Posted on 06/22/2017 2:08:06 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
President Barack Obama says the Senate's GOP-written health care bill will cause millions of families to lose health care coverage.
Obama called Senate Republicans' health care bill a "massive transfer of wealth from middle-class and poor families to the richest people in America." He also says it "hands enormous tax cuts to the rich and to the drug and insurance industries, paid for by cutting health care for everybody else."
The former president says amending the GOP-written bill "cannot change the fundamental meanness at the core of this legislation."
"Simply put, if there's a chance you might get sick, get old, or start a family this bill will do you harm."

I’m sure he spent all morning reading it before he opined.
Just STFU and disappear.
How does he have ANY credibility on this issue? Yeah, I can keep my policy and my doctors, except it’s costing THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS A YEAR more than it did before.
No worries Obunghole. Everybody saved 2500 a year and kept their doctors and health-plans.
BHO, shut up and croak already!
Obama just makes up stuff like he did about Obamacare.
I thought former presidents were supposed to shut the hell up once they leave office?
I love it because there is nothing more powerful than a POTUS, and nothing more useless than a former POTUS, and Obama doesn’t know that yet.
Obama is like the Captain of the Titanic lambasting the Iceberg for ruining his Legacy.
I am really enjoying the winning every day, day in and day out.
Today I had an ear to ear grin nevause of the HCB and the presses reavtion to a presser with no camera’s. The press was howling and that was so funny
“We didnt fight for the Affordable Care Act for more than a year in the public square for any personal or political gain”
You have to pass the bill to find out what is in it.
“Thousands upon thousands of Americans, including Republicans, threw themselves into that collective effort, not for political reasons”
Not ONE republican voted for the bill.
“For the first time, more than ninety percent of Americans know the security of health insurance....Paying more, or being denied insurance altogether due to a preexisting condition we made that a thing of the past.”
Lie. No more people cannot afford the premiums and deductibles. There is no health insurance security in obamacare.
“and that if Republicans could put together a plan that is demonstrably better than the improvements we made to our health care system, that covers as many people at less cost, I would gladly and publicly support it.”
Lie. “We won.” Republicans were not allowed input into obamacare.
“So I still hope that there are enough Republicans in Congress who remember that public service is not about sport or notching a political win”
Bawaahahahahahahaha. They, AND YOU care only about $port and political wins.
“the legislation rushed through the House and the Senate without public hearings or debate... It would raise costs, reduce coverage, roll back protections, and ruin Medicaid as we know it. “
You’re talking about your obamacare legislation here, right??
“The Senate bill, unveiled today, is not a health care bill. Its a massive transfer of wealth from middle-class and poor families to the richest people in America”
Class warfare, blah blah blah, class warfare.
“Discrimination based on pre-existing conditions could become the norm again.”
Lie. DJT pledged to keep pre-existing condition coverage and he will. That’s why developing this legislation is so difficult.
“To put the American people through that pain while giving billionaires and corporations a massive tax cut in return thats tough to fathom. “
Class warfare, blah blah blah, class warfare.
“That might take some time and compromise between Democrats and Republicans. But I believe thats what people want to see. I believe it would demonstrate the kind of leadership that appeals to Americans across party lines”
Like you did, zero??
“After all, this debate has always been about something bigger than politics. Its about the character of our country who we are, and who we aspire to be. “
The character of our country is not socialism, zero. And we don’t want to aspire to any of your socialist aspirations.
GTH, zero. Or please, just go away.
Even with the flawed Republican Plan, people won’t lose their ACCESS to Healthcare, they MAY lose getting it for free on the backs of the Taxpayers.
As my Mother always said, you help People who CAN’T help themselves, not People who WON’T help themselves.
No more people should be NOW more people.
Poor Barry Soetero Hussein Obama, towel boy of the bathhouse, must be tough watching his precious “legacy” being destroyed.
Embrace the suck Obozo, you deserve it.
Why in the hell is he opining? Zero respect
