MADISON β€” New data shows nearly 200,000 Wisconsin residents gained some form of health insurance between 2013 and 2015.

The U.S. Census Bureau released figures on Tuesday that show about the number of uninsured people in the state dropped 3.7 percent during those years, from 518,000 in 2013 to 323,000 people in 2015.

The number of uninsured people nationally dropped 5.1 percent between 2013 and 2015, from 45.1 million to 29.7 million.

The census bureau noted that many provisions of President Barack Obama’s health care law went into effect between 2013 and 2015.

    I think many of those were as a result of extending coverage from the parent’s plan to those under the age of 26 regardless if they’re in school, working, or have or can get their own coverage. Those would be the ‘healthiest’ who often weren’t buying insurance if they didn’t have it. Now the working pool gets to pay for them……..Thanks Obama – you big dumba$$!
