Sebelius: Coverage Will/May Cost Less Than $100

From the Christian Science Monitor:

Touting Obamacare, US says millions could pay less than $100 a month

A report by HHS says 56 percent of uninsured could pay $100 or less (or nothing) for health coverage.

By Linda Feldmann | September 17, 2013

Millions of Americans are about to discover the deal Uncle Sam is offering for health insurance: tax subsidies that bring the cost of coverage down to less than $100 a month.

For the record, costs are not going down for the suckers who have pay the taxes which will subsidize other people’s premiums.

Under Obamacare, an estimated 21.9 million uninsured Americans will be eligible to purchase subsidized health insurance via online marketplaces, which begin enrollment Oct. 1. Of those, nearly half – 10.8 million – may be able to buy insurance for $100 or less per month, after factoring in tax credits, according to a report issued Tuesday by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)…

With the emphasis on "may." Moreover, since there will be no income verification, the decision will probably rest with the ACORN/SEIU/Planned Parenthood ‘Navigator’ you draw.

From the Weekly Standard:

Sebelius Goes from ‘Will Get Covered’ to ‘Can’ to ‘May’

By JERYL BIER | September 17, 2013

Tuesday morning, Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) Kathleen Sebelius announced on Twitter:

Kathleen Sebelius: "Big news! Nearly 6 in 10 uninsured Americans will #GetCovered for less than $100/month starting Jan 1 "

However, while Sebelius’s claim sounds like a sure thing ("will" get covered,) the accompanying graphic is somewhat less unequivocal, employing the phrase "can"get covered. But the truth is even one additional step removed. 

The HHS press release, which Sebelius refers to but does not link to, reads as follows:

A new report released today by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) shows that 56 percent, or nearly six in ten of the people who don’t have health insurance today may be able to get coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace for less than $100 per month.

Sebelius’s words recall President Obama’s confident pledge that Americans will be able to keep their doctors under Obamacare, a pledge that changed to "may" on the HealthCare.gov website just this summer…

Nitpickers!

  1. I am truly surprised God hasn’t struck these liars with bolts of lightning …

    Kathleen Sebelius: “Big news! Nearly 6 in 10 uninsured Americans will #GetCovered for less than $100/month starting Jan 1 ” –after factoring in tax credits, according to a report issued Tuesday by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)… If that’s the case, then (obviously) it doesn’t cost $100 a month.

    Has there ever been any truth associated with any part of this bill? Every promise the President has made to the American people regarding this law and either been a lie or has been unconstitutional. Where is the push back from our side?
