    ....The Pinocchio Test

    Essentially, then, it is ridiculous to suggest, as the @BarackObama tweet does, that the people who have selected a health plan in the exchanges are in anyway equivalent to the 3.9 to 4.2 million who were deemed eligible for Medicaid.

    Soon, CMS will release the Medicaid numbers for December. Presumably the new numbers will reveal as little about the impact of the Affordable Care Act as the 3.9 million figure. Reporters need to be very careful about using the new figure in any sentence that includes a reference to the new health-care law.

    We’re awarding Three Pinocchios to everyone, including The Fact Checker, who improperly used this number or left the wrong impression about it.

    He lied about "If you like your plan you can keep it. Period."

    Why wouldn't he lie about how many were enrolling in his plans? His modus operandi is "Reality is what I say it is."

    He would rather climb a tree and tell a lie than stand on the ground and tell the truth.
