The gall of this guy…
JOSE DIAZ-BALART, TELEMUNDO: The Affordable Care Act takes effect next month, The latest NBC/Wall Street Journal poll shows Americans oppose it, believing it will produce damaging results. Fifty-two percent believe the law will raise their health care costs. Is everybody wrong?
PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: Yes, they are.
OBAMA: The problem we have is that over the last four years billions of dollars have been spent misinforming people about what this law is about. All of the horror stories that were talked about have not come true. It is going to be a good deal and we expect that once it is fully implemented — a year from now, two years from now, five years from now — people will look back and, they’ll be asking what was the argument about. Why is everybody fighting this so much?
Video at the link. The president’s law has never had anything but partisan support and has never enjoyed majority support. It has been blamed for many Americans having their work hours cut to below 30 per week, and for losing their health care. Small business owners have said that Obamacare is a disincentive to hire new workers for years now.
And yet unless something major happens very soon, Obamacare will go into effect October 1.
