Uninsured Rate Falls to Record Low


insuranceThe uninsured rate for American adults has fallen to its lowest level since the beginning of 2008, according to a Gallup survey released today.

The 13.4 percent who lack health insurance is down from a peak of 18 percent in late 2013. Uninsurance rates among African-Americans, Hispanics, and the poor experienced the steepest decreases. (The latter two of those groups still had uninsured rates higher than the national average, with a third of Hispanics lacking insurance.)

The uninsured rate for ages 18 to 25 fell 4.5 percent, suggesting they have been enrolling in plans through the Affordable Care Act just as the White House hoped. Read more at Gallup.

    You sound like the “unskewed polls” idiot who deluded the Republicans into thinking that they were going to elect Romney. In fact, the results were almost exactly what the major polling firms predicted (Gallup was actually biased a bit towards the Republicans) and only two states were close: Florida, carried by Obama, and North Carolina, carried by Romney.
