More Americans Have Health Coverage

Last week, Gallup reported that the rate of uninsured Americans has sunk to 12.9 percent. According to the research firm, "the uninsured rate has dropped 4.2 percentage points since the Affordable Care Act's requirement for Americans to have health insurance went into effect one year ago." During last summer's inaugural Spotlight Health, Thomas A. Scully (former Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services administrator), Peter R. Orszag (former director of the Office of Management and Budget), and T.R. Reid (journalist and filmmaker of U.S. Healthcare: The Good News) discussed the merits and issues surrounding Obama Care. Watch this short video where, as if writing a report card, each gives ACA a letter grade.
