    I'm curious - since there were reportedly about 40 million Americans without any kind of health insurance coverage when Obamacare was proposed adopted and the intent was to allow more people to qualify under Medicaid guidelines and to qualify under highly government subsidized plans, where does the 7.5 million paying customers figure come from? I'm assuming, perhaps wrongly, that a large number of the new signups would be those who can now "afford" insurance because it is either completely or partially subsidized by taxpayers. If so, seems to me that others signing up and paying must be paying a good amount in order to offset the costs of the others.

    You know this is Bull S***.

    First off, they know exactly whos paid and second if they had a substantial number of paid sign ups, they would be reporting it, around the clock.

    They would be telling Democrats to move back in, and run on this great "accomplishment".

    They're so full of s***.

    No just pointing out there is a difference between information and propaganda. Like to name call do we? This is not the 3rd grade you can do better than that.

    There is no way to know that right away. Under ACA, once you sign up, you then have 2 months to pay your first premium to the insurance company you choose, since this is pretty much a "marketplace exchange" in which insurance companies compete for your business. You pay your premium to the particular insurance company you are going with, not the government. And it could take months before the insurance companies report each of their own batch of statistics back to the government, which then must compile it all to come up with the final figures.

    Of course they know who paid and who didn't. They are being intentionally obtuse, but luckily for them, they have a large number of sheeple who will bleat their message repeatedly and unquestioningly.

    Oooh Nice one !!

    Ill have to remember that one.

    As bad as Obama needs a victory of any sort dont you think they would report how many people paid if it was a Substantial number ?

    Instead of perpetuating this nonsense that they have no idea how many people paid.

    They would be running it on MSNBC and CNN on a continuos loop as a " Success " !!

    And they DO know.

    Its why they're running Obama adds reminding people that in order to be covered they HAVE TO MAKE A PAYMENT.

    Propaganda. Thats exactly what it is.

    Funny, no mention of this on Fox? Shocking I tell you. Shocking.
    How many paid? They don't know because they are incompetent. There are 350,000,000 people in the country. Under 2% signed up if they paid and you think this news is a win? You are a funny guy.

    Yea but those numbers are waning.

    Democrats know their in trouble.

    So Obama's startegy is to treat the rest of us like his followers.

    To assume we're stupid enough to take these numbers at face value. Because he's such a inherently honest guy.

    It's not GOP. They running around scared someone might call them racist.

    Sounds like they've narrowed it down to 7 million. [or as many as they can get]

    WH: Yeah, about those 7 million people we needed to register for Obamacare… « Hot Air
