Skip to comments.Obama: 'Going to Look Back' in 5 or 10 Years, Say ACA 'Was a Monumental Achievement'

(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.

And by that time, everyone will be dead.
Yup! He sounds like he’s on the “happy smoke” again.
The Soviet purges and the Final Solution were monumental achievements five or ten years out. Nobody seriously thinks they were good things.
But those who would give such comments will be saying them in Chinese by wasteland fires.
A lie, from a person who should be impeached, about legislation that must be repealed.
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.
In 5 or 10 years, when all the waivers expire, Barry?
When he is in Iran 10 years from now,he will be celebrating the destruction of America brought about in part by Obamacare,that is what he meant
“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?
The man has not told it straight since he was elected.
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.
In 10 years people will spit and curse at the mention of Obama’s name...when the Political Commissar isn’t around to hear, of course.
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.
More like concrete overshoes.
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.
Obamacare does not survive 2017 no matter who is elected president.
It will go down as the main reason for Civil War; Part Deux
Nope, it was a monumental steaming pile of obama.
Crap, now he’s gonna have to move back some of the mandates another 10 years
It will go down as a monument to catastrophically bad legislation and exercise in dictatorial tyranny.
In 5 - 10 years, they will look back and say, “It was Obama’s ACA that finally caused the the total collapse of the USA economy, and the collapse of the nation itself soon thereafter.......”
Just like the Edsel was monumental!
Never mind... I think I know.
I've been saying that for years.
Heck, half of the Country already does!
This clown is the worst President ever.
Fond memories of the ACA...
...much like Hitler must have longed for the days of the Reichstag Fire as he sat in his Berlin bunker with the Rooskies closing in.
Maybe a monumental achievement in the destruction of America.
HAHAHA....yeah right! 0 is totally delusional. Wat too much chooming going on behind those closed doors...
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.
He’s still a member of the Choom Gang.
Man, that no account good for nothing poser sure can run his mouth.
More lies and BS.
He’s a legend in his own mind.
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.
Wow in De Nile!! Amazing!! And the House Democrats just sit and listen, right?
The difference between him and us - We don’t lie.
So if you like your Monumental Achievement,
you can’t have it, it does not nor ever will exist...
So the ACA is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO great, he has to keep UNLAWFULLY DELAYING the implementation.
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.
Perhaps, but most monuments I have seen up close are covered in a layer of pigeon poop.
There are monuments to great kings and there are monuments to great massacres.
Just what prediction has this man made that has come true? Remember what was supposed to happen to unemployment if we passed the stimulus bill?
