Over the last several months since Obamacare has been in full effect the numbers started to come in. It has exceeded expectations.

This morning the Huffington Post posted an article that is prescient. The entire piece while long is worth the read. Below are some important excerpts.

The extent to which [Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.)] twisted facts and figures on the ACA during his debate Monday with challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes amazed knowledgeable observers, perhaps none more than Charles Gaba, proprietor of the indispensable ACASignups website.

So Gaba sat down to fact-check every misstatement. He identified 13 uttered during about a five-minute discussion of the ACA, plus about 14 “questionable/confusing statements by either him or the moderator.” Many of the misstatements — heck, call them lies, as Gaba does — are part of discredited Republican attacks on the ACA going back years; what’s shocking is that McConnell is still hauling them out.

Don’t let $418 million of FUD fool you

Politicians who want us to believe the Affordable Care Act is not in our best interests had spent $418 million on 880,000 ads attacking the law as of May. Supporters of the law, by contrast, had spent just $27 million on 58,000 ads. That’s a 15-1 ratio.

"It may involve some hassle for individual employees, as they’ll have to go to the exchange to figure out what plan to get. But most of those Walmart workers will likely come out ahead. Someone who’s earning $9 an hour working 30 hours a week at a Walmart would be making $13,500 a year. Depending on what their spouse makes and what state they’re in, they could be eligible for Medicaid and pay nothing at all for insurance, or get substantial subsidies that would make a private plan extremely affordable."
