ObamaCare Isn’t Working

So, President Obama will leave office with one legacy and zero quotes for 8 years of running up the debt, hiding the true unemployment numbers, creating ISIS, flattening the economy, destroying our international reputation. Beginning with his first pledge, “I will close Gitmo” to his great plan which bears his name, it will be only this: our Navy Seals who detest this president killed Osama bin Laden. With the repeal of ObamaCare even his one quote will leave with that, “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor”. Regardless of who is elected and takes office in 2017, ObamaCare will go simply because it fails to accomplish the goal of getting the uninsured insured. Simple as that. Like the name it bears, it doesn’t work.

UnitedHealth recently reported that it may lose $1 billion over 2015-2016 on ObamaCare. Aetna just announced they lost money on their ObamaCare business in 2015. This is why everyone else is getting huge increases in their premiums or cancellation letters. This is why the premiums for ObamaCare are up for 2016 as with the deductibles and the enrollment is expected to be down. This is why HHS has made it easier for customers to wait until they are sick to buy insurance, fewer have it. This is why emergency rooms are full across the country. Basically, most people took some kind of hit on their insurance so 9 million mostly illegal visitors can benefit.

This from Huffington, Huffington, the left wing rag.

“Obamacare’s poor enrollment increases the likelihood of repeal

For all of the taxes and regulations and spending contained in Obamacare, what’s remarkable about the law is that it has only reduced the percentage of U.S. residents without health insurance by 2.7 percentage points between 2008 and 2014. The total U.S. population in 2014 was 318.3 million, meaning that the total impact of Obamacare on the uninsured population, on a 2014-adjusted basis, was around 8.6 million.

Remember that only a fraction of that 2.7 percent are U.S. citizens who can vote. “It has been reported that only a third of the uninsured are even registered to vote,” complained New York Sen. Chuck Schumer (D.) in 2014. Obamacare, said Schumer, “made no political sense.”

Predicted v Actual ACA Enrollment Growth

Also note that 8.6 million is a far lower figure than the number of people currently enrolled in Obamacare-sponsored products. Elsewhere in the latest Budget and Economic Outlook, CBO stated that “average monthly enrollment of newly eligible Medicaid beneficiaries was…9.6 million [in 2015] compared with 6.1 million in 2014.” Adding that to exchange enrollment gets you to roughly 24 million people on Obamacare-sponsored products.

The Obama administration often boasts about that much larger figure, claiming that 24 million people have been helped by Obamacare. But the government’s official estimates are that it’s under 9 million. Of which only a fraction can vote in the 2016 election.

Compare that to the number of people whose plans have been canceled (6 million), or the number of people who’ve had their premiums or their taxes hiked (dozens of millions). And that’s why Obamacare remains gravely vulnerable to repeal.”
