While addressing The Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) Republican President Donald Trump could not help but tell another outrageous lie. I guess he figures he needs to try to improve on his record of lying.
So the Republican President actually said very few people are covered by Obamacare. And yet, estimates are that repealing Obamacare will result in 30 million people losing health coverage. That’s almost 10% of the US population. That’s more than ten times the margin of victory Hillary Clinton had in popular vote. In dollar terms, that would be enough for ten Presidential golf trips to his Florida golf resort ($3M a trip). Any way you slice it, repealing Obamacare without a suitable replacement enacted, would harm tens of millions of people.
Lies! Nothing but lies!
