Our CSPAN Tweets on 09/19/2013 ObamaCare Hearing

original article written by Net Advisor

WASHINGTON, DC. On Sept. 19, 2013, a Congressional Hearing on Enrollment of Obama Care was held in Washington DC. Needless to say, it was an eye opener. The proponents talk about what’s great about it, but have yet to substantiate their claims using solid independent data.

Our conclusion is that aside from the fact that people are losing jobs, losing work hours, and losing their health-insurance BECAUSE of the implementation of ObamaCare, we see high risk of taxpayer scams that are likely to take place.

According to a piece published in the Boston Herald, costs to initially fund ObamaCare are expected to be $40 Billion vs the original $5 Billion – That’s 800% over original costs.

Gary Cohen, director of the Department of Health and Human Services’ Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight.

He was talking about the apparently surprising need to halt enrollments in a program designed as a temporary bridge for people with pre-existing conditions who couldn’t wait to be covered by the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) when it fully kicks in next year.

The program was allocated $5 billion, but some estimate it would take $40 billion to fund the effort.

Gary Cohen, deputy administrator and director of the Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS.gov) was grilled by mostly (R) members of Congress yesterday on a fact finding mission.

The (D) representatives tended to defend and support Cohen and Obama Care in general. I don’t recall a single tough question a (D) Representative asked Cohen during the hearing.

Cohen had great difficulty in answering specific (R) questions. Cohen often did not know the facts to be able to answer a question, and was vague about the implication of ObamaCare. Gary Cohen is also the ObamaCare Enrollment Chief.

Here are some key tweets to summarize some of the key points in the ObamaCare Hearing broadcasted on CSPAN on Sept. 19, 2013.
