What a surprise! More Obama lies: bogus Medicaid signups

Some people have attacked me because I did not, have not, and will not take up a Don Quixote-like crusade over the birth certificate of President Obama. Instead, I choose to focus my energies on highlighting the faults, failures and shortcomings of this president (so many from which to choose), as well as presenting viable solutions for the future of our Republic.

Today I share with you reports from Fox News, Real Clear Politics, and the Washington Post about more massively egregious lies emanating from the Obama administration regarding Obamacare enrollments.

The administration is touting that millions of Americans have signed up through Obamacare for Medicaid coverage. However, a closer analysis seems to show that instead of some 4 million who have gained Medicaid coverage, the real number is lower than 400,000. How can that be? The Obama administration has been counting individuals re-enrolling in Medicaid.

According to Sean Trende writing for Real Clear Politics,

“This is odd, because after looking carefully at the numbers cited, the Medicaid figures are the weakest of the bunch. It’s a virtual certainty that the number of enrollments attributable to Obamacare is an order of magnitude less than the 4 million sign-ups implied, and the number of people [on Medicaid] who would actually lose their insurance if Obamacare were repealed is probably around 200,000 to 300,000.”

Even Glenn Kessler at the Washington Post Fact Checker, who awarded President Obama three of the top six Pinocchios for 2013, says,

“There is much less to the Medicaid figure than meets the eye. (The exchange figure has been updated recently, to 2.2 million, but not the Medicaid figure.) Indeed, there has been vast confusion about what this figure means, especially in the news media.”

Just yesterday during a House of Representatives hearing, the Obama administration admitted it has no idea how many people have paid for their Obamacare premiums. As reported by The Blaze:

“We don’t know at this point how many people have actually paid for coverage?” a slightly astonished Congressman Greg Harper (R-Miss.) asked during the hearing. “That’s right,” replied Gary Cohen, the director of Medicare’s Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight. Cohen admitted the Obama administration is still working on building the payment portion of the healthcare.gov website. The automated process for payments is still being built, but we have a process in place that is working and payments will be going out next week,” Cohen said, adding that he couldn’t say exactly when the payment portion of the site would be ready to launch.

Which leads me to ask you, my friends, along with the liberal progressive trolls who join us on these pages, is this a presidency predicated upon lies? Is the answer not blindingly obvious?

If President Obama had told the American people the truth, and if the liberal progressive media had not hidden the truth, would he have been elected President in 2012? When you consider the monumental lies surrounding Obamacare, Benghazi, and the fact that al Qaida is not decimated or on the run, if the truth had been told, the election results could not have been the same. (Assuming of course we have integrity in the election process, but that’s a different story…)

I continue to maintain that the jobs numbers were manipulated right before the 2012 election as well — and are still today. There is no way liberal progressives would accept these lies and this behavior if it were coming from a Republican president.

What we are witnessing makes Orwell’s 1984 look like child’s play. And a message to progressive socialists: don’t act with this sense of impunity believing there will never be another Republican president.

You and your media accomplices are losing all credibility as you not only accept these lies, but willfully enable and promulgate them. The liberal left hypocrisy is so blatant with the grasping “witch hunt” of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.

The Bible has a very poignant verse relating to this issue, in Matthew 7:3-5: “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.”

And that’s why progressives embrace secular humanism. The Bible convicts them and calls out their actions — and their lies.

Like she said, we need to pass this law to find out what’s in it and so far we ain’t finding a whole lot gems. A smart man would have looked at this program and said it isn’t ready so lets hold off until it is, but the POTUS and his party pushed it through as is.

You hear that? Me neither! That is the silence form the MSM who will not be reporting this story. I cannot wait to see the Democrats get crushed on election day in 2014 and 2016. The beauty of the epic fail Obamacare has been is the Democrats and the media cannot lie their way out of this one. Millions of Americans have lost their plan they were promised they could keep and tens of millions more will soon. If they webpage is working and they can sign up for another plan it is much worse and has a super high… Read more »

Well, I tried to sign up, against my will. For me, the cost would be $400.00 per month, which seems like it’s not much, but I don’t make enough to cover that and take care of my bills. And the deductible…OMG! I don’t even want to put my info in that stupid website. I did once and I have at least 10 – 15 Insurance Reps calling me everyday. I’m taking the fine. It’s cheaper. I’m so discouraged about this Administration. All lies, no truth!

