Have more people lost health insurance due to Obamacare than have gained it? The Administration ducks and dodges because the answer is yes–More Americans have lost coverage than gained it, and millions more will lose insurance next year as everything as been made more complex and more expensive. But by trying to conceal the truth, they hope to suppress public outrage.
The theory is that Americans won’t be outraged if they don’t realize what government is doing.
Manipulation by the Obama crowd is so bad that a Cabinet officer was warned that she’s obstructing justice by concealing Obamacare information.
Kathleen Sebelius, was warned that her refusal to inform Congress and her efforts to block third parties from giving information are criminal obstruction of justice. They need to track hundreds of millions of dollars of Obamacare contracts and how directives followed political needs rather than the law.
Now HHS refuses to answer reporters who ask this simple question: Have more people lost health insurance due to Obamacare than have gained it? They duck and dodge because the answer is yes–More Americans have lost coverage, and millions will lose coverage next year. Everything has been made more complex and more expensive. Affordable insurance has been outlawed. But by covering up that simple fact, they hope to suppress public outrage.

‘Obstruction of justice: Key Republican investigator says HHS secretary Sebelius is criminally liable for stopping staff from speaking about disastrous Obamacare website
- The Department of Health and Human Services wrote to Obamacare contractors telling them not to respond for Congress’ document requests
- Obstruction of justice is a criminal offense punishable by up to five years in federal prison
- House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa is warning Secretary Kathleen Sebelius not to get between him and potential witnesses
- HHS has already been subpoenaed for the documents Issa is seeking from the healthcare.gov website contractors, but Sebelius hasn’t produced them

The Obamacare website is still broken. The White House says it’s better than two months ago, and that’s true. But it still is losing a lot of customer information. And even though you’re supposed to purchase health insurance there, they don’t even have a way for you to pay for it.
After two months, healthcare.gov is still like a toy–a broken toy.
The Obamacare website is like a toy computer where you punch buttons, but nothing happens. Even if you think you signed up for health insurance, the White House says please call back in a couple of weeks to double-check, because a lot of consumer information still gets lost and you may not have been enrolled after all.
Here’s more: They don’t have a way for customers to pay. So they plan for the federal treasury to estimate the charges and send a government check to insurance companies. Then later they’ll bill the customers.
But they don’t seem to know whether that’s even legal.
The White House still dodges lots of questions, like how many people have actually signed up. But people in their 20′s, who face the steepest premium hikes, are staying away in droves, and many are questioning why they ever voted for Obama.

In his explanations last week about his false statements on keeping your health insurance and about the healthcare.gov website, President Obama justified his falsehoods by saying he didn’t know the actual facts when he made his repeated public statements. But making false claims without checking the facts is fraud.
President Obama has lost the trust of many Americans.
President Obama’s explanations show he doesn’t understand honesty.
He justifies his false statements by saying he didn’t know the actual facts. But making false claims without checking the facts is fraud. Obama said he assumed most people would get better and cheaper insurance policies through Obamacare, and only a handful would not, so that made it okay to tell people they could keep their policies.
That’s no excuse for lying.
Obama also pleaded ignorance about the healthcare.gov website. When he made glowing promises about buying insurance as easily as booking a plane ticket or buying a book, he says didn’t know about the huge software problems. But it was his duty to check and make sure before making promises.
If this is how he thinks, how many other falsehoods are we hearing from the President on national security, spending, immigration, and other matters?Share this item:
Rather than making health care more secure, President Obama has stolen insurance away from millions of people.
Many of his fellow Democrats followed Obama like zombies. They repeated the President’s promise that people who liked their health insurance could keep it under Obamacare.
Obamacare deliberately outlaws the health insurance carried by millions of Americans. It forces people to buy expensive policies loaded with extra features required by government. That may be full insurance, but it’s not affordable.
Now several million people have lost their coverage. But only 100-thousand have signed up for the new Obamacare policies, but most haven’t actually bought the insurance because they haven’t paid for it yet. Again, it’s expensive. But under another part of Obamacare, a million people have been added to Medicaid, and that is 100% paid for by us taxpayers.
Obamacare has put several million people into limbo, while making us pay a premium price for the privilege.Share this item:
The White House insists everything is under control with Obamacare, and now they want immediate passage of another extreme makeover law–on immigration. That would include amnesty for millions already here, plus loosened laws that would bring a projected 30-million more people into the U.S. within the next decade. And we don’t have jobs for them.
Even as Obamacare remains a fiasco, President Obama wants action on an extreme makeover of immigration law.
Democrat Senators tell President Obama he faces a crisis of confidence. His health care law remains bogged down by a website that doesn’t work while millions of Americans lose their insurance due to Obamacare.
Pollsters report Obama’s approval rating is at an all-time low.
The White House insists everything will be fixed, and now they want immediate passage of another extreme makeover law–on immigration. That would include amnesty for millions already here, plus loosened laws that would bring a projected 30-million more people into the U.S. within the next decade.
But job creation under Obama is so slow that there’s not enough work for the people already here.
President Obama’s liberal ideas and anti-business approach are causing enough problems already. We need to pull back on his authority, not give him more.

