President Trump’s latest tweet in a Tuesday morning Twitter storm was about the failing Obamacare program.
The Trump administration announced Monday that there were only 10.3 million paying customers on Obamacare plans during the month of February – a drop of almost 2 million people from the 12.2 million people who had actually signed up for the coverage by the end of January.
According to a report, 1.9 million people failed to pay the first month’s premium after signing up for the coverage.
Seema Verma, an administrator for the agency that oversees ObamaCare, commented on the drop: “Customers are sending a clear message that cost and affordability are major factors in their decision to cancel or terminate coverage.”
President Trump tweeted Tuesday morning: “2 million more people just dropped out of ObamaCare. It is in a death spiral. Obstructionist Democrats gave up, have no answer = resist!”
