According to the New England Journal of Medicine, 20 million additional people have been covered by Obamacare.
They reached the 20 million total this way: 1 million adults under age 26 enrolled in their parents’ plan; 8 million enrolled in private coverage through the insurance marketplaces; 5 million enrolled in private coverage directly through their insurer; 6 million enrolled in Medicaid.
That number would be quite higher if every state was required to expand Medicaid.
Nearly 6 million people are currently being denied coverage by their governors and state legislatures who refuse to expand Medicaid.
As we all know, there is no greater threat to our way of life, capitalism, and apple pie than healthcare for the poor. Well, except maybe busloads of immigrant children.
