CBO: By 2022 Obamacare Will Still Have Left 30 Million People in the Country Uninsured


Didn’t they say the whole point for passing Obamacare was because we needed to cover all the millions who were uninsured?

Currently, accoriding to CBO, there are 53 million uninsured persons in the United States, including uninsured illegal aliens. The CBO estimates that in 2022 — 8 years after the Affordable Care Act has been fully implemented — 30 million people will remain uninsured.

Moreover, under Obamacare, 8 percent of legal U.S. residents will remain without health insurance in 2022, according to CBO.

The report was done to assess the fiscal impact of the Supreme Court June Obamacare decision.

“CBO and JCT [Joint Committee on Taxation] now estimate that the ACA, in comparison with prior law before the enactment of the ACA, will reduce the number of nonelderly people without health insurance coverage by 14 million in 2014 and by 29 million or 30 million in the latter part of the coming decade, leaving 30 million nonelderly residents uninsured by the end of the period,” the report said.

They might not have insurance, but they’ll be paying the tax penalty and the government will have everybody by the nuggets, and that’s all the grand architects of this total POS legislation ever cared about. Honestly, if this law is allowed to stand, I’ll be surprised that if within a decade the health care system hasn’t at least partially collapsed and left even more people uninsured than there were before they passed the law.
