Even Mike Tyson Understands that Obamacare Isn't Working

The point of this post isn’t to turn former heavyweight boxing champion and ear-biter Mike Tyson into a political prognosticator. The point is to note that while the left’s leading lights — Ezra Klein, Matt Yglesias, etc — don’t get or won’t admit that Obamacare is a pile of fail, this guy who took quite a few punches to the head does get it. He appeared on Piers Morgan’s show and managed to make a little sense.

MORGAN: “That’s since then, that was a year ago. Obviously they tried to do this with ObamaCare, they tried — ”
TYSON: “This thing really, it just really went horrible, didn’t it?”
MORGAN: “Yeah.”
TYSON: “It’s really, it’s really bad.”
MORGAN: “I mean the idea behind it, would you be supportive of the idea of bringing millions of Americans into health care, who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford it?”
TYSON: “If they can get the health care, but as of now it doesn’t seem they can get it. I was for it a 100 percent but we just have to come to the reality that it didn’t work.”
