The true measure of Obamacare isn’t how many people have enrolled in it, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) declared on April 1, 2014 at a press event.
Fielding questions on Obamacare the day after enrollment closed, Pelosi said the two most important measures of a health care law are how many more people have access to health care insurance and how much they have to pay for it.
Reporter: “Madam Leader, isn’t the real measure of success not the raw number who signed up, but how many of those who signed up were not insured before?”
Pelosi: “No. The measure is two-fold. The measure is how many more people have access to health care – quality, affordable, health care and insurance – than who didn’t before.
