Ouch. Even Minnesota Dem Governor Says ObamaCare 'No Longer Affordable'...
Remember when Bill Super-Duper-Democrat Clinton told us all about how crappy ObamaCare is? He did two times, to be thorough (see ObamaCare Gets Completely Destroyed by... Bill Clinton?! and Bill Clinton Doubles Down, Reminds Voters How Much ObamaCare Sucks...).
Minnesota's Democrat governor on Wednesday said Obamacare is "no longer affordable to increasing numbers of people" - the latest sign of Democrat's growing concern about the law's rising insurance costs.
Gov. Mark Dayton's criticism comes as his state faces massive rate hikes and shrinking competition in its Obamacare insurance marketplace next year. Premiums... will increase on average by 50 percent to 67 percent next year. He said the law... has "some serious blemishes and serious deficiencies."
While premiums shot up higher than Tim Kaine's left eyebrow, coverage options continue to suck. So much for "affordable." It's getting so bad even Obama's fellow Democrats can't take it anymore. They see the problem and they're speaking up. Hats off to them for daring to make a peep about it, but hats back on because they're still Democrats. Not sorry. You still got us into this mess.
This is what conservatives have been saying for ages: ObamaCare doesn't work. But more importantly, socialized healthcare doesn't work... Like, at all. See, that's where Democrats get hung up. They know the ACA is failing, but they still like the idea of universal healthcare. The worst part? They then go on to blame ObamaCare's shortcomings on Republicans... Because reasons.
Although Democrats don't understand why the ACA doesn't work (or at least they're "pretending" not to know), it's still important to note they know it's not working. Because it turns out those "free" stuffs aren't really free at all. Even if we may not all agree on the solution for now, at least we can all agree that Obama's brainchild was less "brilliant" and more like the result of a lobotomy. Baby steps.
Of course the leftists' typical solution to a problem caused by government? Another government "solution." In this case, single payer, nationalized healthcare. Yep, a leftist will trot in with an idea, convince the masses it's a good one, screw everything up, then offer another idea to fix the first one. And the masses will will be convinced.
Try not to step off a cliff, even if you think it's a better solution.
