30 Million Will Remain Without Health Insurance Under ObamaCare

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.

Not so much:

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.

Heckuva job, Barry.

    He was just after better care for all the illegals and people who never work… at the expense of those of us who do work.. Does not matter to him if lower/middle income working people and most seniors still cannot afford care. HUGE money grab!

    Part of the plan. 30 million people paying the “tax” will bring significant revenue in.

    It’s about government control of healthcare and control of the people, not about the welfare of the public. A milestone on the way to a totalitarian government.

    can we bring back the “No New Taxes” chant from the days of yore?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1328603246 Jan Davis- Burke

    That is TRUE William! But you know…the book is actually “Dreams FROM My Father” isnt it? That gives the title a different conotation FROM….like the father’s giving him the dreams to fulfill rather than just his father’s dreams. Just a thought!

    • BEK

      Hi Jan, Yes, I believe the title is “dreams from my father” but, and this is a big but, as another poster wrote this child idealized and adored his missing father. Any teaching the father or the mother did about the father’s “dreams” were high on this kids list.

    There isn’t going to be enough money in taxes to pay for this monster and if people had sense enough to see that, we could have had this thing repealed by now!

    Somebody explain this to me. The SCOTUS ruled that Obamacare was a tax. According to the US Constitution all taxes must originate from the House of Representatives but Obamacare originated from the Senate. Therefore is seems tome that Obamacare is unconstutional. Now how am I wrong here?

    • BEK

      Hi Jim, From my point of view OBAMACARE came from the bowels of Congress (behind closed doors, with Union Official participation) with this penalty for not carrying insurance. The Supremes decided to allow the Thing- a healthcare abomination with many taxes in it. (The vote was a no-go to the whole package before Justice Roberts flipped around,dug deep into his books, and came out with the plan to change the fee into a tax!) Beautiful,no? NO. There will be more older Americans uninsured in this plan than what we have now where everyone with low income or high medical bills is eligible for Medicaid. As far as which house is responsible for taxes, I believe it is the House?

      • BEK

        Jim, I think you are RIGHT ABOUT IT BEING UNCONSTITUTIONAL. (as if our potus or his justice dept cared)

    They knew when this was being written that a lot of people were going to be exempt, Muslims and other religions who consider insider insurance as a form of gambling etc. And so they know who has to take up the slack, US!

    A. Sets up the “it hasn’t failed, we just haven’t spent enough” excuse for squeezing the middle and higher for more money “for the children”. B. it was NEVER going to work. It was a political pawn, sacrificed to point at conservatives while screaming “see, it’s their fault, they hate you”.

    Simple answer…..Part of the plan.

    Why is it liberty news reports only 316K jobs created, when at FactCheck (and many others) report….
    “— an increase of 4,267,000 jobs, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.”

    ??? that’s some difference.

    Since illegal immigrants are exempt from the individual mandate, I am curious as to how many of that 30M are illegal immigrants and how many will be US citizens falling through the cracks because their State didn’t expand Medicaid eligibility and they don’t qualify for the premium tax credit…..

    I’ve been studying every executive order and policy, statement of late and I cant sleep. All indicators point to a violent retention of power assuming a massive fraud attempt dosen’t get it done. Axelrod and Obama (and others..) are raised since birth to as devout Marxists. How many Marxists do you know in history willingly stepped down from power? If you don’t own a weapon, you may want to exercise your 2nd amendment rights now/ASAP.

    • BEK

      I’m with ya in the worry department. The extension of power that O-O-Obama has exercised is very scary. Plus, I just read on Drudge that the troops were being trained for combat against people, not armies. Then, we’ve got Hillary working with the UN to try to get through a weapons ban on citizens, and it gets more scary.

      If Romney/Ryan don’t win, or if they look like they will win, according to the polls, I think the combination of the Marxists, the UN Weapon Ban going through, and the troops, who are now trained and comfortable beating up women and children, along with men who are citizens, the “perfect storm” seems to be rising. Wow, none of us worriers will ever sleep or should ever sleep.

    Part of the plan! Also with the enormous amount of exceptions, which will grow bigger, it is intended to over extend the burden of paying for it.

    Obamacare is going to cost more for health care, raise taxes on most people, including the middle class he claims to protect, and will drive most doctors out of the business. Its not ABOUT healthcare, its about government control. Look at who is lying to us.

    I don’t get it…
    Republicans are talking about 30 million uninsured, that number is from an analysis by CBO to see the consequences of GOP run states opting out of the ACA. Should no state opt out then presto, no more 30 million uninsured…

    The other complaint of power grab by the executive branch, this power grab was done by Cheney under Bush, Obama, to his fault and detriment, has simply not given up what GOP grabbed.

    Reading all these posts just makes my head spin with all the cognitive dissonance that the GOP electorate is showing. Sure, Obama is not a great president but the alternative is just way way worse as has been significantly proven time and again.

    Just look at the GOP ticket, a mormon that created the template for Obamacare, wants gun control and is pro-choice is bringing along an Objectivist atheist that believes in trickle down economics that even the father of (von Hayek) is denouncing. I just don’t understand the rationale in the GOP community here…
