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.

    How many of the medical professions will still be around to treat all those who will be partially covered by ObamaScare ?

    I fear that with lower pay for Drs, fewer will go to the trouble and expense of med. sch. Then, the gooberment will require lowered entrance scores and therefore lower grad. scores and we will have the quality of Drs of a 3rd world country.

    "and that’s all the grand architects of this total POS legislation ever cared about"

    And it's not like they didn't have 30+ years to think up ways to bring this into reality? With a *deathgrip* on the House and Senate since '06, it wasn't apparently until Teh Wun arrived they "got around" to actually 'crafting' the legislation itself?

    That absolutely confirms Doug's premise. It also explains much of the random and often contradictory terms and conditions we find cobbled together within the Act.

    Hangfire at MM's noted that the very design of Government 'solutions' are to stoke fear and chaos ( WILL I be 'eligible'? Will I be TAXED on this one? ) so we are left w/ no alternative but to turn to them AGAIN AND AGAIN to allay the fears they themselves created…

    This sounds like Zero’s stat-fixing accounting process.

    According to the CBO the current 53 million count of uninsureds INCLUDES illegal aliens.

    8 years later 30 million (which also must include the illegals) will be health uninsured. And the CBO estimates that 8 percent of the 30 million are legal residences.

    Therefore, 92 percent of the 30 million or 27.6 million will be non-tax-paying illegals which, according your point of view may or may not be entitled to free HEALTH insurance (not to be confused with emergency care) which all are entitled to.

    Leaving only 2.4 million of the 30 million to be legals uncovered and without health insurance.

    Those 2.4 million would most probably have to be checked on an individual basis to get any detailed information or questions answered.

    What would be the point of including non-tax-paying illegals if not to stack the stats in order to tug at the heart strings and incite against?

    Looks like a politically motivated report.

    Of COURSE.., it's the CBO! I caught that shell game after having to backtrack thru it. Thinking, so what! Isn't this a little like being underage at a bar drinking on a fake I.D then complaining to the bartender your drink isn't stiff enough..?

    They're already taking enough of a gamble just by letting you IN so you can mingle and maybe even get lucky so try that in the real world and you'd be 86'd in an instant.

    And that's most people's natural instinct. You get the hint when your drink should've come to $7.50 and… you're standing there waiting for your change and…. you're standing there and…? Even hormone-driven teens on the prowl know the score. It's called STFU and start liking it!

    But Dim's want to short circuit the natural order of things by offerin up freebies OTA.
