Health Insurance Cause/Effect FooFoo Dust

Here we see the spinners hard at work.

Now, Gallup reports that from the first quarter of 2010 (when Obama signed Obamacare into law) to the third quarter of this year, 2 percent of American adults lost their employer sponsored health insurance. In other words, about 4.5 million Americans lost their employer-sponsored insurance over a span of just 18 months.

The Weekly Standard wants you to believe that this is due to ObozoCare. 

In other words, the layoffs have nothing to do with it.  Nor the surge in part-time (no bennies) employment.


How-some-ever, there's more "spin" in the article--this showing the (D) pixie-dust colors:

This is not what the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) had predicted would happen. Rather, the CBO had predicted that Obamacare would increase the number of people with employer-sponsored insurance by now.  It had predicted that, under Obamacare, 6 million more Americans would have employer-sponsored insurance in 2011 than in 2010...

Princess Nancy and Dirtball Harry controlled CBO, remember?

The CBO prediction was fantasy then.  Now?  It's a much more expensive fantasy.
