We found the perfect meme to go along with this report from the Dallas Morning News:
Dallas Rep. Pete Sessions claimed on the House floor today that Obamacare coverage costs federal taxpayers $5 million for each newly covered American.
He was off by a lot — nearly $5 million, in fact.
“If you just do simple multiplication, 12 million into $108 billion, we’re talking literally every single recipient would be costing this government more than $5 million per person for their insurance,” said Sessions, chairman of the House Rules Committee.
The actual math is this: $108 billion divided by 12 million equals $9,000.
