So What Was The Point of Obamacare Again? | National Review Online
Quote:
Early signals suggest the majority of the 2.2 million people who sought to enroll in private insurance through new marketplaces through Dec. 28 were previously covered elsewhere, raising questions about how swiftly this part of the health overhaul will be able to make a significant dent in the number of uninsured.

Insurers, brokers and consultants estimate at least two-thirds of those consumers previously bought their own coverage or were enrolled in employer-backed plans.
Note, this is after decades of liberals insisting that the uninsured were desperate to get insurance and years of Obama officials and defenders swearing that this law would make it happen. Indeed, in order to make it happen the Democrats blew up the entire health-care industry casting millions of people off their existing insurance plans. When those people went to exchanges to sign up for new ones, the Obama administration took credit for it, as if they were doing something for the uninsured. But barely 1 in 10 of new Obamacare enrollees were previously uninsured.

Clearly the fault of Obama.

So you're not going to follow me on Twitter then?

Also, The National Review describes itself as America's most widely read and influential magazine and web site for conservative news, commentary, and opinion, so you know you're getting non-partisan, unbiased opinions.

all i'm seeing from that graph is in one month, the number fell from 17.3% to 16.1%. how is that a bad thing? was the author of that article seriously thinking the number would fall to 0%? that's laughable. as usual, this is just some article designed to create panic and rage for the uninformed on the right - note it doesn't even explain or even try to guess why or how these people are uninsured. the moral's just "well it's clearly obama's fault! obamacare obamacare!"

no talk of those who still can't get insurance in states (RED states, btw) that refuse to expand medicare and thus don't qualify for obamacare, but can't afford to pay the premiums offered. no talk of the homeless in every state. nope, it's just "well obama swore he'd give us insurance and fix the economy and gosh golly it's been five years and he waved his magic wand and it hasn't been fixed yet!" geez.

I wish I had a barely 10% chance to safeguard myself from future disasters.

People who don't have insurance or don't think they need it, and the youngest, are the ones who will likely sign up at the very end.

You know, just like in Massachusetts under Gov Romney.

I really enjoyed O's defense if the ACA. In fact, when you hear about children who can now get asthma medicine or people who actually don't go bankrupt because they have cancer, it sounds like the ACA is political offense. I suppose Republicans like it when middle class people are ruined by hereditary diseases, but that's going to be a tough thing to defend in 9 months.

There is unarguable good in the imperfect ACA. Run on that.

i can't speak for all those who are currently uninsured, but i won't be signing up at all. i just have to suck it up and pay a fine. my state is refusing to expand medicaid, my income is $0, yet i can somehow afford at least $130/month. okay.

i've gone without insurance this long, i'll just have to go a little longer.

Not for political purposes mind you but because it's His law, Good King Barack has unilaterally postponed the employer mandate again... until 2015 or 2016.
