If you really believe that, I've got some ocean front property in Arizona I'd like to sell...!

And if one reads in to the article closely, there is a lot of blather on the supposed credibility and validity of the data on this claim. In other words take this with a grain of salt, data can be manipulated to prove ones postulate.

Some people are trying to get out of Obamacare and can't cancel.

Any medical or other info given is at risk.
So if you have a wart on your hoo-hoo-dilly, everybody is gonna know about it.
There is no security and they have even admitted that.
I read today that operatives in Belarus had a hand in designing the website.
Good luck!

What they don't say, is most have signed up for medicare, that means the tax payers will foot the bill for their warted willies, not the same as insurance, and it will be rationed health care.
Cull the population!

With just three weeks left to enroll on the new insurance exchanges, the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index, finds that 15.9 percent of U.S. adults are uninsured thus far in 2014, down from 17.1 percent for the last three months — or calendar quarter— of 2013.
Cook the books just like unemployment.
What is wrong with the above statement?
They do not mention that cancellations went out in the last quarter of 13. People were cancelled and many chose to be re-insured thru individual policy insurance or employer insurance.
Plus a huge spike in medicaid coverage. That 1.2% reduction does not show the actual medicaid enrollment which could be a higher percentage than 1.2%.
How many got cancelled and did not repurchase because of premium and deductible increase.

They are leaving skid marks with this spin out.

Hmmmm, we've been footing the bill for how many Medicare recipients for how long now already? If anything, the argument on people that can now afford it but may still jump on MEDICAID, i.e. welfare, is much better. Good summary JAP69. The old plans were allowed to be reinstated for what...two years? Is this a straight forward deal? What about people like me that already have a new plan at a slightly higher premium? Can I go back? Or, because I was successful in obtaining ample coverage through my employer, I'm restricted from going back?

I's gonna get very interesting to say the least.

I really don't know if there are fewer uninsured people but I can tell you that there are now a lot more UNDER insured people with crappy Obamacare policies.
