Howard Dean does have a record of telling the truth about Obamacare. He is the only Democrat who has admitted that Obamacare should have taken on tort reform, but didn’t, because the Democrats did not want to take on trial lawyers.

President Obama sold Obamacare as a program that would be deficit neutral and eventually bend the cost curve down so that it would save money. Many including myself never believed that. Now here is Democrat Howard Dean predicting that Obamacare will drive taxpayer costs up so sharply that it will create another crisis.

Under Obama, we already have some of the worst deficits in American history. Obama has racked up more debt by himself than all the previous presidents combined.

To recap: Thanks to Obamacare, millions of Americans are losing their healthcare and will have to pay more for worse coverage. Taxpayers will be on the hook for the subsidies that Obama keeps promising will lower premiums for many Americans. The resulting federal spending on these subsidies will not be deficit neutral. If Howard Dean is right, we will have a budget crisis to go along with the canceled insurance crisis and the embarrassing Healthcare.gov website debacle.

Will President Obama get around to issuing a half-hearted apology for that lie, too?

What about the Constitutional crisis when Dear Leader issues tax subsidies by EXECUTIVE ORDER because congress refuses to play ball....? Will they finally find the gonads to impeach him when he tells the house to pound sand?

Have you ever wondered, as I have, why Obama seems uncaring about his legacy and reputation as being the absolute worst President in American History? There may be an answer.
On the dais and on the golf course he sees Bill Clinton, a President who committed perjury, a felony, and workplace sexual harassment. Is Clinton shunned by his betters? Is he treated like a pariah? Not at all. He is treated like the grand old man of the Democratican party, saluted and praised, respected and envied. Then of course there is the manslaughter man Ted Kennedy, rest his soul [which one doubts].
No wonder Obama is unconcerned. The worse you were, why, all the better you are now. It's the librul way.
And as if one Carter wasn't/isn't enough, a new one is about to enter stage left.

On what evidence does Dean assume that Obama will be bothered by a budget crises and the skyrocketing cost of his pet entitlement? The rest of us will be outraged (and vindicated), but Obama will simply deny the obvious and/or blame the Republicans. In addition to his other failings, The One is boringly predictable.

Any narcissistic pathological liar is predicable. In this case it includes a "Cold Soul" who will ALWAYS put himself and his aspirations ahead of morals and ethics and others. I, me, my, mine are his favorite words for he truly believes that ALL is his.
History has shown us where leaders(?) with these characteristics have taken their countries. It ain't pretty, folks.

One former governor of a thinly populated state criticizes ObamaCare and gets razzed mercilessly. Another former governor of a thinly populated state criticizes ObamaCare and the media listen and pay attention.

One was a nominee on a presidential ticket; the other ran for president but was laughed out of the race after losing an early primary.

America's media establishment: where failure is a media enhancer -- the more spectacular, the better.

These are actually tax credits. This is going to make the Earned Income Credit look like lunch money.

Obama being unconcerned about his legacy could be because of the dictatorial powers he has given himself through Executive Orders.
He has given himself the authority to call an emergency, authority to declare Martial Law, suspend the Constitution, suspend elections and be "Dear Leader" for life. All that he needs is an "event", be it real or be it a "false flag". Therefore, his motto should be, "What, me worry?".

Dean is not only right, but I'm in favor of it - over the current situation. Eliminate the mandates and have the feds fund any deficit. Period. A mere $50b/year would put it about on a par with Medicare Part D, right? Let the insurance companies fight with the feds about the exact numbers, LOL, but keep individual citizens the h*** away from such details.

Such a plan could probably get enough Republican support to pass both houses.

Cut a bunch of the "foreign aid" that we send to countries who consistently vote against us in the United Nations and redirect those funds to cover the cost. Simple, eh?

Apparently you think the feds have some independent stash of money from which they can pay for your healthcare? Don't you realize that the federal government gets money from us taxpayers?

The amount of income tax collected each month goes toward paying the interest on the debt. It is not enough to cover the entire interest, so some of the taxes from corporations, imports, exports, etc. contribute. Our monthly interest payment is about $22 Billion and government income is slightly over $200 Billion. This should make anyone aware that we were NEVER in danger of defaulting on our debt payment unless we intentionally chose to default. Just another Dumbocrap scare tactic that the RHINO's allowed to be effective.

When Obamacare is implemented, there will be no insurance companies left.
That was his (leftists) plan the whole time.

I never considered it deficit neutral. The president's whole claim about it being affordable is based upon the tax breaks/subsidies that can be nowhere as generous as he implies except for the poorest without adding considerably to the deficit.
