Brace Yourself, Bridget: 'Single-Payer' Health Care Is On Its Way
Never fear, though -- the feds will come to the rescue: by forcing nationalized health care down all our throats because, after all, the free market has failed.
"How concerned are you thatObamaCare could implode?" Chuck Todd, host of NBC's "Meet the Press," asked former Obama campaign manager and senior adviser David Plouffe on Sunday. Plouffe said while "almost all" of Obamacare is working, he believes it's time to consider a "public option" -- a government-run health care plan.
"So I think what will happen after this election, though, is obviously you'll have the space to say OK, what is working well? And I think almost all of it is. What needs to be strengthened? I think you'll see a lot of Republican governors now finally accept Medicaid funding."
With so many insurance companies dropping out of the Obamacare exchanges, "was bailing on a public option a mistake?" host Chuck Todd asked Plouffe. "Well, I think the president's spoken recently about that, you know, that he -- I don't think you could have gotten a public option passed, by the way. That wasn't going to get passed. You know, we barely passed this thing. So you know, I think -- but at the end of the day, the president spoke of that. And he thinks that's part of the solution going forward."
These people are simply appalling. But yeah, go ahead and elect Hillary Clinton president and enjoy four to eight more years of fundamental transformation. I dare you.
