Obama: 'Going to Look Back' in 5 or 10 Years, Say ACA 'Was a Monumental Achievement'
CNS News ^ | 2/15/14 | Susan Jones

Posted on 02/15/2014 1:53:32 PM PST by Libloather

(CNSNews.com) - President Obama told House Democrats on Friday that the health care law they passed without a single Republican vote in 2010 will prove itself -- five or ten years from now.

"And I just want to say, thank you for all of you hanging in there tough on an issue that I think 10 years from now, five years from now, we're going to look back and say this was a monumental achievement that could not have happened had it not been for this caucus."

House Democrats face midterm elections, not in five or ten years, but in November, and many are said to be nervous about the botched rollout of Obama's signature health care law.

The Soviet purges and the Final Solution were monumental achievements five or ten years out. Nobody seriously thinks they were good things.

A lie, from a person who should be impeached, about legislation that must be repealed.

I think 10 years from now, five years from now

while the communists in Russia wore red shirts and had five-years plans, the Nazis in Germany wore brown shirts and had four-year plans.

Yes, in destroying the Democrat Party; about the same time it's repealed.

“A Monumental Achievement” ?

What a coincidence.

That’s exactly what Joseph Stalin said about the Russian Revolution.

I wondered something quite similar.

Could Mister Obama be describing a Five Year Plan?

Since conservatives only want to sit on their collective asses and be the smartest people in the room instead of standing up and fighting, this truly could be a future headline.

ObamaCare is the biggest cluster-FAIL in US government history.

Before ObamaCare, there were over 1,100 insurance companies in the health market. Now there are 30. Now there are 463 counties in the US with only one health underwriter.

Furthermore, each of these 1,100+ insurance companies had sufficient IT systems, sufficient sales and back-office support staff and were all paying claims on a timely basis, backed up by a state regulator who was happy to enforce the letter of the law.

ObamaCare cased the trashing and total waste of all of these system and facilities, and has spent billions in a futile attempt to replicate their function, all in the name of insuring the uninsured.

Cluster-FAIL!

And if we have the same press then as we do now, they will never remember he said this. Especially if it is the smoking mess we expect it to be.

Yeah, right. I just found out my insurance company just raised my monthly premiums from $800 to $1500 to come into compliance with the ACA’s stupid requirements to cover everything under the sun. I hope the narcissist comes to realize everyone hates his friggin arse and he offs himself.

Obama 2013: When this law goes into effect this year, Republicans are going to look silly.

Obama 2014: I think 10 years from now... we’re going to look back and say this was a monumental achievement

I think this is a golden opportunity.

We need to start referring to Obama as “The president who destroyed American socialism once and for all time.”

Just saying this should make leftists ulcers gurgle.

Unless it’s repealed, within 10 years Obamacare will bear little resemblance to whatever is in the ACA. Once the repeal window closes; the only acceptable political question will be: “how do we improve our health care system?”. No one will be asking about repeal. Hundreds of thousands of people will spend their careers trying to “improve” things.

While it’s impossible to predict the details; here’s my prediction about the main fix: more money. Much more money. An ever-increasing amount of money. Money to reduce premiums, money to reduce or eliminate deductibles and co-pays.

Other easy predictions: death panels, and many other forms of rationing.
