Let’s do the Obamacare math

The major premise behind Obamacare (at least as sold to the American public) was that some 40 million Americans did not have health insurance (notice I didn’t say health care), and something needed to be done to fix that situation.  That was some three and a half years ago.  Flash forward to today.

In addition to the original 40 million without insurance, we have added another 5 million Americans who have lost their private health insurance because of Obamacare.  And that number will continue to grow as the year wears on, in spite of the President’s claimed “fix” announced yesterday.

However, we did learn on  Wednesday that approximately 106,000 people have enrolled in Obamacare on both the various states’ and the federal exchanges.

I may not be a math wiz, but it would appear to me that we are losing ground.

    Perhaps Obama is going to nationalize the health insurance companies.

    Hey, that’s what other socialist countries do to solve otherwise intractable problems that get in the way of statist goals.
