I just added four new items to my list of Obamacare criticisms
The complete list can be found at https://danfromsquirrelhill.wordpress.com/2013/09/24/obamacare-59/
Here are the new entries:
338) After Obamacare caused Obama supporting graduate students at the University of Missouri to lose their insurance, they falsely blamed it on the school
In August 2015, the University of Missouri issued the following message to its graduate students:
“The Affordable Care Act prevents employers from giving employees money specifically so they can buy health insurance on the individual market. Graduate teaching and research assistants are classified as employees by the IRS, so they fall under this ruling.”
However, in November 2015, left wing graduate students who had voted for Obama, falsely blamed their loss of insurance on the school, instead of on Obamacare.
339) A federal judge ruled that some of the funding for Obamacare was unconstitutional
In May 2016, U.S. District Court Judge Rosemary Collyer ruled that some of the funding for Obamacare was unconstitutional, because it had not been approved by Congress.
340) Obama falsely said that opponents of Obamacare did not have a plan to replace it
In November 2016, when talking about Republican opponents of Obamacare, Obama said:
“You watch the press conference and you realize, they got no plan… It’s not like, they don’t even have a pretense of a plan. They don’t even have a semblance of a plan. Not even a hint of a plan. Not even a remote — not even a — there’s no plan. Nothing, zero, nada. You can’t just be against something. You gotta be for something.”
However, several months earlier, in June 2016, the Republicans had announced this plan to replace Obamacare.
341) Obama falsely said that none of the predictions that were made by Obamacare opponents came true
In November 2016, when talking about predictions made by Obamacare opponents, Obama said:
“None of what they said has happened.”
However, in the real world, Obamacare opponents accurately predicted that Obamacare would cause millions of people to lose their insurance.
