After several additional minutes of Obamacare exuberance, Schultz stepped out on the ledge:
“I’m going to make a prediction tonight. It’s going to hit 5 million by March 1st. That’s right. Five million people signed up by March 1st. Get your tapes rolling at home, folks, because it’s going to be a big ‘I told you so.'”
Yes, a big “I told you so” for Schultz’s detractors. Yesterday, the Department of Health and Human Services announced that Obamacare enrollment as of March 1 stood at 4.2 million.
Had that figure been 800,000 higher, Uncle Ed would have bellowed to viewers at the very top of his show, chest first, about the ascendancy of Obamacare. Instead, he started out by discussing the Keystone XL pipeline.
