Gallup must be in that whole big conspiracy Republicans have concocted to argue Obamacare isn't a success
. That's because, in its monthly survey of the health insurance status among Americans, it found the lowest uninsured rate
since it began tracking in January, 2008.
The uninsured rate peaked at 18.0% in the third quarter of 2013, but has consistently declined since then. This downward trend in the uninsured rate coincided with the health insurance marketplace exchanges opening in October 2013, and accelerated as the March 31 deadline to purchase health insurance coverage approached -- and passed -- for most uninsured Americans.
As Gallup found in April
, the states that embraced the law and expanded Medicaid had the greatest drop in the uninsured rate.
As the evidence just keeps on piling up that Obamacare has really, truly insured millions of people and that those numbers cannot be unskewed, expect nothing but Benghazi from Republicans for the next six months. Because that's all they got.
