Dr. Ezekiel ‘Death Panel’ Emanuel: Bill Clinton Has a Point About Obamacare
“No one ever claimed the law was perfect”
Obamacare architect Dr. Ezekiel ‘Death Panel’ Emanuel is back. This guy has an amazing ability to blame all the problems of Obamacare on everyone but the party which passed it and the president it’s named for.
He also agrees with some of Bill Clinton’s recent remarks on the law.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Obamacare Architect on Bill Clinton’s Criticisms: ‘I Think He Has a Point’
Clinton castigated the Affordable Care Act on Oct. 3 during a campaign stop for Hillary Clinton, ripping the law for causing spiked premiums and limited coverage for those who did not qualify for the law’s subsidies.
Emanuel said no one ever claimed the law was “perfect” and “tweaks” needed to be made. Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo pointed out it was not only conservatives criticizing the law, playing the clip of Clinton’s comments.
“You’ve got this crazy system where all of a sudden 25 million more people have health care and then the people that are out there busting it, sometimes 60 hours a week, wind up with their premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half,” Clinton said. “It’s the craziest thing in the world.”
Clinton later walked back the remarks and insisted he supports the law.
Emanuel responded that Clinton was one of the “sharpest” people on health care policy.
“So you agree with what he said, then?” Bartiromo asked.
“Wait a second,” Emanuel said. “If you listen to the full thing that he said, I think he has a point, which is that for Americans between 250 percent of the poverty line and 400 percent of the poverty line, roughly $50,000 to $100,000, we need to bolster the subsidies in the individual market.”
Here he is on the FOX Business Network blaming Republicans and employers for the rising cost of healthcare premiums.
The president has also been saying some strange things about Obamacare lately.
The Daily Caller reports:
Obama Compares Obamacare To Phones That Literally Explode
President Barack Obama compared Obamacare to phones that literally burst into flames at a Thursday speech at Miami Dade College.
Touting his landmark healthcare bill to a crowd of thousands, Obama said: “The problems that may have arisen from the Affordable Care Act is not because government is too involved in the process. The problem is, is that we have not reached everybody and pulled them in. When one of these companies comes out with a new smartphone and it had a few bugs, what do they do? They fix it. They upgrade — unless it catches fire, and they just — (laughter) — then they pull it off the market.”

Obamacare is the bastard offspring of the Democrat’s willingness to mau-mau and deceive the American people and the Progressive hubris that only they have the wherewithal to solve complex public policy questions. The arrogance of this guy is breath-taking.
Why Trump hasn’t been beating Clinton over the head with this every day is beyond me.
“Touting his landmark healthcare bill to a crowd of thousands, Obama said: “The problems that may have arisen from the Affordable Care Act is not because government is too involved in the process.”
No Mr. President, that is precisely the problem and it was by design! The ACA was never about providing affordable health care, that’s the convenient lie, it was all about setting the American public up for the government to take nearly complete control of our lives! This is why it is so important that Clinton does not win in November and/or the dems retake Congress. You know Single Payer is coming if they do win!
He is just a member of the pack of liars!
Lie after lie after lie! And the biggest liar is close to being president! So dam depressing.
Ah, yes, Herr Doctor. The problem isn’t with the underlying philosophy of the system or its implementation, it’s that more control is needed. Control of it all, eh Herr Doctor!
He wants more boon for the doggle. The answer to every failed program.
Dammit Maria changed!
We are all just lab rats in his social experiments.

Here is another spin by the madman on the glory of Obamacare:
The madman said he wanted to die at 75.
“No one ever claimed the law was perfect.” I’d say keeping your doctor and saving $2500 a year was a claim that would be hard to top.
