Chuck Schumer Claims That Obamacare is Working

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) boldly declared that Obamacare is working during a press conference on Tuesday, during which Senate Democrats bashed the American Health Care Act (AHCA).

A reporter asked Schumer about Sen. Cornyn (R-TX) saying: “if [Democrats] don’t like this proposal, then what’s your suggestion [for fixing Obamacare]”?

“Well, we’ve offered it. It’s on the books, and it’s working.” Schumer declared.

There’s plenty of evidence to the contrary.

So, if increasing premiums, rising deductibles, lack of choice, failing co-ops, and long wait times are Sen. Schumer’s idea of working, then he would be right to say Obamacare is working.
