Obama: Obamacare “Is Working”

No, really

(The Hill) President Obama declared Tuesday that ObamaCare “is working” and that “we’re not going back,” as the White House looked to reboot its efforts to sell Americans on the president’s signature healthcare law.

If he means that 5.5 million were supposed to lose their health insurance, that the bulk of people attempting to sign up would be moved to Medicaid, that premiums and deductibles would skyrocket while networks would be limited, and that tens of millions are looking at seeing their employer based insurance drastically changed and made more expensive or having it cancelled, then, yeah, it’s working. If he means lying about the law again and again and again, yeah, that’s working.

Unshockingly, he attacked Republicans for wanting to do away with this terrible law, as I predicted yesterday (though, with Obama, predicting he will attack Republicans is like saying the Sun will rise)

Earlier Tuesday, McConnell said the president’s “campaign-style event wouldn’t solve the myriad problems facing consumers under ObamaCare.”

“The American people have been learning about the impact ObamaCare will have on individuals and families in the form of higher premiums, disrupted insurance, and lost jobs – more broken promises from the administration. And they’re becoming increasingly aware of the fact ObamaCare is broken beyond repair,” McConnell said.

Hopefully, Obama will continue his partisan push on Obamacare, tanking his ratings further, and, better yet, cratering the chance for the Dems to hold on to the Senate.
