    Yes, with all that govt intervention in the health care system, we got great health care.

    Which is why the right is so in favor of govt intervention in the health care system, right?

    I'm not asking about your question. I'm asking what evidence you have of them not talking about it separately.
    Once again, look at the OP. Are those 7 million Obamacare alone or part Medicaid. If part Medicaid, what part?

    Real Clear politics disagree with you, you seem to have a problem in the liberal state of NY getting what you want. Why force what you want on the entire country? How does someone in TX that is uninsured affect you?

    National polls mean nothing as this is a state issue so put it to the states for a vote and see how it turns out. What are you afraid of and you still didn't answer the question but then again you never do, how does an uninsured in TX affect you and your family?

    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
    What that chart also shows is a net loss of about 5.1 million insurance policies in 2013 (eyeball 16.4% rate at start of 2013). So the net gain in that time was 1.6 million. That is bad news given that 3 million of the 7.7 million came from Medicaid. So it appears that the Private side of the equation had a net loss of 1.4 million insured people since the start of 2013 based on Gallop.

    That certainly is your opinion but you haven't explained why it is a national issue since healthcare costs for the uninsured are paid by the state and local communities. I am still waiting for you to explain how the uninsured in TX affect you and your family? You see you buy what you are told by a liberal govt. who is looking for more and more power and with people like you they are getting it. This country wasn't built on that principle of a large central govt. and this one has generated a 17.3 trillion dollar debt and has trillions in unfunded liabilities in SS and Medicare. Why aren't you concerned about the 250 billion dollars in debt service spent each year and going up as interest rates rise that helps NO ONE. 40% goes to foreign countries. Seems to me that money could be better served here so why not just give people a check to buy their own insurance?

    There is no logic and common sense with liberalism as you cannot explain why we need UHC run by a govt. that has no history of being prudent with taxpayer money or doing anything efficiently. this is simply known as spending in the name of compassion without getting compassionate results.

    What the chart shows is that the uninsured percentage went up after Bush left office and still hasn't gotten back to Bush levels even after three years of promotion of ACA. What we have seen is people losing their health insurance, having their premiums go up, deductibles going up, and people getting subsidized by the actual taxpayers. Liberalism is an absolute disaster
