So, things like the 7 million losing coverage, that is not the whole story. In point of fact, the whole story is much more complex. CBO projects that in 2013, 154 million will have insurance through an employer. By 2023, that number is going to be 167 million. Hrmmmmmm... Total insured in 2013, 272 million , in 2023, 288 million. There is even a nice little footnote to explain the employer insurance number:
So, don't trust people who link to editorials, and then claim they are referencing CBO reports. There is good and bad with Obamacare, and overall I do not like it. But since it isn't even fully ****ing implemented yet, I am not going to go all out scare tactics to try and convince people it must be bad. The irony in this case is the person using scare tactics is the same guy who cryed about them(and rightfully), during the discussion of Paul Ryan's proposed changes to Medicare. How quick they move to all out hypocrisy.The change in employment-based coverage is the net result of increases in and losses of offers of health insurance from employers and changes in enrollment by workers and their families. For example, in 2019,
an estimated 12 million people who would have had an offer of employment-based coverage under prior law will lose their offer under current law, and another 3 million people will have an offer of
employment-based coverage but will enroll in health insurance from another source instead. These flows out of employment-based coverage will be partially offset by an estimated 7 million people who will
newly enroll in employment-based coverage under the Affordable Care Act.
