Obamacare Enrollment Reaches 20 Million

Newsweek: “President Barack Obama said on Thursday that some 20 million Americans had become insured as a result of the Affordable Care Act.”

‘Today I can announce that thanks to the law, 20 million more Americans now know the security of health insurance,’ Obama told a crowd in Milwaukee.”

“The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said the estimates Obama referenced included coverage from the expansion of the Medicaid program, health insurance marketplaces, and provisions that allowed young people to stay on their parents’ private insurance plans longer.”

“The 20 million figure was an update to a September 2015 government estimate that 17.6 million Americans had been insured as a result of the Affordable Care Act.”

        Does that make a difference? Because of the ACA, Medicaid has been expanded in states where allowed. I’m surprised all states haven’t taken advantage of this.
