Via Weekly Standard:

On Monday, CNBC reported on a new survey that found that two-thirds of Americans currently without health insurance don’t know if they will purchase coverage by the deadline, the first day of 2014.  The survey was released by, a company that offers comparison shopping for insurance, similar to the “marketplaces” envisioned by Obamacare.  The results of the survey surprised Laura Adams, senior insurance analyst at the company […]

However, for those who have kept up with Congressional Budget Office (CBO) projections on the implementation and progress of Obamacare over the next decade, the results will not be all that surprising.  On the contrary, the most recent report issued by the CBO in May appears pessimistic by comparison. Of the 55 million “Uninsured Nonelderly People” the report lists for 2013, only 11 million, or 20 percent, are projected to obtain insurance during 2014; the number of uninsured falls only to 44 million next year according to the CBO.  This leaves a full 80 percent uninsured, significantly more than the 67 percent found by the survey.

In fact, the CBO projects that under Obamacare over the next decade, the number of uninsured will never fall below 30 million. Here are the year-by-year projections from the report:

2013 – 55,000,000
2014 – 44,000,000
2015 – 37,000,000
2016 – 31,000,000
2017 – 30,000,000
2018 – 30,000,000
2019 – 30,000,000
2020 – 30,000,000
2021 – 31,000,000
2022 – 31,000,000
2023 – 31,000,000
