One of the selling point of the White House Health Care Tax, aka Obamacare, is how comprehensive it is. Oh, it will cover all Americans.
Currently, accoriding to CBO, there are 53 million uninsured persons in the United States, including uninsured illegal aliens. The CBO estimates that in 2022–8 years after the Affordable Care Act has been fully implemented–30 million people will remain uninsured.
Moreover, under Obamacare, 8 percent of legal U.S. residents will remain without health insurance in 2022, according to CBO.
The report was done to assess the fiscal impact of the Supreme Court June Obamacare decision.
“CBO and JCT [Joint Committee on Taxation] now estimate that the ACA, in comparison with prior law before the enactment of the ACA, will reduce the number of nonelderly people without health insurance coverage by 14 million in 2014 and by 29 million or 30 million in the latter part of the coming decade, leaving 30 million nonelderly residents uninsured by the end of the period,”the report said.
“Before the Supreme Court’s decision, the latter number had been 27 million,” states the report.
As a result of the Supreme Court decision, states are no longer obligated under Obamacare to expand eligibility for their Medicaid programs.
Meanwhile, the cost of health care is still expected to rise, the cost of products and services rises because of the law and it’s likely the doctor shortage in America will worsen because of ObamaCare.
And people will still be without health insurance.
