Dental Plans Were Included in Obamacare Totals to Hit Target Goals

What? They deliberately inflated numbers and were less than transparent? Why, this has never happened before regarding Obamacare!

Yes, my sarcasm meter is broken again.

The Obama administration included as many as 400,000 dental plans in a number it reported for enrollments under the Affordable Care Act, an unpublicized detail that helped surpass a goal for 7 million sign-ups.

Without the dental plans, the federal government would have had 6.97 million people with medical insurance under the law known as Obamacare, investigators for the House Oversight and Government Reform committee calculated, using data they obtained from the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Federal officials said in September they had 7.3 million people enrolled in coverage through new government-run insurance exchanges. They didn’t distinguish between medical and dental plans, breaking from previous practice without notice.

Oh, and now that they’ve been caught inflating the numbers? No comment.

Kevin Griffis, a spokesman for the U.S. Health and Human Services Department, said he didn’t have a comment yet, hours after being asked for one.

Why, it’s almost as if they don’t say anything, no one will notice!

Congressman Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, has taken to Twitter.

Reliably, the lapdogs are attempting to make excuses for outright obfuscation.

“Unforced error?” Yeah, right.


And a final note of truth:


They really do think the American public is stupid. In fact, they are counting on it.

    How incisive! We’re left hanging on the cusp(id).

    After all, Ozymandias-on-the-Potomac and his coterie view the rest of us as just indentured servants of Emperor for Life Obama the First.
