signed up for private insurance through the exchanges.

Since October 1, 2013 almost 5 million people have lost their coverage due to Obamacare. Doesn’t it stand to reason that many of these people are the ones who have signed up through the private exchanges?

Similarly, where CNN sees “squishiness” because many of the Medicaid and CHIP enrollees are actually re-enrollees, some of the new Medicaid members are there because they were forced off of their own insurance.

 

If you add all of this together, the Obamacare “successes” are all self-made. They destroyed 5 million people’s healthcare coverage, forced them into Obamacare and then pretended that they somehow accomplished something. It’s sick. It’s twisted. It’s the Obama Administration handling business as usual.

CNN is deeply imbedded into Barry's colon. I won't expect much more from this.
