Obamacare advertising budget cut 90 percent

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services announced Thursday that they will spend $10 million on advertising for the upcoming November Obamacare enrollment period. This is 90 percent less than the $100 million the Obama administration spent on advertising enrollment last year.

“A healthcare system that has caused premiums to double and left nearly half of our counties with only one coverage option is not working,” Caitlin Oakley, a spokeswoman for the Department of Health and Human Services, said in a statement regarding the change. “The Trump administration is determined to serve the American people instead of trying to sell them a bad deal.”

The announcement also said that the department would be cutting funds to “navigators” who assist people in their ACA enrollment.

“During the most recent open enrollment period, Navigators received over $62.5 million in federal grants while enrolling 81,426 individuals,” the announcement points out.

“For the upcoming enrollment period,” HHS says, “Navigator grantees will receive funding based on their ability to meet their enrollment goals during the previous year. For example, a grantee that achieved 100 percent of its enrollment goal for plan year 2017 will receive the same level of funding as last year, while a grantee that enrolled only 70 percent of its enrollment goal would receive 70 percent of its previous year funding level, a reduction of 30 percent. The new funding formula will ensure accountability within the Navigator program.”

Wow!!  Accountability that will be a new concept for the snowflakes.  I would say this is something Trump has pass down.  A million here and a million there it all adds up.   

You would think their running things like a home budget now.  :lol:

The entire thing was the most stupid concept.  It's amazing how people actually fell for that and thought it was a good idea.

So dumb.
