7.1 Million? REPORT: Actual net gain of PAID Obamacare policies among uninsured Americans LESS THAN ONE MILLION



The Daily Mail highlights a new study that suggests that out of the touted 7.1 million Obamacare signups, less than one million paying customers were previously uninsured:

Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly cancelled because they didn’t meet Obamacare’s strict minimum requirements.

Still, he claimed that ‘millions of people who have health insurance would not have it’ without his insurance law.’

The unpublished RAND study – only the Los Angeles Times has seen it – found that just 23 per cent of new enrollees had no insurance before signing up.

And of those newly insured Americans, just 53 per cent have paid their first month’s premiums.

If those numbers hold, the actual net gain of paid policies among Americans who lacked medical insurance in the pre-Obamacare days would be just 858,298.

That’s it? I thought Obamacare was supposed to cover 30 million people who didn’t have health insurance before? Now it looks like they haven’t even reached one million.

One thing that everyone seems to ignore about Obamacare is that it is and always was impossible to make health care and/or health insurance more affordable by inserting a huge new government bureaucracy between patients and health care providers. There were already too many middlemen that must be eliminated before health care/insurance will ever become more affordable to the masses.

How many of those who even signed up are the coveted young who will be subsidizing the elderly and the sick?

Then, you have to consider how many of those paying got subsidized. Actually, a discount.

The reason why people are uninsured is because they dont want to pay for insurance and they don’t want to pay a fee for services. They think the government will magically pay for them to see a doctor or have a luxurious ride to the hospital and a stacation at their hospital of choice. Democrats want a free ride and Obama promises the the sky is the limit. And hard working middleclass taxpayers foot the bill

The underlying objectives of Obamacare are not to have more people covered, better care, or cost savings.

The objectives of Obamacare are to expand the tax and regulatory control of government. It is designed to transfer wealth from the self reliant to those who will vote for more tax and regulatory control over the self reliant.

Hussein Obama is proud of this success. Another blow to America. is another win for global governance.

So it seems the Government is now subsidizing 6 or 7 million peoples’ insurance premiums with money it took from the rest of us.

That’s about 6 or 7 guaranteed Government Loyalists.

Success for Hussein.

Just like Obama, it’s name sake unconstitutional legislation law Obamacare, aka ACA, is a fraud, a scam, a federal govt power and control law over the people of America, disguised under the cloak of healthcare, which is literally destroying millions of jobs, businesses, families real private healthcare insurance-ie; American people’s lives, which the scary part is that the actual law itself not yet being fully implemented because of Obama’s royal delaying decrees, which if fully implemented would absolutely terrify, horrify the American people, resembling nothing short of most iron fisted fascist and communist state regimes, or even worse, the British Healthcare system.

Shocker? NOT! I have to shop for a plan before the end of the year because my current plan for this year is not open for renewal because of Obamacare — didn’t fit the parameters. Worse is I have been unemployed for about three years. Yes, I am still looking for work.

This administration has a pattern of lies. 7.1 million is most likely another one.

BTW, if you get a call from your insurance company, it may not be the case. A real company would send you a letter of the status of your plan. Do not say your credit card or SS #. There is a scam going around.

Now that the “deadline” has come and gone, I suspect that Nero Obama’s idiot base of supporters will no longer be signing up in the “massive” numbers that they were on March 31 when the website was down for over 6 hours and no one could sign up. They’ll just have to wait till next year when the rolls open up again and maybe by then they’ll have the website mostly fixed! How many of those who “signed” up were using credit cards or even ids stolen from someone else in say the credit card hacking scheme which targeted Target and other stores? Over 6 million of those who signed up signed up because Nero Obamacare cost them their health insurance and the democrats believe that these people will forgive and forget that come November. Sadly the Big Whigs in the GOP believe they will too. I can’t for the… Read more »

jrt, “hard weeding” is a nice way of putting it! What is to be gained by continuing to reward democrats masquerading as republicans with election and re-election? These are wolves in sheep’s clothing. They are as evil as the democrats. They are collusionists and collaborationists with Nero Obama’s agenda to destroy and subdue our nation to totally foreign ideologies. They are the Vichy French republicans and Nero Obama is the “Tubal-Cain” of our epoch, of our nation. Rush today talked about his absolute disgust at the total silence by the republicans to Nero Obama’s taking a victory lap because he sandbagged 7 million people into sigining up for Nero Obama’s Unaffordable Heath Care Act. But when you keep rewarding cowardice and collaboration with evil with election and re-election what do you really expect to happen? Rush has talked a lot about how Nero Obama convinced a lot of insurance companies… Read more »

The first black president has made certain that there will not be another black president for many years but he has also taken great steps to ensure that the democratic party will be the new minority party for a decade, perhaps even longer. His lawless disgusting behavior has empowered our enemies and embarrassed our friends. The only people he ever made war on are the American people. He is a ridiculous fiasco,

How many people here actually believed that Obama’s administration would not claim they reached 7 million by April Fool’s day? How many of you? None? Here’s why:

Conversation heard in the back room of the White House:

Obama: “Hey, Joe. Are you done yet?”

Biden: “Just about. My fingers are sore and I ran out of ink in my pen, but I think I crossed the 7 million mark about 14 sigs ago.”

Less than a million have new worthless coverage they can not afford.

Cost 2 Trillion. That would make them all millionaires with a simple transfer of wealth payment. Over two million each. Huge cost two million per person covered.

And how many of those newly insured are insured at the cost of taxpayers? If I didn’t have to pay for it, I would sign-up too. (not really, but you get my point)

The number of actually insured was never that high. Obamacare supporters were not going to enroll in large numbers since they did not actually want it for themselves. And it cost money.

However, like any liberal, as soon as they found they could enroll, but not actually pay, and the whitehouse would tout that number as a win, they came out of the woodwork.

I am actually suprised that the number of enrolled but not paid is not in double digits. I guess the libs were not convinced they would get a bill if they enrolled.

Obama’s ACA victory lap will last shorter than his recovery summer lap did. Less Americans have health insurance today than prior to Bammy-Care and they are spending more with much higher deductibles while many have lost their hospitals and doctors.

Regarding the Rand study and less than 1 million new paid policies, I’m reminded of a CBO study. It projected that by the end of 2023, there will be 30 million Americans that will not have healthcare insurance,

Oddly, the same number of Americans Barry, Harry, Nancy and every Democrat who voted the ACA promised would have health insurance who were uninsured.

Obamacare is already dead and Barry’s legacy program is an abject failure.

Does the “previously uninsured” include people who were forced out of their jobs due to Obamacare, and were therefore uninsured when they signed up?

Regarding mendacity… Obama’s enough to drive one to drink. If one can’t live with mendacity… one can live with drink. True enough! But if I have one beer… I fall asleep on the couch. So I’ll just have to find a way to live with mendacity.
