On Fox News this morning, Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) flat out says what many of us have been suggesting for weeks. That the supposed six million number touted by the White House is meaningless.

“I don’t think it means anything, I think they’re cooking the books on this.”

“People want the answers to this,” says Barrasso. “They also want to know, once all this is said and done, what kind of insurance will people actually have. Will they be able to keep their doctor? What will it actually cost them?”

For all the selling and all the pitching and all the bragging, these are the basic questions Americans still don’t have the answers to. And with people’s premiums rocketing up, people losing their doctors, people thinking they are insured who aren’t, and the likes of Harry Reid blaming user error, it’s the administration’s failing message that is compounding their failing program.

They want you to believe everything is going well. As Barrasso notes, it all sounds like a lot of hogwash.
