ACA 2015: 11.4 Million enrollment; 30 Plus Million Benefiting; House Repeal Votes Tally...$90 Million

After reading the meme, it is critical to note conservative dark money-brokers and the GOP House (Under House Speaker Boehner) have enacted 56 repeal ObamaCare votes in the the party infested 113th and 114th Congress.   

Reports are a house vote cost the US tax payers approximately $1.6 million per vote.  "The math" does not show well for a practice that Einstein would have commented: 

"Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."
Albert Einstein

The Math: $90 million USD rounded up for $89.6 million. The votes are either insanity or a blind devotion to payback to the dark-money brokers who abhor national healthcare; or both? If we view the votes in penultimate reality, the votes are GOP examples of "big government" wasted.

After two years the ACA finished the 2015 open enrollment period with 11.4 million new or renewed enrollments. 

The national uninsured rate has dropped to a historic low. 


ObamaCare facts offers a plethora of facts and data regarding ACA enrollment. The White House website, also offers good data related to enrollment. But, my personal ACA data and review preference, is Charles Gaba's ACA Signups.Net .

As of February 29, 2015, Gaba reports as such:
Confirmed 2015 QHPs: 11,634,654 as of 2/20/15 Estimated: 11.67M (8.98M via HCgov) as of 2/20/15state-level targets (revised) Estimated 2015 ACA Policy Enrollment: 31.4M(18.0M Paid QHPs (10.0M Exchange-based +8.0M OFF-Exchange), 13.4M Medicaid/CHIP)

FINAL 2014 QHPs (as of 11/14/14): 6.7M Current / 8.4M PAID / 9.6M TotalTOTAL: 6.7M Exchange QHPs, 8.0M Off-Exchange QHPs, 10.7M Medicaid/CHIP, 2.0M assorted

Continued efforts to repeal the ACA is truly insanity that verging on political malfeasance. The lede meme depicts eight ways the ACA as proved its critics wrong. Follow this link to VOX for point by point delineation of the eight GOP policy killers.
