    Exchanges See Little Progress on Uninsured

    Per the WSJ:

    Early signals suggest the majority of the 2.2 million people who sought to enroll in private insurance through new marketplaces through Dec. 28 were previously covered elsewhere, raising questions about how swiftly this part of the health overhaul will be able to make a significant dent in the number of uninsured.

    Insurers, brokers and consultants estimate at least two-thirds of those consumers previously bought their own coverage or were enrolled in employer-backed plans. . .

    Only 11% of consumers who bought new coverage under the law were previously uninsured, according to a McKinsey & Co. survey of consumers thought to be eligible for the health-law marketplaces. . . One reason for people declining to purchase plans was affordability.

    • It seems like state attorneys general are doing nothing to distance themselves in any substantive way from the mandates of Obama and the Democrat Party to force everyone into ACA. Governors and attorneys general should be coming together and drawing up articles of impeachment to present to their state legislatures which in turn should be pressuring their members of the US Congress to impeach Obama. Maybe it’s just too early. Or maybe they’re all a bunch of weenies that need to be thrown out of office, too.

      After the pain of Obamacare hits full force with the citizenry they’ll have no excuse to not remove this POTUS from office. Of course the argument then becomes Biden. But if he stares at the results he’ll most probably stay in line in order to not also be impeached. That should save us all till the next election.

      • Let me guess. The 2 downgrades were from those that are OK with others paying the freight, regardless of their ability to do so.

        Everyone commenting on this Obamanation of a mess called ACA states that it is UNAFFORDABLE, particularly for younger people who, on a percentage basis, have no need for health insurance. Since many of them are now unemployed, due to the ongoing socialist agenda at Federal and many state levels, they will be applying for Medicaid, adding another level of cost to the burgeoning deficits. It is more than a little bit disheartening that so many think that “money” grows on trees and feel a sense of entitlement to have others paying for their healthcare needs that probably they could do themselves. This is going to end very badly for most people, including the free-loaders.

        On this end many are speaking openly on media networks that nearly all of those in politics are corrupt and what we need is to replace most of them using a 3rd party alternative. We also need more media alternatives to counter the mainstream medias’ bias to continue the socialist/fascist business as usual paradigm.
