Politico: Trump Wrong About Obamacare Coverage Figures

(Politico)

One website has called out President Donald Trump for making what it said was a false claim during his CPAC speech on Friday.

"Obamacare covers very few people," Trump told the crowd in National Harbor, Md. "We're gonna repeal and replace Obamacare."

As Politico notes, roughly 20 million Americans are covered under the Affordable Care Act that was passed in 2010 by former President Barack Obama.

Trump has vowed to work with Republicans in Congress to repeal the federal healthcare law and replace it with something better. Not everyone is convinced the GOP will actually repeal it, however.

Former House Speaker John Boehner, a Republican, said Thursday a repeal won't likely happen.

"(Congressional Republicans are) going to fix Obamacare — I shouldn't call it repeal-and-replace, because it's not going to happen," he said.
