Obamacare Was Designed to Explode --- Dems Want Single-Payer

There were two big winners when the House failed to take up the President Donald Trump-backed bill to repeal and replace Obamacare: Barack Obama, who saw Obamacare stand; and Dr. Ben Carson, who was smart enough to pick Housing and Urban Development over Health and Human Services.

Oh, spare us the "Republicans failed to get their health care bill through" media hyperventilation. Trump, said many in the media with unconcealed glee, did not close the deal! The Trump agenda is imperiled! Had it passed, the same pundits would be shredding it as cold and heartless, the moral equivalent of signing your granny up with ISIS just to get her out of the house.

Yes, despite a Republican in the Oval Office and Republican majorities in the Senate and House, Trump and Speaker Paul Ryan couldn't pressure that faction of "free-market Republicans" known as the Freedom Caucus to sign on to their Obamacare replacement. This must be frustrating to the businessman-turned-politician in chief.

Historian Richard E. Neustadt, in "Presidential Power: the Politics of Leadership" writes: "When contemplating General Eisenhower winning the Presidential election, Truman said, 'He'll sit here, and he'll say, 'Do this! Do that!' And nothing will happen. Poor Ike — it won't be a bit like the Army. He'll find it very frustrating.'" No doubt, Trump is experiencing this frustration. Reportedly, Trump recently lamented that real estate is easier than politics.

As for Obamacare, Trump is right to point out that Obamacare is on life support right now, and rising premiums, copays and deductibles were forecast even if Hillary Clinton had won the presidency. Remember, too, that Obamacare was intended to "fail," given the Democrats' real goal of a Canadian-style taxpayer-paid health care. Harry Reid openly said so. The Las Vegas Sun reported in 2013:

"In just about seven weeks, people will be able to start buying Obamacare-approved insurance plans through the new health care exchanges.

"But already, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is predicting those plans, and the whole system of distributing them, will eventually be moot.

"Reid said he thinks the country has to 'work our way past' insurance-based health care during a Friday night appearance on Vegas PBS' program 'Nevada Week in Review.'

"'What we've done with Obamacare is have a step in the right direction, but we're far from having something that's going to work forever,' Reid said.

"When then asked by panelist Steve Sebelius whether he meant ultimately the country would have to have a health care system that abandoned insurance as the means of accessing it, Reid said: 'Yes, yes. Absolutely, yes.'"

Here is a piece I discovered by Chance. This is in 2011 when John Boehner was is charge of the House and spending. He let the anti-capitalist run over him without negotiating for his constituents. Obama ran on cutting the deficit however he's caught on an open-mic and didn't give a damn about budget cuts. Listen for yourself. Listen to him rant about his work getting healthcare passed. This is the same type of attitude that has led to the bill being passed by reconciliation instead of 60 votes in the senate. He also complained about GWB prescription drug plan that passed bipartisan with 60 votes. He is the main reason why Obamacare can be repealed and replaced because he didn't fulfill the promise to "Work across party lines" They had 59 votes after Ted Kennedy died, all they had to do is work with the Republicans and fix the problems we say are real today that the Republicans identified back in 2009 but wasn't invited to the law making deal.

Obama screwed us all. The house,
senate and their staff were all exempt but not the voters that put them in office. Until they pass a health care law that cover's them as well as us it's not acceptable. Obama is the worst president ever. PS ... the Union leaders was also exempt from ObamaCare.
