One of Donald Trump’s most consistent campaign promises was to “repeal and replace Obamacare.”
Obviously, such a thing is easier said than done. Obama basically placed one-fifth of the U.S. economy — the healthcare sector — under government rule. Tens of millions of individual Americans have been impacted, as have companies large and small.
Even Bill Clinton called Obamacare “crazy” on the campaign trail. Almost everyone agrees that it has to go.
Everyone, that is, except the “architect” of the “crazy” plan, and that man didn’t have a chance when confronted on live TV by Fox News host Tucker Carlson:
Tucker Carlson interviewed Ezekiel Emanuel on Carlson’s new primetime Fox News show Tuesday night. Carlson opened by noting “Obamacare is the biggest piece of social reorganization passed in [his] lifetime, and yet it has never, as far as I know, received majority support.
“The poorest section of our population is young people. They’re the poorest, and yet we’re forcing them to buy into the system to subsidize health care of the old and the sick, who are also the richest section of our population. Why is that fair and why would you expect them to like it?”
Watch the full clip here:
Why, indeed. Remember, this is the bill we were told we had to pass before we could read it. Obama vowed that everyone who already liked their doctor and their insurance plan could keep them, and those were lies.
Now many Americans have been demoted to part time work because their employers can’t afford this “affordable” health care.
