A Republican Congresswoman’s Obamacare Twitter Poll Didn’t Go as Planned
Politics| | By Steven Lerner
According to The Hill, White House spokesman Eric Schultz retweeted the Twitter poll, which may have helped influence the results. Blackburn and other members of Congress also have access to a better publicly funded health care plan. In addition, the Republicans have yet to name a sustainable alternative to the Affordable Care Act. Parts of Obamacare still remain largely popular. Since the bill was enacted, over 20 million people have gained access to affordable health care. Also, the rate of health insurance premium increases has dropped thanks to the bill. On Wednesday, the hashtag #ACAWorks began trending on Twitter, as many people shared their personal stories of how Obamacare has helped them.

#ACAWorks: Women are no longer charged more than men for the same coverage. Being a woman is no longer a pre-existing condition.— Rep. Lois Frankel (@RepLoisFrankel) January 5, 2017