Parts of Obamacare were delayed until after the 2012 elections. Many votes would have changed had the insurance cancellations and premium hikes become known last fall. Politicians who simply want to delay parts of Obamacare aren’t looking out for you; they’re looking out for their own re-election next year. They ought to be talking about repeal instead.
Some politicians propose a one-year delay for parts of Obamacare. Big deal. If something is poison, why would you ever want to drink it?
When an idea is bad, we should get rid of it. Only in politics is a bad idea considered okay if you just put it off for a year, but then force people to live with it.
In Obamacare, the worst parts were scheduled not to kick in until after the 2012 elections. Had people known last fall about all the insurance cancellations and premium hikes, it would have been a major factor in the elections.
When politicians talk about extending the deadline for people to sign up for Obamacare insurance, or to delay the individual mandate, they are not looking out for you. They’re willing to force you to comply with Obamacare. They just don’t want you to get mad until after they’re safely re-elected.
They ought to support repeal.Share this item:
After telling us it was ready to rock, President Obama first said the Obamacare website had a glitch. Three weeks later he called it kinks. Next thing you know, he’ll say it’s just a wrinkle. Yet the CEO of Aetna says the problems run so deep they might take three years to fix. Three years.
This may be one of the biggest-ever failures by government.
It would be quicker to use a carrier pigeon than using the Obamacare website. Yet taxpayers spent hundreds of millions of dollars and the website is supposed to allocate hundreds of billions in subsidies.
President Obama bragged how great and convenient this was going to be. He castigated Republicans for trying to postpone any part of Obamacare.
Then Obama said the website had a glitch. Three weeks later he calls it kinks. Next thing you know, he’ll say it’s just a wrinkle. Yet the CEO of Aetna says the problems run so deep they might take three years to fix. Three years!
The problem isn’t the website. It’s that Obamacare is so complex, intrusive and expensive–as people are finding out.
President Obama seems totally unwilling to admit that he’s made a huge mistake. And that refusal stands in the way of correcting things.

Which is worst?
The enormous extra costs of Obamacare for Americans who pay for their health insurance?
Or hearing the wild claims that costs are cheaper, when it’s because you’re paying more for others to get freebies?
Or is it the hundreds of millions spent for an Obamacare website that doesn’t work?
The startup of Obamacare is world-class incompetence, made worse by world-class arrogance.
When you have three years and an endless supply of taxpayer money, you should produce results.
But not when you’re using flawed blueprints.
Even if the website worked flawlessly, people trying to enroll in Obamacare would have sticker shock.
You cannot add expensive new features to health insurance, plus subsidize millions of people who get free or low-cost care, without huge increases for everyone who pays their own way. Talking only about premiums is deceptive because increased deductibles and co-pays are also out-of-pocket.
Then a website that cost hundreds of millions of dollars and still doesn’t work becomes the ultimate example of incompetency.
But the ultimate example of arrogance is that the President and other architects of Obamacare continue to brag about it. They claim it just takes time. Hello! They already had three years!Share this item:
