Here’s an interesting little factoid:
The individual mandate had the least effect on those it was supposed to encourage to gain coverage—the uninsured. McKinsey & Co. surveys found that a little over one-quarter of people signing up for coverage last month were previously uninsured. Goldman Sachs analysts estimate that about one million uninsured Americans will sign up for the ObamaCare exchanges before open enrollment ends. For perspective, that’s about 2% of the 48 million uninsured.
That sounds like an awful lot of energy, time, and money expended to insure .3% of the people. Do you think the additional costs will be linear or geometric to insure the reamining 16%?
