Thanks to Obamacare, The Number of Uninsured Drops.

As the uninsured rate continues to drop, Republican outrage surges into overdrive. Their latest number is to rehash Benghazi, most people are too smart for this tactic, however. There are  a number of people out there not smart enough, shouting Benghazi through their fat, saturated arteries. Now, Republicans hate any good news about the Affordable Care Act, especially news that it is working. Well, unfortunately, for them, that is exactly what the most last news reveals.
Reasonable people would be elated that folks finally have health care, some for the first time. However, Republicans not so much, that is to say they would rather people not be covered under Obamacare. 

Hear them tell it and they would have you insured just not under Obamacare. However, we all know that is the only way to have folk's insurance. The truth is Republicans do not care about you. And to think otherwise is trickery, so refrain obtaining a convincing mentality within regards to excusing their lack of empathy because it is inexcusable.
Conservatives do not meet the requirements they once did, what I mean is they have strayed from their heart to care for the less fortunate and help folks needing a hand up, and not a handout. I take that back, they never did care about the poor. Republicans block everything from, as previously mentioned, healthcare food aid to struggling mothers, veteran's benefits, early education and property redevelopment. Now, we all know, these programs predominately help low income folks; the 
Inner' cities, according to Paul Ryan, where the black men do not want to work.

"The nation’s uninsured rate after Obamacare's first enrollment has dropped to the lowest point in at least six years, according to a new Gallup poll.
The 13.4 percent uninsured rate among adults – the lowest since Gallup starting tracking the number in January 2008 – is down from 17.1 percent near the end of 2013 and 15.6 percent at the end of this year’s first quarter. The uninsured rate fell 2.2 percent between April and the first quarter of 2014, suggesting that Obamacare's late enrollment surge was driven by people who previously lacked coverage." (1).

"Some other Gallup findings seem to support what the Obama administration and other surveys have reported. The uninsured rate among the all-important young adult demographic fell, but no faster than the rate for other groups. Low-income adults, who may qualify for expanded Medicaid programs or the most generous subsidies through ACA exchanges, saw larger decreases in the uninsured rate than higher-earning groups." (1).

One can only hope Republicans will begin to care about their constituents, after all, most of their constituents fall into the impoverished states.
