Here’s a headline that tells you everything you need to know about the Affordable Care Act. It comes to us courtesy of the non-partisan RAND Corporation:
Survey Estimates Net Gain of 9.3 Million American Adults with Health Insurance.
Millions of Americans now have the fundamental peace-of-mind that comes from knowing they have at least minimal health insurance. That is a huge, game-changing improvement over the previous situation.
The GOP, of course, told us that Obamacare would be the ruination of our great land. That’s why the GOP-dominated House voted more than 50 times to repeal it. (Talk about insanity!) But as Bill Maher recently pointed out…
They said Obamacare would use death panels. It doesn’t. They said it was a government takeover. And the insurance industry is making record profits. They said it covers illegals. It doesn’t. They said it was a job killer. It hasn’t been.
Have you noticed that the shouting about Obamacare has started to fade as the facts have come in?
And to be fair, as Maher continued…
Now for sure Obama also told a lie. He said everyone who likes their healthcare plan can keep it. And for about 2% of the population that did turn out to be false. The difference is he stopped saying it. He stepped up and said you’re right, my bad. Because he understands there is this thing called observable reality!
(Bill was on a rant about “Zombie Lies” that Republicans tell, lies that just won’t die even in the face of overwhelming facts.)

The program is certainly not perfect, but it is a success.
Thanks for caring about the truth.
