ObamaCare on the Brink



The New American: “On Monday, October 3, former President Bill Clinton, in a series of unexpected and perhaps unscripted comments while stumping on behalf of his wife’s presidential campaign in Flint, Michigan, took the political world by surprise when he singled out Obama­Care for scathing criticism.

“You’ve got this crazy system where all of a sudden, 25 million more people have health care, and then the people who are out there busting it, sometimes 60 hours a week, wind up with their premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half and it’s the craziest thing in the world,” Clinton told a crowd of supporters.

But overall, Clinton concluded, Obama­Care is hurting the very people it was intended to help”.

Opinion: The writer was being kind. I have always believed that Obamacare was a hoax from day one. We were told that we could keep our doctor, keep our health plan, and that the cost would go down.

That was a bold-faced lie and the president knew it.

So why did he do it? First since the Dem’s had control of both the Senate and House, Obama knew that he could pass the bill with no Republican votes.

Second, I believe it was designed to fail in 2017 so that his predecessor would be able to pass single payer or Medicare for all, which Senator Obama openly admitted was his goal in 2003.

The problem for Democrats is that the premium increases came in just two weeks before the election, which I am sure was a mistake in early planning.

When someone writes a book on this election, ‘yuge’ Obamacare premium increases will no doubt be blamed as a major factor leading to a Trump victory.

Thank God.
