Hillary Clinton Wants to Build on Obamacare’s Failure

January 20, 2016

There is a lot to say about the Democratic debate, including that it is stunning how little new ideas they have and when the candidates do, how bad they are.

However, I would like to focus on Hillary Clinton’s comments about how we have accomplished so much on the health care reform front and how she wants to build on Obamacare. She said:

But here’s what I believe, the Democratic Party and the United States worked since Harry Truman to get the Affordable Care Act passed.

We finally have a path to universal health care. We have accomplished so much already. I do not to want see the Republicans repeal it, and I don’t to want see us start over again with a contentious debate. I want us to defend and build on the Affordable Care Act and improve it.

Hum . . . so let’s review how much we have accomplished with Obamacare:

First, Obamacare isn’t about health care, it is about health insurance; not the same thing at all. Also Obamacare didn’t reform the health care system. It just threw trillions of dollars at an already dysfunctional system and implemented many new taxes without even managing to pay for all the new spending. Imagine the damage to the economy.
