Obama is going to count people who HAVENT bought plans in his numbers

quote:

Health insurance plans only count subscribers as enrolled in a health plan once they’ve submited a payment. That is when the carrier sends out a member card and begins paying doctor bills.

When the Obama administration releases health law enrollment figures later this week, though, it will use a more expansive definition. It will count people who have purchased a plan as well as those who have a plan sitting in their online shopping cart but have not yet paid.

Makes sense. Many people haven't paid yet, right? The numbers will be way off.

Well since the law requires health insurance, shouldn't that be the case...

oh snap, and wonkblog is who calls him on it?

there may actually be something to the emerging theory of the left starting to turn on him.

i saw that thing with carville saying something like the ACA rollout being a joke or whatever and sort of just thought it was (still) sour grapes, but this is probably more meaningful. carville+klein right now as obama critics is not a good thing for the administration

There it is! I read that article or one very similar a few days ago and was looking for it earlier in a different thread. Thanks for the post.

Obama is not deceptive ever you apparently watch too much Faux News.

A glimpse into Obama's thoughts...

Obama Warns GOP: “A Price to Pay” for Defying “the American People”

Does he think his tanking poll numbers are not real?

The disparity in the numbers is likely to further inflame the political fight over the Affordable Care Act. Each side could choose a number to make the case that the health law is making progress or failing miserably.


If it's possible to make it look like a miserable failure by excluding the number of people who aren't actually buying it, it's not the numbers. It's the POS product.

"Created or saved"

Shit, using this criteria, considering it is now the law to have it, they may as well claim 100% participation!
