    Once all of the numbers settle from this first round, sometime next month, the "How many haven't paid", "How few are young?", etc. Republican distraction points will all sink.

    Of course the comparatively small ~1 million who lost insurance, mentioned in this New Republic article, is still not good. But how many typically drop insurance over 2 quarters? And how many of this number are right wing "conscientious objectors" (shooting themselves in the foot if they get sick... although perhaps now emboldened that they can purchase insurance, after the fact, if they do)?
