NYT Columnist: Obama Was ‘Honest’ About Health Care, Has Mostly Worked

New York Times columnist, Paul Krugman wrote about how Republicans have failed tremendously in trying to pass health care legislation.

He said Republicans have failed to pass an Obamacare replacement because they have been dishonest:

” “Given this history, the Republican health care disaster was entirely predictable. You can’t expect good or even coherent policy proposals from a party that has spent decades embracing politically useful lies and denigrating expertise.”

 

He compared it to when President Barack Obama advocated for the Affordable Care Act and how he was “clearheaded and honest.” Krugman also claims Obamacare has mostly “worked as advertised.”

“And let’s be clear: we’re talking about Republicans here, not the ‘political system.’”

“Democrats aren’t above cutting a few intellectual corners in pursuit of electoral advantage. But the Obama administration was, when all is said and done, remarkably clearheaded and honest about its policies. In particular, it was always clear what the A.C.A. was supposed to do and how it was supposed to do it — and it has, for the most part, worked as advertised.”

In his piece, Krugman does not include the promises that were made and then broken once Obamacare was signed into law.

Broken promises such as if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor and how health care premiums in many states have skyrocketed.
