The math behind Barack Obama, Kathleen Sebelius, and PPACA website enrollment

See also

Yesterday CBS News reported that on October 1, 2013, the first official day that consumers could sign up for the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) aka Obamacare, there was a total of 6 enrollments. By the end of the second day there was total of 248 enrollments. Not a great success numbers-wise, more like a dismal embarrassing failure for President Barack Obama as well as Kathleen Sebelius, the nation's Secretary of Health & Human Services since 2009.

Looking at this situation I noticed something interesting about the numbers and started to do a little math. Math is short for Mathematics - an exact science, the tool by which God constructed the universe, as well as a helpful numerical skill that no currently elected politician seems to possess.

Notice the numbers in 248 (the total number of enrollees) ... 2, 4, and 8.
Realize that 2 x 4 = 8
Notice that 2 + 4 = 6 (the number of first day enrollees)
Barack is composed of 6 letters.
Kathleen is composed of 8.

Now let's assign each letter of the alphabet it's corresponding numerical value, such that a = 1, b = 2, c = 3 ... z = 26.

Upon doing so we can add up the numerical value of each person's first and last name as well as the PPACA:
Barack = 36
Obama = 32
Kathleen = 76
Sebelius = 92
Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act = 360

But we have come to realize that the PPACA is absolutely not affordable, so let's remove that misnomer to gain a more accurate result.

360 - 70 (affordable) = 290.

What is significant about 290?
290 = 6 + 248 + 36 (Barack)

Looking a little deeper into this construct we discover:

Obama = 32 ... 3 x 2 = 6
Barack = 36 ... 3 x 6 = 18
Sebelius = 92 ... 9 x 2 = 18
Kathleen = 76 ... 7 x 6 = 42

That's right: 6 + 18 + 18 = 42

The intertwining of Barack Obama & Kathleen Sebelius = a nightmare worse than many had imagined. It has often been said that numbers don't lie, but people do.

"... the website has never crashed." - Kathleen Sebelius said to Congress
"If you like your plan you can keep your plan." - said Barack Obama to everyone in America

Father, forgive their sins, but is it possible to fire these people and hire competent citizens who simply won't lie to us?
