That's a 400,000 increase from the 7.1 million that Obama announced last week at the end of the law's open enrollment period. The figure exceeded expectations, a surprise election-year success for the law after a disastrous roll-out.
Sebelius disclosed the new figure during a hearing Thursday before the Senate Finance Committee.
If anyone believes any number this administration gives out, I have an unused bridge in Brooklyn I want to sell. It could be more "transparent" if details were offered such as numbers signed up by age, had no insurance, were Medicaid enrollees, etc. I doubt that this will ever see the light of day and I doubt that anybody in our current legislature will press the issue. Even if they did, this administration has been dishonest which would leave their responses in question, as the 7.5 million figure.
Hilariously uninteresting dribble, you HAVE to know that those “Breath Tax” numbers are WAY OFF….. If you believe this article, PLEASE contact me! I have some rare one of a kind items to sell you.
i dont understand why u think people would not want health care that they could afford and could not be denied because of preexisting conditions. obama ran on that, and he won. i know u guys seem to think u are the majority, even after losing the election, but u are not.
HOW ABOUT SOMEONE GIVE YOU A NEW BRAIN
Even the secret service developed a drinking problem over obama care
Not only has the web site failed.........so has the calculator they are using!!!!!
You can only wish...it's tough when reality doesn't live up to Republican expectations of failure....
So many detractors... So much hatred
Why is it automatically called hatred when one disagrees with any democrat proposal???The Conservative's I know realize hatred is a wasteful, debilitating affliction.It robs one of the ability to think objectively and analytically.It's obvious by your intolerance of others idea's that you are afflicted with hatred.Hatred, like ignorance, can be cured with education and the desire to think objectively.Stop judging others by your own morals.
I guess everything is relative. The joy the administration feels because they simply set a goal of sign-ups, ignoring where those sign-ups have come from and forgetting the original goal of insuring the uninsured is misplaced. It is hard to tell people who are desperate to feel happy about a program that punishes the middle-class that it isn't achieving its original intent. Ok, wallow in your self proclaimed success while I pay 40% higher premiums for my health care. There are many more like me than like you. Good luck.
I don't believe you. Prove that you are now paying 40% more. Because if you had crappy insurance before, you were allowed a one year exemption to keep it. My insurance is less expensive under the ACA. Better coverage and no caps or denial of services. I am 50 and NOT subsidised.
Another entitlement for the lazy losers that is paid for by the working americans. That what the Democrats due. Cater to their base and keep them dependent on government so they can own their vote. They will have 60 % of america on some entitlements regardless if it destroys this great country so they can stay in office.
That's obamas goal from the start. The more dependent, the more power the democrats have.
Every time I read a post like yours I have to laugh. The states receiving the most in handouts from the Federal Government are RED states which means they vote REPUBLICAN not Democrat. So your post just shows how uninformed you are. The more government hand outs a states receives the more Republican that state votes. Check it out if you don't believe me. Of course you Republicans never were big on facts. So if 60% are on entitlements and we know that 60% is voting overwhelming REPUBLICAN you would have to say the REPUBLICANS are destroying this great country.
What are you drinking? There are more Democrats and illegals on the dole than Republicans. Which party thinks that they know best? The one in the White House.
Do the dwindling Obama supporters still believe the lies from this administration? If so, how pathetic can you be?
If there are so many lies coming from the Obama administration, why is it that that every accusation made by the 'publicans has been proven unsubstantiated or false? How sad it is that the "party of distortions" must push a lie by repeating it over and over to make it a truth in the eyes of those who follow blindly.
Sort of like Obama. If he says it enough times, he actually believes it and thinks it is true. I guess Soros will start to work on Ugly Hillary now since the Big O's time is nearly up. Thank God! Oh wait, he does not believe in Him.
Signed up seems to be a phased used but never the termed paid up. Insurance companies are already preparing us for Shock and Awe. Recents statements from them about the demograhpics being the sickest people coming on board and not the younger, healthier ones who are needed to make it a viable effort. Once the fall rolls around and the new premiums are posted, then we will see if ACA is a good program for all. I hope so since it will be a very large expense to the taxpayers for years to come.
The new gimmick is that they won't release info before the 2014 mid term elections. Obama did the same thing before his 2012 election. Do you think people would have voted for Obama had they known about keeping their insurance and doctors was not going to be possible? Lie, Lie, Lie and until people figure it out by then it's too late for them to do anything about it.
Just as expencive as the tax cuts for the so called "job creators". Those tax cuts and corporate welfare policies have made the banks in the Camans rich. At the same time cost 5.7 million Americans good paying health insurance provide manufacturing jobs. Health insurance was a big part of benefits given to manufacturing workers. Corporate America didn't mant to pay these benefits anymore so the lobbied for lower tarrifs and more free trade agreements. Once they got them they moved American manufacturing jobs over seas. That created an income problem an unemployment problem and then it contributed to the uninsured problem. But the GOP wont tell you this. They wont tell you they cut food stamps but increased crop insurance subsidies for corporate farms. They cut military spending. Not on tanks but on retired military personal retirement pay. Please the GOP is doing and has done more to hurt the working class Americans then they want you to know. Why don't you ever see Fox news talking about the loss of 5.7 million manufacturing jobs. Because it was the GOP policies that caused it.
