Surprise, surprise. Barack Obama isn’t keen on the effort by Republicans in the Senate finally to repeal Obamacare.
In an address this week to a crowd at a fundraiser for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, he declared that getting rid of Obamacare would ‘inflict real human suffering’.
The problem with that logic is that it ignores the fact that Obamacare is already on its last legs.
And the longer we wait to repeal and replace, the more people will be hurt by its inevitable collapse.
But liberals don’t really care about people so much as they care about their agenda of allegedly ‘helping people’.
But that’s socialism, folks: global humanitarianism that disregards actual humans.
Here’s more from Daily Wire…
So, the architect of Obamacare, which is failing faster than an Adam Sandler movie, thinks it’d be a terrible idea to get rid of Obamacare.
President Obama gave a speech on Wednesday at a New York at an event on global development sponsored by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (we don’t know if he was paid his usual $400,000 speaking fee). There, he said the GOP effort to repeal his Affordable Care Act would inflict “real human suffering” on millions of Americans.

But many experts agree Obamacare is on thin ice. Major health insurers in some states recently sought increases as high as 30% or more for premiums on 2018 plans. “Big insurers in Idaho, West Virginia, South Carolina, Iowa and Wyoming are seeking to raise premiums by averages close to 30% or more,” the Wall Street Journal reported.
Still, Obama says it’s just downright mean for Republicans to try to repeal the failing system. “When I see people trying to undo that hard-won progress for the 50th or 60th time, it is aggravating.”
Obama said the new GOP plan would make deny coverage to cancer survivors, pregnant women, and children with asthma “without any … common sense rationale.” Of course, none of that’s true, but when did facts ever get in the way with Obama?
