Punching the Numbers: Does ObamaCare Really Cost Less Than Cell Phone Coverage?
Obama’s math usually doesn’t add up.

In the midst of March Madness, the White House is making a full-court press of its own: a last-minute push to enroll more than 1.5 million young people in ObamaCare health plans by the end of this month.
But in courting young people, President Obama is making a simple-yet-questionable pitch — that new health coverage basically costs the same as 4G cell coverage.
“You can at this point get health insurance for $100 a month or less, in some cases less than your cell phone bill or your cable bill,” Obama told Ellen DeGeneres this week.
Monthly cell phone plans on major carriers like Sprint, Verizon, and AT&T cost anywhere from $80-$90.
