Lying through our teeth: Bam inflates Obamacare enrollees

 The Federal Government happily announced in September that ObamaCare enrollments were above seven million, meaning that a projection issued by the Congressional Budget Office last year had been met. Look now, however, and the figure is back below seven million, reports Bloomberg. Why? To get to the higher figure, the administration quietly changed the way it counted enrollments—instead of just those with medical coverage, it added in people with dental coverage. Previously, health care officials had reported the numbers separately, and the additional 380,000 dental subscribers put the total above the CBO's threshold. When Republican fact-checkers noticed the change, the Department of Health and Human Services backtracked and reverted to the lower number. Source.         [BJS]
