Did Obama Admit Obamacare Is Failing? 

Did Obama admit that Obamacare is failing? Because it really sounded a lot like he admitted that his pet project was an abject catastrophe.

An interesting report on ABC News this morning sure points in that direction, unless I am very much mistaken.  The soon-to-be-former President backtracked on the accessibility and effectiveness of Obamacare.

In a speech in Miami, Obama said the public option would “give folks more options in those places where there’s just not enough insurers to compete.”

But the president did not mention how during the 2009 negotiations over what’s now known as Obamacare the White House used the public option as a bargaining chip — dropping it as a non-negotiable in order to get moderate Democrats, like Nebraska’s then-Sen. Ben Nelson, to vote in favor of the law.

“The public option, whether we have it or we don’t have it, is not the entirety of health care reform,” Obama said in August 2009 during a town hall-style meeting in Colorado, according to The New York Times. “This is just one sliver of it, one aspect of it.”

Now, the president is citing the public option as one of three essential solutions to perfecting the law, along with more states expanding Medicaid and an expansion of tax credits for middle-class Obamacare enrollees.

Talk about shutting the barn door after the cow is out.

For years the unAffordable Care Act has bumped along like a car with three wheels.  It has been widely considered the worst thing to happen to the health care system in… well, forever, and many families have lost the low rates and excellent insurance companies they had previous to the passing of this ill-conceived law.

And now, 19 days before the presidential election he says the “public option” may be an option after all.

In other words, “You can pee on the fire now. My toast is done.”
