OVER 17.5 Million More Americans on Medicaid Today Than HHS Predicted in 2010

In 2010 the Obama Department of Health and Human Services predicted in their Actuarial Report that 55.1 million Americans would be enrolled in Medicaid in 2013.

Here’s how that prediction worked out…
A record 72,600,000 were enrolled in Medicaid for at least one month in fiscal 2012. This is more people than the population of France or the United Kingdom.

That means HHS was off by 17.5 million.
Only in government can you be so off in your predictions and still keep your jobs.

More… HHS did not do much better in their 2011 report.
