The [RAND] survey ... attributes the drop in the uninsured rate over the past six months mostly to gains in employer coverage. For all the predictions of employers dumping coverage for health insurance exchanges, this was a pretty surprising finding. Obamacare was actually driving millions of uninsured Americans to sign up for employer insurance."
