Yesterday President Obama did what he does best; patted himself on the back. The administration publicly announced that Obamacare has signed up 7.1 million people demonstrating a supposedly victorious outcome for the President’s signature legislation. American should be skeptical about the administration’s claims and numbers given its track record of misleading the American people, especially when it comes to Obamacare.
Dr. Charles Krauthammer is a brilliant conservative commentator who has taken umbrage with the Obamacare numbers and claims for success. As included in the videos below, Krauthammer reminds us that when the Obamacare legislation was passed, among the many promises made by the President, was that this new law would insure significant number of uninsured Americans. When the many American’s canceled insurance policies are taken into account, it is likely that something less than 2 million of the previous uninsured are now insured. This is a pitiful result considering the total number of uninsured Americans, as well as the outrageous costs and disruptions coming with the Obamacare legislature.
When the “accounting” for Obamacare is finally made clear to Americans, it will prove once again there is no such thing as a free lunch. It will also prove that this President and his Progressive allies either willfully misled Americans or were totally inept in designing the legislation that bears the President’s name.
