Obamacare: As of February 1st only about 472,000 who had signed up were previously uninsured

These claims were already obviously false and that has been pointed out.  But something was missed in the previous critiques: how many of those enrolled were previously ensured.


According to this survey done by McKinsey, only about 10.6 percent of those who enrolled in Obamacare were previously uninsured.  But only just over half of these paid their premium.  That implies only 472,000 people who have enrolled and paid their premium.  Even if you assume all those who have enrolled will eventually pay and be insured, that will only get you to about 900,000.
