February Numbers: 6.2 Million Lost Insurance Thanks to Obamacare – 4.2 Million Sign Up for New Obamacare Plans
In February 2014, Karl Rove reported in the Wall Street Journal that 6.2 million Americans have lost their health care plans:
Mr. Obama saw the firestorm that erupted last fall when Americans lost their health policies because their policies didn’t conform to ObamaCare’s requirement for “essential benefits” and other mandates. Based on a flurry of reports and estimates that have come out since October, Jim Angle of Fox News says that 6.2 million have lost their health coverage so far.
Yesterday the Wall Street Journal reported that 4.2 million Americans have enrolled in health care plans.
Some 4.2 million people enrolled in health-care plans using government portals as of last month, the Obama administration said Tuesday, leaving millions more sign-ups needed this month to meet the Affordable Care Act’s enrollment targets.
Around 943,000 people picked plans in February, down slightly from 1.14 million who chose plans in January, a decrease that federal officials attributed to February’s shorter length.
That means two million more Americans are without insurance today than when Obamacare started.
Nice job, Democrats.
More… And, 900,000 enrollees still haven’t paid for their coverage.
