Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) claimed today that the Obama administration was falsifying numbers of Obamacare enrollment.
About 6.55 million uninsured Americans have signed up for health coverage under Obamacare, but Sen. Barrasso said on "Fox News Sunday" that the Obama White House was "cooking the books," noted PoliticsUSA.com (video below).
"I don't think it means anything," Sen. Barrasso claimed. "I think they’re cooking the books on this."
Sen. Barrasso, a top-ranking Republican, provided no proof of his serious allegation.
"Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace cited study by a McKinsey and Company from February to claim Obamacare was a failure.
However, McKinsey and Company won't release their methodology or who is funding their Obamacare studies, noted The Washington Monthly.
Later, Wallace asked Sen. Angus King (I-Maine) why hospitals and doctors "are being excluded by what Obamacare is offering," reports The Weekly Standard.
Sen. King then reminded the Fox News anchor that Obamacare is not an insurance plan.
"There is no such thing as Obamacare. You can't sign up for Obamacare," said Sen. King. "You sign up for an Anthem policy or an Aetna policy or a WellPoint policy. It's private insurance."
