Well well… surely there is no correlation between President Obama’s signature piece of legislation/law to bring the cost of health care down and to insure the uninsured and the rate of uninsured people dropping… that’s just a coincidence.

Ok, let me get the popcorn ready so that I can sit back and enjoy the tea-bagging right-wingers melt down in 5,4,3,2 …

LOL!

It was just last Wednesday the idiots voted for the 50th time to repeal parts or all of ACA, a vital program that is actually helping citizens in America.

True / but educating the intellectually deficient is much harder than getting people to sign up for health care obviously.

Do you have any idea how many people lie to pollsters? Even if ordinary people didn't lie about their coverage, you don't suppose the liberal polling companies would lie for the Government? Nah. They are all such clean upstanding people. Not a liar among them. Then why are we always catching them lying?

Think that explains the low republican polls, or the incredible wayward poll for Romney's failed challenge to Obama last Nov?

So, this is Obama's new definition of success. 3 to 4 million. Not 7 million (last month's goal) or even 6 million (last week's goal) and certainly not the 30 million originally promised.

"the share of Americans who lack coverage is on track to drop to the lowest quarterly level it measured since 2008, before Obama took office."

Hmmm... Wonder who was President before so many people lost their health insurance coverage?

This is just the initial open enrollment period. They have until the end of the month. Relax, the evidence suggest the trends are positive for insuring the once uninsured which was the purpose of the Law.

It's not unreasonable with the extensions Obama authorized that to insure 40 Million citizens may take 5 years, we are on such a pace.

We know who was President when citizens who were previously shut out of the insurance market were allowed participation.

If you don't have insurance now it's a personal choice, unless you're in a state run by Republicans who refused to expand Medicaid for the working poor..

Sure. We are still "on pace." We used to be "on pace" for 7 million, then we were "on pace" for 6 million.. Now, you say we are "on pace" for 40 million! ROFLMAO!

You say the Republicans shut Americans out of the insurance market, yet this article says there are fewer people with insurance now under Obama than at the worst of times under Bush.

Before Obamacare, if you didn't have insurance it was a personal choice. Now, because of Obama, if you don't have insurance you are breaking the law.

Do you really believe your nonsense?

Presently there are 9 Million individuals insured in either the private plan or Medicaid, over a period of 5 years America can reach 40 Million insured who were not prior to Obama becoming President. HMO didn't do as well when first unveiled to the market during their initial enrollment period.

"You say the Republicans shut Americans out of the insurance market, yet this article says there are fewer people with insurance now under Obama than at the worst of times under Bush."

This is not true, you didn't read the article obviously.

I made no such claim in my post with Regard to Republicans shutting out consumers, Consumers were shut out of the market by Insurers to ensure profits

Currently if you don't have insurance it's because your state hasn't expanded Medicaid for the working poor, or you made a personal choice to forgo insurance.

I don't understand the Banana Republican thinking that people having access to insurance is a bad thing. Insurance to a civil society is just as accommodating as Police and Fire protections. Those are the very things taxes are collected to make a livable society.

As documented in the article, the trends are moving in the right direction across the board.

The article does indeed say there are fewer people with insurance now under Obama than at the worst of times under Bush:

"the share of Americans who lack coverage is on track to drop to the lowest quarterly level it measured since 2008, before Obama took office." -- Who was president before Obama took office?

Access to insurance is not a bad thing. Whoever said it was? But, being forced to buy insurance is a bad thing. Being forced to buy a health insurance policy that covers things you don't need or want is even worse. Progressives, of course, think just the opposite. To them, being forced to buy something becomes a "personal choice." Allowing people to decide what to buy, if they decide to buy anything at all, becomes "a bad thing."

I am forced to purchase Automobile and Flood Insurance. Prior to the mandate those who didn't have insurance or access to insurance were riding on my premiums.

No more free rides. Anyone subject to needing medical care should have insurance.

That Unless provides the choice.
No such choice with health insurance under Obamacare.

You really are concerned about free rides? Then have the poor pay too!
But, you really don't care. You just like to repeat catch phrases.
