Number of Americans without health insurance rises for 1st time in a decade
The Census Bureau also said household income rose last year at its slowest pace in four years.

"WASHINGTON — The number of Americans without health insurance edged up in 2018 — the first evidence from the government that coverage gains from President Barack Obama's health care plan might be eroding under President Donald Trump."
"The data suggest that the economic expansion, now the longest on record at more than 10 years, is still struggling to provide widespread benefits to the U.S. population. Solid gains in household incomes in the past four years have returned the median only to where it was two decades ago. And despite strong growth last year in the number of Americans working full time and year-round, the number of people with private health insurance remained flat."
"Trump spent most of his first year in office unsuccessfully trying to get a Republican Congress to repeal the Affordable Care Act. He is now asking a federal appeals court to overturn it as unconstitutional. The president also slashed the program's sign-up season ad budget and scaled back funding to help people navigate the enrollment process. Trump also removed a subsidy for insurers, thereby triggering a jump in premiums."

What a record. What a record for Trump to do that to the American people so that they have to pay higher premiums. And that, despite the fact that there are even more Americans uninsured now which is not good. But under Trump one can expect to see these things happen. Instead of trying to round out the ACA and work with it for the good of the people his aim is to cut and destroy it altogether. And what is left in terms of healthcare for Americans if that happens? Nothing except perhaps Medicare and Medicaid for those who qualify besides very expensive private health insurance. But he ain't worried. After all, he has the best health insurance anyone can get.

How did Obama and the democrats tell us it still needed work when they passed it?

Oh yeah, they didn't, they claimed it was perfect.

It was failing miserably before Trump was even elected.

All he is doing is putting a dying dog to sleep.

Obamacare will be the best thing ever! A year later...we need to work on fixing Obamacare.

What a joke.

The truth is, the right wing does not care about anyone else having health insurance but themselves, the rest of the country can die in the street like dogs as far as they are concerned, they would not pick up a dying person off the sidewalk and take them to an emergency room.
Sad isn't it? Very sad.

Millions of Americans lost their Health Insurance under Obamacare.

That was less than 10 years ago.

More fake news from NBC, home of Docugate and the edited George Zimmerman 911 tapes.
