Here's the number of people who've lost their coverage due to the ACA.

The GOP has been reiterating 5 million Americans will lose their healthcare coverage thanks to Obamacare, based on a figure of 4.7 million.

Turns out, the actual number is 10,000 in 18 counties. In a nation of 300 million+ and over 3,000 counties.

Of the 4.7 million the GOP has claimed will lose coverage, half can renew their 2013 plans thanks to an adjustment made by the Obama administration, another 1.5 million have access to tax credits and Medicaid, and everybody else will have access to an affordable plan where they live -- except for 10,000 people.

That's not good information for those 10,000 people, and adjustments should be made to provide some options for those people. And all behemoths like the ACA have some collateral damage, but again, something should be done to provide these folks options.

But a plan designed to insure 30 million people over ten years and bend the cost curve of health coverage has a much smaller imprint (about 500 times smaller) than many of the detractors of the ACA.

10,000. Those are the people whose cancellation notices truly left them in the cold under the ACA. 99% otherwise have ample options.

That's a different topic, actually.

I'm referring to people losing coverage. Those who will end up paying more for compliant plans is a part of the bill. That's a part of making health coverage for 300 million people more accessible.

Fortunately, early signs indicate that the cost curve will bend, making future increases in coverage less dramatic for everyone.

I doubt that it is for them, Direckshun, considering what they've been sold.

Do you accept the minimum standards set forth under Obamacare? You agree with them?

I could do this all day. Theoretically.

"Not ACA-compliant." Charming. Wait, that sounds akin to a means test, doesn't it? I thought you hated and didn't agree with means tests?

They lost their existing plans, yes. But virtually all of them will retain coverage through affordable options to replace their existing plans.
