Big drops seen in number of kids without health insurance since Obamacare passed

Big drops seen in number of kids without health insurance since Obamacare passed
- The kids are alright — or at least doing a lot better — under Obamacare.
A leading children's welfare group on Tuesday urged state and federal policymakers to continue investing in programs that improve kids health, including Obamacare, whose expansion led to a sharp decrease in the number of kids without health insurance from 2010 through 2015.
In 2010, about 8 percent of the children in the United States, or 5.9 million kids, lacked health insurance, the Annie E. Casey Foundation's new Kids Count data book says.
But over the next five years, as Obamacare was fully implemented, there was more than a 37 percent reduction in the number of children without insurance.
