Hundreds of statements about Obamacare and related issues rated here for truth or lack thereof
If you’re going to discuss the pros and cons of Obamacare (or health care in general) with your acquaintances, you would do well to check THIS LONG, LONG LIST of statements, each of which is rated for accuracy by the Pulitzer Prize-winning PolitiFact website.
Here are a few of my favorites:
Sen. Ted Cruz’s statement that “President Obama just granted all of Congress an exception” to Obamacare is rated false.
Rep. Paul Ryan’s claim that “Obamacare … carries on even under a government shutdown” is rated mostly true.
Sen. Marco Rubio’s argument that under Obamacare, people who “have a doctor they’ve been seeing for the last 15 or 20 years, they won’t be able to keep going to that doctor” is rated mostly false.
And Rubio’s claim that under Obamacare, “75 percent of small businesses now say they are going to be forced to either fire workers or cut their hours” gets a Pants On Fire rating.
