At the end of a war, some people will remain holed up in the trees, thinking they can still turn the tide of a lost cause. Increasingly, that's the best description of the anti-Obamacare dead-enders, including Congressional Republicans, who continue to depict the Affordable Care Act as a failure despite facts like these:.
--Nearly 60% of enrollees in ACA-compliant exchange health plans this year were previously uninsured--most of them for two years or more.

Liars lie. Michael Hiltzik does it for money.
60% of a pitifully few enrollees isn’t anything to scream about. The article confuses the entire population’s opinion with those few who are more than likely heavily subsidized.
How can it be working when implementation of all of its key features has been illegally delayed for political reasons?
No wonder every friend of ours who has traveled to India has come home sick with some awful stomach sicknesses that took weeks to get over.
If you don't believe, she wont be able to fly.
Millions of responsible Americans were insured before this idiotic law, and are now uninsured because of skyrocketed premiums and deductibles, and cancellations.
With the cloward/piven/obama/chaos strategy for the destruction of America, the stories are not being reported. How convenient.
This guy is a moron.
And, how many of them went to Medicaid/Medicare, just now finding that they qualified?
Yes. Many. What is so egregiously devious about all this ObamaCare is they complained there were so many millions with no insurance. They instituted a plan that robs people of choice in plans, doctors, hospitals, hamstrings hospitals and doctors in favor of bureaucracy, and ended up with a horribly convoluted machine that just makes everything worse - for everyone.
We would have been better off if we just went ahead and outright bought policies for those 25-30 million unfortunates and left the rest of the healthcare system untouched. This one near-certain fact is why I believe this was a plan of destruction, a means to a different path, and the fiscal downfall of this country.
It is power, control and the inexplicable need for some to control the thoughts and deeds of others. Evil.
This idiot wrote several books. Here is one of them:
Hiltzik, Michael A (2005). The plot against Social security : how the Bush administration is endangering our financial future (1st ed.). New York, N.Y.: HarperCollinsPublishers.
Die-hard Democrat. Junk Journalism.
90% of ALL enrollees receive subsidies or free care. Why wouldn’t they sign up? Of course you and I will go broke paying for it.
Someone should explain to the media that it is not even fully implemented and is already a train wreck
propaganda is working
That is there are nearly 2 million satisfied customers. It doesn’t include those that will die from lack of a doctor or allowable procedure or facility.
Dead Obamacare enrolees tell no tales
This person is a MORON. The only part that is working is the data mining. Moving critical medical test to every 2 yrs is not good health care. DX bone density scans for those with OP need to be yearly. Men need that PSA every year, not every 2 yrs. Restricting nerve blocks for spine pain to 3 per year is not working out well for those living in spine pain.
Many are now working PT no health ins. Make a dime to much and you Medicaid gets cut. And if you are a US MALE you don’t qualify. Illegal INVADER you do.
I don’t mean to go all Clintonian, but it really depends on the meaning of “working”.
Back in the period 1975-1985, a lot of older doctors used to say to me, “I don’t understand the HMO thing. My patients would never want that”. And, of course, that was absolutely correct.
What they did not understand was that what patients (sick people) wanted was completely irrelevant to policymakers, corporate HR departments, and individual buyers. The first two wanted cheap. The latter group had a strong majority of non-patients, mostly people who not only were not patients but fantasized never becoming patients.
“Obamacare” will never “work” if by “work” you mean, efficiently and with high quality deliver hospital, physician, and nursing services to those in need. That is impossible.
If by “work” you mean, employ tens of thousands of gender studies graduates, open a stream of taxpayer money to consultants who promise to “fix” it, and eliminate elderly whites with wrong thinking through death panels, well then, yes, it’s not only working but it can only get better.
Eat your fruits and vegetables, friends.
When I complained that someone should have realized that $17,000 a year was kinda high for a child's dental policy, I was met with dead silence.
Anyone says anything good about Obamacare in my presence, I'll end up in jail for punching them in the face.
If one is deluded enough to think communism works.
Having a health plan and getting care under Onamacare are two different things oh wait it’s the LAT.
At least then your health care will be free.
Yes the police state scare tactic is making headways... Communism... perfect but always ill expressed by ravenous Occutards looting.
“Anyone says anything good about Obamacare in my presence, I’ll end up in jail for punching them in the face.”
Then it will not only be free but will probably be exempt from the death panel exams everyone else will be subject to
Indeed. Zerocare will be successful when it will be integrated with FEMA to efficiently dig those sceptic mass graves... for our health...
He didn’t seem to notice that 3/4ths of the premium payments are being made by taxpayer funded subsidies. Essentially, we could have used the subsidy money and the pajama boy costs and bought everyone a policy over the counter. We’d have saved all the admin and promotion costs.
