Most likely they inflated it more than that, as we know this Administration lies to the people. Obama’s much-touted 8 million Obamacare enrollment number was inflated by 1.3 million, the Obama administration now admits.
“The mistake we made is unacceptable,” tweeted Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Sylvia Burwell. “I will be communicating that clearly throughout the department.”
How gullible do they think we are? It was intentional.
Burwell says the Obama administration counted nearly 400,000 dental plan subscribers as health insurance customers to boost the figures. In September, HHS admitted Obama’s oft-cited eight million enrollment figure was inflated by 700,000 and was really 7.3 million.
There’s no way to make that kind of mistake, the applications are there in black and white.
Burwell conceded Americans may remain “skeptical” about the Obama administration’s numbers but said she hopes “our clarity that this is a mistake and the fact that we have quickly corrected the numbers should give people confidence.”
Admission of the 1.3 million Obamacare “mistake” comes on the heels of newly uncovered videos of Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber admitting the Obama administration actively misled voters about the president’s healthcare overhaul.
“Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage,” said Gruber. “Call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really critical to getting the thing to pass.”
Only 37% approve of the law.
