Yep. Obamacare just keeps on not failing.
The new data comes from the National Health Interview Survey, which the CDC and the Census Bureau have been conducting for more than 50 years. The questions have changed over the years, but the answers were always the same: More than 10% of respondents, and sometimes as many as 18% of Americans, have reported that they’ve been uninsured. […]
And as predicted a few months ago, our national uninsured rate will only keep falling as access to health insurance keeps going up. CDC’s data is a good barometer of that momentum. The agency releases new numbers every quarter, and each iteration has shown a steady decline in the uninsured rate, from 12.2% a year ago, to 9.2% earlier this year, and now to 9.0% as of June.
That looks a little like Jeb! Bush’s poll numbers, when you
it. Only in a good way:
