One State Had More People Lose Health Insurance Than Sign Up For Obamacare

The Affordable Care Act was created to help those without insurance get the coverage that they need. Could it be, though, that it has actually created more people without insurance?

In the state of Maryland, 60,000 people signed up for Obamacare, while 73,000 lost their current coverage because their insurance companies have shut down due to the government takeover. The state now has less of it’s members covered by insurance than it did before the Affordable Care Act came into being.

Did this government act cause more problems than solutions? This certainly wouldn’t have been the plan of those who created it, but it just may be the case, especially in states like Maryland.

More people in the state of Maryland now have to find their own new insurance and pay for it’s cost, than did before the government takeover. Is this a price worth paying in order to put Obamacare into effect?

I wonder how many of those 73,000 people will vote for a Democrat this year?

These are the kind of hard cold facts that during any candidate debates and interviews, the democrats running need to get hit with. Even on a local level such as county executive. This is the kind of thing that directly affects consumer confidence and when that's low every other sector including the economy suffers.

The purpose of ACA is to enrich the Health Insurance Companies.

It has worked out very well.

It is a success.

Way to go OweMalley & OweBrown!!

To improve on efficiency, why not send their Rain Tax bill in the same envelope as their insurance cancellation?
