We reported on the “conference call” earlier. It wasn’t as much a conference call as it was Obama in a rather bored fashion, simply speaking. Even the call had connection problems.
Overinflated numbers of sign-ups, and over-inflated numbers of supposed listeners on the call. They’re counting our Defend, in that “200,000 progressives” number, so what does that tell you?
Via Daily Mail:
President Barack Obama told a conference-call audience of 200,000 progressive volunteers on Monday evening that ‘more than 100 million Americans’ – in a nation of less than 314 million – have successfully signed up for health insurance via the Affordable Care Act.
A weary-sounding Obama made the gaffe during a call hosted by Organizing For Action, the nonprofit successor to his campaign organization Obama For America.
“I just wanted to take a few minutes to speak to everybody because you guys are the ones who are in the trenches, day-in, day-out,’ Obama said, complaining of ‘misinformation’ that has circulated about his signature health care law. But ‘problems with the website … have created and fed a lot of this misinformation,’ he admitted. Boasting of his administration’s skill in encouraging taxpayers to buy health insurance policies through public marketplaces, he claimed that ‘in the first month alone, we’ve seen more than 100 million Americans already successfully enroll in the new insurance plans.’
