Transparency! Mystery Shrouds Plans for Release of ObamaCare Enrollment Data

Posted by on Nov 05, 2013 at 8:10 pm

What difference does it make? They’re just going to keep lying about everything.

The Obama administration said it will publish Affordable Care Act enrollment data next week, but has repeatedly refused to disclose which figures it plans to release.

The silence from federal health officials raises the possibility that they will release a single sign-up number that fails to shed light on how the enrollment effort is really proceeding.

The long-awaited disclosure will come as the White House works to quell a political firestorm over both real and perceived problems with its healthcare reform rollout.

President Obama’s chief of staff, Denis McDonough, met with top insurance executives Tuesday and asked them to explain cancellation letters their customers have received in the mail.

A foggy, imprecise data release would signal a continued effort by the administration to control the flow of details about the healthcare law in the face of an unfriendly news cycle.

“There is a political battle underway and information is one of the weapons,” said Steven Aftergood, an advocate for government transparency with the Federation of American Scientists. “They are not interested in public exposure that could be politically disadvantageous in the short term.”

As Sebelius is fond of saying: Whatever.

    I would like as much effort put into making the Affordable Care Act work as there has been to kill it.
    so much hype and mistruths repeated over again has people believing out right lies and manipulated story lines.
    reality? it took 3 years to get Medicare right…. and every year as a Medicare recipient I have to re-evaluate my choices and cost on supplementary policies and coverage changes , deductibles change, why is this not explained we too have a window between October and Dec 7 to pick a plan, how hard is this??? I it is the law of the land, and it would have been so much better if it had been single payer. Oh, and by the by, insurance companies drop plans and coverage at whim, so to connect it to ACA is simply to add fuel to the fire. they are the problem as is the Pharms, FOLLOW THE MONEY !

    Because you changed the law!

    But demonizing the insurers is the plan. Only single payer under our benevolent leader will save us!

    Ms. Deprezing.

    Thank you for admitting that you are one of the system’s sponges. For your edification, I have been following the money for quite some time now. I follow it from out of my paycheck into you and your ilk’s bottomless-hole lives.

    Have you gotten your new flat-screen yet this year?
