Number of Uninsured — Another reason for Health Reform

This chart is adapted from the CBO studies of health reform and the republican non- plan and was published in the Incidental Economist.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) is Health Reform. The GOP plan is non-existent, with results about the same as doing nothing, which is exactly what it is–a new version of “let them eat cake.” Of course the GOP non-plan and the current non-system relies on “free” cake (care) provided by ER’s which really isn’t free. Guess who ultimately pays and guess why our health care costs twice as much as elsewhere–in part.
