Obamacare Enrollment Down a Half Million

Seems like Obamacare is uninsuring people all by itself, without the Republican bill. Like the GOP says, we’ve got a failing program on our hands.

A half million fewer people have Obamacare coverage now compared to a year ago, according to final enrollment data released Wednesday by the Trump administration,” the Washington Examiner reported.

About 12.2 million people signed up or were automatically enrolled in marketplace plans during the 2017 enrollment period, down from 12.7 million enrollees last year. The figures include people from all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

The data were released by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which operates the federal marketplace and oversees the state-run marketplaces. The year’s enrollment season ran from Nov. 1 through Jan. 31.

  1. the new GOP plan will result in less insured….because the penalty will be removed and independent folks will again make personal choices that they believe will be best for them.

    Healthcare for all: a great idea, but at what cost?


    • No one is left untreated in this country. What we are talking about here is Insurance.

      It’s a mess, but I think ,in the end it will be better. Although the Republicans should have been better prepared, no argument. The Democrats and Barack Obama are responsible for this mess. And it has not worked, as this piece and others have pointed out.

      • Exactly, Gracepc! From the start of this unholy mess known as Obamacare one wondered “why insurance?”. Why not just medical care, which was already available and a lot less expensive. Sheesh.
