DOOCY: Remember during the original argument about whether or not we should go ahead and pass the Affordable Care Act, also now known as Obamacare, very famously Karl Rove said on this program, he said, you know, 85 percent of the country has health care and likes it. So why blow up the entire system for 15 percent? There is a new poll out this morning that says that, take a guess, how many people in this country, what percentage have insurance now for the very first time because of the Affordable Care Act? How many? What percent?Right. Again, the main provision of the law intended to insure people who don't have insurance hasn't even gone into effect yet. Also, the poll asked about people who have been able to get private health insurance for the first time. It didn't ask about people who would have lost health coverage without Obamacare, like all the young adults who are now able to stay insured through their parents. In addition to the question of how many people are newly insured—and how many people will be newly insured come Jan. 1—Doocy didn't bother mentioning all the people who've gotten benefits on the coverage they did have, like the tens of millions getting free preventive care or rebates.
CO-HOST ELISABETH HASSELBECK: I mean, I'd go 20. Let's go 20 percent.
DOOCY: One percent.
HASSELBECK: Oh, great.
DOOCY: One percent of the country now has insurance because of the Affordable Care Act.
HASSELBECK: That's it?
DOOCY: Yeah, we were told we're helping out 15 percent. But so far, just one.
Doocy was just doing his job as a Fox News host, though: mislead, mislead, mislead.
