Obama the clinger.
“A drop dead sprint from the day he’s born straight into his maker’s arms.” – The Black Keys
Some think Obamacare was designed to implode so that it would create the impetus for socialized, taxpayer funded medicine. Some say that Obamacare is just a flat out disaster that was constructed horribly by people who thought they were smarter than they actually are. I think it’s a mix of both but more parts just plain old idiotic statism than any sort of conspiracy.
As we’ve said here many times we have plenty of problems with Mr. Trump. But Trump’s critique of the old media, legacy media, whatever, is pretty spot on. The media helped Obama get elected, protected Obama during his presidency, (A pretty good case could have been made for Obama’s impeachment.) and went whole hog in for Hillary Clinton. Of course The New York Times and CNN are pissed. THEY LOST.
We’ve covered this issue multiple times in the past. As The Times article below points out the Obama Administration basically appropriated funds without Congress (It’s not supposed to work that way.) in an effort to indemnify health insurers who were hemorrhaging money due to Obamacare. Without the money Obamacare would have failed even more quickly.
Obama and company thought they’d get away with it. If they could limp along until President Hillary Clinton came in the White House then they could dump this problem in her lap.
No reason to fix this.
Hey, so I guess they actually WERE talking over Easter break.
I have serious issues with Ann, but she is prone to occasional flashes of valuable insight.
Oh we hope so.
Not 60, as we’ve been told.
Obamacare is/was a deeply crony piece of legislation, written in large part by the insurance companies and pharma. The individual mandate is a travesty. Obamacare deserves/needs to be repealed. But the GOP leadership seems to think that once a program is in place it must always remain in place. Time for that kind of thinking to end.
