7 million, but, who's counting? Seriously, who's doing the counting?

Well, the touting has started. The Obama Administration is stating they signed up 7-million right on the last day of the program.

Of course, they don't say many who signed up actually had insurance, or told us how many were the targeted youth.

How many were the unwanted older folks? They just say 7 million and we are to believe them. Other reports say 7 million may have logged on, but who has paid?

There is no mandate for this. It's all been pushed back.

How many have lost their jobs because of Obamacare? How many folks who signed up have had their rates go up and what is there new deductible?

One TV station in California spoke to one young man. Despite an extended deadline to sign up for health care under Covered California, some in the Bay Area are choosing to pay a penalty instead of insurance because of the cost.

Brian Roi has worked as a bartender without insurance for the last two years. He chose not to sign up for health coverage because at the end of the night, he said the math does not add up.

"It doesn't work for me. I went to college. I have to pay all these student loans still I'm paying those. I'm paying credit card bills that incurred when I went to college."

It's just a mess. It will always be a mess.

That's my point of view, what's yours?

ANOTHER NEWS FLASH...

Latest ObamaCare surprise: Most won't be able to buy health insurance until end of year!!

VOTE THE STINKING DEMOCRATS OUT IN NOVEMBER! Tell them we have to vote them out to see what is in it.

News flash...

Gallup: Uninsured Rate Up Since Obama Elected
Roughly 3.6 million more uninsured since Bush administration.

Yea, Obamacare is the pits.

Hope for change in 2014. Show the Democrats the door. Let them sit at the back of the bus for a while and slup on their sluppies.

4/8/2014...4:27 p.m...hate to tell all you clowns who HATE President Obama, the Affordable Healthcare Act, help for those who didn't have any coverage for healthcare except desperate visits to ERs (that taxpayers picked up the tab for)...9 MILLION Americans now have insurance because of the ACA...bash it all you want, but with that number paying into the program, even with government assistance, the ACA will, indeed, pay for itself. Don't bother trashing me...facts speak!! (Shut up, deaf!)

7 million 'maybe' singed up. 5 million DID lose their health insurance. So what... 2 million really signed up who were new?

I thought there were 30 million people without health insurance? Why didn't they sign up?

Oh yea, Reid says they are ignorant of the Internet! Yea.. that's the answer!

So how are they gonna get them singed up.. and WHO WILL PAY?

Hope for change in 2014. Say 'no' to dems'.

Say Never, No, Not in this lifetime, No way, Not today...say absolutely NO to a gop/t-swilling party that wants to make the poor even more so and more middle class folks to fall even farther behind...that caters to elitist richies, that makes meanness/racism/elitism the norm and creates a society of privileged landlords and indentured underpaid and overworked servants...such a great world deaf wants for the rest of us...join the crowd, deaf, and get your peasant clothes on...you're next.

Don't we all love snyderpal's first post at the bottom where he says "doesn't take an Einstein to see why nobody is signing up for that (ACA)". Remind me to never ask this prognosticator for his opinion on anything...7.1 million DID sign up, and the administrators of the program are to give an even higher number within 2 weeks when all applications have been processed. Snyderpal, the info you're getting from faux noise/beck/Hannity/rushbo is nothing short of lies and bloviated blather.

snyderpal, one suspects you are an employee of ketk...so, if true, BUSTED!! As for being a "leech", I could buy and sell you if I wanted to...my resources afford my family the ability to do anything and go anywhere we want and to live an extremely comfortable lifestyle...yep, you could conceivably call us part of at least the top 25% in this country...so I suggest you, and anyone else who think you can hurt or silence me, to zip it up...love ketk...provides my daily chuckles...keep it up, guys!

And the young, idiot, WILL NOT PAY.

They will pay the fine and get on with their lives.

And that will be the end of Obamacare.

Yup They are GOING TO PAY one way or another and the fine will increase next year. They are the leeches like you daffy

For all of you rich, insured, I/me/mine, get rid of government/don't do anything whatsoever for the poor folks below, read and re-read Sugarbaby's account of the success of the Affordable Healthcare Act, one of many. A BIG congratulation for accessing great coverage...what a wonderful blessing for you and your family to not have to worry about medical care at a reasonable cost as you go forward. As for any and all of you who play the "bash Pete" game, people like you can't possibly hurt me.

Pete = Loser. A societal leech. A person pleased with a government that extorts money from it's citizens. An individual who lacks drive and self esteem. Of the school; misery loves company. A forever benefactor of government. A socialist. A person low enough to crawl under a snakes belly. Moocher. Spoiler. Dirtbag

You must have been looking in the mirror while posting

Facts are in. Only 858,000 newly insured Americans have paid up and that is IF Obama isn't lying bout his 7.1 milling signup. But we know Obama won't lie, especially about Obamacare, right?.

