We still have a serious problem with the uninsured

Today’s report by the Congressional Budget Office estimates that over the next decade the Affordable Care Act will reduce the number of uninsured Americans by 25 million, compared to what would have happened otherwise. We know that initially the law increased the number of people who are uninsured due to unintended consequences of the law’s implementation but eventually some of those will find coverage. But the report says that there will still be 31 million people without coverage ten years after the law was implemented. That means that the law had some effect but did not solve the problem of uninsured Americans. Let’s be clear that 31 million without health insurance is still a serious problem for the United States that remains unaddresed.
