In 2016, Donald Trump hired a well-known conservative economic talking head: Stephen Moore. On any given day, you can find Moore earning copious paychecks on camera at MSNBC, CNN and probably many visits to Fox News with his patented form of economic snake oil.
Of all of Moore's unrelated and over-the-top conservative rhetoric, the following is one case I recall most.
Media Matters July 2014 (well before Trump declared himself a candidate for the GOP 2016 ticket):
Moore's mission of late is that of the anti-Affordable Care Act terrorist. Moore recently appeared in an exchange with CNN's Anderson Cooper and Robert Reich, former Clinton Administration Secretary of Labor.
Moores rounds also found him on the Christian Broadcast Network. In the spirit of Christianity, I wonder how the medical care abandonment for 24 million Americans stacks up in the aura of the scriptures.

In 2011, Moore entered into an echage with MSNBC's Rachel Maddow (a sure fired loss on his part even before the interviews), regarding income gains of the top 1 percent and the gains of American in the lowest income strata. Well, you need not go any further Moore was lying.
If you are a high information voter/person (HIV) and have a bit of time Ezra Klein's Vox offer a detailed review of why the ACA is not on a conservative "death spiral."
