Articles heralding the success of Obamacare removing nearly 25 percent from the uninsured category fail to tell the whole story. If you Google the Gallup report on Obamacare, you are immediately impressed by the detailed information provided.

However, if you read far enough there is a section that states no numbers are available as to how many of these added insured came through Medicaid and other subsidized programs. Once again, the government (that’s us, folks) is probably paying for many of these newly insured. When it is all over, we will have another bureaucracy running an inefficient program that will cost us more than it is worth.
