The four big ObamaCare lies listed below don’t even include the series of lies beginning with if you like your plan - you can keep your plan, if you like your doctor - you can keep your doctor, etc., etc.
Lie #1: ObamaCare is affordable. Even the president’s ideological allies, like Michael Moore, acknowledge that the Affordable Care Act is far from inexpensive for most Americans and that it “risks being a cruel joke.”
Lie #2: ObamaCare will prevent people from going into debt. Chronically ill people are likely to be underinsured and face extremely high out-of-pocket costs. “While the subsidies will help, there still may be access problems for some populations.”
Lie #3: ObamaCare will lower costs overall. The idea that people with medical insurance go to the emergency room less, and thus, help to reduce the overall cost of health care, isn’t necessarily true.
Researchers compared Medicaid recipients with those with no health insurance and found that people with access to Medicaid went to the emergency room 40 percent more than those without insurance.
Lie #4. More Americans will be insured. Approximately 2.8 million Americans have signed up for new health-care plans since the Affordable Care Act went into effect on January 1. How many of them will actually pay for the insurance is anybody’s guess.
Even if the entire 2.8 million actually buy the insurance that is less than the 3.3 million the federal government predicted would sign up, and is also dwarfed by the 4.7 million whose insurance policies have been canceled as a result of ObamaCare!
