Yawn. Yet More Good Obamacare News


There’s so much good news about Obamacare, you really are getting tired of winning all the time, aren’t you? Well, here’s the latest:

This is courtesy of Gallup. It shows that after a couple of modest increases in the uninsured rate at the end of 2015, the start of a new year produced a new surge of people into Obamacare, driving the uninsured rate down to 11 percent. That’s a new record low.

As always, don’t try to compare this directly to the CDC figures for the uninsured. Gallup counts everyone over 18. CDC counts everyone under age 65. Because of this, the Gallup number is generally about one percentage point lower than CDC.
