Under much duress, Kathleen Sebelius’ Health and Human Services (HHS) finally admitted that, as of November 2, 106K Americans had managed to enroll on the broken-down Obamacare exchange website.
Of the 106K who braved the healthcare.gov site, 27,000 enrolled through federal exchanges. That whopping 100K+ number proves that the 30 million “less fortunate” among us who Obama claims want and need coverage must have really been clamoring to sign up.
Aren’t these 30 million the very people for whom 270 million Americans had their perfectly acceptable healthcare system destroyed? Well, where are they? And don’t 106,185 people divided by 50 states over 30 days equal about 71 people signing up per day?
In response to the big reveal, Nancy ‘Check out My Big Gavel’ Pelosi, who has already proven to have a quite flair for the dramatic, felt it was incumbent upon her to publicly comment on what she views as impressive progress in the Obamacare exchange enrollment department. Exhibiting dumbfounding math skills, Mrs. Pelosi tweeted out her Common Core arithmetic reasoning when she interpreted for America what Ms. Sebelius said:
Wait! Does that tweet with Nancy Pelosi’s face up in the corner really say half a million? Was House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D- CA) interpreting 100K to be 500K, and isn’t 500K five times as many people as Secretary Sebelius claimed had actually enrolled? And does that mean that Mrs. Pelosi actually had five times the amount of skin snipped from her face than originally suspected?
To up the enrollment ante, Nancy didn’t stop at “already secured coverage.” Prior to that, she proudly opened her tweet with: “Despite website glitches 1m have applied.”
Now here’s a question for Nancy: Does that mean that every number liberals cite is actually five times higher than what they say? For instance, in the Affordable healthcare arena, the left keeps alluding to only 5% of Americans with coverage potentially being canceled. If we apply the ‘Nancy five times more’ standard to that number, is the San Francisco liberal suggesting that 25% of those currently covered may soon find themselves without health insurance?
Even though Nancy, while shilling for amnesty, loves to chant ‘Sí se puede!’ usually liberals like her downplay the real number of illegal immigrants by quoting 11 million. So maybe Nancy would like to correct that figure and take credit for the liberal policy of open, unsecured borders causing the nation to actually be flooded with 55 million illegal immigrants.
According to USDA.gov, as of November 8, 2013, 47,666,124 Americans, thanks to Obama’s economic policies, were forced onto food stamps. Would Nancy like to impress the nation by clarifying that the liberal entitlement mentality is hoping to grow that figure five times higher, to a whopping 238 million?
How about abortion, a subject that is near and dear to Nancy’s heart? Currently, 3,000 unborn babies are aborted a day. Maybe Ms. Pelosi can prove that liberals are winning the war on women by doing everything possible to raise that figure to a more impressive 15,000 per day.
And speaking of Obamacare, based on a study by the Lozier Institute, President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul stands to bankroll between “71,000 and 111,500 abortions per year.” Maybe Nancy can stress the left’s love and concern for women’s issues by pushing to get that number up to a half million too.
As of October 2013, the unemployment rate was stagnated at around a mere 7 percent. Seeing as how Ms. Nancy is in the habit of inflating the numbers for the benefit of impressing the American public, maybe she should announce that hopefully the unemployment number will grow so that 35% of the US workforce will be unemployed. That way even more jobless people will be able to “pursue …happiness [and] follow …passion,” while collecting unemployment insurance.
Unfortunately, laughingstock Nancy Pelosi can’t prove that the Obamacare exchange enrollment is five times higher than Kathleen Sebelius originally claimed. But what Pelosi did confirm, once again, is that liberals like her are 100% more ignorant and misleading than ever.
