A Closer Look at Obamacare Enrollment Numbers

Jason Millman explains the federal-state difference in bronze enrollment: “Federal subsidies appear to have driven Americans to more expensive silver plans. HHS reported that 86 percent of people selecting plans in the federal exchanges qualified for federal assistance, compared to 82 percent of people in the state-run exchanges.”

“There was a pretty wide disparity in the percentage of people qualifying for federal subsidies in some state-run exchanges. In the District of Columbia, for example, just 16 percent of sign-ups qualified for premium subsidies. The subsidy eligibility rate was also relatively low in Colorado (60 percent), Hawaii (38 percent) and Vermont (59 percent).”

    The Republicans have done themselves a huge disservice by not passing the unemployment extension bill in the senate. With more than 2.6 million unemployed families who had lost their benefits late last December, and have been struggling to provide shelter and food for their children, it was one of the cruelest and heartless moves for them to make. They have been at war with the poor and disadvantaged in our country, and have made it known where and to whom their allegiance lies. The republicans have been using the extension bill “hostage” for the past six months, in order to have the Koch brother’s oil pipeline deal passed in the senate. This is whom they truly represent. The republicans have shown that the average American citizen, takes a back seat to special interest groups, and wealthy lobbyist. The party which claims to represent family values, has let these millions of families left hung out to dry. These families have had to face evictions, home foreclosures, personal bankruptcy. THE REPUBLICANS NEED TO BE VOTEDOUT OF OFFICE IN THE NEXT ELECTION FOR THEIR TOTAL FAILURE ON THIS MATTER.
