Health uninsured rate falls, yet again, under Obamacare

What goes down apparently goes down even more. The sharp plunge in the number of Americans lacking health coverage has continued, reaching a seven-year low, as Obamacare exchanges and Medicaid enroll more people.

In the second quarter of this year, 11.4 percent of adults lacked some kind of health insurance, a half-percentage point drop from the prior quarter, according to the tracking survey released Friday by the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index.
