Some great news for Republicans with the midterms coming up:
A new report just in has undermined the Democrat’s attack and fear mongering claiming President Trump is sabotaging Obamacare. This is great news and something the Republicans can use to hit back at the argument being made by Democratic candidates running now to try and take over the majority in the House and Senate.
Thank goodness the Census Bureau just released new data that has undermined their argument by finding the uninsured rate from President Trump’s first year in office remained unchanged. So the uninsured rate is the same under Trump as it was under Obama.
Democrats have used the actions of the Trump administration to cut ads and outreach for Obamacare in order to assert that Trump is trying to sabotage the law. It’s just not the case so Republican candidates need to use this report to refute the narrative being pushed by Democrats. We hope this is another nail in the coffin for the socialists running for Congress.
CNN was just pushing this narrative for the Democrats this afternoon…SCREENSHOT:

For instance, the percentage of insured Americans on Medicare ticked up to 17.2 percent from 16.7 percent, but that can easily be explained by another wave of baby boomers retiring. Economic growth meant more people with jobs, which could easily explain why Medicaid and directly-purchased insurance coverage went down slightly and employment-based coverage ticked up. (Specifically, Medicaid went to 19.3 percent from 19.4 percent; direct-purchase insurance went to 16 percent from 16.2 percent; and employment-based coverage ticked up to 56 percent from 55.7 percent).
The bottom line is that the uninsured rate is the same under Trump as it was under Obama…WINNING!
