What Obamacare has wrought

If you are paying attention, there’s been pretty much a steady drumbeat of good news on Obamacare.  No, the program is not perfect, but it has lived up to its promises quite well– in some areas even better than expected.  And let’s not forget that Republicans predicted that it would literally (yes, the real use of the word) doom the economy.  Of course, consistent, but modest improvement in the health care situation does not get a lot of big time news stories.  Anyway, John F. was nice enough to sum it all up in a recent FB status:

Other than dramatically improving the rates of people without access to health care, the lowest increase in health care spending in 50 years, the numbers of insurers who increasingly want to participate in the exchange, the high customer satisfaction rates, the reduction in medical errors, the lives saved of tens of thousands of people who otherwise would have died or gone bankrupt, and the enrollment of 11.4 million Americans, millions of which are gaining access to cost effective, stable, and quality health care for the first time in their lives, Obamacare is an utter disaster, destroying our economy, just as predicted.
