I wonder if any experts told TNR that the Supreme Court doesn’t “repeal” laws.

Through a bunch of number crunching which we are sure was completely objective the “experts” came up with a number of an additional 9,800 deaths per year without Obamacare.

It truly is. The study likely assumed Obamacare would fulfill all the claims made by it’s supporters while also assuming there would be no unintended negative consequences, so the 9,800 figure is about as meaningless as an Obama promise.  It’s a wild guess comprising less than one half of one percent of annual deaths in the United States. It’s in the statistical noise.

Note the picture TNR chose to accompany the article. Subtle yet likely intentional message: BLACK people will die if Obamacare is overturned or repealed.
