(TNS) Supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders, the Democrat pretender, interviewed ahead of the New Hampshire primaries this week gave all sorts of reasons why they don’t like Obamacare.
As reported by Townhall, most of the reasons had to do with the ‘high cost’ of care and insurance premiums.

“I think Obamacare’s kinda s**t,” Nicki from Stratham, N.H. said.
“When I had it before I was paying like $300 a month and I was making maybe $15 an hour so that wasn’t working for me at all,” she explained. “And I just don’t see it getting better anytime soon.”
“I don’t want the option of private health care like the other Democratic candidates,” she continued. “Because I don’t think that’s going to work.”
She also complained about the profit margins in healthcare, which she says are too “high” and must be “tackled.”
Amanda from Sandy, Utah, who works in health care (though it wasn’t clear if she is a healthcare provider or if works on the corporate end) said she has seen the “disparities” that exist in the industry.
The only way to fix them, she claims, is to get rid of ‘income inequality.’
“I think there needs to be an overhaul,” she said. “I don’t think Obamacare went far enough.”
Amanda added that when Democrats had majorities in the House and Senate during Obama’s first two years in office, they should have gone full-boat socialized medicine with “universal healthcare.”
She — and many others — are backing Sanders’ “Medicare for All.” And that is going precisely according to plans.
Failing to pass universal healthcare in 2010 wasn’t as much political cowardice as it was part of a long-term, carefully orchestrated plan. Americans can’t just been forced into giving up liberties and freedom such as the ability to buy their own health coverage and determine their own plan levels. They have to ‘get there’ on their own or, at least, seemingly on their own.
They have to be conditioned to accept something they don’t initially want, in other words. And that takes time.
The fact is, Obamacare — named after the former president who lied repeatedly to sell it to the country, as did the Democrat Party — was never supposed to be the end-all, be-all piece of legislation that would “fix” all that ails the healthcare industry.
In fact, even before the misnamed Affordable Care Act was passed, the healthcare industry was already suffering under the crushing weight of regulations — the single-biggest reason why it’s so expensive to being with (ever notice how the lawyers who populate Congress never enact ‘Obamacare-like’ regulations on the legal industry?).
In short, Obamacare isn’t working because it was designed to fail, as then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) readily admitted in August 2013. And it was designed to fail precisely so Democrats could propose full-on, government-controlled healthcare to a pre-conditioned American public made to suffer under a decade’s worth of Obamacare mandates and expenses.
The Las Vegas Sun reported:
In just about seven weeks, people will be able to start buying Obamacare-approved insurance plans through the new health care exchanges.
But already, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is predicting those plans, and the whole system of distributing them, will eventually be moot.
Reid said he thinks the country has to “work our way past” insurance-based health care during a Friday night appearance on Vegas PBS’ program “Nevada Week in Review.”
“What we’ve done with Obamacare is have a step in the right direction, but we’re far from having something that’s going to work forever,” Reid said.
When then asked by panelist Steve Sebelius whether he meant ultimately the country would have to have a health care system that abandoned insurance as the means of accessing it, Reid said: “Yes, yes. Absolutely, yes.”
And of course, Bernie voted for Obamacare.
So, just to be clear:
— The same Democrats who passed a healthcare law they knew would fail are the same Democrats who imposed the crippling costs on voters who are now complaining about those costs.
— They are the same Democrats who now claim that their ‘end-all, be-all’ legislation to “fix healthcare” was a lie and a scam the entire time.
— And some of these same Democrats running for president now say the only way forward — full-on government healthcare, which was really the objective all along — is the only way to go.
If more Americans, including Bernie voters, knew about this plot to deceive them and rob them of their economic well-being, they’d reject every single Democratic healthcare proposal for generations.
