We are now all aware that Obama care was/is a disaster!! You either lost or had to pay a terrible price to have it, just so the welfare, illegals etc could have theirs and we, the working people, had to go without to pay for them!
It was reported that yesterday the GOP’s healthcare bill passed in the House without the help of any Democrats. That means that this bill will replace Obamacare if eventually successfully passes the Senate. What comforting news, then, could conservative pundit Charles Krauthammer have for the left?
Via The Federalist Papers Project: What comforting news, then, could conservative pundit Charles Krauthammer have for the left?
Krauthammer Predicts the United States Will Have a Single Payer System Within Seven Years. Krauthammer spoke to Chris Wallace on Fox News on Thursday and discussed the “success” of the GOP health care bill. He predicted, however, that within seven years, the United States “will end up with a single-payer system.”
Why Seven Years?He considered this the “midpoint.” “We had seven years of Obamacare,” Krauthammer contended, which produced “a change in expectations. And I would predict that in less than seven years we’ll be in a single payer system.”
Krauthammer Argues Liberals Have Already Won the Battle Over Healthcare. How so? Because of that change in expectation:
“Look at the terms of the debate,” Krauthammer explained. “Republicans are not arguing the free market anymore, they have sorted accepted the fact that the electorate sees healthcare as not just any commodity. It’s not like purchasing a steak or a car. It’s something that people now have a sense that government ought to guarantee.
And because of that, even Republicans are trying to say, ‘oh we’re not gonna lose that many, oh yes you’ll be covered if you have a pre-existing condition.’ The terms of the debate are entirely on the grounds of the liberal argument that everybody ought to have insurance.”
Whether the healthcare bill passes the Senate or not, Krauthammer contents the United States has officially left the land of the “radical individualist.”
Obamacare was/is a disaster and certainly NOT AFFORDABLE! I know people who don’t have insurance due to it doubling in price. And others fined for not having any!
