Speaking to reporters in Germany on Monday, President Obama glibly declared that his transformation of America’s health care system is “working.” He chuckled over the absence of predicted “horrors” from the change. “None” exist, he asserted.
His much-advertised empathy doesn’t extend to the countless Americans who have seen their health care costs increase as their coverage decreases. These aren’t “horrors” in Obama’s mind, just problems Americans deserve to bear for the sake of the collective.
He still speaks as if his law produces only winners and no losers. It clearly doesn’t improve health care “for all.” It may improve it for some, but even that is a dubious claim, given the significant number of Americans who have lost the coverage Obama falsely promised they could keep and found themselves scrambling for lesser coverage many doctors won’t service.
