Saved or Created . . .

HHS and the Obama administration are taking credit for saving or creating health insurance coverage for 2.5 million adult children . . . a paradoxical term at best, but I digress.

Administration analysts found that nearly 36 percent of Americans age 19-25 were uninsured in the third calendar quarter of 2010, before the law's provision took effect. That's over 10.5 million people.

By the second calendar quarter of 2011, the uninsured dropped to a little over 27 percent, or about 8 million.

The difference is nearly 2.5 million more young adults getting coverage.

Yeah, I suppose.

These are the same folks that say unemployment compensation drives the economy and saves or creates jobs.
