While Republicans continue to waste taxpayers money with yet another futile repeal effort, the health care reform known as Obamacare has topped 11.3 million national sign ups this enrollment season.
About 8.6 million people signed up for plans on HealthCare.gov since Nov. 1, and another 2.7 million signed up on the state-based exchanges, officials said.
Nearly 4 million people under age 35 nationally signed up for Obamacare plans. That number is important: The 18-to-34-year-old demographic is closely watched, because younger customers tend to spend more into the health plans than they cost in benefits. Almost 3 million of the sign-ups came from those young adults.
“We’re encouraged that marketplace consumers are increasingly young, engaged and shopping for the best plan,” said Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell. “We have more work to do before the next deadlines, and our focus continues to be the consumer experience and educating consumers about available financial assistance and their choices.”
So, Megyn Kelly of the Fox Information Network invited a member of the Obama administration on her Fox Information Show. Her guest, Ezekiel Emanuel knows firsthand all there is to know about the Affordable Care Act also called Obamacare, because he was an intricate part of the whole process in getting the healthcare to the American people. He went to the Fox Information Network to share some information with their viewers, but the Fox host wasn’t interested in informing anyone in their audience. She couldn’t get past the fact that enrollees in the new healthcare law is short of the initial figures the administration quoted.
Apparently, this information is more important to the Fox than real information about the law.
I mean, come on. You invite the man with the information and all you’re interested in is trying to figure out if the law is falling short of its initial figures? This is the exact informative news Fox News viewers crave… apparently.
