Obamacare, a/k/a ObamaScrare, was self-destructive from its start as an idea. And, the method by which it was passed in the House and Senate only made matters worse. (You have to pass the bill to know what's in it), the new standard of Democrats and the Obama Administration for doing the business of Congress, was the hallmark phrase of this disaster of a program -- often sold with lies, deceit, and pure ignorance.
The comparisons to the early days of Social Security and Medicare were utter garbage. Both were though through with greater detail, both were debated in Congress, and both welcomed professional observations on all sides.
Not so Obamacare. Like Obama, it was shoved down our throats by Obama and Democrats in Congress, and it robbed Social Security and Medicare of over a billion dollars to help finance it - also denied by the Failure in Chief.
No reasonable person can possibly, with a clear conscience, blame EITHER the medical community, the insurance industry, or politics. THE DEMOCRATS HAD THE WHITE HOUSE, THE CONGRESS, AND THE SENATE WHEN OBAMACARE WAS BORN, AND CANNOT POSSIBLY BLAME ITS UTTER FAILURES ON "POLITICS" OR ANYONE ELSE.
