WATCH: Obama IMPLIES Obamacare Hasn’t Worked Because Of ‘RACISM’ – He Also Says …

Poor Obama, the one thing in his presidency that isn’t ‘someone else’s fault’ REALLY sucks.

“The Affordable Care Act has done what it was designed to do,” Obama said during a nearly hourlong speech at Miami Dade College. “It gave us affordable health care. So what’s the problem? Why is there still such a fuss? Well, part of the problem is a Democratic president named Barack Obama passed the law. That’s just the truth.”

But Obamacare has been beset by bad news in recent months that goes beyond partisan griping. A trio of national insurers are largely abandoning the exchanges. Premiums are soaring in states across the country, in some cases by more than 50 percent. Enrollment in the Obamacare markets is stuck at roughly half what was projected.

Republicans have seized on the law’s struggles as validation of their doomsday predictions about its viability. Even Democrats are struggling to defend the law. Former President Bill Clinton this month railed against ongoing affordability concerns for middle-income Americans, and Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton recently made national headlines by declaring that the Affordable Care Act is “no longer affordable” for too many. —Politico

In addition, Obama reiterated support for a government-run insurance plan that could bolster competition in the Obamacare marketplaces. Without offering specifics, Obama also called for additional subsidies to make coverage more affordable. Both ideas have encountered strong resistance from Republicans.

OK, Obama, is THIS what it ‘was designed to do?’

‘Premiums doubled, coverage cut in half?’

That’s no Republican rant, it’s the very people YOU endorsed as a successor are saying this.

“Just because a lot of the Republican criticism has proven to be false and politically motivated doesn’t mean there aren’t some legitimate concerns about how the law is working now,” he said.

Mental note… Bill Clinton is a partisan ‘Republican’. Doubtless, part of that Vast Right-wing Conspiracy we’ve heard about.

In addition, Obama reiterated support for a government-run insurance plan that could bolster competition in the Obamacare marketplaces. Without offering specifics, Obama also called for additional subsidies to make coverage more affordable. Both ideas have encountered strong resistance from Republicans.

That would be the ‘single-payer’ option he’s been disavowing any support of… like this quote here.

Oops… that’s his ‘private’ policy.

Here’s his ‘public’ one:

What are not legitimate concerns are those being put forward claiming a public option is somehow a Trojan horse for a single-payer system. I’ll be honest. There are countries where a single-payer system may be working. But I believe — and I’ve even taken some flak from members of my own party for this belief — that it is important for us to build on our traditions here in the United States. So, when you hear the naysayers claim that I’m trying to bring about government-run health care, know this – they are not telling the truth. —Politico

Which ‘Obama’ should we believe?

Is this just him setting the stage for a ‘national conversation about single-payer health care’? Isn’t that EXACTLY what Republicans objected to with Obamcare?

Share if this is unfolding just like Republicans predicted, in all the worst ways.
