Healthcare premiums are going way up all over the country because of Obamacare but our liar in chief recently downplayed this fact by saying it’s only a handful of people.
That’s a lie. People are hurting throughout America because of his awful plan.
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
Obama: Health Care Premiums Going Up for Only a ‘Handful of People’
President Obama downplayed rising health care premiums under the Affordable Care Act on Thursday while campaigning for Hillary Clinton in Miami, Florida.
Obama spent time mocking Republicans for their criticism of Obamacare and then questioned their targeting of rising premiums. While Obama acknowledged there were rising premiums, he downplayed the soaring costs by saying it only applied to a “handful of people” who do not get tax credits.
“Well, now it is true, premiums are going up for a handful of people who don’t get tax credits. That’s important. We’re going to work as hard as we can to do something about it,” Obama said. “We would have already done it if the Republicans had helped, but keep in mind their alternative would have been no health insurance. That’s what they had before.”
“So the reason I point this out was you watch the press conference and what you realize is they got no plan,” Obama continued. “They want to repeal because ideologically they’re opposed to the idea of helping these 20 million people get health insurance.”
