    "Republicans, still flailing in their efforts to come up with their own healthcare plan, are also going to be flailing when it comes to finding a coherent argument for getting rid of Obamacare in the first place.

    Their arguments against the law keep being shot down by the reality of its successes.

    Here's another success: There are 9.5 million fewer uninsured people now, according to a new Commonwealth Fund study.



    'According to the survey, the proportion of working-aged adults without insurance dropped from 20 percent in the late summer of 2013 to 15 percent in the late spring of 2014, a period that corresponds roughly to the beginning and end of open enrollment in the Affordable Care Act's marketplaces.

    To put that in more concrete terms, there are still a lot of Americans walking around without health insurance today.

    But there are about 9.5 million fewer of them than there were last fall, almost certainly because so many people have enrolled in the newly expanded Medicaid program or purchased subsidized insurance through the Obamacare marketplaces.'"* The Young Turks hosts Ana Kasparian and Ben Mankiewicz (Turner Classic Movies) break it down.
