Only 4% of Previously Uninsured Sign up for Healthcare Insurance

Do you remember being told that the number one main reason for the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was to provide healthcare coverage for uninsured Americans? According to the New York Times, as of September 2013 the number of uninsured Americans was 48 million or 15.4% of the population.

No matter how you look at it, Obamacare is far from reaching its main goal. To begin with, Obama is now claiming that the number of enrollees in Obamacare has reached 8 million. However, we know that those are inflated and inaccurate figures as it does not take into account the number of people that did not complete their enrollment for one reason or another and it does not take into account the number of people that have yet to make their first payment.

But let’s give Obama the benefit of the doubt and say there really are 8 million people who signed up for Obamacare. If all of them were previously uninsured, that’s only 16.7% of the previously uninsured that now have insurance.
