Robert Reich: ‘Absurd’ to Say Obamacare Was ‘A Burden to People’


Former Labor secretary Robert Reich  says that it’s absurd to say that Obamacare was a “burden to people.”

When Obamacare came out, just the rule of the 40% excise tax on companies who gave good health insurance to their employees. Obviously, that rule alone was going to ruin the healthcare insurance system. Any company in their right mind would eliminate or dilute their health insurance plans….And they did….And we will NEVER get that genie back in the bottle!!

But no one suffered under Obamacare? Ok Mr Reich, whatever you say…


[e2i]From Breitbart:

During a discussion with economist Stephen Moore, Reich said, “Steve Moore, you said a moment ago that, actually, a lot of people are suffering a hardship under Obamacare, under the Affordable Care Act. I don’t know what you’re talking about. I mean, 20 million people, or 24 million, if you believe the Congressional Budget Office, would have lost their health insurance because of the former Republican plan.

We don’t know how many millions are going to lose their health insurance now. Those subsidies, by the way, kept up with increases in premiums. Health insurance costs are going up all over the country, even for people who are not in Obamacare. That is a problem, but it’s a problem that is a generic problem right now. We’ve to get control of those health insurance costs. But how can you possibly say that Obamacare, the Affordable Care Act, actually was cruel or a burden to people? That’s absurd.”[/e2i]

Well Mr. Reich, have you ever, ever had to pay for your own insurance? No, you haven’t, so you have no clue as to what a burden it is for people, single, or with families, to have to pay for insurance out of a paycheck that is probably just over the poverty levels, so just shut up about it not being a burden on people!
