The Clinton campaign is in a bad spot of sorts. There is this idea that people want to hear that things are good and are not going to change. They want to hear the president has done a good job and Hillary will be doing the same things. This will of course be a fantasy, but it is what fundraisers want to push.
But, as Bill Clinton is campaigning for his wife, there have been a few problems. Bill has been telling the truth. And most recently he spoke about the rising problems of Obama Care.
Bill Clinton, on the campaign trail for Hillary Clinton, told voters in Michigan on Monday that the legislation has created a “crazy system” where millions more people have health care but those unable to qualify for subsidies are getting “killed.”
“The people … out there busting it, sometimes 60 hours a week, wind up with their premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half,” Clinton said. “It’s the craziest thing in the world.”
The comments come as Republican and Democratic administrations at the state level all grapple with fresh complications from the law, as insurers threaten to leave the ObamaCare exchanges amid financial concerns and customers face the prospect of rising premiums for the plans available.
This seems to be a direct attack on the jewel in the emperor’s crown. But it is something that can barely be denied.
With more and more insurance companies opting out of the exchanges, there seems only two options left. One, the Congress can repeal the plan. This would be a scrapping of the system. The proverbial going back to the drawing board. But this would likely be the death of universal healthcare because of the state of politics today.
Second would be to scrap the exchange and make Obamacare a single payer system. Government healthcare. Paid for by taxpayers and granted to everyone as a right. And after all, this is what Obama wanted, to begin with, right.
