Obama’s claim that 7 million
got ‘access to health care
for the first time’ because
of his Medicaid expansion

Washington Post, by Glenn Kessler

“We’ve got close to 7 million Americans who have access to health care for the first time because of Medicaid expansion.”President Obama, remarks during dinner with the Democratic Governors Association, Feb. 20, 2014 The Fact Checker has written several times about the fuzziness of the Medicaid numbers issued by the Obama administration. But it is like playing whack-a-mole. Every time we rap someone for getting it wrong, the same problem pops up someplace else. But here is the ultimate authority — the president of the United States — making the problematic claim that everyone counted under the administration’s

While Obama chooses his words carefully beforehand, clearly one basic reason he does that is to mislead as many people as possible.

The real number is people who need serious medical care and can´t get it for financial reasons. That number has been increasing for decades. It is less than the number of "uninsured". The ACA likely increases both numbers.

#5 You are correct. It seems that the 7 million that lost their insurance were middle class people with coverage that was right for their families. No one is talking about these people that can not afford the same coverage under Obamacare. What is really a kick, the middle class are now paying to cover the people that can´t afford it. No matter how you look at it, the middle class gets the short end of the stick.

I thought the whole reason for this was to prevent tax payers from picking up the cost of emergency rooms being used as health clinics. So now the tax payers are picking up the costs of Medicaid clinics. What´s the difference?

Just ask all those little Mexican pregnant women that would cross the border to have their baby...they were not turned away...are they now? Now only Americans with cancer are turned away.

When the government institutes a new social program it is always going to be the middle class who are going to pay for it as that is where the money really is that the government can get it´s hands on. In the case of Obamacare the Omaha crew just made it seem like the middle class what going to be helped by Obamacare, when in essence all the middle class was going to do is pay much higher premiums so that others could hop aboard either Obamacare or expanded Medicaid.

Obama and his propaganda regime do not care one whit about the veracity of their claims, nor do they care about the flak they get from news outlets that primarily us HiFo´s frequent. The regime and the rest of the Dems are in the business of penetrating The Culture with their big lies and misrepresentations. If they repeat the lies often enough they think the lies will have staying power with LoFo´s.
THEN, they will come back later in Nov 2014 and Nov 2016 and use their obamaphones and sophisticated data bases to harvest those LoFo´s TO VOTE.

LoFo´s do not read WaPo. They traditionally don´t vote, but the diabolic progressive Dems will get them to the polls.
The lies will continue, unabated, because they work.

Medicaid is another tool in the wealth redistributionist´s tool box. Big whoopie-do-dah-day. More socialism is here. 7 million American´s have just been enslaved to the government and more than double that number will be losing their coverage, and others paying more to make it happen. These 7M people need to read the fine print and understand that someday they may lose their homes, farms, cars and anything else of real value to pay back the government for this wonderfulness. It´s one thing to "get access", it is quite another actually "get treatment" for a medical problem. Sorry, that pace maker isn´t covered, here´s a 30 day Rx of bye bye pills for grandma, since she is too old, it´s too expensive and there is no real benefit to the common good by spending all of that money on her.

Edinburg, Texas There’s a small crowd munching on tacos and tortilla chips here at El Pato, a local chain restaurant in Texas’s Rio Grande Valley. We’re a short drive from the Mexican border, in a part of the state that’s nearly 90 percent Hispanic. The folks here are noticeably whiter (or more Anglo, as Texans would say) than that, but plenty of Hispanics have shown up, too. Fifty-six-year-old Greg Abbott, the powerful attorney general and Republican nominee for governor, is discussing how years of incredible economic growth are transforming Texas.

