If that’s so, then why are they extending the enrollment period once again…despite Kathleen Sebelius saying they would not? The facts are, the administration said they needed 7 million people to sign up for this thing for it be viable, but since the signups have been so minuscule, they’re willing to accept 6 million…and they can’t even get that.
But the signup numbers aren’t even solid, you’re shooting out a 5 million number and just a few months ago, Sebelius was throwing out a 6 million estimate and HHS was touting 4 million last month. So, which is it? Does anyone know? CNN believes the actual number back in January was closer to 2.1 million people that actually signed up for private insurance plans from the website, the rest are a blend of new and existing Medicaid enrollees. According to their official report in March, they’re touting 4.2 million people who both have and have not paid a premium. But that report explains even more miserable statistics…
69% of enrollees are 35+ years old. Which eaves only 31% healthy young individuals paying into the plan. On top of that, based on 5 months of data, 53% of total enrollees are 45-64 in age.
1 million people signed up for Medicare Part D. More government assistance!
4.4 million have signed up or re-enrolled in Medicaid…which remember, is still welfare.
Total uninsured has dropped only 1% according the Gallup poll they cited…which is still nowhere near their numbers in 2009 when the bill was passed. The truth is, only 10% of uninsured Americans have signed up for the Affordable Care Act. That’s it…all this, and that’s all we’ve accomplished? This plan is goddamn brilliant!
It’s no surprise no one is signing up because most of the uninsured hate Obamacare.
6.3 million people had their insurance cancelled thanks to Obamacare.
81% of State Based Marketplace enrollees and 85% of Federal Marketplace enrollees are receiving subsidies. That’s basically taxpayer welfare as well. So, there’s not going to be enough people paying into the system to make up for the cost of subsidies and Medicaid coverage. That’s exactly why the private insurance companies are going to need a federal taxpayer bailout to pay for this damn thing.
Meanwhile, Obama is reneging on his “you can keep your doctor” promise and his
masterchief advisor Valerie Jarrett is flat out lying about the premium increases.
…and learn how to use punctuation you buffoon.
"The 19-year-old illegal Iranian immigrant who was using one of the 2 stolen passports to board MH370 flight, was trying to get away from his chaotic country and wanted to build a new life in Germany. He had his worried mother waiting for him at the airport in Frankfurt.
The Interpol said they can’t find any connection of him with any terrorist organisation.
HE JUST WANTED TO BE WITH HIS MOTHER NO MATTER WHAT.”
Right. This whole story has had me gripped from day 1, and the latest is:
'MH370 DID CRASH IN THE INDIAN OCEAN AND THERE ARE NO SURVIVORS’
Where is your proof?
There is absolutely NO SOLID PROOF that MH370 is on the bottom of The Indian Ocean. I don’t care what any ‘experts’ say.
how come nobody got pregnant at hogwarts? i mean come on, surely there was some unprotected hanky panky going on there.
ahh, makes sense.
#2 just made my day I’m SCREAMING
#7 HAS ME CRYYING OMG :’D
“Lilo and Stitch” 2002
Lilo plays a trick on the tourists.
IF YOU LIVED HERE YOU’D UNDERSTAND
I desperately need to understand
WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY
Was this scene cut from the movie??!!
Fucking christ, do you know what this would have done? What this would have meant to SO MANY people?? The truth of this is devastating. And to think it almost found it’s way into a DISNEY film??
The inclusion of this scene alone would have made it the greatest animated feature the company ever produced. Easily. And if you think that’s hyperbolic clearly you don’t understand.
No, really, if anyone knows why this was cut PLEASE let me know.
oh man WHY WOULD they cut this, this is so great, holy MOLY
It was clearly something the crew was very reluctant to get rid of if it made it all the way to rough-clean (and in a few scenes clean!), fully inbetweened animation. That is like, thousands and thousands of dollars and weeks (months?!) of labour. Maybe a reluctant producer decided they would alienate their white middle-class American audiences by making them feel “too guilty” and pressed them to drop it? It’s unfortunate, it’s one of the most honest accounts of racism in a Disney movie (which is why it’s believable that someone got uncomfortable and made a case to get it chopped)
Designing entertainment by committee for maximum marketability is probably the most heartbreaking process in Hollywood.
I’ve been seeing this around my dash and think it deserves some more recognition!
This shit is hilarious, too.
NO WAIT SHIT
I GET IT NOW
I GET WHY SHE WAS PHOTOGRAPHING TOURISTS AS A HOBBY
SHE WAS BEING FUCKING SATIRICAL AND OBJECTIFYING
IT’S NOT BECAUSE SHE’S A DUMB KID WITH A WEIRD HOBBY IT’S BECAUSE THEY DO THAT TO HER AND HER FRIENDS AND FAMILY LIKE SHE’S SOME KIND OF FUCKING THEME PARK CHARACTER AND SHE WANTS THEM TO KNOW HOW IT FEELS
HOLY FUCKING DICKS DISNEY WHY WOULD YOU CUT THIS
This scene would have made it so much better.
This actually made its way instead into those little Disney comic books they used to sell at Grocery stores, I remember this from one of the Lilo and Stitch comics in them
my grandpa used to water the plants every week and there was a lil frog that would come out and croak until my grandpa sprinkled some water on him and he loved that frog so much
