Letter: Wanted more from Obamacare story

April 29, 2014 

The Herald recently ran an article by The Associated Press about officials lauding the success of Obamacare in Washington state: 600,000 enrollees.

Nothing was said about the number of people forced to lose their previous health care programs. Why the omission? How many of the 600,000 were previously insured? What are their comparative costs?
