Mr. Maggie Fox and her husband seem to have a lot of problems with numbers, it seems to Cheap Seats.
Mr. Fox, also known as Sen. Mark Udall (D-Desperate) played the “Do you know who I am?” game with the state officials responsible for tracking how well Obamacare is working.
Note to geniuses everywhere: It ain’t.
Just by means of comparison, had Obamacare had as good a year as the Houston Texans, we’d be hearing no end about the joy of the individual mandates and the friendly power of the public-private-political partnership., Motto: “Nothing to worry about, dear, just sign over all you own and we’ll take care of you. Until we don’t.”
As it is, Gary Kubiak is looking for a job and Obamacare is an unmitigated failure.
Witness the fact the Udall tightened the screws on the Colorado Division of Insurance, which had the temerity to report the fact that a quarter-million Coloradans lost their insurance that didn’t meet the “high standards” of Obamacare.
Those high standards? Making single guys, grandmothers and eunuchs pay for maternity insurance, for starters. These guys know coercion, not insurance and Udall picked up on the lesson.
Udall, however, also has apparently absorbed the Obamacare lesson of incompetence. The idea of putting the screws to bureaucrats works best when kept under wraps.
In this case, news got out, making Udall look the bully and the doofus at the same time.
Which brings us back to math.
Udall wants to spend millions on “global warming” when the earth hasn’t warmed in two decades. He’s hauled in 250 large annually in his wife’s salary at the Climate Reality Project (CRaP) and seems to think no one can connect the dots. The more fright he could generate, the more money he stood to make.
Of course the wife, Maggie Fox, just lost her gig, and the megabucks that came with it, so Udall’s government salary is all the more important.
That could be why Udall wanted to “trash the numbers” when the facts came out on the number of people who lost their insurance under Obamacare.
Udall, after all, parroted Obama when he promised people they could keep their insurance if they liked it.
People counted on that promise and they’re likely to remember that when election time rolls around.
By the simple math up here in the Cheap Seats, it looks like Udall playing fast and loose with the numbers is a net minus, meaning his numbers could get, pardon the observation, trashed.
