Separating Fact From Fiction Amid The Obamacare Debate

President Barack Obama signs the Affordable Care Act into law on March 23, 2010.

The Republican Party declared war on the Kenyan born Muslim American president in 2009 that persists today, with specious claims about Obamacare and fuzzy math surrounding their own plan. 


A fact is indisputable and reflects certainty. We can support a statement of fact by citing empirical evidence, academic observations, professional studies and expert opinion.

Disseminating biased or misleading information to justify a political point of view is propaganda of the worst order. Propaganda relies on alternative facts, misinformation and hyperbole. The Republican Party has been engaged in a coordinated and lengthy propaganda campaign to denigrate and discredit president Barack Obama and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) which he signed into law on March 23, 2010.

It’s hard for me to believe, but I’m here to tell you that the gay community and the trans community, are under attack. Opponents of LGBT civil rights are determined to terrorize us and take away the few small gains we’ve made in the last few years.

The Texas Supreme Court heard oral arguments in a case that challenges extending spousal benefits to same-sex couples.

The Supreme Court (SCOTUS) refused to hear an appeal related to transgender bathroom rights filed by a trans high school student. SCOTUS remanded the case back to the lower court, which invalidates the Obama era education guidelines to be sensitive to the needs of transgender students in public schools.

In addition to the threats to our hard fought LGBT civil rights, it seems as if our government and political institutions are being threatened too.

Since the inauguration of Donald Trump, we’ve seen nothing but chaos, lies, misdeeds, and misinformation, coming from the White House. The news has been grim.
