Obama, Former Chief Health Official Already Floating Public Option To Replace Failing Obamacare

Image result for obamacare is failing exactly the way critics said it wouldPresident Barack Obama and former top Obamacare official Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel are now floating the idea of a public option as an answer to the seemingly inevitable collapse of Obama’s landmark health care legislation.

Obamacare has seen better days: It’s had 16 health care co-ops go kaput, including in New York, some major health care providers are pulling out, andanalysts have almost nothing rosy to say about the legislation in both the near and long term. As a result, Obama and his surrogates are scrambling to shore up the sinking ship.

For his part, Emanuel wrote a piece for the Washington Post Aug. 22 in which he acknowledged there were problems with Obamacare and provided a five-prong solution to fixing them. Most important of these solutions, a public option to the healthcare exchanges. He says that “we should consider a public option,” because “consumers should never be subject to the whims of insurer withdrawals or withdrawal threats.”

Emanuel’s sentiment was an echo of Obama’s own words in an Aug. 2 piece for the Journal of the American Medical Association. He said the path to continued progress is through “continuing to implement the Health Insurance Marketplaces and delivery system reform, increasing federal financial assistance for Marketplace enrollees,” and by “introducing a public plan option in areas lacking individual market competition.”

The next step, after the anticipated FAILURE of ObamaCare, more government control from a government run "universal healthcare system" - government runs things so well, all around the world.  Just look at the complete "success" of the perfect example of government run healthcare - the Veterans Affairs HealthCare System.  Its users just love it!

Replace it with what? Do we need more geniuses determining what is in our best interest while they exempt themselves from it?

the plan was for the exchanges to fail then bring in single payer which is even worse   VOTE TRUMP

muzziecare, the worst fraud ever perpertrated on the American People. peabrainlosi's comment, "lets pass the bill first, and then we can read what is in it."  The dc dictator's "individual mandate" enforced by the irs?  The effin libbles can't see what he is?!  Dumb as a stump dumb oh crates! Last ditch effort to pull the highly unaffordable healthcare out of the nosedive, and to restart the engines after a flameout. The house of cards is coming down and their little tinpot woodenheaded dummie doesn't know whether or not to spit or wind his watch.

Interesting, but I'm afraid it is just another step, in the wrong direction.

Single payer was the goal all along.

always their answer to incompetence                    more govt interference

Hmmmm maybe Trump should talk about the danger of single payer healthcare- so people understand that it is NOT good. Too many think it is all the evil insurance companies' fault. Yes, insurance companies did hop onto the Obamacare bandwagon (Obama knew he needed their help to get it going- that jumping right in to single payer may not go over with Americans, so he had the first step "Obamacare" -  but many people do not realize that single payer means single provider, and that if the government says no to the operation they need, that is it- no place else to go!

Dr Ezekiel Emmanuel also said that no one should live past age 75....


OH, OH ......... i'm in trouble ......... I'm 76 !


Terrence, hang in there We Are Going To Get It Done. PRESIDENT TRUMP

He should try to tell that to the 95 year old lady who sat behind me in church yesterday.

CNN’s Anderson Cooper said during an interview with Univision anchor Jorge Ramos that he found the demographic decline of white people “exciting”.

“The idea that, you know, whites will not be the majority, I mean, that’s — it’s an exciting transformation of the country, it’s an exciting evolution and you know, progress of our country in many different ways,” said Cooper.

Ramos agreed that whites becoming a minority in America was inevitable and a positive development.

The Judge@V8POW

Anderson Cooper barely able to contain his excitement about Whites becoming a minority.

Not thrilled about being replaced in the country your ancestors founded: you're a "Supremacist"

Understand White People, you're already in a race war.

“There’s nothing really they can do against this incredible demographic revolution. And in 2044, everyone is going to be a minority,” he said.

The media has repeatedly asserted that even raising the “conspiracy theory” of “the great replacement” or the demographic decline of white people puts you on a par with mass shooters and terrorists.

However, it’s apparently completely fine to talk about the issue so long as you proclaim the demographic decline of whites to be a positive thing.
