Even Dems admitting Obamacare is in a death spiral.

A clusterfuck from day one sold on lies to Gruber's Stupids.

Now, even Democrats can see the ObamaCare death spiral.


Another day, another Democrat finally owning up to the fact that ObamaCare is a disaster. And another state facing the implosion of its health insurance market.

Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton — once one of the Affordable Care Act’s most enthusiastic champions — is the latest Democrat to publicly eat crow for that support.

With good reason: Tens of thousands of Minnesotans are losing their coverage next year. And premiums on individual plans — which enroll 250,000 North Star State residents — will rise an average 50 percent to 67 percent.

people,” Dayton admitted last week, calling the situation in his state “an emergency.”

This just a week after former President Bill Clinton blasted ObamaCare as “the craziest thing in the world,” adding that “it doesn’t make sense.”

Which is a lesson that Dayton, other governors and, more significantly, millions of Americans are learning all too well.

A nationwide Bloomberg News survey found that at least 1.4 million people in 32 states will lose their health insurance next year, as private insurers — facing massive losses — flee the market.

Please read about insurance companies leaving those states. That is if you have a brain.

There is no doubt that either Hillary or Trump will have to push to change it.

Its simply not working. The ACA is too big to go away but it needs to be reworked and quickly.

I believe even Hillary has admitted this.

This was not tricky to figure out, insurance companies are a business and will not tolerate losses. Add to that there is little or no incentive for younger people to pay for health insurance at high rates when it is cheaper to take the penalty. Less money in the pool means everything falls by the wayside.

To save themselves, many of the left's politicos are trying to distance themselves from their proudest moment.

Internal polling is driving these shifts and 'atonements'.....they are being made aware how angry their constituency is. and of course, their only concern is how congressional races will fare.
