CDC: 28M Americans Uninsured Now Compared To 49M Before ObamaCare




Some 8.8 percent of the U.S. population, or about 28 million Americans, were uninsured from January through March, about 500,000 less than the same period last year, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

That compares to 48.6 million uninsured before ObamaCare was passed in 2010.

Of those uninsured for the first three months of the year, 5.3 percent were children age 17 and younger.

The report found that adults aged 24-34 were almost twice as likely as adults aged 45-64 to lack health insurance coverage.
