On Thursday, the GOP Obamacare repeal effort was shot down in Congress. Hours later, Barack Obama resurfaced to release a sickening statement about the situation that makes it seem like he thinks he’s still the president.
“The Republican effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act failed last night in the early hours of the morning. Last night’s vote served as the final kill shot to the seven-year Republican led-effort to repeal Obamacare,” Obama spokesman Kevin Lewis said in a statement, according to Freedom Daily. “The Affordable Care Act has always been about something bigger than politics – it’s about the character of our country. It’s about the twenty million Americans and counting who’ve gained the security and peace of mind of health insurance, and the tens of millions more who benefited from upgrades like free preventative care, such as mammograms and vaccines, and improvements in the quality of care in hospitals that have averted more than 100,000 deaths so far. It’s about the dreams protected, and the untold misery and ruin prevented.”
“Today, it remains that way because of everyone who mobilized organized and made their voices heard,” he continued. “The Affordable Care Act has made America stronger and healthier, but there will always be more work to do. President Obama has always said we should build on this law, just as members of both parties worked together to improve Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid over the years. President Obama still believes that it is possible for Congress to demonstrate the necessary bipartisanship and political courage to keep delivering on the promise of quality, affordable health insurance for every American.”
It’s disgusting that Obama felt the need to gloat and release a statement that makes it seem like he still is in power. SHARE this story if you think Obama should keep his big mouth SHUT!
