According to a recent study that looked at census data, the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) has closed the coverage gap between rich and poor by 44% and between whites and minorities by 27%.
Not only that, but the ObamaCare is closing other coverage gaps as well. For example the gap between married and non-married closed by 45% and the gap between age groups by 44%.
In other words, under ObamaCare more people are getting covered, but especially demographics who previously did not have health coverage.
