More Good News for Obamacare

According to the National Journal, “a new report released by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Tuesday shows that more than 1.46 million people were determined in October to be eligible to enroll in Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program.”

The good news: “In states that are expanding Medicaid, applications jumped 15.5 percent.”

And the better news: An increase in Medicaid applications even in states that are not expanding Medicaid. “Applications to Medicaid and CHIP agencies increased 4.1 percent in October over the previous few months.”

    Yeah, but they’re a bunch of moochers. How does this affect REAL Americans?

    • Another Brad

      Yes, they are. This has nothing to do with “Obamacare”, which requires paying customers to work.

        ” This has nothing to do with “Obamacare””

        Yeah it does, since Obamacare is responsible for its existence.
