An unreleased study by the Rand Corporation reportedly reveals that only “about one-third” of the 7.04 million Obamacare enrollees the White House is claiming were people who were previously uninsured.
The Los Angeles Times reported on the study and is the only news outlet so far that has seen the secret Rand study.
Moreover, a McKinsey & Co. study says that just 53% of the previously uninsured have paid their first premium and activated their coverage. That would mean that just 1.2 million of those the White House calls “enrollees” are actually paying Obamacare customers who were previously uninsured.
Obamacare’s purported purpose was to provide coverage for America’s 48.6 million uninsured people. Based on the Rand study, Obamacare has provided private insurance for only 2.5% of America’s uninsured.
The highly unpopular Obamacare program has Democratic strategists and candidates scrambling for cover. One prominent Democratic pollster told Politico that the best thing Democrats can do is change the subject.
“The less we’re talking about Obamacare, the better off we are,” said the pollster.
The latest Associated Press poll shows Obamacare has hit an all-time low approval rating of just 26%.
