Open enrollment for Obamacare ends on March 31 and in the race to meet its projected goals, the Obama administration is spending plenty of money to promote the presidents signature healthcare law.

The New York Times reported:

From January until the end of March, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which runs the HealthCare.gov site and administers the Affordable Care Act, will have spent $52 million on paid media, officials said.

That’s an average of $17 million a month on advertising, or $9 per signup if the administration reaches its revised enrollment goal of six million, The Daily Caller pointed out.

Which is still just a small percentage of the estimated $684 million that will be spent overall on publicity, marketing and advertising the Affordable Care Act, according to The Associated Press.

With ten days left until the deadline, the administration needs an additional one million people to sign up to meet its enrollment goal. Adding to its problems, the critical 18-35 demographic accounts for just 25 percent of the total, compared to original projections of 38.5 percent.

A reality that explains the growing number of unconventional appearances by President Obama to reach young adults.

Obamacare was designed to provide health insurance to the approximately 16 percent of Americans who are uninsured, and any real measure of success will be in accordance to the extent this number is reduced.

Assuming the “most transparent administration ever” is willing to share the figures.

    How does administration say the base to hold this monstrosity up is 18-35 when people can stay on there parents health insurance until 26? Really its 26-35. Thats a lot of people they were counting on and excused at the same time. So in reality if they based the original health insurance numbers off of having not only 100% participation and 100% included 18-26 in order to get the premiums as low as possible to have the best chance of selling this crap to the American people then logically premiums will only go up. Not to mention the illegals that will also be on the health program, premiums are going to start looking like the deductibles and paying off your deductible is going to be like paying off your car.

    Since they have used Medicare money for Medicaid and Obamacare it’s not surprising Medicare coverage has been adversely impacted.

    Why are their so many delays, mandates, changing of the law, lies, hiding of the truth of actually numbers, signing up of jail and prison inmates, and the spending of so much money on Obamacare if it is so great?

    Because of the lies out there from right wing media to dummies, like you.

  • Liberalmann

    You’d rather the law go back to allowing insurance companies deny or drop coverage and let a family member die?

      Just like the law that has caused people to lose their insurance?
