Remember all those scare claims about President Obama “stealing” money from Medicare to fund the Affordable Care Act? They were always bogus, but they grow more bogus by the year.
Since the ACA, aka Obamacare, came along, Medicare’s projected solvency has been extended by 13 years, according to the latest report out today. And Medicare Advantage, the part of the program where the rate of growth was cut by hundreds of billions of dollars, has remained vibrant, even growing over the past few years.
Dreaded Obamacare, for all its flaws, continues to prove its critics wrong on its most important measures and impact.
