There is a disconnect between the experience of people signing up for Obamacare and the rhetoric of proponents of the healthcare law like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, political strategist Karl Rove told Fox News' "America's Newsroom" on Monday.

Pelosi called the healthcare law "affordable, affordable, affordable, affordable" during a news conference March 20. While Pelosi and President Barack Obama could use the word "affordable," Rove said they were "going to be dealing with people who are going to be able to compare what they used to pay and what they pay today."

People "are going to be saying, 'It is not affordable for me. It's getting less affordable,'" said Rove, former deputy chief of staff to President George W. Bush.

All the elements used to promote Obamacare were not true, Rove argued, including people being able to keep their doctors, insurance costs lowered, and no new taxes on those who earn less than $250,000.

"Every single promise used to sell the Affordable Care Act has turned out not to be true," Rove said.

White House estimates that 7 million people would sign up for Obamacare by the March 31 deadline "ain't going to happen," Rove said. He said a survey indicated that of those who had enrolled, roughly 27 percent were previously uninsured.

"Most of the people who signed up for insurance coverage through the exchanges already had health insurance coverage and lost it, because Obamacare didn't let them keep the plan that they wanted to keep or let them have a doctor they want to have," he said.