The radical faction of the LGBT community is now getting the same outrage it had directed toward former Mozilla chairman Brendan Eich earlier this week over a campaign contribution, which led to his departure. Now the company is getting flak over Eich’s forced resignation from a company he helped co-found. That decision angered many of Mozilla’s customers, and they didn’t hold back on their criticism, according to The Daily Caller, which reported: The decision to remove the man who invented the web scripting language JavaScipt did not sit well with many customers — many of them pelted Mozilla’s website with a surge

PHILADELPHIA— Sam Robinson said it´s been about 15 years since he last played the videogame Tetris on a Game Boy. On Saturday night, he played it on the side of a skyscraper. Robinson, 30, was among the hundreds of Tetris fans who had a little fun Saturday with a big version of the classic video game on the side of the 29-story Cira Centre in downtown Philadelphia.

In 2004, UPS announced a new policy for its drivers: the right way to get to any destination was to avoid left-hand turns. Even if that means following this route that a UPS driver described to an incredulous press member: "We´re gonna make a right turn onto 135th to Western. We´ll make another right on Western down to 139th. Righ turn on 139th and go down to the end of the block and we´ll make another right turn."

A half-dozen years ago, Brendan Eich donated $1,000 to the campaign for Proposition 8, the California ballot initiative that set out to ban same-sex marriage. It passed with 52 percent of the vote, but was later overturned by the courts. (Snip)Calls for his ouster were premised on the notion that all support for Proposition 8 was hateful, and that a CEO should be judged not just by his or her conduct in the professional realm, but also by political causes he or she supports as a private citizen.

Zaharie Ahmad Shah, with over 18,000 hours of flying time, commanded Flight 370 from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8 when it disappeared with 239 passengers and crew aboard. Fariq Abdul Hamid was the second officer. Investigators looking into the plane´s disappearance have focused on the pilot, co-pilot and crew members but haven´t ruled out the possibility that one or more passengers were involved, people familiar with the investigation said Friday.

“Truly, this man was the son of God.” Thus speaks a Roman centurion at the end of George Stevens’s inaptly named The Greatest Story Ever Told (1965). It’s a line that always gets a big laugh, partly because the idea of anything so irreligious as Hollywood hokum commenting on the provenance of Jesus Christ is axiomatically funny, but mostly because the centurion is played by John Wayne, a movie star who might have known a son of a gun when he saw one, but who patently knew precious little else. Except, one learns from Scott Eyman’s exhaustive new biography, John

When future generations come to look back on the alarm over global warming that seized the world towards the end of the 20th century, much will puzzle them as to how such a scare could have arisen. They will wonder why there was such a panic over a 0.4 per cent rise in global temperatures between 1975 and 1998, when similar rises between 1860 and 1880 and 1910 and 1940 had given no cause for concern. They will see these modest rises as just part of a general warming that began at the start of the 19th century, as the

With no evidence that Russia has any plans to withdraw its troops from the border of Ukraine, some former Soviet states are worried about their own regional security. Farther east, other countries, closely aligned with Moscow rather than the West, say they are trying to ease tensions. And several central Asian states have responded by simply staying silent. The United States and NATO announced this week that they are boosting military support in the Baltic region, which is on especially high alert. Moscow has long complained about Russians´ rights there, and its takeover of Crimea suggests it may be willing to

The president gave two speeches this week, one in the Rose Garden to talk about Obamacare and one in Ann Arbor, Mich., to push minimum wage increases. What did we learn? We learned that President Obama is most comfortable in campaign mode, and his campaigning has gotten downright ugly. His Rose Garden speech was a typical self-congratulatory moment for supposedly hitting 7.1 million Obamacare sign-ups — although we know that once again, the White House is ignoring some inconvenient truths. We also learned that the president was vain enough to asked the networks to cover his speech in prime time, but

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep.

WASHINGTON- Seven million people signed up, so there is an appetite for President Barack Obama´s health care law, but that doesn´t guarantee success for the country´s newest social program. Big challenges are lurking for the next enrollment season, which starts Nov. 15. Chief among them are keeping premiums and other consumer costs in check, and overhauling an enrollment process that was advertised as customer-friendly but turned out to be an ordeal. "They have demonstrated the law can work, but we are a ways off from being able to judge its success," said Larry Levitt, an expert on health insurance markets
