from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:
According to leading polls of Democratic primary voters, health care is still one the top issues. And it took center stage, as a new human right, by means of the new progressive socialist tag-team, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, during Tuesday’s Democratic debate.
On night 2, there was not the unbridled enthusiasm for the Sanders-Warren Medicare for All scheme, as Joe Biden threw cold water on it and defended Obamacare. But he appears to be one of only a few. To many of the rest, it’s like Obamacare never existed – like it had no positive effect on “health care” at all.
It didn’t, by the way.
And here we are today. It’s déjà-vu all over again (h/t: Yogi Berra). Almost a decade after Obamacare was signed into law, the issue is still front and center.
And why is that? Wasn’t passing Obamacare supposed to alleviate all our health-care concerns? Isn’t that how it was billed?
Of course it was. It was going to solve all the problems created by the evil private sector. Yet here they are complaining of the same issues.
Now many of the Dems running for president have leap-frogged Obamacare and signed on to single-payer government-run health care, or Medicare for All.
It’s a tacit, yet unspoken, admission that Obamacare is a failed experiment. For those of us who have followed this saga, we knew this day would come. We just didn’t know when.
During the Tuesday debate, Bernie Sanders exclaimed, “Right now, we have a dysfunctional health-care system – 87 million uninsured or underinsured, 500,000 Americans every year going bankrupt because of medical bills, 30,000 people dying. …”
Now where have we heard this before? That’s right. The same was said about private health insurance when they were pushing for Obamacare.
