Momentary Observation- Health Insurance Costs Increasing Again

11 November 2016

Sorry, but I have to ask.  Just when is my health care coverage going to become affordable?

With that question asked, once again, I found shockingly honest comments on ObamaCare by none other than Bill Clinton. I am not sure why they are showing up now, a month later, but they are. Here are the important lines from an article at TheNewAmerican.com:

On Monday, October 3, former President Bill Clinton, in a series of unexpected and perhaps unscripted comments while stumping on behalf of his wife’s presidential campaign in Flint, Michigan, took the political world by surprise when he singled out Obama­Care for scathing criticism. “You’ve got this crazy system where all of a sudden, 25 million more people have health care, and then the people who are out there busting it, sometimes 60 hours a week, wind up with their premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half and it’s the craziest thing in the world,” Clinton told a crowd of supporters.

He added that “the current system works fine if you’re eligible for Medicaid, if you’re a lower-income working person, if you’re already on Medicare or if you get enough subsidies on a modest income that you can afford your health care.”

But overall, Clinton concluded, Obama­Care is hurting the very people it was intended to help, pointing out that “the people getting killed in this deal are the small-business people and individuals who make just a   little bit too much to get any of these subsidies.”

There you go, Bill Clinton’s comments no less. Here is the full article. Thank you to the Patriot Trading Group for bringing this to our attention.