It’s not only a matter of blatant lies but the abuse of power. A WSJ article mentions that the IRS will be doing it’s best to derail and delay applications by conservative organizations in order to try to prevent conservative victories in 2014.

Given that the American People are catching on to the lies and the scandals in growing numbers, 2014 should be a win for conservatives. Democrats up for reelection will be defeated.

Don’t count on it . You are right that it SHOULD be ,but with this corrupt administration I do not count on it as we see the results it will become very clear it will be stolen by corruption and the media will do its cover up as usual. What bothers me most anymore isn’t the corruption but the disgusting media.

Not only are the premiums higher, but no one except the seriously chronically ill, will meet the deductibles. Obama has ruined health care in this country for EVERYONE. What a disaster. There are lists all over the web for reps that supported this debacle, remember that in 2014 and 2016. We need a government reboot.

Col. West, thank you for your unwavering and untiring commitment to keeping American citizens up-to-date on this very crooked, progressive Administration. My prayer is that some of the liberal (so-far-left-leaning-until-you-fall-down) voters will get the message soon that this president and all the controversies surrounding him and his cronies, including some Republicans now in office, care nothing for them personally, let alone for America and our Constitution. We conservatives have sat back and let our country fall to her knees. It’s time to bring God fully back into public view.

The only thing transparent about this administration is the lies.

A bigger question is why are we even discussing Medicaid numbers associated with the ACA? Medicaid existed before and provided coverage, compensation, benefit, or whatever you want to call it before this seven headed hydra called Obamacare. I thought the ACA was to get the uninsured coverage, not rename the benefit afforded those on Medicaid … a rose by any other name …

Chris F.
Guest

Like the seven-headed hydra analogy (no doubt lost, unfortunately, on this generation, regardless of their political leanings, or lack thereof) I want to respect my own privacy and that of my family’s but I certainly have and will experience the devastating effects of the UCA (Unaffordable Careless Act)

Glad you liked the reference, but sorry to hear about the predicament the ACA has placed you in. I am just waiting for the other shoe to drop when the employer mandate takes effect and nothing has changed with respect to this law.

I have been hearing over and over again about why government can’t make these things work, but never one based on the LAW… ie the 10th amendment to the Constituion. “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

Why is nothing challenged based on this law? I think it is because that would force Republicans to give up their own favorite programs too.

HA
Guest

I whole-heartily agree! This law alone challenges ALL the programs that the government has implemented in the past 250 years that are not specifically deemed to be under federal jurisdiction by the Constitution. Therefore, are we legally obligated to follow any federal laws that the states have not ratified and are not stated in the Constitution?

But what can we do about this? I say contact your state legislators and tell them to nullify Obamacare for your state. Every time the Feds do something like this ever again state legislatures should nullify what they don’t want. Clearly the national government has lost touch with reality and their constituents.

I say we just dont pay taxes till they dismantle this law….don’t file and the government will go broke then we elect all new congressmen to the house,senate and presidency and put a limit on all terms.We the people. and put those responsible for our country’s problems on trial and prosecute them.

David Jueneman
Guest

Don’t file? If you are self-employed. I would say yes. But most people are not self-employed and payroll taxes are taken out by the employer. So not filing, means that the government gets to keep all the money, even what they normally would have refunded. Makes wonderful sense to me!

My niece was automatically enrolled in Obamacare because she receives food stamps and WIC after she left her drug addicted soon to be ex- husband, she never applied for it as she is about to rejoin the working. The only reason she was on assistance was because she was pregnant with their 2nd child when she discovered he had started using illegal drugs. When the letter arrived in the mail it surprised us all, and it also had another name on it, we have no idea who this other young lady is, but her information is on the same page… Read more »

ObamaCare is NOT about insurance or medical care.
Like food stamps and unemployment, it is simply about creating more DEPENDENCY on government by more voters for their basic needs, which results only in more CONTROL by that government and the politicians and bureaucrats that run it. :-<

Well Allen, if more credible people like yourself would have the courage to call out Obama’s fake birth certificate, then there would be no reason to have to worry about all this other BS he is doing and saying. The questions you should be asking is: Why is the birth certificate that is posted on whitehouse.gov a forgery?

