Gallup: Fewer uninsured Americans thanks to Obamacare

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – As critics of President Barack Obama’s Affordable Health Care Act continue to attack it, a new report shows the law is actually working.

Gallup says the rate of Americans without health insurance has dropped thanks in part to Obamacare.

As of the end of 2014, 12.9 percent of adults lacked health coverage. That’s down by over 4 percent since the program rolled out in 2013.

As of last fall, about 6.7 million Americans have enrolled in the health program.

The expansion of Medicaid in more than half of the country also helped to bring down the number of uninsured Americans.

    Before Obamacare, employers generally purchased health insurance plans for employees based on a 40 hour work week. Now, Obamacare requires 30 hours and health insurance plans are more expensive. This result is the law of unintended consequences that government so often produces. Perhaps the Democrats should have read the bill before passing it.

    Obamacare does NOTHING to help solve the long-standing problems of health care; it merely throws more money at them. We all know how THAT works.

    only the freeloaders loved obummercare. these 87% bloodsuckers comprising the enrollee majority are getting healthcare for nothing, paid for by the hardworking americans with decent jobs/assets ready to be stripped off by destroyer, commie, socialist obozo. obummercare is sabotaging individual freedom, the very core of the american values. obummercare got to be repealed/replaced ASAP, if america has to survive economically. there are no trillions to run obummercare, borrowing trillions from china will never ever stop as evidenced by the non stop increasing debt light blinking numbers should scare people, who care so much for america’s survival. obozo’s goal is to throw americans under the bus. its so sad the demonicrap party are nothing but far out lefties leaders with all their policies rooted from socialism, instead of individualism rooted from the constitution of the founding fathers, that made america the envy of the world.
