    The number I recall being kicked around under George W. Bush was 44 million now it's 53 million uninsured under the Obama regime........am I shocked... well, not really...:dunno:


    ---------plus.... it costs a hell of a lot more.....:wtf:


    (CNSNews.com) -- A new Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report says that under the Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. Obamacare, 30 million non-elderly Americans will remain without health insurance in 2022.

    One of the main arguments the Obama administration made for passing the Affordable Care Act was that it would provide coverage for the uninsured.

    Currently, accoriding to CBO, there are 53 million uninsured persons in the United States, including uninsured illegal aliens. The CBO estimates that in 2022--8 years after the Affordable Care Act has been fully implemented--30 million people will remain uninsured.


    Democrat response....:arrow:.....:lalala:..

    aside from the fact that if you post it, i'm fairly sure it's an obama-deranged lie; the same plan in massachusetts has left most residents insured.

    but you can continue to lie if you'd like.

    Open enrollment in the new and improved markets begins October 1, 2013. Check back after that.

    No "maybe later" about it. A lot of folks in a lot of states have been doing yeoman's work getting ready to open consumer-friendly marketplaces for tens of millions of new consumers next year. And by this time next year, those markets will be ready to open and that work will have paid off big time. Particularly for the folks you're feigning concern for in the OP.

    If they have a serious condition, they find one of ObamaCare's Pre-existing Condition Insurance Plans.

    It's been two and a half years. And states and feds alike are racing to make sure they're ready to go live in a year. You don't reform insurance markets overnight but we're almost there.

    Unless you prefer to smash the progress that's been made, pull the rug out from underneath these markets, and say "too bad" to these 50+ million people (and rising) forever?

    Have you noticed the reduction in insurance rates promised by Obama/Democrats yet..?

    ..and how about those waivers from Obamacare, those are enlightening, wouldn't you say?

    Have I noticed the thing they promised would happen in 2014 yet? Well, no, I reckon not.

    The coverage gains thus far have been through the smaller, more immediate reforms: the very sick enrolling in PCIPs and young people being allowed to stay on or rejoin family plans.

    The real coverage expansions have always been scheduled for January 1, 2014 (though, as I mentioned, folks can start shopping for plans on October 1, 2013).

    There are no "waivers from Obamacare." Some employers are allowed to avoid phasing out annual benefit limits until 2014, and certain states are taking a slower approach to meeting medical loss ratio requirements in their markets. Nobody's gotten out of anything.