David Jueneman
Guest

Do you actually think that Congress would take action even if Obama came out himself and said that it was fake? Why waste time on something even though it might be legit, nothing will happen. Do you think that if we did remove him from office through impeachment or nullify his presidency then that will automatically make Obamacare go away or get reversed? Nope!

nwyfzguy
Guest

I don’t know, but I think with all the other things this president has been responsible for i.e., Fast and Furious, Benghazi, IRS scandals etc. etc. even the brain-dead citizens of this country are going to start waking up and start demanding accountability. At a minimum it a weaken in this President and slow down his hell-bent drive of destroying this country.

Dear Officer and Gentleman Mr. West; it is not about a Don Quixote-like crusade over the birth certificate of President Obama. It is very hard for me to understand why persons of your high character haven’t realized that it is about that B. H. Obama’s father was not a citizen of the U.S. According to the 5 or 6 Supreme Court Cases filed beginning shortly after the Constitution was fined, a natural born citizen is born of U.S. citizens and yes, on US soil. Neither of which has been proven. The Democrat’s are much better versed than the GOP on… Read more »

COL. West, you point out all of the other blatant lies, and you are willing to ignore the one that allows him to be there in the first place? Especially when Sheriff Joe has done all the heavy lifting? Just asking sir.

David Jueneman
Guest

I agree with Allen West on this. The issues and arguments need to be focused and direct to how what he is doing affects the country. The liberal media will pick and choose what issues conservatives are talking about. If they decided to focus on the one you want to focus on, they will promote all of us as being ridiculous.

OffensiveAndPeculiar
Guest

To me David truth is truth. I am not suggesting that we need to hammer away at BHO’s lack of documentation. I am simply stating that to ignore the preponderance of evidence because we find the MSM’s assaults distasteful or uncomfortable is not a valid reason. Especially when you have a mind as sharp as Lord Monkton affirming the obvious, that the latest B.C. is a computer forgery. The Col. has his reasons for making his choice, but I am quite sure it is not because he fears being made to look ridiculous.

Don Falloon

The issue of the birth certificate is rather a moot point. Even if the issue were pushed further with any additional validity it would likely be tied to the courts until well after the close of the administration. Better to focus energies on the here-and-now. Just sayin’…

Please let us remember that his supporters outvoted us and that is why he is POTUS. Do you think we could carry off driving one person to multiple precincts? No. Some Acorn community action poll watcher would make sure we landed in jail. Let’s get a little more realistic. I don’t know an answer but I think we are headed for 8 years of Hilary and then 8 years of Michele. They manipulate the system and it works for them. Oh, well. We are toast anyway.

Keep in mind tho, that most of his “supporters” are uneducated and the type who never really take the time to stop and think things through for themselves. Some have been paid. And some of those “votes” were also probably fraudulent. Nonetheless, if people do not want to see another Communist in power and occupying our White House, they had better get out and vote.

The history of George Soros is interesting. Have read, important, that he was a guard in a WWII concentration camp. One of his tricks was to promise to get folks out of the camp alive if they would give him their account info in Swiss banks, which he then stole. If true his path is not unlike his protégée Obama. If a war criminal who did he emigrate to the US, why wasn’t he prosecuted? How does a man go from a death camp to a multi billion $$ manipulator?

I prefer to think that they don’t impeach because, as long as Democrats control the Senate, there will be no conviction and thus, it would be a massive waste of time and effort and would likely cost Republicans at the polls for years to come. Remember, the Democrats have the vast majority of U.S. media to air their message.

I can tell you. The flaming dogdoo bag on the doorstep is for John Boehner the Speaker of the House. He’s O’s golfing buddy and obviously made a deal long ago to obstruct for O for undisclosed kickbacks. He’s the gatekeeper of impeachment and will not go there and neither will Mitch McConnell in the Senate.

Wayne Wilhelm

When a person leads his daily life via dishonesty, that person loses the ability to differentiate between truth and fiction. That defines President Obama. No one should be pursuing Obama’s birth certificate issues, even though the certificate he’s repeatedly published is clearly a fake. I’m an expert in computer graphics digital editing; however, that’s irrelevant. Any amateur can tell what Obama posted as his birth certificate is a fake. It’s not the information in the published certificate that is contested though; it’s the truncated information that has been removed from the certificate. Any real question of Obama’s citizenship should be… Read more »
