Congressman Mike Rogers’ Profound Statement on Obamacare

Posted by Steve Markowitz on August 21, 2013

In 2009 Obamacare was being debated in Congress while the Democrats controlled that branch of government.  Republicans and a few brave Democrats saw the fallacy in the proposal to create Obamacare.  Their concerns were based on the history of government creating inefficient programs that typically end up costing Americans more.  They saw as preposterous the President’s claim that his program would add millions of uninsured to being insured without increasing the overall cost of healthcare.

Four years later the chickens are coming home to roost.  Major portions of the apparatus of government required to implement and run Obamacare are still not in place.  Estimates of the total cost of this program have dramatically increased.  President Obama has issued exemptions from the law to all sorts of special interest groups and most recently has delayed by one year implementation of the employer mandate.  It is evident to all but the uninformed and Kool-Aid drinkers that Obamacare is a train wreck.

Four years ago while Obamacare was being debated, Republican Congressman Mike Rogers of Michigan made a profound statement at a committee hearing concerning the bill.  The video is posted below with a big “I told you so”.

Those that voted for Obamacare own this mess.  Republicans would do well to not attempt to defund the program since Obamacare will collapse under its own weight, a fitting end for Obama’s signature legislation.
