Is ACA doing more harm than good?

I wonder when, if ever, Obamacare will cross the “tipping point.” The tipping point is when the number of previously uninsured Americans who get health coverage because of Obamacare will exceed, even by one, the number of currently insured Americans who are losing theirs.

The advocates for Obamacare point out that getting coverage for millions of uninsured Americans is worth the loss of coverage being experienced by a “very small minority.” At the current point, though, it seems as if the millions losing their coverage greatly outnumber the few who are gaining it — and this is without counting the projected tens of millions more in danger of being added to the newly uninsured list. The tipping point appears to be very far away, at best, and never to be reached, at worst. And at what cost? To our freedom? To our wallet?
