Default The GOP's Latest Anti-Obamacare Talking Point Just Went Down In Flames

AP
Last week, the Republican-led House Committee on Energy and Commerce released information claiming only 67% of enrollees in insurance exchanges established by the Affordable Care Act made their first premium payment. The data was paraded around as a talking point ahead of the Obama administration's final release of stats from the law's first open enrollment period.


On Wednesday, that talking point blew up.


Three of the country's largest insurers Aetna, WellPoint, and Health Care Service Corp., which operates Blue Cross Blue Shield plans in several states said between 80-90% of new customers who enrolled through Obamacare paid their first month's premiums. Executives from the companies announced the news in testimony before the very same House Committee on Energy and Commerce where Republicans touted the contrary data last week.
