    Re: Obamacare enrollment hits 7 million



    As the above chart shows, the uninsured rate has gone from a high of 18% down to 15.6%, a drop of 2.4%. In a nation of approx 320 million, that means 7,680,000 more people who have insurance

    Now it's time for all the people who have blamed every bad thing that's happened to health care since 2010 on ACA to explain how the drop has nothing to do with ACA

    Really, you believe there is evidence of UHC success? where and what is your definition of success, long wait times, inefficient administrative support, high debt?

    Wow, that is awesome news, how did they get that information and cannot tell who signed up, who paid, and how many were eligible for Medicaid? Interesting that this Administration has no problem posting numbers like this and touting them but never explaining them. The old shell game that you want to continue to buy?

    Oh, by the way, is that 14.6% in 2008 uninsured the number during that evil GW Bush term?

    That doesn't make the suggestion you did. You said: It does seem to be presented that way. Are you expecting a parade with fireworks?


    I'm not asking about your question. I'm asking what evidence you have of them not talking about it separately.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    That guy was the Governor of a State and that is where UHC belongs if the people want it, not a national program run by Federal Bureaucrats

    So instead of a 500,000 net gain in my initial reading it would be a 900,000 net gain but 2.6 million adversely affected by the bill versus zero in my initial assumption.

    I think that is worse than my first assumption!
    Again, you're making assumptions. I suspect you negatively effect numbers are skewed. People losing insurance happened in those numbers prior to ACA. Linking them to ACA has been a dubious proposition at best.

You simply don't understand what your taxes fund and how much you will get from those Federal entitlement dollars you spend.

    Retiring with Dignity? LOL, wait until you see how much money you get when you retire with most receiving benefits that put them well below the poverty level.

    Improving healthcare? Do you get to keep your doctor and healthcare plan if you want to? I lost my doctor when I became eligible for Medicare which I was forced to contribute to my entire working career.

    Boo, you just continue to show how easily you are swayed by feel good rhetoric and rather than do your own research you buy what you are told. There is nothing that the govt. does prudently and efficiently and even with a 17.3 trillion dollar debt you continue to buy the liberal rhetoric.
    You're just making excuses. These things are all better due to us acting through government. Instead of just ranting, compare how the elderly lived before to now, for example. Give it a shot.
