Stunning Maps Depict Collapse Of Obamacare “Coverage” In 2017
Remember when Obama toured around the country telling everyone that Obamacare was going to increase competition and lower premiums? If not, here is an example to help jog your memory (comments taken fromObama remarks delivered at Prince George’s Community College on 9/26/13):
