A new report (pdf) released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, shows that the Affordable Care Act has helped decreased by more than one-third the number of uninsured Americans under age 65, something noted in an earlier CDC report, but more detailed figures put the percentage of uninsured closer to single digits for the first time.

No, Obamacare isn’t killing full-time jobs, new evidence shows

An article in today's Washington Post, says that despite GOP fears that employers would reduce worker's hours to avoid having to provide healthcare benefits, this hasn't happened. Analysts at ADP studied the payrolls of about 75,000 U.S. firms and organizations. They expected that as businesses prepared for the mandate to take effect, they would adjust their employees' schedules, limiting them to no more than 30 hours a week. Yet ADP found no overall change in employees' weekly schedules between 2013 and last year.

"There's been a lot of talk about the ACA reducing the number of jobs, or killing some jobs, and we simply don't see the evidence of that in the data that we've been able to examine up to 2014."
