The claim that health insurance improves health outcomes is hardly ground breaking. Studying whether insurance affects health status is like wondering whether three meals a day lead to a higher muscle mass than total starvation. Baicker et al found that Medicaid enrollees fared no better in terms of health outcomes than those without insurance.
Liberals out out of step with mainstream America President Obama apologizes The broken pledge has been made worse by the utter mismanagement of the Obamacare enrollment system. People with cancelled plans can't even find out what their options are under the new law. Barack Obama's Pants are on Fire.
Irreparable damage on the national level aside, after hawking the Affordable Care Act like a snake oil salesman, barking "Step right up, if you like your insurance plan you can keep your insurance plan," some gravely ill Americans are finding out that the cure-all the merchant of "Hope and Change" peddled was pure quackery.
Now, after a panicked realization has set in, the president, doing what he does best, decided he should at least make believe that he's sorry and that he's diligently working toward rectifying the catastrophic situation he caused.
Obamacare Is Running Out of Bullets. Conservatives may complain that the apology was inadequate, since the president did not admit that he'd misled people. But this is the first time I can remember this president apologizing like this. It may be sincere.
It is also a sign that his administration is backed into a corner. It can't deny that this is happening, nor can it blame anyone else. What's left to it are expressions of regret. I disagree with the statement that Obama's apology "may be sincere.

You see the president, you think about the policy and you know it's a disaster. And the problem for the Democrats is, they are hostage to a bunch of geeks working right now late into the night trying to fix a system which is not just the glitches we talked about.
The architecture, the underlying structure of it is wrong. I'm Sorry for Obamacare Sort Of. Apologizing is all well and good, and yet Obama still finds himself in a tough position. It is one thing to apologize for the disaster that has been the technical rollout, and quite another to apologize for your own dishonesty.
Sorry your insurance got canceled! Here, let the taxpayers make it up to you. A round of applause for anyone who guessed that President Obama would deal with a rising tide of public outrage over his phony "if you like your plan, you can keep your plan" promise by throwing other people's money at the problem!
Obama Burns Media Supporters with Apology. The president's supporters in the media were first among those to take a dive under the wheels of the president's forward-moving signature policy achievement.
Media Pans Obama's "Apology".
The president's passive-voice expression of vague regret was so half-[heart]ed and self-serving that conservatives can simply sit back and let the mainstream media tee off on its inadequacy. He's not sorry for lying repeatedly in furtherance of his political goals, and he's certainly not sorry that people are losing their coverage.
His law required that outcome. His promise was an intentional lie. The lowest low of the Obama presidency. And once the Web site starts working right, they will realize they can get better plans anyway.After exploring the predominance of violence in American culture in Bowling for Columbine and taking a critical look at the September 11th attacks in Fahrenheit 9/11, activist filmmaker Michael Moore turns his attentions toward the topic of health care in the United States in this documentary that weighs the plight of the uninsured (and the insured who must deal with abuse from insurance.

(PLEASE CHECK THE BYLINE ABOVE. YES, IT’S MANDOS AGAIN.) Single-payer is proposed by many as the most ideal way to reform the payment/insurance process for health care in the US, for reasons with which I mostly agree, based on personal experience.
