The American public continues to sour on President Barack Obama's signature health care overhaul, one littered with premium hikes, policy cancellations, delays and outright fabrications.
Bryan Cranston of Breaking Bad fame thinks ObamaCare is the highlight of the president's legacy.
The actor opened up about President Barack Obama during an appearance with Yahoo News' Katie Couric.
I personally believe that his health care program is fantastic. Yes, there are problems. Anything worth while is going to go through a growing pains period. But this is his legacy and I think its a great one because I dont think that basic health care should be a privilege of the rich. It should be a right to all, said the actor.
He also applauded Obama for using executive orders to get around Congress, something the actor says other presidents like John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson did when faced with political opposition. Obama, according to Cranston, should flex his executive muscle to increase the minimum wage, for example.

From the Couric interview,
Cranston: "Now is the time, to stake a claim, to leave your legacy..."
Also, Couric: "You might be getting a call from the white house saying, 'You're hired!' "
From the embedded link for the Examiner, their title,
Another mindless puppet cheerleader embraces using his public persona to shill for the faker in chief.
This hit me in the gut.
(oh...and who knew Katie Couric couldn't get any work other than Yahoo News??? LOL)
Seems like he was taking the drugs he was making.
Who is Bryan Cranston and why should I care what he thinks about anything? I never watched Breaking Bad and see no reason to take anything an actor says as being worthwhile except RR, Heston, Selleck, and the others I agree with. Yes I am two faced. I like smart people despise dummies.
Cranston would have been a big fan of King George III.
I liked Malcolm in the Middle and Breaking Bad but c’mon he’s a Hollywood actor so there’s a 99% chance he’s a liberal and so he is.
I thought Breaking Bad was brilliantly done.
What that has to do with politics is beyond me.
Being a talented actor, director, or producer doesn’t mean your political opinions are worth anything special.
Cranston just lost half of his admirers. He should’ve kept his politics to himself.
When are these most brilliant people in the world (Hollywood actors) going to learn to keep their big fat trap shut?
I love his acting, but I am dissapointed he is this stupid.
As are most people in the entertainment industry. Disappointing as always when an entertainer you enjoy is a liberal, but hardly surprising.
Sure he’s a great actor, but is ignorant regarding business and economics. What I’ve always found interesting is most all of the doctors I’ve met(I work in healthcare) tend to be liberals. I’d say 85% of them voted for 0bama. Many of them regret that decision. What’s even more interesting is those from other countries were the ones that supported him the least. I’ve heard a few of them remark about how they saw similar leaders/dictators in their home countries he reminded them of, and they came here hoping to get away from it. The most notable was one that remembered Castro ascending to power, and he said the similarities with his speeches were just scary.
I agree. His work in Breaking Bad was excellent. Now he is tainted, and future review of his craft will be with the mindset that his politics are influencing his performance. Too bad.
Would he support a conservative president using executive orders to bypass a liberal congress?
So, now, with this interview, he can prance around his millionaire hollywood friends and say: “see... I’m not racist.”
Wow, how disappointing.
Another fascist is born.
Hollywood actors make tons of money pretending to be someone else. Few have any expertise in running their own lives, but they are free to give their opinions which can be ridiculed or ignored.
Ronald Reagan was truly the exception to the rule.
Walter White’s been sampling his own product, I see.
Actors like Cranston can afford to live outside of the normal boundaries and are not directly affected by laws they support. Now, propose to take away the federal and state subsidies afforded the movie industry, and we might see another side of actors as their pay would be impacted. Perhaps his support is tied to political favoritism for the industry.
On top of that he’s a Dodger’s fan. That seals it, what an a******!
I haven’t watched Breaking Bad and definitely won’t now.
Send all your medical bills to this ahole..
My base reaction, too.
I searched FR for any evidence of his liberal leanings (/s) and found nothing but fawning over his acting (Breaking Bad, in particular).
I thought it needed to be OUT THERE for everyone to share, ya know?
I don't make a habit of departing with my hard-earned $$ to visit theaters very often (disappointing across the board, to say the least) but I'm fond of iMax and 3D. I'm neither in the habit of researching principal actors before seeing/buying a movie.
However, I AM in the habit of reacting to a performer publicly engaging in progressive politics by WITHHOLDING MY $$ FROM THEIR POCKETS.
Things like this can backfire. If you think about the role this actor is known for, a ruthless, drug manufacturing, psychopathic monster.
This matters for an odd reason. There are an uncomfortable number of people walking around, who more or less equate characters they see on television with the actors real lives.
TV doctors are frequently asked medical questions, the actor who played the angel of death on the show “Touched by an Angel”, still makes a lot of gullible people shake in their boots. It doesn’t help that his name is John Dye.
So, how many of these people do you think will be sold on Obamacare by a ruthless, drug manufacturing, psychopathic monster?
“I am not a ruthless, drug manufacturing, psychopathic monster, but I play one on television!”
Stupid actor from a stupid show.
Thankfully, I never saw a single episode, nor will I ever miss it. There is far more constructive things one can do with themselves then to watch/listen/participate in American Pop Culture. It's all about promoting liberal issues, and destroying the institutions that made this country great, nothing else.
Another slobbering Obamacult member who knows what The Won should do to all of us but will NEVER live by those same rules. The loudest supporters of Obama are the ones with the wealth to never be effected. Does anyone think Cranston will tolerate going through an exchange health program and not just pay cash? For supporting this monstrous criminal enerprise known as the Obamanistration, FU Cransten.
I enjoyed BB due to it’s twist on good vs. evil & the subtle statement(s) on the (failed) war on drugs.
Regardless, I’ll NEVER see the end of the series now; don’t care to anymore.
I hope others post when these actors choose to out themselves. I, for one, simply don’t have the time to prequalify my limited leisure/entertainment. Personal views I have no problem with; actors using their public name/face for politics have consequences and I react to that.
“Anything worth while is going to go through a growing pains period.”
Heck, ya have to break a few eggs to make an omelet. Who cares if the shattered eggs are just lives of the little peons.
“But this is his legacy and I think its a great one”
Bow down to Dear Leader! Seig Heil!
“because I dont think that basic health care should be a privilege of the rich. It should be a right to all, said the actor.”
So, you think it is an individual right for folks to demand that others offer them a service? What do you propose we do if a doctor doesn’t want to be a doctor any longer? What do you do with the nurse that has already worked 20 hours that day and wants to quit seeing those demanding her service? How about if we do not have enough doctors to meet demand? Do you propose that we mandate the “smart” class to enter medical school?
Let me summarize that for ya Brian, you can not believe that “health care is an individual right” without believing that someone else utilizes his talent, time and labor to provide that right to those demanding it. In other words, you believe in slavery! To you “to be enslaved is liberating!”
Just another mush head actor. Move along, nothing to see here.
He is a meth head : )
Walter dies. He is killed by a member of the death panel.
Spoiler is forgiven. BOTTOMS UP!
