Record 16.3 million sought health insurance through Obamacare

This year, more than 16 million people sought health care coverage through the exchange set up thanks to the Affordable Care Act (known as Obamacare to credit the creator in a creative bit of rebranding), a record number of users, ABC News reports.

While three million people set up new accounts on the exchanges this year, the number of Americans who do not have health insurance fell to 8% last year, an all-time low.  When the healthcare exchanges were set up ten years ago, 15.7% of Americans weren’t covered.

The record usage comes despite Republican efforts to dismantle the system, which the GOP hates because Obama supported it even though it’s largely the same program touted by the conservative Heritage Foundation two decades before.  Failed politician and human Donald Trump vowed that he would dismantle the ACA and present a plan that would cover more people for more things for less money; he first made that pledge in 2015, but he has yet to present a comprehensive health care plan that was anything more than ramblings at a cult rally.
