Obamacare’s 8 million lie

When the White House ballyhooed their big 8 MILLION number, they wanted us to assume this meant 8 Million previously uninsured people were now covered. But that is not at all what has happened.

They’re counting as “enrolled” anyone who put a policy into an on-line shopping cart, NOT people who finished all the paperwork, were approved or PAID for the product.

Even worse, a May 7, 2014 report to the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations says there are a lot of duplicate enrollees in the system:

“Because of the challenges that surfaced with the launch of the Exchanges in October 2013, some consumers were advised to create a new account and enroll again. As a result, insurers have many duplicate enrollments in their system for which they never received any payment. … that data is still reported.”

The White House ballyhooed “success” because they’d achieved “8 Million enrollees” while their goal had been 7 Million. The 67% who have paid one premium amount to only 5.36 Million … that’s a long way from 7 Million.

OBAMACARE Cancelled plan you liked

Even worse, only 25-33% of that 5.36 Million were uninsured prior to Obamacare.

  • IOW, between 1.4 and 1.8 Million were in the class of people Obamacare was supposedly going to save from dying on a lonely street corner.
  • Meanwhile, a WHOPPING 4 Million were in the class of people who lost plans Obama promised they could keep.

In addition, only 25% of actual enrollees are in the key “young invincibles” demographic, well short of Team Obama’s goal of 39%. These people are necessary for the whole thing to work, because they pay in, but generally do not take out. So even IF these people keep up their premiums, the whole program is doomed. (We can hope.)

And let’s not forget that health insurance is like the utility bill. It only stays “on” for as long as you keep up your payments. Just because 5.36 Million have paid ONE premium does not mean they will be willing or able to keep on paying. And just like your electric and your heat and your internet access … you miss a payment and you’re cancelled.

Utility bill

Coming up next in the Obamacare debacle … MORE cancellation notices and huge premium increases are expected soon, particularly for consumers in the small group market. Personally, I think driving small businesses out of business was planned from the start. Leftocrats can’t rule the world with a vibrant, mouthy, freedom-loving, Bible-thumping, gun-toting MIDDLE CLASS in their way.

This fall, I’m voting for anyone who PROMISES to kill Obamacare dead, Dead, DEAD.

A prophetic warning: The smile of heaven on America

Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, author of the best selling “The Harbinger” spoke at a one-of-a-kind prayer meeting called “Washington: A Man of Prayer, 2014.”

The event commemorated the events of April 30, 1789, when, after being sworn in at Federal Hall, Washington, accompanied by Congress, proceeded to St. Paul’s Chapel where, as one of his first official acts, he offered a prayer of dedication to God on America’s behalf.

Cahn quoted Washington’s address and his warning that the new nation could not expect to prosper if it forgot God:

“The propitious smile of heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which heaven itself hath ordained.”

Cahn continued: “We stand tonight on Capitol Hill, in the city named after the one who gave that prophetic warning, to ask, can a nation drive out the name of God from its public square, and the Word of God from its schools and the ways of God from its culture and still expect the smiles of God to shine upon it?

“Can the blood of 50 million unborn children cry out to heaven from this land and the smiles of heaven still remain?

“Members of Congress, can a government call evil good and good evil and forge laws that war against the laws of the Almighty and the smiles of heaven still remain?

“Supreme Court justices, can you strike down the statutes of the Almighty and overturn the judgments of the Most High and still expect the smiles of heaven to remain?

“Mr. President, can you place your left hand on the Word of God to assume your office and with your right hand sign laws which break the very Word upon which you swore and still expect the smiles of heaven to remain?

“The voice of our first president cries out to us tonight and answers, no you cannot do so and still expect the smiles of heaven to remain on this land.”

If you have not read/seen Cahn’s epic work, The Harbinger, I strongly recommend you do so and sooner rather than later.

The risen Christ is the reason for our witness

The Christian Gospel

I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. —1 Corinthians 2:2

Former major league baseball player Tony Graffanino tells of an ongoing ministry effort in a European country. Each year his organization holds a week-long baseball camp. During this week they also offer a daily Bible study. In past years, the leader tried to find reasoned ways to convince the campers that God exists so they would place their faith in Him. After about 13 years, they had seen only 3 people decide to follow Jesus.

Then they changed their approach, says Graffanino. Instead of “trying to present facts, or winning arguments for a debate,” they simply talked about “the amazing life and teachings of Jesus.” As a result, more campers came to listen, and more chose to follow Him.

The apostle Paul said that when we tell others about the gospel of Jesus Christ, we should set “forth the truth plainly. . . . We do not preach ourselves,” he said, “but Jesus Christ as Lord” (2 Cor. 4:2,5 niv). This was Paul’s standard for evangelism: “I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified” (1 Cor. 2:2).

We should be knowledgeable about the Bible and about the reasons for our belief, and sometimes we need to explain those reasons. But the most compelling and effective story we can tell puts Christ in the center.

Father God, please use me in the lives of others.
Remind me to talk about who Jesus is and His life
and teachings. And not to be dragged into debates,
but to share Jesus’ amazing life.
