Good Monday Morning.

Let's get this started by giving huge props to Velveeta for her Sunday Blog. Read it, Love it, share it!

Since we are going back in time, let's go further back - 5 years ago to be very specific. As Vice President Biden whispered… It's a big F*ckin' Deal.

If you’d told me five years ago that on March 23, 2015, the Affordable Care Act would exceed expectations on every possible metric, including reducing the nation’s uninsured rate by a third, I’d say “Obamacare” would look like a great success. And fortunately for the country, that’s exactly what’s happened.

Failed Prediction #1: Americans won’t enroll in the ACA

Failed Prediction #2: The ACA won’t meet its enrollment goals

Failed Prediction #3: Insurers will want no part of the ACA system

Failed Prediction #4: The economy will suffer terribly because of ‘Obamacare’

Failed Prediction #5: Even if Americans enrolled, they won’t pay their premiums

Failed Prediction #6: Even if people pay their premiums, the flawed ACA structure will send premiums soaring

Failed Prediction #7: The ACA won’t reduce the uninsured rate because it will only help those who already have coverage

Failed Prediction #8: The ACA will lead to a “net loss” on overall coverage

Failed Prediction #9: The ACA will lead to higher deficits and a weaker fiscal footing for the nation

Failed Prediction #10: Americans will end up hating the coverage they receive through the ACA
Explanations are at the link.

So here we are five years later, and the ACA is more successful that even its supporters predicted. The economy is improving and things are getting better.

So of course, it means that this man has announced he wants to be President of the United States of America.

Let the silly season begin.
