The White House is touting the milestone of one million people enrolling for health care coverage. When the president was stumping for the PPACA, the claim was 30 million people were uninsured. So less than 4 percent of uninsured Americans have signed up for health care coverage by the extended deadline? What is the cause for the celebration spin?
For clarification, people are not signing up for affordable care, they are enrolling in health insurance plans that will require relatively low cost premiums, but significant out-of-pocket costs, high co-insurance payments, and high deductibles. Wait until the newly insured American public begins to use these new “market place exchange” plans and they see how much their “affordable care” will ultimately cost.
