President Obama, in a speech to Congress in September 2009, stated that the central goal of the Affordable Care Act was extending health-care coverage to the "more than 30 million American citizens who cannot get coverage." Yet here we are nearing the end of open enrollment, and the number of Americans who lack insurance exceeds 30 million...So we are left with two not-mutually-exclusive conclusions we can draw about Obamacare: it's an abject failure in its stated goal, and/or its stated goal is not its actual goal.
BY THE NUMBERS
14: percentage of Affordable Care Act enrollees as of Feb. 1 who were previously uninsured
900,000: number of current enrollees who would be previously uninsured assuming the same percentage
10: estimated percentage of U.S. uninsured covered by the ACA so far
Either way, you have only the Democrats, and the people who voted for them, to thank for this. Remember, Obamacare passed without a single Republican vote in either house of Congress. Have Republicans ever passed such a debacle that way?
