H.H.S. releases a new report on the efficacy of the A.C.A. (Affordable Care Act – “Obamacare”), revealing precisely what I predicted would incur upon implementation a decade ago.
There has been virtually no change in private health insurance coverage because of the ACA, other than the loss of more than 168 health insurers in America since 2013 (which is not mentioned).
The net gain in health coverage because of the ACA is almost entirely due to an increase in Medicaid enrollment.
A sizable percentage of the new Medicaid recipients are not actually eligible for Medicaid.
The cost of the ACA is far higher than was projected by ‘experts’. – C. Steven Tucker

To all voters who moved ‘Forward’ with Barack Obama in this last election cycle. I know the President promised that his health care law would guarantee ‘Affordable Health Insurance” for every American. The truth is, your President lied to you. According to the CBO, his health care law will leave 27 million of you UNINSURED after it’s full implementation. Worse yet, according to the CBO his health care law will place 16 to 17 million of you on a Government WELFARE program known as Medicaid. It is important to understand that Medicaid is nothing like private health insurance. Medicaid does not pay medical providers on time. And, when it does it pay – often many months later – it pays a small fraction of what private health insurance pays.
