According to an article in [last] Friday’s edition, the Gallup-Healthways Well Being Index as showing two to three million people gaining insurance coverage.
Why are these surveys taken seriously since they can be manipulated in several ways?
Locations can be targeted by the economy in locations which will affect results. The way questions are asked can get biased results. What questions are asked can give false results. The time of day they are asked can get dramatic results since so many people are at work from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and are covered all ready.
Let’s get some true and accurate numbers as to how many have gained insurance. How many have had their policies cancelled which forced them into the Obamacare mess. (These people did not benefit they were casualties!) How many because of their premium and high deductible can not use the insurance thus leaving them underinsured, (oh well suck it up and like it) or that’s the message sent by our government.
The way to get true and accurate members are to go to the insurance companies and get actual numbers.
About the only thing polls do accurately normally is create confusion and uncertainly.
