Thanks Obama!

Obamacare is adding $112 billion to the budget deficit and national debt this year.


Sick: The biggest increase in healthcare costs in 32 years - LA Times

The U.S. Labor Department reported Friday that spending on healthcare rose last month by the biggest amount in more than three decades. This country already spends $3 trillion annually on healthcare. That represents about 17% of total economic activity. The average for all nations within the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development is 9%.

Obviously we just have too many people getting healthcare in this country, we need to have more dying in the streets, like third world hell hole countries with Republican style pay or die healthcare systems. Will Trump get that put in place for us, Libertine?

I have:

Lost my plan
Lost my doctor
Seen my premiums sky rocket
Seen my deductible go through the roof

It sucks for me. I hope I am not the norm, but from studies apparently I am and Obamacare is a huge fail.

By our estimates, Mr. Trump’s plan to repeal and replace Obamacare would cost roughly $330 billion over ten years including estimates of faster economic growth, and $550 billion under conventional scoring.

The policies would cause almost 21 million people to lose their insurance coverage, as the replacement health care policies would only cover 5 percent of the 22 million individuals who would lose coverage upon the repeal of Obamacare. This would almost double the number of Americans without health insurance.
Analysis of Donald Trump's Health Care Plan | Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget

Put some perfume on that pig of a health care plan of Trump's, would ya Libertine?

Note that this analysis does not include Mr. Trump’s call to negotiate aggressively for Medicare drugs, a policy that is not listed on his website. He has previously claimed that $300 billion a year could be saved through negotiation, a claim we rated as false because Medicare will only spend an average of $111 billion each year on prescription drugs. Based on previous estimates by CBO, actual savings would likely be small or negligible.
According to CBO, about 27 million Americans will lack health insurance coverage in 2018. Repealing Obamacare would increase that number by 22 million, whereas Mr. Trump’s replacement plan would only increase coverage by 1.1 million. In other words, the plan would increase the number of uninsured individuals by about 21 million and only cover about 5 percent of individuals that would lose coverage from Obamacare repeal.

Trump's plan is even worse.
