Default Has Obamacare really signed up 10 million people

WOW!...Whoda thunk?




< Here's how that number breaks down: 2.1 million people have signed up for private insurance through the exchanges. About 4.4 million people have signed up for Medicaid coverage. And about 3.1 million young adults got coverage through Obamacare's rule forcing insurers to cover dependents up to age 26. Then there's the unknown number of people who bought Obamacare-based coverage directly from insurers.>

Has Obamacare really signed up 10 million people?

How many of these people have paid for their insurance, sign ups don't count if you haven't paid for anything?

SADLY... the great bush recession has left a multitude of those below the poverty level and unable to pay for health insurance.

At least they will now be outta the most expensive treatment of all...the emergency rooms.

There's a reason this article was written on Washington Post's blog and opinion section.

B B B Bush ......duly noted.

Also you didn't answer the question, how many paid for their insurance? If you have 10 million sign up, yet only 1 million actually paid for their coverage then the numbers presented are a lie.

Ah yes the refuge of the Obamacare loyalist dead enders when the statistics expose its failure, change the definition of the statistic to make the number pleasing. Young adults encouraged to remain dependent for another 5 years by Obamacare are not enrollees. Thanks to Obamacare they are free riders on employer provided health insurance plans. Enslaving other employees and customers to provide adult "children" with health insurance is Obama's vote buying bribe, not enrollment in the ACA.

Like the claim the ACA was going to let you keep your insurance and doctor, the facts expose the claim Obamacare will reduce emergency room visits as just another example of saying anything to get the bill passed. Medicaid is far and away the most popular option of Obamacare by a 2 to 1 margin. A recently released study of Medicaid recipients shows they use the ER 40% more than others see thread in the Obamacare forum.

Obamacare increases ER usage along with the costs of healthcare. Why bother with making a doctor's appointment if you can find one that takes Obamacare when you can just walk into the ER at your convenience for no cost. But don't worry, the unaccountable death panel bureaucracy will deny care to paying Obamacare recipients to offset the cost.

Don't believe anything on Fox, but believe everything written by a far left blogger like Ezra Klein. No wonder liberals are wrong so often.

That's ENROLLMENT, it's not how many are actually PAYING into the system. What you're doing is like basing sales on what people put in their online shopping carts. NOTHING matters until the $$ changes hands.

Correction.........that would be the Great Obama Recession.......the Statute of Limitations ran out on George W. Bush, Jr. on January 21, 2009. Get your facts right, Bush hasn't been in charge for over 5-years, all of this is Obama's mess, that old saw, it was Bush's fault is just simple minded people who refuse to accept the fact that the current occupant of the White House is sadly, under qualified to hold the office and everything he touches becomes a mess. Stop listening to idiots like Chris Matthews and Rachel Maddow, they are just Obama - Democratic spokesperson's, who think the guy is great. The guy is a disaster in office......STFAN
