‘ObamaCare Checkup’: Estimated 30M Uninsured Won’t Be Helped By ObamaCare
On this evening’s “Special Report,” Bret Baier’s “ObamaCare Checkup” revealed that an estimated 30 million people won’t be helped by ObamaCare.
About 20 percent are illegal immigrants who don’t qualify for coverage. Another 80 percent are American citizens, some of whom are caught in the gap, earning too much to qualify for Medicaid but not enough to pay out of pocket for insurance.
Others are in the lowest income bracket and make too little for subsidies to help them. Authors of ObamaCare assumed that those people would be covered by a Medicaid expansion, but many states opted out, fearing the costs.
Now they will have to pay a penalty for being uninsured.
Watch the full report above.
