Obamacare (ACA or Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act), is a bunch of scandals, lies and frauds all in one. This covers the basics on those -- that Obamacare is a Republican Idea, the numbers covered by it, and so on.

Obamacare is a Republican Idea

There’s an oft repeated lie, that the Affordable Care Act (ACA / Obamacare) was modeled after a Republican plan. People that say this are either liars, DNC mouthpieces, or people completely unaware of the actual facts and are just repeating what they’ve been told by DNC mouthpieces. This debunks that tripe. more...

Numbers Covered by Obamacare
Those claiming 20 million more people are insured because of Obamacare (ACA) either don’t know what they’re talking about, or are bald-faced liars. We're around 29 million people short of the campaign promise for universal coverage. And it's well below the 20 million new people covered that the fools and frauds like to claim. The facts: about 2.8M were covered because of Obamacare, and another 4-6M because of medicaid expansion, at a cost of about $20K per new person covered.


Cluster Fuck

The Democrats will lie (duh!) and tell you things were great before the evil Republicans torpedo'd the ACA. The truth is that the CBO are idiots, have never gotten anything right, and according to the promises (the projections on what success would look like) the ACA didn't come close, and was headed the wrong way, long before the Republicans did anything to it.


I don't care if people like/hate ACA. I do care about dishonesty in selling it. If you look at CBO promises, versus actual, we find that the CBO is a tool for the dishonest to proselytize to the gullible. They said we'd have 25 million paid suscribers (to offset all the subsidized ones), and even then it was going to cost us $2T/decade in deficit spending. The actual is far worse.
