PPACA: A lesson In Diminishing Returns

obamacare-33Now let this sink in. Lets look at the impact of the ACA based on the governments own numbers as it relates to an increasing the number of insured. The insured as a percent of the non-elderly population is estimated at 89% in 2015. By end of 2025, estimates have it topping out at 92%. So after a budget busting 10+ years and over a trillion dollars the ACA has only increased the insured percentage from 89 to 92%. Only in government would that be called a success!
