As Obama’s presidency is about to end, he is scrambling to save his product Obamacare from its dead or replacement. He immediately scheduled and emergency meeting with congressional Democrats this week, afraid of Trump’s intentions.
According to The Federalist Papers
Obama’s signature healthcare legislation has been criticized almost since its passage in 2010 as not providing affordable health coverage and, in fact, driving up the cost of premiums. It has also been fraught with technical difficulties and scandals suggesting the designers knew it would never work but had to implement it to get to the single-payer healthcare option.
Trump has vowed to repeal the law and called it a “disaster.” He has also nominated vocal critic of the law Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.) to head the Department of Health and Human Services. This has led congressional Democrats to worry that their GOP colleagues will make good on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s call to make repealing and replacing Obamacare “step one” in the GOP agenda this year.
No ifs, ands, or buts about it — Obamacare has been mired with disaster from the outset and Republicans have not disguised their criticism of such foolish and financially-irresponsible legislation.
And they are working hard to rectify all issues and secure Obamacare’s permanency.
Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi and Bernie Sanders organized a parade for what they’re calling a “Day of Action” on January 15, five days before Trump’s inauguration to “to highlight GOP efforts to cut or significantly change ‘vital and necessary health programs,’” Fox News notes.
That should be interesting. Maybe Sanders and Pelosi should parade the stats of the exorbitant cost and inefficacy of Obamacare.
Better yet, let’s have floats for the number of insurance companies who have already pulled out of Obamacare.
Trump’s assessment is accurate.
Obamacare has been a disaster from day one.
Insurance companies recognize this.
Every single American knows this! It’s time for Democrats to accept the reality and move on with their lives. Obama and his policies are a big failure for our country! Bye and good riddance!
