Latest Obamacare Disaster: Application “Inconsistencies”

With reports of the deadly VA scandal and the release of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl flooding the news, there hasn’t been much media coverage of Obama’s major healthcare overhaul.

And in case you wondering, Obamacare still sucks.

The disaster-laden law’s latest flub invokes about “2 million people” who “enrolled for taxpayer-subsidized private health insurance” who  “have data discrepancies in their applications that, if unresolved, could affect what they pay for coverage, or even their legal right to benefits,” the Associated Press reports

The final number affected could well be higher. According to the administration the 2 million figure reflects only consumers who signed up through the federally administered HealthCare.gov website and call centers. The government signed up about 5.4 million people, while state-run websites signed up another 2.6 million.

News of Obamcare’s latest data discrepancies breaks just as “Congressional budget scorekeepers said they can no longer measure the fiscal impact of many provisions of ObamaCare because the task is impossible,” according to The Hill.

Obamacare is still largely unpopular among Americans four years after the law was passed. 50.8% of the country disapproves of Obamacare, while just 39% approve of the law.
