"If you like your mom, you can keep your mom."
So prior to Obamacare, we had @30 million uninsured.
With the inception of Obamacare, another 6 million lost their coverage.
Now according to the White House, @ 4 million have signed up.
(36 Million - 4 Million = 32 Million without insurance)
With most paying more for less care now.
"Mom" is sort of correct.
It is the "Mother of all failures!"
How many of those 6 Million whose insurers pushed into new plans transitioned to new plans? Or are you suggesting that everyone that got a notice
said ef it and joined the uninsured?
Can you also tell me how many people have been added via Medicaid expansion at the state level?
Or how many employers added health policies under the mandate?
Or how many people signed up via private policies, not through the exchange?
Just as long as we are running the numbers...
Cuz as far as I can tell...The GOP need to kick this horse until November, but reality is telling a different story.
Americans Stick With Obamacare as Opposition Burns Bright
I'd tell the GOP it would be in their strategic interest to "Move On" before November, but seeing how the theme is to hold on to stuff like "birth
Certificates", "Benghazi" et al. long after the public calls BS on the GOPs spin, I suspect the strategy is to continue to kick the horse into
November and then wonder why the public isn't behind them.
Psst...Obamacare is far from the perfect solution, but it is coughing and fumbling forward and is working better than what we had before and works
better than the GOP ACA alternative of "Die already!"
