More than two million enrolled in Obamacare

Washington (CNN) - More than two million people will have health insurance under Obamacare at the start of 2014, the Department of Health and Human Services said on Tuesday.

The figure made public in a department statement includes people who have signed up through federal and state marketplaces set up under the politically charged health care reforms championed by President Barack Obama.

    @donna–And you know this how? Just more Donna Creates Today's Facts.

    What are you asking about? I've posted so much information and you know so little because you do no research. Please be specific with your questions if you want people to educate you.

    Physicians should – and do lose their license when they commit medicare fraud. CEOs of healthcare corporations (our illustrious governor here in Florida for example) make out like bandits, then are "fined" pennies on the dollar for what they stole from taxpayers. Social Secrity fraud, like welfare fraud isn't as prevalent as some would like you to believe. We bail out private companies who engage in wholesale theft of taxpayer funds, yet not a single CEO or Wall Street executive has gone to prison for their criminal activities of the first decade of the new millenium.

    Blah, blah, blah.... The fact remains tens of BILLIONS of dollars in waste, fraud and abuse exists in these programs and the government refuses to go after it and stop it. Only if it reaches astronomical proportions do they go after them.

    And of course you totally ignored the other points which you have no counter to.


    I went back and re-read your post and, sure enough, I addressed every single "point" in it, althought I forgot to add concerning welfare/social security fraud: when people are caught committing welfare/ss fraud they are prosecuted and they can forget about ever qualifying for benefits for life, so most people aren't going to take that risk. That you don't like my fact-filled replies to your standard yet tired talking points is on you. Deal with it.

    Obamacare had been quite a conundrum for the young Indonesian actor, Barry Sotero, who plays the president of the US on tv.

    @donna–This was reference to your comments about how many people have or have not paid for their health ins. As for your flippant little paid for right wing answer-I seriously doubt you could educate any body or thing.

  6. GOP = Greed Over People

    Not quite sure what all the hubbub is about if you paid your premium.

    Humana sent me an invoice(via email, as all of us "libtards" are tree huggers) which I then set up in my bank's epay system to pay them electronically(treehugging again).

    Not much difference than paying my electric bill.

    Of course, if you rely on Fox Fables or drink Drudge sludge, you may believe the Pony Express is running late!

    This is what you get BCBS FOR GREED. GOP better shut up, follow the Law.
    How? Obama keeps changing it, which goes against everything the left keeps saying, i.e. "Its a LAW, nothing you can do about it."
