Raul: Obamacare Numbers Fudged

In a news release, Congressman Raul Labrador writes: "This week, President Obama announced that 7.1 million Americans had enrolled in the Obamacare exchanges by the March 31st deadline.  This was portrayed as a major victory for the President but, not for the first time, he is missing the point about his signature health care law. For starters, most enrollees already had insurance before Obamacare kicked them off their plan.  While the Administration won’t release an exact number, McKinsey estimates that 73 percent of the Obamacare enrollees already had insurance.  That comes to about 5 million Americans. The vast majority of those people liked their health plan." More here.

Question: Do you believe the Obama administration fudged the Obamacare signup numbers?
