Obamacare coverage falls...

Democrats love to listen to people who keep being wrong! 
The number of Americans insured under Obamacare fell by nearly 2 million people between Jan. 31 and mid-March, according to new CMS data that found about 10.3 million still were covered through health law exchanges.
The decline reflects customers failing to pay premiums after they selected plans during the most recent open enrollment period. Roughly 12.2 million people had selected private plans through the federal HealthCare.gov exchanges and the state-run marketplaces that operate in about a dozen states as of the Jan. 31 deadline to sign up.
CMS said high costs and lack of affordability were the most common factors individuals cited when asked why they didn't keep their coverage. A separate report on enrollment trends attributed the drop-off to other factors, including securing a job with employer-sponsored insurance.
So now only 10.3 millions are covered by ACA. This is actually a decline from the 11.1 that were enrolled a year ago. The CBO still projects this number to be well over 20 million sometime in the near future (that extra 10 million is part of the 23 million they say will lose coverage if the wonderous ACA is repealed). Of course they have been projecting that since the beginning. As it stands, the number is decreasing (not increasing).

Democrats insist we should continue to listen to the CBO on Obamacare, in spite of continuously being wrong. Not only wrong, but horribly wrong. Given,Democrats spend most of their time reading stories from the NYT, WaPo, and Politico that are mostly "dead wrong"...  I guess that is sort of par for the course.

As predicted...

KD, Cali has been right and is right still today said...

Cali you have been right the entire way, from the time Obimbo shit this steaming turd to today as it continues to fail.

Not one single promise made about ObamaCarelessness has come true.


I blame BUSH, wait, he had nothing to do with it, oh yeah, we should Blame Trump, yep, let's all shift to that.

Rat, this came to us from the Hospice Blog

TrumpCare Will Leave 23,000,000 Americans Left To Die




What is Worse, is the loss of protection of previous conditions.

Hurry up and die, so we don't have to take a financial risk."

Too bad trump care doesn't kill dumb kansas farmers. BTW...Still waiting for that completed R plan. Wonder when they will get to it. So many distractions, while the obvious occurs in CH's brilliant summary. LOL. My guess it will be worse than the current CBO prediction. No problem for healthy people with good genes.

From the article

The 10.3 million covered individuals include those who selected a plan that began in January or February and had paid their first month's premium

Bet there's been a 20% attrition rate per month since.

Can you say death spiral?

Comey buddy and "independent counsel Robert Mueller has stocked his team with partisan democrats, including s Clinton foundation attorney, and multiple donors to Obama, Clinton, and other dems.

Newt is right. Trump should fire him niw. Its all a big sham.

trump needs to fire mueller, and he also needs to fire the numbskull who selected mueller.

opie said...

And I'd bet you wrong again. Why is Jowls McConnell working trump care behind closed doors??? Could it be worse than the House's bill with its 10% approval or will it toss more off medicaid, which really supports old white people in nursing homes? Does anyone appreciate the economic impact of reducing that aid? I doubt it. LOL

As of March 15, 2017, 10.3 million individuals had effectuated their coverage for February 2017, meaning that they selected a plan that started in
January or February, and had paid their first month’s premium. It is important to note that this number is significantly lower than the 12.2 million
(-1.9 million) individuals, as reported in the March Open Enrollment Report. Therefore, in order to get a complete picture about enrollment
numbers, it is more accurate to highlight the number of people who actually paid their premiums than those who simply selected a plan. This
number will be adjusted for individuals who effectuate their coverage in March 2017.


Looking historically at the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act trends from 2014 through 2017, we also see that a significant number of
people who effectuate coverage, do not stay in their plans for the full year. In March of 2016, 10.8 million people had effectuated coverage
through the Exchanges, and by the end of the year, only 9.1 million remained. The data on drops in effectuated enrollment shows that, on average
since 2014, more than a million enrollees per year have dropped their coverage before the end of the plan year. It is also significant to note that
the 10.3 million number reported today falls below the HHS projections for annual 2017 effectuated enrollment.1

“The only way of addressing their plight is a form of political hospice care,” he said. “These are communities that are on the paths to death. And the question is: How can we make that as comfortable as possible?”

huh.

so rather than try to appeal to white, blue collar, middle class/working class voters, liberals want them to be put down, albeit comfortably, in a form of political hospice. then the immigrants can be swept in, establishing a permanent democrat ruling class.

these fuckers aren't even trying to hide it anymore.

No matter what CH, opines, tweets have consequences.....Me thinks the SCOTUS will say so also. Too bad, rathole. Yeah, he sure has gotten a lot of things done.....all stupid.

Ninth Circuit cites Trump tweet in opinion blocking travel ban

Why the 9th Circuit struck down Trump’s travel order

WASHINGTON — A federal court cited President Trump’s recent tweet on his travel ban in its opinion blocking the executive order from going into effect Monday. The court further pointed to press secretary Sean Spicer’s admission that tweets are official presidential statements.

OH NO! A STRONG REPUBLICAN CRITIC AND RIVAL OF OBAMA ADMITS HE WAS (AND IS) A BETTER WORLD LEADER THAN TRUMP!!!

John McCain: 'As far as American leadership is concerned,' Obama is better than Trump
_____

Sen. John McCain of Arizona gave a harsh critique of President Donald Trump's leadership on the global stage in an interview with The Guardian on Sunday.

McCain, a Republican from Arizona, was asked about Trump's criticism of London Mayor Sadiq Khan in the aftermath of ISIS-claimed terror attacks that rocked the city earlier this month. McCain said that "as far as American leadership is concerned," the US's global standing was better under Obama than under Trump.

McCain, Obama's 2008 general election opponent, frequently criticized Obama's foreign policy while acting as the leading voice on the Senate Armed Services Committee and a leading voice in GOP foreign policy.

BUT EVEN IN HIS WORST DAYS HE WAS BETTER THAN TRUMP, McCAIN ADMITS.

The senate working their best to hide trump care and only leaks have provided details...but pauline and rat take this as a trump victory.


The legislation would repeal major provisions of the Affordable Care Act. Opening it to scrutiny before a vote would be the congressional equivalent of exposing a vampire to sunlight.

That is one mistake Mr. McConnell, a master of the Senate’s dark arts, is not about to make. As one Republican aide put it to Axios on Monday, “We aren’t stupid.” Better to pass a terrible bill in the cover of darkness just as the House did with its version, the American Health Care Act, in the hopes that critics do not have much time to raise a stink. And then there is President Trump, who is standing ready to applaud whatever turkey the Senate produces as long as it gives him a chance to claim a win.

Mr. McConnell’s strategy belies the disingenuous Republican complaint that Democrats jammed the A.C.A., or Obamacare, into law in 2010 without sufficient analysis or discussion. The Republican effort to undo the A.C.A. bears no resemblance whatsoever to that much more thorough exercise. Congress and the Obama administration spent a year on health care reform from March 2009 to March 2010. The House and Senate came up with several competing bills, held dozens of hearings, accepted Republican amendments and spent countless hours soliciting feedback from public interests groups and the health care industry. The Congressional Budget Office produced several reports to analyze the various proposals and the legislation that ultimately became law.

By contrast, instead of public drafts and hearings, we now have to settle for a series of leaks from Capitol Hill about what is or isn’t in the bill. On one day, news
