Uninsured Rate Hits a Record Low

The Hill: “The uninsured rate has fallen to a new low of 9 percent, marking 16.3 million more people with health insurance since ObamaCare’s coverage expansion took effect in 2013, according to data released Thursday.”

“The survey from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) finds that the uninsured rate was 9 percent in the first six months of the year, corresponding to 28.5 million people, ticking down from 9.2 percent in the first three months of the year.”

“But those changes seem major when compared to previous years. The 9 percent figure is down from 11.5 percent uninsured in 2014 and 14.4 percent in 2013.”

“That corresponds to 7.5 million more people with insurance compared to 2014 and 16.3 million more compared to 2013.”

    You’d think that Democrats would be able to make political hay out of these numbers, but alas! … Amateurs!! :-/ The biggest falls of the uninsured rates AND decline in overall health care spending and costs for decades and they still cannot get credit for arguably the most significant public policy since LBJ’s Great Society. WTF is their problem?
