Let's first just check the math. The government tells us there are now 16 million people who signed up for health insurance coverage or were enrolled onto Medicaid via the exchanges since Obamacare went into effect. The government also tells us it believes 60 percent of those 16 million enrollees were not previously insured. So, even according to those potentially generous Obama administration estimates, only 9.6 million of the 40-50 million uninsured Americans who were supposedly desperate for health insurance bothered to actually sign up for it, even though the program was massively promoted and poor people receive this insurance at no cost to them thanks to massive taxpayer subsidies.
That's less than a third! They also refuse to sign up despite a tax penalty for those who don't have coverage.
