    And most of the new ones I'll bet haven't paid...

    A devastating new McKinsey & Co. report finds that Obamacare's purported purpose – providing coverage for the previously uninsured – has failed.

    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Govern...-of-Obamacare-Enrollees-Already-Had-Insurance

    The report concludes that 74% of Obamacare enrollees at the end of the first open enrollment period already had insurance; just 26% reported being previously uninsured. Of those who were previously uninsured, the figure drops to only 22% when considered alongside whether the individual has activated his plan by paying his first month's premium.

    According to the Associated Press, at least 4.7 million Americans had their health insurance plans canceled due to Obamacare. Many of those individuals simply went through the Obamacare exchanges to buy policies to replace the ones President Barack Obama's healthcare program outlawed.

    The McKinsey & Co. study also revealed that nearly half (48%) of individuals who said they do not plan to enroll in 2015 were "unaware of the penalty for lack of coverage." The so-called "individual mandate" imposes graduated penalties on individuals who choose not to purchase care. Even after respondents were informed of the penalty, only 29% of those currently uninsured said they plan to enroll in 2015.

    This is not a major revelation. My fiance did exactly that.

    So, in summary, we have disrupted 1/6 of the U.S. economy under the pretense of making available affordable health insurance to 30 million uninsured americans of which, so far, we know that at most 1.75 million have taken advantage of. This, of course, does not include those who signed up for Medicare, an entitlement they were already entitled to, just didn't sign up for.

    I love the name Affordable Care Act. How Orwellian. The name was manufactured by the Ministry of Truth. Double plus ungood.

    And those who bought the highly subsidized bronze, silver and gold Obamacare exchange plans are now having to find a doc who will accept it and come up with the cash to meet their deductable when they do need treatment. And they are pissed.
