Representative Vicky Hartzler (r) today on Obmacare, via Twitter:

Rep. Vicky Hartzler ‏@RepHartzler

Why are more people losing their insurance than getting it? #AskSebelius (….) 6:59 AM – 10 Dec 13

What are your numbers? Who’s doing the counting? Like insurance companies would report how many people with substandard insurance they gouged in the past?  Do you count people who lost substandard insurance with very expensive deductibles and then gained affordable health insurance with standard benefits twice? Shouldn’t you wait until after the signup deadline in March to count? Just asking.

And, of course, this being the Internets, Representative Hartzler (r) gets some replies:

@RepHartzler Insurance companies refuse to step up to a minimum level of care. An American disgrace 7:25 AM – 10 Dec 13

Bob Yates ‏@OldDrum

@RepHartzler It is good to know that you take stands based on posters. Facts are so much more difficult, aren’t they? 7:47 AM – 10 Dec 13

We await Representative Hartzler’s unimpeachable numbers and sources for her assertion.
