It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these, so I have to assume that Obamacare’s just hunky-dory now. Well, except for:
- Newly insured individuals visit emergency rooms more often than they did while uninsured. Considering that the cost per visit for these individuals goes down, why the shock?
- Colorado Senator Mark Udall tried to get state officials to lie about how many people lost their coverage due to Obamacare.
- Enrollment numbers are way below where they need to be. And of those who have enrolled, the majority (possibly a vast majority) already had insurance beforehand. I consider this a good thing: it means that the cancer has not metastasized into a small group of people who derive major benefits versus a widespread net of losses for others.
- And of the people who have signed up, most of them tend to be older and more expensive.
- Another Obamacare delay. Maybe they should just delay the whole bill, say, for a century. They should be able to get the kinks worked out by then.
