During a recent discussion of the Affordable Care Act, GOP propaganda regarding the US uninsured rate, former Sen. Judd (R-N.H.) insisted, “It has not plummeted.” Basically, Gregg stated his belief the ACA has not reduced the number of people covered by some for of medical insurance coverage. A remark that is so far outside of accurate it cannot even be considered a lie.
Data and visual representation of data are the most effective way to deal with people who obviously get all of their news from Breitbart dot com, The Baze, The Daily Caller and various AM Talk radio stations. Let's view a few graphs that place Greggs rhetoric in perspective.
To put Obamacare’s reduction of the uninsurance rate into perspective, let’s compare it to something a bit more recent. There was a huge outcry over people losing their plans as a result of the new law, but a study from the Urban Institute found that the total was fewer than a million policies were actually canceled. Meanwhile, that 6% point reduction in the uninsurance rate since the passage of Obamacare means that at least 16.4 million people without insurance now have coverage- an amount that is expected to double over the next few years.
Cary Fiorina continued her bizarre utterances regarding the ACA (and other issues) with typical Fiorina non-sense.

Spewing re-establish rhetoric may work well with a Fox News debate panel and conservative audience, but Fiorina flop once e fact-checkers and analyzers go to work after the debate.
