Percentage of Uninsured in U.S. Dropped in First Year of Obama’s Health-Care Plan
The Wall Street Journal

Some 10.4% of people in the U.S. were uninsured for the whole of 2014, the Census Bureau reported Wednesday, in a significant drop from the year before that shows the gains and the limits of the sweeping federal health law’s first full year in effect.

In all, around 33 million people were without health insurance for 2014, down from 41.8 million in 2013. That marks a shift after years of steady rates on the number of Americans lacking health insurance between 2008 and 2013.
