Wow, some framing.

Is that the only possible "negative" you could find in the census bureau report?
What about how the wealth gap shrunk? You going to report on that? Or what about the increase in wages for middle class? No, you'll ignore that too.

Is that tweet supposed to sound critical of Trump? Because it doesnβt to us. It sounds like freedom.
Breaking: 2 million people decided they didnβt want to be forced to pay a healthcare mandate anymore. https://t.co/uHKWNut7uy

Wonder what the age demographic is..

Healthy, active 26 to mid to late 30s who donβt want to pay 10-25% of their full time job earnings for perceived useless insurance that would only really benefit them if high cost medical issues came up

over 6 million paid in 2017 to not have ObamaCare. I'm surprised it wasn't more that dropped insurance

guess they wanted their old doctors back?

Itβs almost like people that were no longer forced to buy something they didnβt want stopped buying it. Amazing!
β Mike (@M_P_Anto) September 12, 2019
Maybe they didn't like being forced to buy something
β Barry J (@BarryJ1981) September 12, 2019
Meaning; they weren't forced to buy insurance.
β Hepatitis M (@OohMyNose) September 12, 2019
β¦ because the individual mandate was removed and they no longer got a penalty for not having insurance

You mean that 2 million people that were being forced to buy something they didn't want, stopped buying it? It's baffling. pic.twitter.com/Oj3O0z7KFg

Yes, because after the individual mandate was eliminated and no longer forced to buy horrible, expensive Obamacare Health Insurance, millions of people, like myself, cancelled said horrible, expensive Health Insurance. Thank you, @realDonaldTrump

Alternate tweet: nearly 2 million people were no longer required to sign up for a terrible plan.

Well, yeah; people learned they were not going to be fined for failing to have crappy insurance they won't use.
β Alex Lekas (@TheAlexLekas) September 12, 2019
Amazingly they dropped insurance after no longer being penalized for forced mandates.
β DLass (@Wwlasss) September 12, 2019
In other words, 2 million citizens decided they didn't want to be FORCED to buy Health Insurance. Sounds very American to me.
β Jeannie (@Jeannie4Wishes) September 12, 2019
So 2 million people finally have the freedom to decide they do or don't want healthcare or be forced to pay for it!

So you just decided to leave out the fact that the individual mandate going away might have contributed to this?
β MJJ (@jacktsnack) September 12, 2019
If your premium was bigger than your mortgage and the government stopped fining you for not paying it, what would you do?
β While Supplies Last (@corrcomm) September 12, 2019
2 million people came off Medicaid within that time but ignore the info
β Paige Sullivan (@PaigeSully88) September 12, 2019
To Democrats it's a disaster when people get off government aid. A booming economy that allows people to get off Medicaid and CHIP is bad news to Nancy Pelosi & co. Think about that.

This will be in a Trump ad: Guess how many Dems raised their hands after being asked if illegals would be covered under their health plans https://t.co/ETMzs0pgsq
