    Controversy Swirling Around How Obama Plans to Calculate Obamacare Enrollees

    When the Obama administration releases its official health care enrollment figures later this week, the numbers will reportedly include those who have purchases a plan, but also people who have a plan sitting in their online shopping cart, the Washington Post reports.
    While health insurance companies only count subscribers as “enrolled” after they’ve provided payment, the Obama administration reportedly sought to generate its own definition of an enrollee.
    An unnamed administration official told the Post that “enrollment” will measure “people who have filled out an application and selected a qualified health plan in the marketplace.”
    “The administration plans to use this count of enrollees because that’s where their interaction with the healthcare.gov site ends, the administration official said,” the report adds.
    As a result, the numbers from the White House will likely be at least somewhat bigger than the roughly 50,000 private health plan enrollments through Healthcare.gov as reported by the Wall Street Journal on Monday. A Health and Human Services spokeswoman could not confirm the numbers in the report.
    Administration officials have been quick to admit that enrollment figures would be low for October due to the seriously botched rollout of Obamacare.

    The president and the administration are going to do any and everything to keep this albatross alive. The progressives have had a long term goal of providing universal, government provided health care and they are not about to give up being so close to the prize. Single-payer being the ultimate denoument, will force everyone reliant on fedgov healthcare to vote for the status quo health system as if their lives depended on it - which they do to a large degree.The gov't will most definitely have the power of life and death over the people.

    Obamacare will make private health insurance unprofitable by eliminating the restrictions on pre-existing conditions. People can wait until the day they get ill to buy insurance and there is no way that the insurance industry can survive this for long. Insurance is actuarial and by definition must transfer wealth from the healthy to the sick and the prospect of being locked out of the system due to prior illness was all that kept people in. Obamacare and then single-payer will trap us all in a nightmare of who lives and dies.
