    I'm really glad you posted this chart.  I've seen it before, and I have to admit I'm confused.

    Once you adjust for the non-zero axis, you'll see the % has dropped one percent since 2008.  This doesn't seem correct to me.  I believe many more folks have gotten coverage due to the ACA, but this chart doesn't really show that.

    Maybe I'm not reading it correctly?

      is when Gallup started surveying for insurance status. So they only have 6 years of data.

      What this is really reflecting is the extent of the disaster of the great recession. And that a the uninsured rate has fallen a lot since the height of the recession, but more since the law was implemented.
