ACA: NY State AG Gives Us Facts In Answer To Trump

Donald Trump has a lousy understanding of public policy and how things work. The NY State Attorney General took down a Trump tweet on the ACA, masterfully....

Trump Tweet:

2 million more people just dropped out of ObamaCare. It is in a death spiral. Obstructionist Democrats gave up, have no answer = resist!

Answers from Eric Schneiderman...

1: This obscene distortion is part and parcel of @realDonaldTrump's deliberate campaign to undermine our health care. Here are the facts:

2: FACT: Since the #ACA's inception, the number of New Yorkers without health insurance has fallen from 10% to 5% in 2016--a historic low.

3: FACT: Trump is talking about people who signed up for policies but didn't pay for coverage. That's normal--the same # did this last year.

4: FACT: The #ACA is not in a death spiral. It continues to insure and protect millions, despite @POTUS's attempts to sabotage.

5: FACT: Where costs are rising, @POTUS bears responsibility. His threat to end critical subsidies could increase premiums by up to 21%.

6: I'm using every legal tool at my disposal to protect NYers. If @POTUS signs the House's #Trumpcare bill, I'll sue.

Yes, our President continues to get everything wrong.

Thank you Eric Schneiderman for your truth.
