Reminder: No matter how Obamacare enrollment is spun, the net number of uninsured is skyrocketing

According to the Obama administration, just over 106,000 people have health insurance plans in their shopping carts, and nearly four times that many signed up for Medicaid. Yay Obamacare!

Even taking the numbers below at face value, remember that twice as many people watched Sharknado.

**FACT: In political jurisprudence, Nancy Pelosi putting “FACT” before a statement legally invalidates the veracity of what follows.

In spite of the Dems’ arm-waving distractions, the takeaway should be this: Since Obamacare’s implementation, nearly 5 million people have received cancellation letters for their current insurance, which means the number of Americans finding themselves without health insurance has seen a net increase of around 4.5 million. Great news, according to the Democrats, possibly because these people will be forced into a marketplace of their creation.

Obamacare is a paradox of a law — those who pushed for the ACA’s passage laud its existence partly because it provides a safety net for victims of its passage. Go figure.

However, it’s possible people will just pay the penalty, which is increasingly likely as the premiums on this “affordable” insurance continue to be unaffordable. Because of that possibility, the number of Americans without health insurance after Obamacare could be higher than it was before Obamacare for quite some time.
