President Barack Obama is to be congratulated on the 7.1 million people who now have health care ("Looking beyond Md.'s flawed Obamacare website," April 1).
But according to the U.S. Census Bureau, in 2012 there were 48 million uninsured people in the U.S.
So please check my math: Even if we accept that 7.1 million people signed up under Obamacare, that still leaves 40.9 million people uninsured.
After untold billions of dollars, the Affordable Care Act still missed the mark.
