    Who counts as an Obamacare enrollee? The Obama administration settles on a definition

    The fight over how to define the new health law’s success is coming down to one question: Who counts as an Obamacare enrollee?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.

    Comrades! Good News! Many good people have signed up! ACA is a smashing success! The shopping cart? That is just a formality, it is Truth! Government says so. Are you disagreeing with the State comrades? That is unwise.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    This is a disgusting tactic. Obama, or whomever is managing this cluster****, absolutely should not be doing this. It's completely dishonest. Insurance doesn't count until someone pays. In some cases it doesn't count until someone pays and that payment is on the books for 30 days.

    I remember when this government redefinition project got off the ground with the infamous "The stimulus has created or saved XXX jobs" just like it was yesterday.

    The big question is whether or not they will be breaking out Medicare enrollees as those are totally non-contributing.

    When you have a failed policy you count the numbers anyway you can to improve your position. This is more of the same. If you like your insurance you can keep it. Period. Plus they will include the Medicare enrolls in their numbers to push up a false number to once again lie to the public. Pathetic!!!!!!!!!!

    I've seen pictures of shopping carts in Louisiana when the people found out they actually had to pay.... This is Shopping Carts Pt. 2.

    LMAO, this roll out of the Obamacare exchanges is so pathetic that they are going to count visitors to the web site as enrollees...

    Remember that when the Administration & the news tells you how great the enrollment is later this month.

    If you cant get the numbers you need, just lie about it and make them up. You Obama supporters should be so proud of your "Chosen One".
    Know the truth and the truth will make you mad, because the truth has no agenda.
