Early Tuesday morning, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest attempted to silence critics of the Affordable Care Act (also known as Obamacare) by declaring its evident success on social media.

“FACT: Under #ACA, everyone’s insurance got upgraded & most can find a plan on the marketplace for $75/month or less,” Earnest tweeted. The press secretary’s declaration naturally incited a great deal of disagreement on the social media platform.

For news of Obamacare’s constant demise, you can check out PJ Media’s exhaustive previous coverage, including numerous “Obamacare fails of the day” by our own Stephen Green. But today, I’d like to let the people struggling under the new regulations speak for themselves.
