October Obamacare Enrollment Numbers Released

Kathleen Sebelius has admitted that the Healthcare.gov website did not meet expectations and that personal information could fall into the hands of felons hired to be “navigators” for the program

(Nov. 13, 2013) — The number of people allegedly enrolled in an Obamacare plan has been reported by the AP to be “fewer than 27,000 people.”

The goal, between state insurance exchanges and the federal website, Healthcare.gov, was close to 500,000 enrollments.

At approximately 3:16 p.m. EST, Rep. Steve Stockman tweeted that the numbers would include those who enrolled in Medicaid in the states which chose to expand it under the “law.”

Also on Wednesday, PJ Media reported that the Medicaid enrollment process is fraught with the potential for fraud and abuse.

On September 20, House Republicans passed an appropriations bill which funded all government departments except Obamacare, but Senate Democrats and Obama refused to negotiate.  A partial government shutdown then ensued for 16 days which Obama and the Democrats blamed on Republicans.

The Healthcare.gov website was officially open for enrollment on October 1 but has been plagued with technical problems.  The contractors the regime hired to create the website say that the troubles are “not their fault.”  Personal information is not secure, and enrollments in paid health plans are at an as-yet-undisclosed low number.  An estimated $1 billion has been spent to launch the website among several contractors, one of which, SERCO, has been under investigation in the UK.

After several weeks of problems with the website, the Obama regime promised that it would be repaired by the end of November, but NPR reported that that might be too late to provide the number of enrollments needed to make the program work.

Now the regime is admitting that the website “may not be fixed by Nov. 30.”

Obama had promised that people could retain health care plans that they bought through the individual market, but an avalanche of cancellations has proved that he lied when he said, “If you like your plan, you will keep it.  No one is going to be able to take that away from you.”

Obama also says he was born in Hawaii, but a criminal investigation shows that that is most likely not the case, either.  The mainstream media has refused to report on the forgeries of Obama’s long-form birth certificate and Selective Service registration card as determined by the Maricopa County, AZ Cold Case Posse.

On Friday, the House of Representatives will vote on a proposed bill to allow people who have lost their health care plans as a result of Obamacare to revert which some Democrats say they will support.

The AP also quoted Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius as saying that she “expects things to improve.”  Last Wednesday, while testifying to the Senate Finance Committee, Sebelius admitted that personal information entered over the website could potentially fall into the hands of convicted felons, as criminal background checks on “navigators,” paid out of a $54,000,000 grant to assist people to enroll in a health care plan, are not done.

Sebelius also took responsibility for the website’s failures but has faced no consequences to date.  Some have called on her to resign.

The young woman whose face originally appeared on the Healthcare.gov website has not enrolled in Obamacare, and her photo was removed several weeks ago because of alleged “cyberbullying.”  She is from Colombia and is reportedly a legal immigrant.
