    This year James Carville could sum up the key to the 2016 election by saying, “It’s ObamaCare, stupid.”

    Donald Trump wants to repeal ObamaCare. Hillary wants to expand it. The choice doesn’t get any clearer than that.

    Knowing this, it’s pretty clear that anyone who supports ObamaCare, supports Hillary. Anyone who despises ObamaCare and agrees it’s a disaster is endorsing Trump.

    Enter Bill Clinton.

    Do Bill and his wife even speak to each other? Who is Bill Clinton campaigning for?

    First, a little education about the conservative position on ObamCare. Here is what I’ve screamed from the highest mountains for the past eight years in thousands of commentaries, media appearances and four books:

    A) ObamaCare is a disaster for America.

    B) It’s a nightmare for middle class Americans.

    C) It’s a tragedy for small business.

    D) While poor people thinks it’s hunky dory because they get it for free (who doesn’t like free stuff?)…middle class Americans are getting hosed. Their premiums, co-pays, deductibles are doubling, tripling, even quadrupling. It’s unaffordable and unsustainable. It’s turning middle class people into poor people dependent on government to survive.

    E) Not only are premiums exploding, nothing is covered. Because of ObamaCare, health insurance no longer pays for anything.

    F) Because it’s bankrupting 28 million small businesses, it’s killing lots and lots of middle class jobs.

    G) Because no one has any money left after paying for ObamaCare bills and taxes, it’s killing consumer spending and the entire U.S. economy. This is precisely why GDP is close to zero.

    Not one Democratic politician anywhere in America either understands or is willing to admit any of this. Until now.

    Guess who now agrees with me that ObamaCare is a disaster? Former President Bill Clinton.

    You know, the guy married to Hillary.

    Bill Clinton announced it publicly just days ago in a speech in Michigan.

    Bill summed up everything I’ve been saying and writing for eight long, lonely years. I guess he’s been reading my books. Here are Bill’s words:

    “You’ve got this crazy system where all of a sudden 25 million more people have health care, and then the people who are out there busting it, sometimes 60 hours a week, wind up with their premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half and it’s the craziest thing in the world.”

    “On the other hand, the current system works fine if you’re eligible for Medicaid, if you’re a lower-income working person. If you’re already on Medicare or if you get enough subsidies on a modest income that you can afford your health care.”

    “But the people getting killed in this deal are the small-business people and individuals who make just a little bit too much to get any of these subsidies.”

    That sounded like it came straight from my book “Angry White Male.” I couldn’t have said it better myself.

    Bill Clinton just validated and vindicated all the conservative critics of ObamaCare. He just admitted that everything I have ever said about what ObamaCare was -- and is -- correct.

    Now, keep in mind that Hillary thinks ObamaCare is fantastic. She thinks it’s working just fine, with a few little tweaks. She thinks it should be dramatically expanded. She wants to raise taxes even higher. She wants more regulations. And she thinks the economy is hunky dory and we are on the verge of a great economic expansion.

    Which brings up two very important questions:

    Do Bill and his wife even speak to each other?

    Who is Bill Clinton campaigning for?

    I feel your pain, Bill. It’s almost as if he’s a POW blinking his eyes in Morse Code. He’s trying to tell us all something.

    Thank you Bill for endorsing...Donald Trump.

    Obamacare has been great for the wealthy class, it's been great for the insurance companies, it's forced doctors to get creative but even they are now prospering, it's had virtually no affect on the lower class, and it has really screwed the middle class. I see it up close every day.

    Are you kidding? They'll take in the dough with single payor... People spend other people's money like nothing and government price controls are ineffective to stop it.

    I wonder if Stalin kept a diary? I bet if he did, there would be some swell stuff in it about single payer health care. The man had a few other issues however.

    it actually hasnt been good for Insurance companies, for the first time ever I got letters from ins companies saying how they lost money last year due to more people using their insurance because of higher enrollment (obmamcare non payers). The people that actually pay get higher premiums, deductibles and copays to compensate. I got a letter telling me that they are adjusting their fee schedule to pay doctors less for each service, again to compensate. So the only people that win are the ones who are not paying a dime to get health coverage. Trust me I dont feel one bit sorry for the ins companies who have been making billions on our dime, but when it affects me and my practice then I go :wtf: Either way I have to move my office after 17 yrs cause I cannot afford the rent anymore since my collections have gone down 50% over the last few years. Oh god dammit.

    The truth is that they thought that people who were using ER's for primary care and not paying their bills would miraculously pay their deductibles and OOP's if they only had insurance.

    Bill's actually being smart here. Hillary needs to get as much distance from the disastrous Obama administration as she can. She can't step away from his amateurish, "what the hell is he thinking" foreign policy but she didn't have her active finger in Obamacare or the economy. She can't promise to fix what's broken if she pretend's nothing is broken.
