In his quest to try to convince people that the Affordable Care Act/Obamacare is way worse than it really is, Republican President Donald Trump told yet another lie. He said “Many of our best and brightest are leaving the medical profession entirely because of Obamacare.”
This is a lie. Not spin. Not an “alternative fact.” It is a lie.
When Obamacare was implemented in 2010 there were 799,510 active doctors in the US. In 2015 there were 850,939.
Once again, you have to wonder why it is that our President has to make stuff up if “Obamacare” is really that bad. Shouldn’t he be able to prove it with actual facts?