What is bankrupting, and will KEEP bankrupting Obamacare, is the failure to get enough people to pay the full price. The young will opt out and pay a fine. That leaves people who have to have 'subsides'. And who pays? Under Obamacare nobody! Money just pops out of thin air!

Hope for change in 2014!

The ACA Ponzi does not work for young and healthy Americans, it is a redistribution of wealth from those least likely to have wealth. A friend in my office said he wasn't going to sign; " .. not fair that he should have to pay for old people". I reminded him that it was old people who went to Townhalls all across America in opposition to the law. It's wrong and divisive to force some to pay for the healthcare of others and a republic wouldn't ask that of it's citizens, only a dictatorship would.

I am a business owner in Tyler, I have not had insurance since I started my business 5 years ago because of preexisting conditions our insurance was going to be $1100 a month. I just signed up for healthcare (BCBS) its $265 a month for the 2 of us. If we need to see a Dr. the copay is $35, preferred generic drugs $0 copay, non preferred $10. And yes, if I had to go to the hospital I have a $2500 deductible, however, that beats having to pay the whole bill.

If insurance by way of actuary could not insure you for under $1100./mo. and now two are insured for $845. less by way of government then, you haven't got a better deal, you're riding the backs of other Americans. I've watched this country fill-up with Sugarbaby's all looking to have Uncle Sam as a Sugardaddy.

You must have me confused with someone else, to say you have "watched this country fill-up..." you suggest that I am new here, sorry to disappoint you but I am DAR. Getting sick or injured and going to the hospital without insurance is "riding the backs of other Americans". Buying insurance in an open market is not. The math works that is why you had to respond to my post by name calling and insinuating that I am an immigrant, a "other". Try using facts instead.

Absolutely nothing makes the likes of neal, gomer and tea-swilling clowns shrivel more than anything successful attributable to the current administration and, more to the point, to President Obama...but you know what? STUFF IT, suck it up, live with it, and shut up!! After dozens of attempts to kill the ACA, your imbecilic House un-American stiffs have wasted valuable time that could have been used to positively moved this country forward. A perfect world? One without gop/t-bag dopes!

Pete, I'm tired of your usual hate speech aimed at anyone who disagrees with your ideology of a socialist America. Can't you just come to grips that not everyone believes government is the answer to a better life?

Social Security and Medicaid were both raided during the Reagan administration. The surplus was added to the General Fund, a one time gimmic. What Bush senior called Voodoo Economics. I suggest we raid the congressional pension and health plan, roll the surplus into the General Fund. And give congress the same Social Security and Medicaid they give us. Let them wait in the same line, like the little people. Time to pop their bubble!

That's right Dave. It was pathetic to see the crooked scumbag Newt Gingrich proclaim in the Republican debates last primary that they had balanced the budget when in fact they looted the citizens healthcare savings account, their protected by law Social Security. The problem; America began to wake-up to the fact that inflation (caused by the fiscal policies of the Fed. Res.) had diminished the value of the SSI accounts, rendering the program worthless. Total SSI income today = 10 mo. of QE3.

And the lies and stonewalling just keeps going and going.

Benghazi, Fast&Furious, IRS scandal, NSA scandal, DOJ voter intimidation, etc..

And never do they give a strait answer. Just delay, delay, delay.

Hope for change in 2014. Let's find answers by voting out Democrats. Send them a real message.

How can you believe them when they lie so much:

“If you like your health insurance plan, you can keep it”
"if you like your DOCTOR you can keep your doctor"
"The health care bill will not increase the deficit by one dime."
“the foreign intelligence Surveillance court is transparent.”
“First of all, I didn’t set a red line,” said Obama. “The world set a red line.”
"Benghazi violence was caused by an internet video & demonstrations"
"I won’t Raise taxes on those making less than 250,000 per year"

Lies? You mean like.

Enron's the kind of corporate neighbor we need in Texas (Bush on Enron ). Iraq has yellow cake uranium. The war is over, from the flight deck of a carrier. Flight 93 was brought down by the passengers. Waterboarding isn't torture.

I notice that Bush is the 1st president to be convicted of war crimes (in absentia). He was found guilty in a Malaysian court. You have heard of Malaysia right? Our anti terrorism treaty with them obliges us to recognize the conviction

His penalty is 1% of income over $95.00, that is smart. Do the math. Say he brings down 80K as bartender. His tax bill will be the minimum $95.00. If he gets sick then his account goes into collections with the hospital. If on govt. plan, medicaid steps in and estate is on the hook to the IRS. Doesn't take an Einstein to see why nobody is signing up for that.

There is nothing in this entire administration that has ever been the truth. A liar is a liar.

Like George WMD LIAR Bush
