"Enrollments Are Up!" So What?

The line from the ObozoCare shills is taken directly from Deception 101 (sorta like the Ryan line below).

It ain't "enrollments," folks.  It's non-Medicaid AND "paid premium" that counts.

The budget deal would spend $63 billion more over the next two years-but take 10 years to make up for this splurge. This is a common Washington gimmick. To the conferees' credit, the deal suggests one-third in additional deficit reduction-the details of which remain to be evaluated.
The budget conferees failed to make substantive reforms to the real drivers of spending and debt: the entitlement programs. Representative Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) forged a deal that would increase spending immediately, while delaying deficit reduction till later and trading spending cuts for more revenue.
