Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, May 15, 2019

President Donald Trump has failed so far to eliminate the Affordable Care Act, but his administration is making good progress disappearing the law from official government websites.

According to a report released Wednesday by the Sunlight Foundation, a nonprofit that promotes government transparency, the Trump administration has removed references to the 2010 health care law from Health and Human Services websites at least 26 times since Trump took office in January 2017.

"HHS has surgically removed the term ‘Affordable Care Act' from many webpages; taken down information on rights guaranteed under the ACA; eliminated statistics and data on the ACA's impact; and removed links to the federal government's main platform for enrolling in ACA coverage, HealthCare.gov," the report, entitled "Erasing the Affordable Care Act: Using Government Web Censorship to Undermine the Law" says.
