After all the insurance cancellations, the administration’s insistence that 6 million people now have insurance because of Obamacare is a lot like firing 20 people, hiring 18 of them back and claiming that you have created 18 new jobs.
Another important test pending:
The real test will be if Obamacare can deliver insurance with a health-care plan that people actually like by November.
Narrow networks and high deductibles, anyone?
That’s one of many, many “real tests” yet to come. Others include what will happen to premiums in 2015—figures that will become public before the 2014 election.
