More fuzzy math from the desperate anti-ACA crowd

The folks who seem to have staked their entire political careers on opposing the Affordable Care Act are growing increasingly desperate as the law continues to work and provide coverage for millions of Americans who were previously uninsured.

Steven Benen has a good summary of the latest effort to mislead the public about the ACA, a  cheap publicity stunt by House Republicans rife with factual errors and bogus claims.

    Here’s some fuzzy math on the ACA stupidity. In Oregon, they spent almost $300 MILLION taxpayer dollars on their state exchange to sign up just 33,000 folks. Of course, many never paid their premiums and many were previously insured, so the actual cost of signing someone up was over $10,000 each. In Hawaii, it cost over $ 53,000 per person in administrative costs. This didn’t even include the subsidies that had to be paid out. Anyone who claims this to be a success needs to have their head examined.
