White House caps 16-day Obamacare blitz with benefits 'fact sheets'
The White House on Thursday released two "fact sheets" touting early ObamaCare successes, capping a 16-day media blitz intended to promote the healthcare law's benefits. The reports say millions of Americans have already received free preventive services, obtained coverage despite pre-existing conditions, taken advantage of the expanded access to Medicaid, benefited from the closing of Medicare's "donut hole," or been able to remain on their parents' healthcare plans. "The benefits of the healthcare law are real, and the repeal plan pushed by Republicans in Congress would undermine or eliminate them across the board, reversing critical consumer protections and driving up costs for millions of Americans," the White House said in a statement.
