Obamacare Has Failed The American People Says NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO
Talk about change… Back in Obama’s first term when he and Democrats were forcing Obamacare down the throats of the American people, National Public Radio was ridiculing critics with pieces like “Learn to speak Teabag.”
Your tax dollars funded this NPR video from 2010:
Now they’re admitting Obamacare has failed.
The American Thinker reported:
Even NPR agrees that Obamacare has failed
A thorough repudiation of the (un-)Affordable Care Act comes from, of all places, state-run National Public Radio. Timed to be buried by Super Tuesday coverage, NPR this week released a new study that indicates that Obamacare has failed on almost all levels.
The poll, by NPR, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, shows that three quarters of Americans think health care in their state has not improved under Obamacare. The survey says more people think health care has gotten worse (26%) than better (15%). Forty-nine percent of people think health care has stayed about the same.
And I hope you haven’t been making plans of what to do with that $2,500 a year you’ll be saving on premiums. The NPR poll confirms that that was just another in Obama’s litany of lies. Forty-five percent of respondents said their premiums had gone up, while 46% said their premiums had stayed about the same. Only 4% said their premiums had actually gone down, as Obama promised they would.
Along with higher premiums, co-pays and deductibles have gone up for 35% of people. Fifty-six percent say they’ve stayed about the same. Again, only 4% of those surveyed said their copays and deductibles have actually gone down.
Gee. If only someone had warned us.
