    It is people who signed up on the exhange many of whom lost their insurance because of Obamacare and weren't counted in the 40, 48, or whatever number of millions reported as uninsured. How many of those people are included in the 6 million? How many of that 6 million were people who were eligible for Medicaid prior to Obamacare? Seems like reasonable questions and shouldn't you know before touting the 6 million number?

    Oh, and by the way signing up doesn't assure being insured, paying the premium does

    Since you've gone back to worrying about the uninsured, I'll once again point out that the uninsured rate has been going down thanks to ACA

    I mean he could have told the media that 66 Million people signed up, and Liberals would have bought it and then showed up here and embarrassed themselves.

    People like Top Cat HAVE TO take what ever he feeds them, because they've devoted so much energy and time to that corrupted ideology.

    And since Liberals dont understand or appreciate the concept of humility, they WON'T change their minds.
    Don't you love too how they said they needed 6 million - and they got 6 million with only days left to go?

    15 million didn't sign up. Nor did 9 million. Nor did 2 million. Nor did 20 million. They needed 6 million - and they say they got 6 million.

    Obama and his cohorts should play Powerball. It's amazing how they hit almost exactly the number they said they would hit.

    Yes, it was bad when it seemed that their #'s were off, and even worse now that it appears their #'s are spot on.

    What is the number of uninsured that you are willing to accept and doesn't it bother you that after 3 years of a program being passed and promoted we have a total of 6 million signed up and we don't know the make up of those 6 million? You think Gallup is credible? They ask people if they are insured and if they signed up they believe they are insured even though they haven't made the premium.

    Now answer the question, since you want badly to buy the 6 million how many were previously insured but lost their insurance and how many were eligible for Medicaid prior to Obamacare but didn't sign up?

    I don't care where they get their insurance from as long as the uninsured rate goes down, which it has thanks to ACA!!!

    You keep using the 40+ million, where does that numnber come from?

    “We hear a lot these days about 45 million Americans who don’t have health insurance.

    …According to the US Census Bureau, 17 million of those without health insurance live in households having over $50,000 in annual income. That’s 38% of the uninsured in America.(2)

    In fact, 9 million – 20% of the uninsured – reside in households pulling down more than $75K a year. (3)

    …And then there are the young invincibles. Over 18 million of the uninsured are people between the ages of 18 and 34. (4) They spend more than four times as much on alcohol, tobacco, entertainment and dining out as they do for out-of-pocket spending on health care.(5) They represent 40% of the uninsured in America.

    …14 million people without health insurance are eligible for government health care programs like Medicaid and S-CHIP but choose not to enroll. (7) They represent %31 – nearly one third – of the uninsured in America.

    …The U.S. has 12 million illegal immigrants who don’t buy health insurance but still get health care.

    …So, how many are truly uninsured? Around eight million. Just
