Robert Reich Says on ABC’s ‘This Week’ … People will “Stop Complaining” About Obamacare Once Enrollment Numbers Increase … Doubt It!!!
The Obama minions continue to spread the Obamacare BS, Defending the indefensible …
Former Clinton Secretary of Labor Robert Reich appeared on ABC’s ‘This Week’ over the weekend and said that the American people will “stop complaining” about Obamacare once the enrollment numbers increase. Really, wanna bet? So that’s what Democrats think that American’s are doing is just complaining? The American people have been lied to, have lost their insurance plans that they liked, have lost their doctors and hospitals, have been forced to buy a product in Obamacare that they do not like, have no idea whether they have coverage even if they did sign up, have higher premiums and higher deductibles and Reich thinks that the complaints will stop.
Huh, I really don’t it. Personally, I believe that it has just begun. Reich calls Obama’s LIE that Obama made that “if you like your healthcare plan you can keep tour healthcare plan, period” just a mistake. Sorry, this was not a mistake, it was an intention fraud of the American people by Obama and Democrats.
Who knew Cokie Roberts would be the voice of reason and rebut Reich’s comment with, “Unless a year from now, people start seeing their employers dropping their health insurance. And then the — you’ll start to have a whole another wave of reaction against it.” Yup, and that will make the 5+ million people who lost their insurance, where Barack Obama promised they could keep it look like child’s play.
ROBERT REICH: Well, justified, not justified. What the president wanted to talk about this week was the fact that there are 350,000, 360,000 enrollees in November, new enrollees in November at the — on the — the healthcare.com.
And, in fact, he can’t talk about that.
I mean the attacks on ObamaCare, on the Affordable Care Act, have been absolutely relentless. It was a terrible mistake for him to say what he did.
But, you know, after a while, you’ve got to look at the fact that we have one of the most important reforms of the health care system of the United States ever enacted.
KARL: Is it going to be seen that way a year from now?
REICH: I think it is, because at the present rate of enrollment, we’re going to have over a million people enrolled by January and people are going to stop complaining.
COKIE ROBERTS: Unless a year from now, people start seeing their employers dropping their health insurance. And then the — you’ll start to have a whole another wave of reaction against it.
Reich may want to read the following AP-GfK Poll.
Americans who already have health insurance are blaming President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul for their rising premiums and deductibles, and overall 3 in 4 say the rollout of coverage for the uninsured has gone poorly.
An Associated Press-GfK poll finds that health care remains politically charged going into next year’s congressional elections. Keeping the refurbished HealthCare.gov website running smoothly is just one of Obama’s challenges, maybe not the biggest.
The poll found a striking level of unease about the law among people who have health insurance and aren’t looking for any more government help. Those are the 85 percent of Americans who the White House says don’t have to be worried about the president’s historic push to expand coverage for the uninsured.
In the survey, nearly half of those with job-based or other private coverage say their policies will be changing next year — mostly for the worse. Nearly 4 in 5 (77 percent) blame the changes on the Affordable Care Act, even though the trend toward leaner coverage predates the law’s passage.
Sixty-nine percent say their premiums will be going up, while 59 percent say annual deductibles or copayments are increasing.
