CNN's Jim Acosta hit with another fact-check of his own 'fact-check' on Medicare for All

As Twitchy reported Wednesday, USA Today printed an op-ed by President Trump claiming that Democrats want to outlaw private health care plans and take away Americans’ freedom to choose their own health plans.


CNN’s Jim Acosta was appalled at what he read:

The Washington Examiner’s Philip Klein hit Acosta with a quick fact-check yesterday, but now that he’s had a minute, he’s published a much more detailed takedown of Acosta’s tweet.

Klein writes:

Now, here we have one of those instances in which a tweet from USA Today is using shorthand for something that’s described in more detail in the article. The op-ed says, “It is right there in their proposed legislation: Democrats outlaw private health plans that offer the same benefits as the government plan.” This is, in fact, 100 percent accurate.

It’s crystal clear the bill would eliminate every existing private insurance policy within four years, which would mean about 180 million individuals would have to give up the insurance they currently purchase on their own or through their employers.


Klein breaks down Sen. Bernie Sanders’ bill — cosponsored by 2020 hopefuls Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, Cory Booker, and Kamala Harris — in detail by section in case there was any doubt. What does Acosta think the Democrats have been pushing for for so long? Did he really think Obamacare was where it ended?
