Gallup survey suggests sign-ups under ObamaCare not as high as White House says

A major new Gallup survey suggests the ObamaCare sign-up numbers are not as soaring as the White House claims.

The massive survey, released on Monday, shows the number of uninsured indeed has fallen to its lowest level in years, likely thanks to the Affordable Care Act. The Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index measured the share of adults without health insurance. That shrank from 17.1 percent at the end of last year to 15.6 percent for the first three months of 2014.

The decline of 1.5 percentage points would translate roughly to more than 3.5 million people gaining coverage.

But the numbers, released a week after the close of the health law’s first enrollment season, also suggest a far more modest impact on coverage than statistics cited by the Obama administration.

The administration says 7.1 million have signed up for subsidized private plans through new insurance markets, while 3 million previously uninsured people gained coverage through the law’s Medicaid expansion.

    And this is a surprise?? this isn’t rocket science when 6.2 mill lost their insurance, IT’S A SERIAL LIAR AND MOST PEOPLE ARE IGNORANT!!

    Who ever believed the lying, lier this President can not tell the truth even when it is beneficial to do so.

    The majority of sign-ups are for the expanded medicaid (no premiums) and the highly subsidized (low earners) . The program will fail unless the young and healthy, who will pay very high premiums, sign up. More people have lost their insurance due to this boondoggle than they can sign up during 2014. Obama continues to lie like a rug.

    Wait until they find out that the fine for not signing up doubles next year and even more the year after that. Of course there is no way of knowing what the premiums will be next year, but you can bet the farm that they will go up.

      They can go through the roof, am I suppose to be scared? Am I suppose to give up my rights I got for being born? Am I suppose to support the “American Communism Act” because some little commie raghead told me to? NO, Anybody with any integrity would not cower to such a FK UP bunch of communists, sorry not me and not in my country,I hope they make a law that says pay or go to jail, I would love to be the first in their jail!!! come take all my stuff, SO WHAT!!! I cancelled my ins. as soon as this was passed and will no longer have ins. I’m sick of the scared spineless cowards that allow this country to go the third world socialist/communist way. I will not be a part of it!!! Their were many things that could have been done to actually help, none of which were in this plan because it’s not a plan for health ins.
