The Obama administration proudly announced that less than 3 percent of uninsured Americans have signed up for Obamacare under the "Affordable" Care Act. That's a grand total of 1.1 million of enrollees.
And that begs the question: Where the hell are the other 47 million or so of Americans that were clamoring for health insurance, who were unable to get it because of pre-existing health conditions, because the "greedy" insurance companies cared more for their bottom lines than they did long-suffering Americans?
Why have then not rushed to sign up if their need was so desperate? Could it be that there weren't 48 million in such dire need to start with? Could it be that a large percentage of the 48 million didn't want insurance?
We can only assume that they're still out there with the other six million Americans who got their individual policies cancelled because they did not meet the arbitrary standards for "quality" coverage set by the Obama administration.
The bottom line: Instead of reducing the number of Americans without health insurance, Obamacare and the Obama administration has increased the number to 53 million uninsured Americans.
