This article has some decently solid numbers on how many people are now without insurance BECAUSE of the "Affordable" Care Act.
The numbers of uninsured I remember from before the ass-rape of a law was passed was something around 42-47 million. Now? It's that many PLUS an extra 900,000 in California; 330,000 in Florida; 130,000 in Kentucky; 140,000 in Minnesota; and 400,000 in Georgia. Unless my math is wrong, that adds 1.9 million more to the ranks of the uninsured. And that's only in the states reported in the story.
If this holds true for the whole nation, I'd estimate that they've destroyed the insurance for fifteen or twenty million people. Because Florida? Had around 30,000 people whose plans were grandfathered in.
I've seen numbers that there are roughly 14 million self-insured, and half of that number (at best figure) will have grandfathered plans. I think ours is one of the grandfathered plans, but they've been tinkering with the rules to reduce the number of plans qualifying for grandfathered status.
What I' expecting is to start seeing stories that insurance companies are starting to go bankrupt because of the onerous requirements that they're required to spend, and the limits on the amount of money they can take in that doesn't go directly back out for medical care for their customers.
Especially once we consider all the extra people they'll have to hire to make sure they're still in compliance with the ever-changing goalposts of the "Affordable" Care Act.
