Uninsured rate drops 4.2% under “Obamacare”

by Isaiah Webster III


The U.S. Congress, now fully controlled by the Republican Party, began its 114th session yesterday. And despite the historic success of the Affordable Care Act, the majority will begin anew with attempts to gut, and even repeal the law. Indisputable facts are the best weapons against Republican attempts to claim that the ACA isn’t working as intended. Gallup reports that the uninsured rate is down 4.2% since the president signed the ACA into law. And this success is happening despite the fact that many conservative states are still refusing to expand Medicaid.
