As Obamacare’s third enrollment season unfolds against the backdrop of the 2016 presidential election, the administration announced a surprisingly low enrollment goal on Thursday — a target of 10 million people covered through the health law’s exchanges by the end of 2016, or a net increase of roughly 1 million.
The enrollment goal is less than half of what the Congressional Budget Office projected, and reflects the White House’s acknowledgment that the sign-up season beginning Nov. 1 will be one of the most challenging so far. Lowballing the target makes it more likely that it will exceed its 2016 goal despite those difficulties.
"The ACA’s enthusiasts have long held fast to the belief that Americans would come to love the health law as they encountered it in real life," Roy wrote in Forbes. "That has manifestly not happened."

You could offer those that are low income and uninsured 2 physicals per year. You can set up sick bays like they have in the Army. If we got sick we would go to the sick bay and if it was something serious they would send us to the main Hospital. About 90% of the cases were handled in the sick bay. If it's good enough for soldiers why isn't this system good enough for the uninsured who don't need healthcare coverage just healthcare prevention and coverage when needed.

Why not just go back to owning your own health and insurance. Having the government involved with Obamacare or universal healthcare takes freedom away from the individual and will only cost more for everyone.
