ObamaCare was sold as a way of dealing with the uninsured and it’s been about as successful in that as the War on Poverty was in fighting poverty. Instead of reducing the ranks of the uninsured, in California, Covered California has expanded them instead.
By the end of October, the executive director of California’s Obamacare exchange confirmed that up to 900,000 people in the state would lose their current health insurance by the end of 2013–not including those who may lose it through their workplaces in 2014.
Many of those are among the 500,000 or so who signed up for Obamacare through Covered California by the end of 2013–about 330,000, according to McCormack. That also means that only about 200,000 previously uninsured people signed up for Obamacare.
As for the other 600,000 or so, no one know what happened to them–they are just uninsured. The state refused to participate in President Barack Obama’s proposed “fix” for those who had their policies canceled.
So roughly three times as many people have lost insurance as have gained it.
We had to destroy the village to save the village to destroy the village, with the village being health care.
The left of course doesn’t care. From its point of view, the worse it makes its hybrid mix of government and free market health care, the readier the people will be for Single Payer and death panels and all the other fun parts of Socialized medicine.
Everything from the HMOs was leading up to the planned collapse of the health care system into a decrepit Third World mess overseen entirely by government bureaucrats and staffed entirely by union members.
