Trump administration perpetuates lies about ACA “death spiral” — it’s not collapsing. It’s stable and McConnell and Ryan know it!

Complicating matters, it’s not just experts reaching this conclusion. Even the Trump administration agrees that Trump’s rhetoric is wrong.

FiveThirtyEight explained this morning:

“The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which is part of the Department of Health and Human Services, last week released a report about a wonky aspect of the Affordable Care Act related to insurance payments. Tucked away in the report, however, was evidence that the health insurance marketplaces set up by Obamacare were relatively stable in 2016.

Contrary to the “death-spiral” narrative, the CMS report found that the mix of healthy and sick people buying insurance on the Obamacare marketplaces in 2016 was surprisingly similar to those who enrolled in 2015.”
