On Wednesday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) took to the floor of the United States Senate to denounce what he called false “horror stories” from Americans who have experienced negative consequences as a result of the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. He insisted that the ACA has had a series of positive effects and “all” of the anecdotes of negative outcomes resulting from the ACA are “untrue.”
“Across the country, Americans who were once denied insurance because they suffered from something like cancer or as simple as acne were able to buy affordable health insurance that they could afford and they could trust,” Reid said of the ACA.
“But despite all that good news, there’s plenty of horror stories being told,” Reid insisted. “All of them are untrue, but they’re being told all over America.”
