Tune in the evening news and one of the routine stories on your favorite channel featured protesters like those in the featured image shown. Some claim they or a loved one will die without ObamaCare being preserved.
Others say that the misnamed “Affordable Care Act” program itself is dying of its own weight.
The Daily Business News recently featured a report on Warren Buffett’s stance – complete with a video – on ObamaCare, linked here. On the other side are federal data that was released this week, shown below.
Per data this week from CMS.gov – the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) – demonstrated that the number of insurers are dropping in many markets, and overall nationally.
“This is further proof that the Affordable Care Act is failing,” said CMS Administrator Seema Verma. “Insurers continue to flee the Exchanges, causing Americans to lose their choice for health insurance or lose their coverage all together. These numbers are clear: the status quo is not working. The American people deserve healthcare choices and access to quality, affordable healthcare coverage.”
Left-tilting media outlet Bloomberg produced a series of charts that visually map what is happening in your state, and the other 49 too.
“Insurers continue to flee the Exchanges, causing Americans to lose their choice for health insurance or lose their coverage all together,” Verma said. “These numbers are clear: the status quo is not working. The American people deserve healthcare choices and access to quality, affordable healthcare coverage.”
As MHProNews reported recently, deep-blue California backed away from tilting even further left in healthcare, when they cancelled their desire to turn to so-called single-payer healthcare, a.k.a., fully socialized medicine. Their reason? A $400 billion a year price-tag annually…for that one state.
ICYMI – that report, with videos and more, is linked here. Will these newly minted federal facts help Republicans in the Senate focus on fixing what they promised for years they would do if they came to power?
Reviewing the data, HotAir mused this week, “That’s just some food for thought for Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan. Right now you’re on track to do nothing, but to borrow an old line from NASA, failure truly isn’t an option anymore.” ##
