Rush Limbaugh, Drudge Report Cover David Hogberg’s ObamaCare Reports

DavidHogbergDrudge040214WCongratulations to the National Center’s David Hogberg, whose work uncovering various pitfalls of ObamaCare has been read on the air twice by Rush Limbaugh and cited on the Drudge Report during the past week.

On Tuesday, Drudge linked to David Hogberg’s new paper putting the lie to President Obama’s claim that “more than 3 million young adults… have gained insurance under [ObamaCare] by staying on their family’s plan.”

Using data from the Census Bureau, David found strikingly different numbers than those reported by the President: only 258,000 young adults may have gained coverage due to the so-called “slacker mandate.”

Rush spent about 8 minutes discussing this on his show Wednesday.

On Friday, Rush discussed another part of David’s research, the ObamaCare signup deadlines and related issues.

For fans of Rush and/or David, here are Dittocam captures and transcripts, with links to the original reports.
