The five stages of grief…


The Obamacare Roll out has not gone according to plan, not even close to according to plan. They have managed to enroll 1% of their projected 6 month numbers. So, what is the Obama Whitehouse strategy for this problem? It’s the same solution that they have used on every problem that has cropped up since his election in 2008, they plan on lying to the American people.

Who counts as an Obamacare enrollee? The Obama administration settles on a definition.

The fight over how to define the new health law’s success is coming down to one question: Who counts as an Obamacare enrollee?

Health insurance plans only count subscribers as enrolled in a health plan once they’ve submited a payment. That is when the carrier sends out a member card and begins paying doctor bills.

When the Obama administration releases health law enrollment figures later this week, though, it will use a more expansive definition. It will count people who have purchased a plan as well as those who have a plan sitting in their online shopping cart but have not yet paid.

“In the data that will be released this week, ‘enrollment’ will measure people who have filled out an application and selected a qualified health plan in the marketplace,” said an administration official, who requested anonymity to frankly describe the methodology.

The disparity in the numbers is likely to further inflame the political fight over the Affordable Care Act. Each side could choose a number to make the case that the health law is making progress or failing miserably.

On Monday, the Wall Street Journal, citing anonymous sources, said insurance companies have received about 50,000 private health plan enrollments through HealthCare.gov. Even combined with state tallies, the figure falls far short of the 500,000 sign-ups the administration initially predicted for both private sign-ups and those opting for the expansion of Medicaid.

In recent weeks, administration officials have warned that the enrollment figures for October would be low, given the tumultuous launch of the health Web site.

The administration plans to use this count of enrollees because that’s where their interaction with the healthcare.gov site ends, the administration official said. Insurance plans, rather than the federal government, are responsible for collecting the first month’s premium.

The shopping cart on healthcare.gov only contains space for one health plan, meaning the consumer must have gotten far enough to settle on a specific option.

Addressing the Wall Street Journal’s report, Health and Human Services spokeswoman Joanne Peters said: “We cannot confirm these numbers. More generally, we have always anticipated that initial enrollment numbers would be low and increase over time. . . . The problems with the Web site will cause the numbers to be lower than initially anticipated.”

Sooner or later even the Fifth Column Treasonous Media will be unable to cover up or make excuses for the lies that the Obama Administration has been telling the American people. Their will come a point in time, where the Media decides that their own futures must take precedences over their desire to help a president who shares their ideological direction. Obama will not be president forever, but the damage to their financial standing that will result from the general public associating them with President Liar Liar Pants on Fire very well could.

Thanks to the catastrophically disastrous roll out of Obamacare, Americans in large part are becoming aware of just how pernicious a liar Barack Obama is and has been. Not only can it no longer be hidden, even by the Mainstream Media’s best efforts and most deceitful tricks even Barack Obama’s once vaunted elegant and soaring oration can no longer cast a spell or cloak across them. moreover, it likewise has become indisputable apparent that America has entered into the Kübler-Ross model, or “Five Stages of Grief” as it is called. The Kübler-Ross model comes into play whenever a person learns something devastating. Usually is associated with learning that one is dying or that a very close loved one is dying. However it is not exclusive to end of life situations, people also transition through the Kübler-Ross model when they discover that they have been lied to by someone that they profoundly respected.

Stages

The stages, popularly known by the acronym DABDA, include:[2]

Denial — “I feel fine.”; “This can’t be happening, not to me.”
Denial is usually only a temporary defense for the individual. This feeling is generally replaced with heightened awareness of possessions and individuals that will be left behind after death. Denial can be conscious or unconscious refusal to accept facts, information, or the reality of the situation. Denial is a defense mechanism and some people can become locked in this stage. Kubler Ross recommends that family members and health professionals not prolong denial by distorting the truth about the person’s condition. In doing so, they prevent the dying person from adjusting to impending death and hinder necessary arrangements, for social supports, for bringing closure, and for making decisions about medical interventions. [3]

Anger — “Why me? It’s not fair!”; “How can this happen to me?”; ‘”Who is to blame?”
Once in the second stage, the individual recognizes that denial cannot continue. Because of anger, the person is very difficult to care for due to misplaced feelings of rage and envy. Anger can manifest itself in different ways. People can be angry with themselves, or with others, and especially those who are close to them. It is important to remain detached and nonjudgmental when dealing with a person experiencing anger from grief.

Bargaining — “I’ll do anything for a few more years.”; “I will give my life savings if…”
The third stage involves the hope that the individual can somehow postpone or delay death. Usually, the negotiation for an extended life is made with a higher power in exchange for a reformed lifestyle. Psychologically, the individual is saying, “I understand I will die, but if I could just do something to buy more time…” People facing less serious trauma can bargain or seek to negotiate a compromise. For example “Can we still be friends?..” when facing a break-up. Bargaining rarely provides a sustainable solution, especially if it’s a matter of life or death.

Depression — “I’m so sad, why bother with anything?”; “I’m going to die soon so what’s the point?”; “I miss my loved one, why go on?”
During the fourth stage, the grieving person begins to understand the certainty of death. Because of this, the individual may become silent, refuse visitors and spend much of the time crying and grieving. This process allows the dying person to disconnect from things of love and affection. It is not recommended to attempt to cheer up an individual who is in this stage. It is an important time for grieving that must be processed. Depression could be referred to as the dress rehearsal for the ‘aftermath’. It is a kind of acceptance with emotional attachment. It’s natural to feel sadness, regret, fear, and uncertainty when going through this stage. Feeling those emotions shows that the person has begun to accept the situation.

Acceptance — “It’s going to be okay.”; “I can’t fight it, I may as well prepare for it.”
In this last stage, individuals begin to come to terms with their mortality, or that of a loved one, or other tragic event. This stage varies according to the person’s situation. People dying can enter this stage a long time before the people they leave behind, who must pass through their own individual stages of dealing with the grief.

Americans as a whole, are passing through the denial stage, and entering the Anger stage. They are angry and they are going to take their anger out on those who they believe are responsible for the betrayal they feel. This is why the Mainstream Media will have little choice but to abandon Obama, they will be faced with the choice of abandoning Obama, and then joining in the public outrage, or becoming objects of the public’s outrage themselves. They may like Obama, love him even, some even worship him, but when push comes to shove, all but those who worship him will feel the inevitable sense of self preservation override their admiration or devotion to him.
