Donald Trump Drops Truth Bomb: "ObamaCare is Dead!"
To paraphrase the great Irish philosophers House of Pain, word to your moms, Donald Trump came to drop bombs. And the mainstream media's got more fake news than the Bible has Psalms.
Ok, now I'm just trying too hard, but this Trump clip really is sweet...
I also want people to know that ObamaCare is dead. It's a dead health care plan, it's not even a health care plan, frankly, and I watched the architect of the plan yesterday, I watched the old clip where he said 'the American people are stupid to have voted for it.' I watched Bill Clinton saying 'this is the craziest thing I've ever seen,' and only because everyone knows its on its last dying feet, the fake news is trying to say good things about it, okay? Fake media, and there is no good news about ObamaCare.
ObamaCare is dead and unless we gave it massive subsidies in a year from now or six months from now, it's not even going to be here. So when they say, 'oh, more people are on the plan,' there's not going to be any people on the plan. I was in Tennessee, I was just telling the folks, and half of the state has no insurance company and the other half is going to lose the insurance company. The people don't know what to do, it's a disaster. ObamaCare is dead. Nothing to do with these people, nothing to do with me. It's on respirator and it's just about ready to implode. Now, we could wait for six months or a year and let it happen. It's not the right thing to do for the people.
Side note, would it be hackish to call it O'BamaCare today? Asking for a friend...who totally writes for a different site.
All joking aside, this has been a long time coming (see Crowder Rips and Debunks Vox’s Obamacare Propaganda and HuffPo PANICS: Trump Could ‘Easily’ Destroy Obamacare). The big question is what Republicans now replace it with. Because if I had my druthers (people still say "druthers" yes?), Obamacare wouldn't be replaced at all. Let's just repeal the tanker spill, and let the market replace it with a better product. A better product at this point could be a rhino with a hernia for all I care.
I realize it's a simplistic approach, the government getting the eff out of the way so the private sector can do its thing, but simple is usually a good place to start. Alas, smiling cingefests like Paul Ryan are out there trying to make names for themselves as the runner-ups to 2017's most hated comic villain. We don't need Obamacare replaced with RyanCare. Stop it.
We're going to keep hammering this point for as long as necessary: government has as much business in healthcare as a tadpole has in a college lecture circuit. Though to be fair, at least the tadpole knows a thing or two about growth. Which is more than I can say for college snowflakes. Maybe I'm onto something.
Digression, it happens. Back to the point. Here's hoping (and let's do our part by holding their footses to flames) we actually get a full repeal, NO replacement, on Obamacare. Related: Ted Cruz LOWERS THE BOOM, Commands Congress to Repeal ObamaCare.
Because socialism is supported by losers, for losers. Take it away, Ted.
