Even Biden Admits Administration Won’t Meet Obamacare Enrollment goals

Well we could have told you that! Yesterday, Vice President Biden acknowledged that it was unlikely the Obama Administration would hit their 7 million person enrollment goal for Obamacare by their self-imposed March 31 deadline

“We may not get to seven million, we may get to five or six, but that’s a hell of a start,”

Let me remind you that back in 2013, NBC News asked HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, what a successful implementation would look like, to which she responded, “Well, I think success looks like at least 7 million people having signed up by the end of March 2014.”

Of course, after the botched rollout of the website and other problems, the Obama Administration was quick to call their own goal “meaningless.”


Even though the administration is saying that they only need two or three more million to sign up in order to meet their goal, the accuracy of the number being disclosed is shaky at best. According to the National Journal, 20 to 30 percent of the Obamacare enrollees so far have yet to make their first premium payment. That means that they are counting people who haven’t technically purchased insurance yet.

National Journal concludes:

“.. at some point, likely this spring, the administration will be forced to disclose how many people are actually paying their premiums—a more accurate, yet undoubtedly lower count of who actually got insured under the Affordable Care Act.” 

To summarize all of this, Obamacare is turning out to be a huge flop. And now they have to start admitting it. Don’t say we didn’t warn ya.
